Excellent spot for good value local Nepalese and Tibetan dishes - where you can see the chefs cooking up a storm. The meals were very reasonably priced and the ambience was great.

I went here with my husband. We had a good time together here. We ate fried rice. It was good and the quantity was also good.

Their food was fresh and tasty and certainly did not break the budget. Try their variety of Thali's all well worth tasting.

The restaurant is owner managed, serves great Tibetan food at a very reasonable price. Its a good place to go for a quick lunch if you are shopping in Thamel. However the ambience is poor and the cleanliness is suspect.

Maybe I came at the wrong time, noon on Sunday/election day by the staff was very intently cleaning complete with loud music and strong cleaner smells. Except for the one hacking up a lung in the back. Took forever but the food made it all worthwhile, Tibetan set was very tasty and fortunately not to spicy because I never saw... More

Utse restaurant is a highly renowned Tibetan restaurant in Thamel, Kathmandu. The food is delicious, the owners are lovely, a nice Tibetan atmosphere. I have eaten here many times over my eight trips to Nepal. I have never fallen ill once. The prices are cheap, the food is hot and nourishing. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed... More

Massive portions. Really satisfying after a long day out in Kathmandu! It's a bit shabby but that just adds to the charm. It was packed too so that shows how good the food is.

Utse restaurant is situated within Utse hotel, conveniently located within Thamel. We had the Tibetan hotpot for 2. It came a 2 steam buns, a plate of potatoes, fried rice, a plate of momo and a pot of chrysanthemums tea. All these for 1200rps before tax. It's not the cheapest meal you can find but it's definitely good value for... More
