Newly opened by a Nepali / Vietnamese couple, this little place is really warm and welcoming and serves great food. Kathmandu has long needed a Vietnamese restaurant and here it is! The pho is great, and the barbequed pork ribs are fantastic. Start with the spring rolls - they are terrific. The Nepali food is also good - the set-menu... More
