“A relaxing break in a busy town”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I travelled to Kathmandu by myself and although I loved it, I did need some time away from the hustle and bustle. This place is very peaceful and well run. Friendly staff - when I first arrived I did not have Nepalese money and thought I would use eftpos - when that was not going to work the staff were happy for me to run across the road to change some currency.
The food was good - worth a try is the honey and ginger tea.

“nothing special”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

A restaurant in a garden like many ones in thamel if you search a litlle bit. The food was not really good, i have a mediteranean salad with no tomato but cauliflower instead wich is quiet weird, but not as weird as the cheese remplacing the cottage cheese. At the end we ask a sirkani ( usually its a nice curd with some raisins nuts and cinnamon), look like they take us for some idiots cause the only things we've got its a sweet curd with a bit of cinamon on the top. I will not recomend this place

“Very good place in town! Best food.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I think this is one of the best place in town to eat delicious food. I love buff momo in this restaurant. I treied diffrent meals and was also very good, except spinach, which i just would like to treied ;) Location is very good, it's not next to busy road so it's not noisy there. The stuff is very good and friendly! Next time if I will be in Kathmandu, I will come back here.
