“Thamel close to Hotel Friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

It was very good food and served real coffee. Most of all we felt safe eating there. We were always looking for places that we felt the kitchen was clean.

“Great restaurant, service and people.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

We were staying above Gaia restaurant and we were greeted by the manager with a lovely cup of ginger, honey and lemon tea, (ginger warmer highly recommended!) We had breakfast, lunch and dinner a few times and all the staff are so friendly and attentive. The prices are so reasonable and the service was so quick and always with a smile. Definately worth a visit, we didn't want to leave and will be back as soon as we can!

The restaurant is very clean, varied food and excellent service. Many tourists come here. The prices are a little too high, but worth the visit.

Gaia restaurant has great dishes for vegies and non-vegies. I love the Humus with pita bread! The masala tea is delicious... Friendly service and very good prices.

“Good Food, Great Service, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

The restaurant has a great ambiance. The courtyard has a fireplace, nice touch. My husband and I had dinner take out several times. The food is good and price is reasonable. We tried their salads, sandwiches and the penne pasta with meat sauce. They were all tasty. The service was prompt (keep it up!). We made an excellent choice visiting this restaurant.
