The restaurant is tucked away in the bylanes of Jham Sikhel on the outskirts of Kathmandu.
Its difficult to find because the signage is poor and not many people even in Jham Sikhel know about it. But we had gone on the advice of good friends who know Kathmandu and who travel a lot. So we took the trouble and the time to locate the place and were welcomed by a homely , warm atmosphere. We took one of the tables in the garden and ordered what we had come looking for, steak.
The steak and the other beef dish were both tough and unchewable. We sent the steak back and the replacement was only marginally better.
When we enquired we were told it was the chef's day off and even the sous chef was away. Maybe our steak had been cooked by the cleaning lady, or one of the waiters. For a restaurant whose reputation spreads as far as among the cognoscenti of Delhi, we were sorely disappointed, and returned hungry.
Our advice to restaurants to deal with the chef's day off is to tell diners what dishes are not available. Its better than trying to pass off substandard, inedible dishes and ruining your word of mouth reputation.
