“Oily croissants”
Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for a coffee after the farmer's market on Sunday (jawalakhel location). The coffee was fine but the croissant was stale and it tasted of rancid oil - I guess it might have been reheated in a pan. I didn't expect anything amazing but this was below any standards.
However the atmosphere was great and my toddler enjoyed the plastic toy which gave us 10 minutes of freedom.

“An Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

New Orleans Cafe offers good food in a relaxed setting. The garden is lovely and the indoor seating is also comfortable. Offering non-smoking areas is a refreshing sight in a city where smoking indoors is acceptable and widely practiced. I chose the lemon chicken last night, which was very tasty. The mash that the chicken breast was laid on was excellent as were the rest of the vegetables. After living in Kathmandu for over a year, I would have to say that the chicken breast is argubly the best in town for one that hasn't been stuffed anyway.

“Just ok”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Had heard this was a great place to eat, but sadly I was disappointed. The waiters were so busy flirting with the young girls that others were neglected.

“Small restaurant with great Indian food”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is a small restaurant in Thamel that delivers on great Indian food. There is also a section of the restaurant that is a wine bar, but we stuck with Everest beers.
