“Great Japanese food in Thamel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

If your getting a bit over Nepali food or the usual western food in KTM then this place is for you. We went here twice for some tasty and quick food and weren't disappointed both times. Portion sizes are great, the service is good and the atmosphere just right.

“Tasty Japanese food in Thamel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Nothing beats ramen on a rainy day when you've got a cold. I was extremely happy to have found this place. Granted it's Japanese food with a slight Nepali twist, it's pretty darn close! For RS500 two of us got ramen and gyoza. Tea is free and while the wait staff aren't particularly friendly the food made up for it. The donburis and tempura looked really good. Will have to try those tomorrow...

“A Rare Find In Kathamandu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

We stayed 2doors away and eaten twice throughout our 7days visit. This is a very small outlet with less than 10tables,opened from 11am-9pm daily. the Nepalese staff is efficient. Tonkatsu is cooked with Japanese rice, however the pork here is rather chewy, especially the fats and tendon part. We had the very huge portion of sushi, Chasyu Ramen & Yakitori during the 2nd visit, the barbeque chicken is too sweet and overcooked, but the other 2items really kept our stomach filled and satisfiied. If you do not order any beverage, Japanese tea will be served-FOC.

“Lucky find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We were stolling in Thamel, looking for gifts to take home, when we spotted this little restaurant.
They make nice tasty and cheap dishes.
Worth a visit if you want to eat something fast and unusual.
