I really can't understand why this place is full every night - was there twice, both times against my better judgement. Service is surly and brusque, bordering on rude, our orders were wrong and it took an argument with the waiter before he checked and took them away - straight to another talbe, although was had tasted ours ! Service is also slow. On one occasion, pieces of my chicken were undercooked. Prices are unjustifiably high.

This place is tucked down a busy street but is set outside with candles and great lighting that make it a lovely place for dinner. The service IS slow so you have to be patient and it is usually very busy so you may not even get a table. The food is OK - you wouldn't rave about it, but I would still recommend you go here just for the feel of the place. We didn't have any problem with smokers when we went there.

Came here in the evening. Trying to escape the pollution of Kathmandu. This place however is incredibly smoky. Nearly everyone in the place was smoking. Sort of ruined it.

They have the best apple pie in probably all of Nepal. That's a goddamn fact. And their food is pretty good. Solid Greek salad, excellent lemon chicken, and really delicious sauce to accompany their chicken momos. Also, 290 THB for a (smallish) glass of wine ain't too shabby.

However, their service is deplorable. They miscalculated the totals for me and every one of my dining companions two nights in a row (always on the high side). It takes forever to get a menu, and once you do, the staff is likely to forget about you. With 13% VAT and 10% service charge, this place is too lax to justify their expensiveness.

Come for a glass of wine and that apple pie à la mode, but then head to many of the other places in Thamel that really deserve and act like they value your business.

I stopped by for cappuccino and pastry one afternoon. It has a comfortable ambiance and the outdoor area had only one smoker; the waiter was very busy and apologized for it. The capp was good, the chocolate cake mediocre. VAT and service charge tend to make even a midday repast pricey.
