I was there before on 1/1/17 for the afternoon. The setting made me want to sit for a cup of fabulous Nepali Masala Tea! I sat in the tea salon part in one of the pavilions - there are 3 or 4 seating areas with different styles all serving the same menu. I also had the apple pie - delicious... More

This place is really expensive for Nepalese standards. I only came for a drink, and I felt like the staff was not pleased with my small and simple order, which did not make me feel at ease. The garden is nice but relatively small, and requires a 200 RS entrance fee. If you need some rest, go find a cheap... More

The Garden of Dreams, Kaiser Mahal is truly the garden of dreams. What an absolutely peaceful spot. To take a breathe, smell a symphony of flora and fauna, have a delightful meal. It is a five minute walk from my favorite hotel - the Annapuna - in one direction and in the other one enters into a busy market environment.... More

Every afternoon after pounding the streets of Kathmandu I came here to regain my peace of mind. Some of the buildings have been damaged by the earthquake but it is still a lovely place to be. The display about the development of the garden is interesting and it's a great place to people watch: the local families and lovers finding... More

The Garden of Dreams is a lovely peaceful place in the heart of Kathmandu. The Kaiser Restaurant is OK but not exceptional. Service is quite slow.

Peaceful, calm place in the centre of chaotic and dirty city.. It was funny to see all those little squirrels running around but there were also too many flies and that was not as nice. . Waiters were kind and fast and the coffee really good.

One of those special places that is deserving of a visit each time I come to Kathmandu. They have created a very special atmosphere and one can sit in peace with a range of most delicious foods in the surrounding cafes.
