Food and service is ok. Improvement in smile service would make the eating even more fun. But good to be eating and look out to open space.

We took a half-hour break from our tour and told our guide that we'd meet him at the center of the square. Then we went to the Palace Restaurant as it was the closest to the spot, with great views of the entire square. It was empty when we entered around 11:30 a.m. and we chose a central table for...

This restaurant on the 1st floor of the palace complex overlooks the Golden Gate at Bhaktapur Square. Cramped for space, the restaurant looks a little weird with 10 tables along its window-lined length only, with the restaurant's width being just around 3 metres & a length in excess of 25 metres !! Though we went at lunch time and the... More

The location is nice. The service very very slow and the food is not worth mentioning: pretty average, but the view is nice. You can see the square since all the tables are next to the windows. The light is pretty dim and I guess it is a good thing, since the person I was with went to the bathroom... More

We stopped here after 3 hour walking tour with a local guide Raj ( he was great 981-817-3533) to try some local specialties. If you like very salty soup and long wait, this is your place! But if all you need is a beer and local people watching, you can not going wrong !

Londoner: Too much on offer with not much by way of interesting or appetising. The menu was a confusion of Chinese, Indian, Italian and French with French fries and burgers thrown into the mix! The table cloths were dirty with the remains of the previous dinners curry stains. Floor dusty and dirty and I found myself thinking just how clean... More

A nice place to chill out when walking around this historic town. The beers are not cheap at 450 and then they add a 10% service charge so watch out. It's more expensive than some places in London - but worthwhile!
