Been there three times, first time about noon to get shisha, which was fine enough to visit again. Second time on very busy evening. Waiter refused to give us masala tea, as it was too busy - he preferred to serve beers for $5 to...More

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Nargila. The chicken shawarma was exceptionally good- it was nice to not eat rice and lentils. The shawarma had a level of flavour akin to Taka Taka in Bristol (hey Taka Taka give us free stuff)....More

Stopping for dinner at Nagrila Restaurant has been by far the worst decision of my entire life. The waiter was really apathic and unfriendly to the customers. They had me waiting for almost an hour (about 50 minutes) for a cheeseburger that was not even...More

We really enjoyed our dinner to Nargila. The falafel sandwich were perfect, so were the french fries and the home-made garlic mayonnaise. The staff is really friendly. We will come back next time in Kathmandu.

Today we had a very enjoyable lunch at Nargila restaurant. The food was great and inexpensive and the Middle Eastern dishes were very good. The waitors were friendly and this place is highly recommended for a low key lunch or dinner.

Good food, but warm beer took 15 mins, hummus 25 mins and babaganoush another 15 mins to reach the table. By 90 mins the chicken shawarma had still not appeared. The place was 1/3 full so it wasn't the crowd. All kitchen and wait staff...More
