The pleasant and quiet atmosphere makes up for a very limited menu. I do, however, recommend the besan pncake.

The food was delicious and inexpensive. It was set back off the street in a walled garden. Beautiful plants, a little pond, lots of birds singing...a nice, quiet retreat from noisy, dusty Kathmandu.

Ah....! la bonne soupe - comme au temps de ma grand-mere! I love their home-made soups, best by a mile in Kathmandu. If anyone finds a better tasting soup, I will buy them a meal with Champagine to boot!

An amazing quiet, peaceful garden paradise in the middle of Thamel. I stayed in 2 other hotels, then I luckily found this place. The owners are amazing, very sweet, helpful, accommodating. The food is delish and service is top notch.

The restaurant in the garden is a lovely spot, even on a cold night as you sit around a lovely warming fire. But the prices of the food and drink are very high and, unfortunately, I found the food itself not very interesting.
