“Good clean food”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Great atmosphere with staff that speak good english. The restaurant was quiet which is a change and the prices were reasonable. I ordered pork chops, and the serving size was very good with 2 pieces of pork chops. Finished off with some apple pie and ice cream which was on the sweet side but still tasty.

“Brilliant service and nice food in a peaceful garden setting”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

We visited on a few occasions. The organic garden salad was outstanding, and would also recommend the warm apple pie with ice cream. Veg momos and thali were good value, but unfortunately we found flavour was lacking in some vegetarian dishes. The coffee here is also decent. Service is really excellent - we felt very well looked after by all of the staff.

“We love this place!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Really nice owner and staff, they care a lot. Food is delicious, and just feels great to be there. We've enjoyed the fish, the Thukpa (vegetables soup), mango juice, quite a few chicken dishes.. it was all very tasty actually.

“Excellent everything”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went here about 6 times. The organic green salad was divine! The fresh leaves, pine nuts, apple slices and pomegranate was delicious. The dressing was quite sweet, but wasnt drowned in it. The rosemary chicken is to die for! A must try for anyone who comes here! The service was fantastic, attentive and always available. The garden setting is beautiful, quite romantic with candles. The noise from nearby was quite annoying and loud, but not bad enough to stop me coming here to eat. Free wifi, clean western bathroom, fast service, beautiful restaurant.

“not exactly #1 material”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I had lunch here because it was #1 on TripAdvisor. It is a nice little place but nothing special. The menu is similar to the majority of tourist places. I almost feel bad to write something negative - it's really okay but it is just not #1 material.

Bijay K, Manager at Rosemary Kitchen & Coffee Shop, responded to this review, September 4, 2013
We would like to thank you for going through Rosemary Kitchen and Coffee Shop’s comments.
We are glad and feel privileged to be ranked number 1 in Trip Advisor List and we assure all our guests and well wishers that we will try our level best to cling to the qualities and to upgrade (in rooms possible and needed) to retain its position.
After assessing, we have found out that you have not visited our restaurant and reviewed without actually experiencing it. Your approach is just like shooting bullets randomly which is sure to miss the target. Hence, I would like to request you not to write such random reviews. You are always welcome in our restaurant. Kindly visit us, try our food, observe and experience our services and facilities and write a fair review about it so that your opinions will be respected. You have targeted our restaurant which is currently ranked #1; the other restaurants which are favored by your reviews too offer much similarity in their menus and services.
Since you have wrote that our restaurant doesn’t have the materials of # 1, we would like to know what essentially makes a restaurant No. 1? What sort of materials are you looking for??? We believe quality food, quality service and good environment are the essential factors that make any restaurant, a Number 1 restaurant.
Being a Manager, I personally go to each table and get feedback of our food and service from our esteemed guests. We pay our full attention to our guests.
P.S. Yes, you may like or dislike something even though that may be loved by most of the people. However, if everyone starts writing random reviews as you did, it is almost sure that in coming days, no tourists are going to visit restaurants reading the reviews of trip advisor.
