The biggest disappointment food wise and service wise in Nepal.
Ill start with the positive, the location is good and the décor is nice and there are a few items that seem interesting on the menu
Now all the rest. I visited the place as a single person, I was placed to sit in a small room next to a table of 8 that was extremely noisy. Waited for the waiter for 15 min to ask to move, he didn’t come so I just stood up and headed to another table which they didn’t want me to take cause it is for 4. After I said that im leaving they allowed me to sit. The entire evening it was like that – good and attentive service to the big tables and minimal attention to the small tables.
The food and beverages are pricey compared to other places in thamel, and the food isn’t better. Its just average. Good but average
As it is in the vicinity of such better places like friends or OR2K it seems a waste to visit there

We had an office function here with more than 30 people. The food was horrendous! Fish tasted like cardboard, margaritas were watery, cheicken was so dry and hard it could have been used as a hammer.. A very bad experience overall and we swore never to make the same mistake again...

New Orleans makes the best Western style breakfast in Thamel, hands down! Try the eggs hollandaise or even the full English!

This restaurant is the only place that I return to during my 5 week stay in Nepal, it has brilliant atmosphere near night time and the burgers are superb and very filling. Both times I ordered the King burger with 2 patties and an ice cream blend. It is nice to find a place with nice music playing and good food to relax with.

The New Orleans cafe is a nice restaurant down an alley in Thamel offering very good western and Nepalese food. They have a patio, covered restaurant and even a non-smoking section which is great. Nicely decorated the reataurant offers great food at reasonable prices, good coffee and a full bar. It is busy on weekend nights but during the week is quiet. There is live entertainment on the weekend as well.
