Our tour went here for our last night dinner. It is an old traditional building, a 200 yr old Rana palace, so the decor was wonderful. The food was great and the service excellent. There was a singing and dance show too which finished with a wonderful peacock (who collected tips).... no-one could resist! highly recommended!

We went to Nepali Chulo on our last night in Nepal with various other groups on tours with the same travel agent (Earthbound Expeditions). The food was fairly good although not the best local cuisine I had in Nepal. The momos were however, the best momos I had there. The shows were interesting but a bit weird. There was a... More

I only marked this down because culturally I am accustomed to service staff being attentive but not visible. In this restaurant I was overlooked by up to 4 service staff and never felt entirely comfortable. The quality of the food was better than most places I have been too. The decor is great too. The service staff were very attentive... More

You don't really come here for food. There's absolutely nothing special about that. You come for the nice architecture and the dancing ostrich. I'm calling it fine dining, but it's really not.

We went there with a group of colleagues for a traditional dinner. Meal was huge and it consisted of 6 courses... but delicious! A show put up for us which was fun! We get to learn a bit Nepali dances. I would recommend taking a jacket with you, after a 2-3 hours sitting on the floor it gets chilly. Overall... More

When you go to Nepali Chulo, be sure to go hungry! You are going to be served some of the tastiest food you will find in Kathmandu, and the food comes and comes! Pace yourself though... as you enjoy the top notch cultural program, you will be served no less than 11 or 12 dishes. The music and dance performance... More
