“Lovely breakfast, beautiful view”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

I really enjoyed the simple breakfast served at the rooftop. It was cold, windy but good experience and nice place to hangout. Interesting indoor decor, and many floors (endless stairs). Nice staff too. Definitely will come back :)

“Ok”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

Helena's prides itself as the restaurant with the highest rooftop in Kathmandu, with views across Thamel stretching all the way to Swayambunath and providing a birds eye view at the daily lives of the locals. Breakfast is average, but it looks immensely popular with four levels of dining.

“Helanas breakfast!!!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 via mobile

Awesome views of Kathmandu and swayambhunath temple from the roof top and great value set breakfast for 180 rupees. Eggs, toast, potato hash, tomato, grilled banana and tea or coffee. The Nepali tea is delicious! Friendly staff and great workout with all those stairs haha! Definitely our favourite place for breakfast :)

“Nice rooftop terrace”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

This is a good place to come to sit, relax, and watch out over the streets of Thamel. The service is particularly quick, and the food isn't fantastic, but it is a pleasant place to be if you are not in a hurry.
