New Orleans cafe is in a fabulous location in a lovely garden setting and is Nepalese styled. Their menu is quite extensive and they offer many varieties of wines and beers. We ordered tapas and wine and were impressed. They have life music on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The staff is lovely and efficient. Hope to come back here one day!

I had a terrible experience. Staff were super rude. My husband is an American (Caucasian) and I'm originally from Nepal. They treated me like a dirt and him like a diamond till they figured that I'm his wife. My family felt the same way. NEVER GOING BACK!

I stumbled across New Orleans on my first night in Kathmandu.....I was exhausted after 16hrs of travelling and craved a good meal. Not knowing anything about Nepalese food as yet, I played it safe and I had the steak which was beautifully cooked and cheap too!! The place had a real nice relaxed atmosphere and I was very comfortable here.... More

Great atmosphere, the music on Wednesday evenings are the best, traditional accoustic Nepali musicians! So sweet and magical. Excellent veggie momo's Service is a little slow and forgetful, but it is a great place in Thamel, Nepal.

This is such a cute little place tucked away in Thamel. It almost makes you forget that you are in Kathmandu. The food is excellent. It's is reasonably priced and we were served very quickly.

Had lunch at this restaurant and threw up four hours later. Four of us took a table in the New Orleans' attractive courtyard that lies near the centre of madhouse Thamel. One had a soup that was "disappointing". Another had marinated Tofu which she said was tasteless. She asked for more dressing. The waiter brought a little pot of gloop... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I found this place tucked away. Breakfast doesn't seem that easy to find early in the morning in Kathmandu but this was a great find. The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. Coffee was good also. Would eat here again. Even had a beautiful boxer (well looked after) come for a pleasant visit. Great... More

I ate twice at this restaurant while in Kathmandu. We had excellent Indian and Thai food, friendly service and enjoyed live traditional music during our meal. We were seated in a quiet comfortable courtyard well off of the busy streets in Thamel. We also saw huge burgers and other continental food that people seem to enjoy immensely. I highly recommend...
