A very nice place to hang out to have snacks. Coffee, shredded potato and burgers are a must try. This place provides you a great ambience with a very large menu to decide from.

I had best time talking and interacting with Dahi(brother in nepali). The chef cooked food with lot of love and the food was delicious. One must try lamb and trout at this place.
