they have outdoor seats, but these are near the road noise and pollution. They have indoor seats and cloth (rather than paper) napkins/serviettes, which my father says is one of the signs of civilization. The minestrone, goulash and chocolate pudding cake I've had at various times, and enjoyed.

Becareful what you order and make sure it entails no changes as a half plate of spinich was given a price tag of 350 rupees more than a meal. The manger totally ignored our challenge of the bill and luaghed.

Service is prompt and friendly, food is fresh and of a high quality, plenty of choice but not too much choice, seating area a real sun trap but there are shaded areas to shelter from the warm sun, inside seating also available, staff helpful and friendly, offer advice about where to visit whilst in Kathmandu value for money and exceeded our expectations of a cafe/restaurant in a third world country!

Namaste, My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant purely by chance and had one veg omelette, two toast, one cheese/tomato croissant and two glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice all for 500 nps (£3.50). The food here is delicious, in fact we go every morning for breakfast. We have two large banana pancakes at 200 nps (£1.40) for both! The restaurant is not really visible and obviously has not had many reviews, so I guess that's why it is currently listed 87 out of 225 restaurants - which is a shame because it is definitely great value for money. We spoke with the new Manager today Ramesh who took over three days ago and he is excited about the new changes he is going to make. Le Bistro has been operating for 33 years and needs a little decor update and a fresh start which we believe Ramesh will achieve. Lovely staff and fantastic food, give it a try and if you meet Ramesh tel him Linda and David from Manchester, England recommended it. x

Stumbled upon this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. They have a lovely terrace that provides some serenity from the busy streets of Thamel.
We ordered from the Tandoori/Indian menu and was so impressed we returned a week later after our travels around Nepal.
The service can be a little slow, but it is worth it. The price is very reasonable (VAT and service already pre-included).
There is also a nice bakery below that you can pick up snacks/quick bites for cheap.
