Here for lunch prior to our trek. A free little taster to start the meal. Healthy salads which went down well with a beer. Friendly owner and can recommend.

Such a nice change- the fresh salads, soup and pasta options were delightful. Great to eat a hearty salad with no fear of illness. Lovely rooftop location with well trained staff. Highly recommend.

What a joy after two weeks trekking up Everest. Lovely rooftop setting, quiet, smart and the owner is on top of everything. Takes orders and checks each plate as it leaves the highly visible, immaculate kitchen. A real pro.. Lovely food.
