“paradise by the lake”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

The first moment I entered THE SAMAY, it felt like this is what the people define as paradise. It exactly was a paradise for me because the lake nearby and hills a bit far made it a wonderland to fall in love and the beautiful restaurant with great service, food and tents made me marry them. I felt like my thirst of peace and serenity has been quenched by THE SAMAY.

“Wonderful hideaway”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

A little bit far away from our hotel, but it was worth the ride there. Nice place by the lake. Very peaceful. Encountered hailstorm while we were eating, it was fun listening to the pitter-patter of the ice on the tents. Food is quite good. Definitely a place for a relaxing meal and reading/walking by the lake.

“Serene magical place”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Samay is so located that you are near the hub of Pokhara City, Lakeside, yet not so much that the city noise and chaos disturbs you. Situated at the rear end of Few Lake, where Harpan Khola starts expanding to form the awesome Lake, this restaurant is a peaceful, serene cove of delight serving delicious fresh food. The ambiance, the people and the food is so great I feel like I go go there for "spiritual healing" . Samay also offers boating, fishing, and swings for those interested to do a little fun stuff. I stayed in Pokhara for a year, and Samay was my favorite getaway. I say that you haven't experience all the aspect of Pokhara until you've visited this place. It will delight you so much.

“Pokhara the way it should be”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Super place, my favourite in Pokahara (and I've been quite a few times). Quiet, beautiful, great service and menu. No better place in a 100-mile radius to enjoy a beer. Their milk tea was a treat too, and so was food. Better than anything on the main lakeside drag, and well worth the effort to get there.
