The Mexican dishes are really good! Burritos/tacos/quesadillas, etc. all great. Good wine and beer selection. Prices reasonable. They had local entertainment the night we were there and it was a lot of fun. Service was excellent. We also went here for breakfast on 2 mornings...More

We went at the end of our Everest Base Camp Tour and there was a group of 11 of us. The food was fantastic, however, when paying for our individual bills at the end, the waiter tried to over-charge us BIG TIME. The only reason...More

I chose to eat at this restaurant just because I went to Carleton College, and I have to admit that it was EXACTLY like Northfield, MN. The Mexican food was average, it was a little cold outside, and the people were extremely nice but probably...More

Popped in here as looked attractive and nice crowd of traveller/tourists. Took a while to get a menu and order to be taken and when we did, they didn't have half the things on the menu due to a festival and lack of staff. So...More

A table for five in a not too busy restaurant seated promptly. Drinks order taken promptly and food order about ten minutes after arriving. Nothing too complicated - five curries. However, it took 70 minutes for the food to arrive and that was only after...More

We walked by this restaurant in Thamel, heard the ethnic music, nice setting, seemed crowded so we decided to eat there. House wine was good, music was good. Service was not great, and the food was poor. I had Sizzling Chicken. It was a terrible...More

We went here on our penultimate night in Nepal and we were thoroughly disappointed. The food is bland Western food (unfortunately our guide insisted on taking us to Western places, even though we wanted authentic food). I did, however, opt for pizza as I had...More

Went to dine here with friends at 7.30. Restaurant was around a quarter full. From the start the waiter taking our order was very rude and obnoxious. He would roll his eyes and keep looking at his watch if we asked a question about the...More

With so much to choose from don't be tempted by the bright lights and nice garden setting. The food was cold and probably the worst we ate during our stay in Thamel. The waiter quickly apologised and gave us a discount, must be used to...More

Really disappointed. Worst service and meal we had in two weeks touring around Nepal. Place was almost empty when we ordered a late lunch. Really slow service, waiters didn’t seem bothered and when the pizza eventually arrived it was poor. Avoid this place. So many...More
