“Excellent setting”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Tranquil garden setting right off the busy square; good escape from the hubbub and crowds.
Not 'fine dining' but food and service was OK, and was good value.

Gets busy over lunchtime, so I suggest you go straight here on arrival and book a table. Then do your sightseeing and come back to relax after all the hustle and bustle.

“Forgetable food but tranquil garden setting”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Food is not the reason to come here but it is passable - liked the wonton soup for a change of pace. The garden setting closed off from the Durbar square madness is the real attraction for tourists with tired feet and postcards to write. Can revive you on a nice Spring or Fall day in the Valley.

“Slow and bad food”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Nice place but poor service and not good food. Don't get the chicken burger or masala tea. And don't go here f you're hungry and need food in a hurry.

“Long waiting time when you are hungry”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Garden restaurant is just beside one of the most popular restaurants of Bhaktapur, so it caters to most of the spillover crowd. During the peak hours you hardly get any place empty. The waiting time of 30 to 40 minutes is too long. We ordered chicken curry with rice and non veg chili. The quality of the former was good but the chili was too hard to savour. The ambiance of the place is wonderful. If one has time to spare and one is not hungry then there is no place better than this. The pricing is also moderate. Food is presented tastefully.

“Order juju dau in here :)”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stop at the this resto before our trip to Nagarkot, its clean and very well designed. Choose the garden area, will cool you off from Baktapur heat, and order the infamous Baktapur cuisine: Juju Dau, a large plate of super rich creamy home made yogurt with unforgettable taste:) food here is quite expensive, but I was told, it was cheaper than any other restaurant located in Durbar Square. Food...its ok, they specialized in Nepali and Chinese cuisine, so choose wisely
