We had a nice lunch here - very mellow atmosphere (but smoking inside we didn't like). Service was a little slow but this is typical in Kathmandu. I had pesto momos- the dough actually has pesto and there is veg filling with great sauch for dipping. They were delicious! My boyfriend had quesadillas which were also great. The mint lemonade was extraordinary as well. Wish we could com back!

“Our saviour in KTM”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Literally.. We had been trekking for like 2 weeks, stayed in all kinds of dirty and uncorfortable places. For those who've not yet been in KTM, Nepal. The place is dirty as it gets, quite horrible tbh. But the Places was our ticket out. Clean, cozy, confortable, cheap, delicious and all together nice!!

“Nice place, pretty tasty food”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

This place has a nice atmosphere if you're looking for somewhere casual to eat, and it's decorated with some awesome art. The staff were nice and the food was very tasty. The only criticism I'd have is that the pastry on our moussaka was as hard as nails. Other than that, decent!

“Respite from Thamel”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I had lunch here during much recent three week stay in Thamel and would have returned again if on my own (my friends preferred dining with more meat selections). The wait staff was very friendly and welcoming and atmosphere pleasant--you do have to remove shoes and sit on the floor (amidst comfortable pillows) in the non smoking section.

I selected the sampler menu and all items were extremely tasty and wholesome. Prices are very reasonable, compared to the regular Thamel restaurant scene.

It's a very relaxing place, quite the opposite of the streets in Thamel and many of its restaurants. Note: there was a rather loud patron who seemed very full of himself, so you can't escape all obnoxious sounds all of the time.

Hi Movie Geek - thank you for your review and thanks for promoting the 2nd of the seven corners of Thamel. Despite your friends kept you from Places at times, we appreciate you left with them - food is nothing without friends :)
