“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Had lunch here on a friends recommendation. Wow. Although under renovations food was prompt, delicious and extremely well priced. Although a little difficult to find, this is an excellent establishment and well worth the extra effort to locate.

This cafe/restaurant is lovely. It has a great atmosphere, yummy food and the service is superb. Free good wifi, so you can sit in the sun sip a lovely drink and contact home.

“Fresh food and real organic brewed coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

After trekking in Nepal for 20 days this spot was an oasis. It's outside so bring a jacket for the chilly morning! Milk coffee was made from organic BREWED coffee (NO NESCAFE) and warmed milk. My breakfast had fresh tropical fruit and delicious yogurt. Very attentive staff, clean and beautiful outdoor patio area.

“Hard to find but well worth the effort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

I had been looking for this restaurant when we had been in Kathmandu previously but had failed. We then came upon it quite by accident on our second spell in the city. I wish that we had found it the first time.

The menu was both extensive and varied and any amendments to certain meals were complied with gladly. The food when it arrived was excellent and obviously very fresh. The service was first class and the prices were very reasonable indeed for both food and drink. (It is important to note that many restaurants in Kathmandu add on 15% VAT and 10% service - the prices here were as shown on the menu - all inclusive.) Add in free WiFi, a delightful setting and ambience in the middle of the chaos of Kathmandu and this place would take some beating.

Seek it out - it's worth it.
