Went here with tour group prior to setting of on trek. We had great food with brilliant atmosphere. Owner served plenty of complementary Roksie - a local whisky, in small pottery dishes. Warmed in the mouth it can be ignighted! Hot lips for some. Dancing show provided, which was areal treat. Very reasonably priced for a restaurant - with show. It set the mood for a great night out. Highly recommended.

I went here on a friend's recommendation for a traditional Nepalese dinner.

The set course is excellent, and in my opinion good value for money at ~1000 per person. I left full and satisfied.

The service was okay and the atmosphere was okay. The restaurant is in the courtyard of an old house.

This meant Mosquitos and bugs. You should WEAR LONG PANTS or use bug
spray.

I ate at this restaurant with a group following a trek as was very impressed with both the food & the restaurant design & Nepalese dancing as a poetic backdrop. I can't comment on the price as I was lucky enough to be treated to a set menu banquet but the Nepalese cocktail was only 350npr, delicious & a strong mix of vodka, gin, lime & pineapple juice.

The restaurant is like a big open garden once inside & you can either eat outside with 5 star service @ tables or upstairs sitting on mats Jspanese style.

Amazing salad & veggies to start then dhal, 4 vegie dishes including paneer & a yoghurt/rice dessert. I have included several photos of the food

Our hotel arranged for a dinner for several gusts at this restaurant one night. We had the set menu which provides an opportunity to ssample several types of Newari/Nepali foods. Nice place to hang out at night, with low lights, nice atmosphere. Great for groups.

Try the set menu - you can taste the traditional newari food. They do have "cultural dances" where these three young women look extremely uncomfortable/unhappy about dancing. They either really don't want to be there at all or they have never seen what they look like dancing. It makes everyone at the tables uncomfortable....
