I've been a very frequent customer. It was one of my favorite cafes in Kathmandu. But on NOV8, the Tom Yam Kung soup was mixed with a hair. My Neapalese friend and I were each reclined back on the chair, and the cup of soup...More

This place is great for lunch and a cold beer after a morning of hiking around Thamel. It’s slightly hidden off the main streets, so it’s more private and quieter than most places, a welcome respite from the hoards of tourists nearby. Whilst the range...More

It is a nice place to hang out and relax, it has nice ambiance with good music. The food is also good. Would recommend for a visit once in a while.

Live music and friendly staff make a good frame for this nice bar. Got a lot of space, good tea, and there is no problem to talk to each other through the music.

In the heart of Thamel is a little oasis with outside and inside sitting, lots of cushions, good choice of the usual beer, selection of wines and a good menu for either a quick bite or something more substantial. Well worth nipping in during the...More

If you don't want to experience excellent Nepali cuisine, go to New Orleans Cafe. It's quite centrally located in the Thamel shopping area, and frequented by almost exclusive European customers who would rather order spaghetti rather than the local Dal Bhat. The prices are reasonable...More
