Totally unexpected service. After the food was served; not even a single staff came to attend us for almost 20mins. There was no staff seen around. When we complained about it no one was bothered at all. There was no apology at all.we left the meal in between and left with a bad experience. How can restaurants behave so rudely... More

This place is an absolutely ripoff, highway robbery at its finest. Me and a friend went here to eat dal bhat, we've tried many restaurants around Ktm and never once have we had to pay for dal. This is by far the worst experience I've had.There are dozens of thakalis which are cheaper as well as better tasting if you... More

This restaurant has 2 floors, there might be a 3rd floor although I didnt check this out as the restaurant is split into two areas, indoor and outdoor areas. Outdoor dining area has a small garden and has plenty of seatings with large umbrellas covering each table. Very large restaurant with plenty of car parking available. Set back about 50... More

A friend invited for dinner yesterday and it's my first time at Tukche after they sifted to this new location. The waiter didn't show up sooner, it took about 20 minutes. One of my friends ordered veg-dendo set. They brought dendo without any side dishes (no veg - no dal) so I shared my dal (lentil) with him. Someone ordered... More

Success has gone to their head and therefore forgot people actually pay them and there is something called customer. Booked a table for lunch for 1 pm and no one knew about it. They gave a 'Why are you here looks. A decade back same attitude existed when they were in durbar marg and customer's like us dumped them till... More

We got the traditional Nepali plate and ate Nepali style (with our hands). They bring silverware also but we wanted to eat like the locals. The food was excellent. The restaurant was very clean. The service was very good. I bring a group of students to Nepal every year and we always eat here for our last meal before leaving... More

TUKCHE THAKALI ( e-mail : tukchekitchen97@gmail.com) is near the Narayanhiti Palace in central Kathmandu . Thakalis are Nepali styled versions of Indian Thalis but the flavors are quite different. Nepali yoghurt is made with Yak and Buffalo milk and it’s absolutely wonderful . The lassis (yoghurt smoothies) at Tukche Thakli were memorable. Miss Mahima ,whose mother owns this restaurant, was...

Better to sit outside the in garden or in the covered terrace area. Indoors is a little dreary. Food was very good. Not typical hacked up veggies and meats. Quite delicately spiced and presented. Interesting millet dishes can be had. Very good value - about Rs 395 ($3.50) for a full meal with either lamb or chicken and only ($2.50... More

This place has moved to gairidhara which is much more open area and spacious than the previous place. Food is good as always but the service in the new place is quite slow. So if you are super hungry then may be one should order in advance. Overall its nice to place to thakali food.
