I'm pleased to be at the Nepali Chulo along with my Thai friend, Ekhsam Chairson and team for a complete Nepali meals with cultural program. I highly recommend to visit this place in Lazimpat, Kathmandu. Best location best atmosphere. Either for locally or along with foreigner friends who may want real Nepali test.

We booked the 3-hour dinner and cultural show at this restaurant and were pleased to have the place almost all to ourselves. The food was delicious and quite filling, so much so that we had a bit of a hard time finishing the whole four courses. The dancers were charming and the music was surprisingly to my liking.

If your friend from abroad is visiting Nepal only for 2 days, then this place is great to give him/her a quick dose of Newa food and Nepali culture. The place is pricey, the ambience is touristy/ex-patty and the food is above average but the price is not justifiable.

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!
