This restaurant is an oasis close to the Boudhanath Stupa. It is not easy to find but worth it. The garden setting is beautiful and it is tucked down a side street so it is very quiet. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The service is fast and friendly.

Very pleasant setting and really good food. Not easy to find, but once you do it is certainly worth it. So instead of restaurants facing Boudha stupa, pick this one. It has become our daily go to place.Don't forget to visit the upstairs part as well - nice and chilled atmosphere.

Above average food, fast service, friendly waiters, beautiful garden, good music. Love this place. So friendly- food is quite good, just lacks a bit of soul but is very clean and well priced. Excellent thuntuk! Was in Boudha for 3 months and ate there at least 4 times a week.

Garden Kitchen is conveniently located a few minutes walk away from Boudhanath Stupa and the garden setting is pleasant and peaceful. It attracts a mixed clientelle: day visitors to the area. people attending Buddhist and language courses, monks and their relatives as well as wealthier locals. this makes for a good atmosphere. The menu is quite extensive and reasonably priced... More

Delicious food in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The ingredients are fresh and there are many great Nepali dishes to choose from. The restaurant is in a quiet area of Kathmandu very near the Boudhanath Stupa. It has covered garden area seating as well as two indoor seating areas. There is also a little shopping area that specializes in local... More

There is so much happening all the time in Kathmandu that it feels your eyes and ears are in full action all the time. So having a fantastic day at the Bouddhanath temple finding this little pearl was a super good surprise. The food was good, the toilets clean and the athmosphere calm and meditative. We really liked the place.... More

We have eaten here several times, and have always been happy with both the food and the service. During the cold season, the upstairs seating area is the warmest part of the restaurant, and you can browse through their souvenir collection. The service is not always fast, as the restaurant can get crowded, but the food has always arrived. The... More
