“Good food, cheap, clean and friendly - a great budget restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

This restaurant has a range of Nepali and Western food. The food is basic but good and the prices are very cheap. I mainly eat here for breakfast but have also had an evening meal. The American Breakfast is huge!. Coffee is good as is the Masala tea. The owner Mannil and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is very clean and has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Good location in central Thamel.

“My number #1 choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

I came here once while i was looking for a restaurant to eat and i kept coming! The food is delicious and there's a good variety, and the prices are budget friendly. The most important thing is the staff there: the young waiters were so eager to serve and help, and their honest smile and agility made for a pleasant stay.

“Great food and budget tours as well”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

The food was yummy! I had a simple American breakfast and it was huge! Tasted just like home! It was about 300 rupees. The owner even had breakfast with my mother and I. The owner has big dreams. His story is quite interesting. It's definitely worth sitting down to hear. His restaurant pays the bills but his passion is Nepal and all it has to offer. He will guide you in whatever direction you wish. He cares about his customers and is HONEST. I know that while traveling abroad you will be approached by many people trying to sell you anything under the sun. We looked around for affordable prices to go rafting but this man offered us the best price. $40 each person to include lunch. Compared to all of the other companies we checked out this was best. The owner was once a trekking guide and is very knowledgable on the subject.
