We visited this restaurant twice during our stay; once for dinner and another time for lunch. The wifi signal was strong and they had nice music playing. Our meals were delicious. If you're into a restaurant that radiates cool vibes then come here.

I've had a variety of Asian dishes here. Prices are a little above average but all the food was very tasty. Has somewhat of a hip clubby vibe, with a live DJ most nights and electronic music playing. I am reading a lot of mixed reviews for this restaurant. However, when I was there, service and food were actually quite... More

After hearing good things about the Funky Buddha we decided to go for a meal there. The settings are lovely and the music is thumping- if not a bit out of place in a restaurant setting, better placed in a club. They were severely understaffed and we didn't get seen to for 20 minutes for food or drinks. The cocktails... More

Definately the best Momos in Katmandu. Also the DJ and the music there was great, perfect for evening chillout.

I have always have made sure I visit this place as many times as I can for my meals whenever I am in kathmandu. I like the people who run it and vibes around. In my last visit I also purchased a hotel staff T-shirt, which is cool and I always wanted. Thanks for the awesomeness guys, keep the energy... More

We ordered. They obviously forgot our order despite only three tables being occupied. After about an hour and a half of waiting we reminded them. No apology. Eventually food came out. Our nachos came out cold with some bits of rotten avocado in the quacamole. Our chicken schnitzel was supposed to come w hummus. No hummus to be seen.

I had brunch here this morning and sat in the courtyard. Despite there being only one other table of 2, it was difficult to get anyone's attention. I had the same problem again after I finished eating and wanted a coffee. It was exactly the same situation when I asked for the bill. The food was very good and I... More

Dropped in here after doing a great trekking trip (Manaslu Circuit). Nice atmosphere and a very chilled out place; the DJ was just starting up playing some relaxing sounds. We ordered the Local Platter to share which sounded good. 4 veg pakauda, some fried potatoes, some chicken and some beef/buffalo, and some slices of cucumber and carrot. The pakauda tasted... More
