Great after dinner place for drinks, sheesha and dancing! We had such a good night as did everyone! Located centrally in the Thamel area it's easy to find.

A nice place to spend the night with friends, beer and a pipe. Placed in the middle of Thamel it isn´t a har place to get to.

As I always prefer comfortable sitting where ever i go , Buddha bar has been a perfect place offering low height sitting with mattresses , just the way i prefer. The foods are tasty compared to other bars. Music is awesome and unique. So... More

Chilled but loud atmosphere in central Thamel, which makes it a perfect stop off on a pub crawl. Better tackled after a couple of beers under the belt already. As everywhere atmosphere is markedly more vibrant on friday nights.

I really liked this place. It is a fun hookah bar that plays good music and gets a great crowd. This is a good thing during a freezing nite in December! I came to sit and do some work and have a drink and food and saw the place turn into a fun nite spot afterward! The drinks were really... More

We had a large group and were located in Thamel so this became a good meeting place due to its location atmosphere and chill vibe. And the nachos were great. There was great atmosphere at night and our big group could... More
