My second breakfast in the city was at Northfield Cafe because quite-frankly the food was good. On entering Northfield Cafe, I was tended to, given a good seat and told to relax. I was guided to a seat beneath a patio window, I was told it was warm. It was. The sun shone above but not in my eyes. I... More

The food was average but the staff was very warm and were able to make an immediate personal connect with the guest and gave full personal attention.

Loved this place for breakfast. I went here multiple times over the month every week. The organic Nepali coffee is amazing...brewed to perfection. I loved the banana pancake the Nepali style potatoes were delicious. The staff, especially the manager, is so kind and very aware to get the customer exactly what is ordered or custom ordered. Lunch is also great... More

Enjoyed a great BBQ chicken at this café as part of a group visit. Great ambience sitting out in the courtyard at night time. Huge menu selection. Service was attentive and prompt.

So good we dined 3 times of our 4 nights in Kathmandu. Fajitas are fantastic. Burgers awesome too. Only disappointment my chimichanga was a bit dry and served with fries (even though id ordered a side dish of fries as well). A bit pricier than some places, but still good value.

I recommand you of going there for breakfast : it is not very cheap but is scrumptious and decent. You should taste their cornflakes with banana and honey.

This is a relatively big "tourist" restaurant just off the main shopping street in Thamel. Personally I did not like the music as it made it more difficult to have a conversation at the table. Pizza was ok , but nothing special.

I ordered the spicy, crunchy chicken burger (regular American price), and was very disappointed. The patty tasted and looked more like tofu than chicken. The buns were spongy and a little hard to chew. The burger was neither spicy nor crunchy. On the positive side, the fries and music were great. As a US student going to college in Northfield,...

Went here twice in a few days, both times for lunch. Food was good and reasonably priced (for a tourist place). It is just off the Thamel main shopping street and has a huge number of seats, but if you see its fairly full when you walk in you might want to reconsider, when its busy the kitchen really did...
