“Great value and wonderful staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

All day menu - great breakfasts, snacks and full meals. Both Asian and western dishes at very reasonable prices, this must be the best value in Thamel. Lovely place to chill out with a nice courtyard garden and frequented by locals, tourists and volunteers. Good place to meet people. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Free WiFi. Open from 6am till late.

“"Excellent service and good food"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Me and my friends visited Gaia couple of weeks back and to my surprise the service was phenomenal. I ordered Spaghetti and in 8 mins the food was on my table. Truly remarkable service by the Gaia Team. The food tasted great as well. And price was reasonable too. So everyone should pay a visit to this restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant .

“Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great food, service, atmosphere. Their americano is like a triple espresso, which might not suit all tastes. Consistent, well-presented, great value.
