The menu selection is large and the food is tasty. Everything I ordered exceeded my expectations and the price is great. Not overpriced like some restaurants in Thamel. Definitely returned for a few nice cheap meals.

Came here for our evening meal and we were not disappointed. There was a good mix of locals and tourists in the restaurant. The dal-bhat was very good as was the other food. The staff were very friendly.

Authentic Sherpa/Tibetan cuisine that you have to search to find, but well worth the effort. Great food at a more than reasonable price. Try the Momo Soup, brilliant!
