Owner description: The Garden of Dreams, a neo classical historical garden, is situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden's design has much in common with formal European gardens: paved perimeter paths, punctuated by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surrounded by a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It is an architectural landscape that encourages the visitor to stroll around and discover the Garden's treasures from many different vantage points.

Well worth a visit. Dragged two friends along who hadn't heard of it and they were delighted that I did. It's such a juxtaposition between the beautiful scented gardens and the lepers and street children begging outside. We had a Bombay sapphire and tonic at the Kaiser Cafe in the gardens and it was a blissful experience in the most beautiful gardens I have ever been in - all for RS200.

A nice 'man this city is dirty and loud, I need to escape for a bit' kind of place. It's a beautifully restored colonial garden. Bring a book, stay for a while. Enjoy the Kaiser Cafe, for good western food.

We greatly enjoyed a visit to this beautiful garden, a veritable oasis in the middle of Kathmandu's downtown chaos, with the pleasure of having a great meal. Good service, good value and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended if you have a spare few hours in Kathmandu.

Lovely relaxing place in the middle of Kathmadu, Thamel.
We had a nice meal in the restaurant within the gardens and we were so happy that this tranquil retreat has been created.
