“Very Average food - Poor Service. Avoidable.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This restaurant drew our attention because it was vegetarian and talked about a good view.
The ambience is really good, we went to the inner area, where there is a view of the hill and parts of the city below.
The food is passable, i wont term it horrible, but you would end up getting stuff that you wouldn't expect, we tried nachos and tacos, which were far from authentic, in fact it seemed like their own version of tacos and nachos, which were pretty ok.
Never order fresh lime soda, it was pathetic, the worst i have ever had in my life.
They have a board that mentions self-service, however they at times do take orders from the table. The service is horrible, they dont seem to understand what you have ordered most of the times. They are indifferent to any special request, we had asked for additional sauce for the nachos, they refused outright, even when we offered to bear the additional charge, they simply refused to co-operate, Strange!
You may avoid this restaurant. It is definitely not value for money.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We had some hot chocolate to warm us up, this was a very clean, pleasant place.

Located in a central place, close to everything it's hard to miss it.

If you're feeling cold and need to warm up that's the place to go.

It's a bit pricey.

“Average fare, great views”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The views from the dining area are fantastic. The food is quite average = tried out the samosas and expresso - Expresso was made from instant coffee and not very enjoyable.

“Come for a cup of Coffee”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is a road-side cafe for price conscious travellers. It provides tea, coffee and juice at reasonable price. It promotes self service and some times behaves indifferently.

“The best momos I ever had!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have had my share of momos but hese were unbeliveable. The thinnest envelopes with veg stuffing ( they do only veg momos) but really they were worth killing for. The coffee and tea was also remarkable. The place needs to do more momos:)
