I had dinner at The Rice Bowl. It was early, so my friend and I were the only ones in the restaurant. In spite of being the only ones, the service was lacking. The food was good but average.

Their food is no good so is their service. Their interior is quite boring and too old as well. Only the thing that attracts customers inside their restaurant is their live music. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

i always visit this place whenever I'm in town, the balcony is the best place to be, from romantic dates, get together s or just to grab a quick solo meal.

Went there for my last dinner in Pokhara with friends and ordered for Gyakok (tibetan hotpot). The service was really slow and finally when the dinner arrived, it was terrible... a bitter disappointment!!

Ordered a few simple (read as quick to cook) dishes of food, waited an hour and didn't turn up, gave them another half hour still didn't turn up, walked out. The end! Staff were clueless manager even more so, toilet was particularly disgusting even for pokhara, if you want to eat don't go here.

My friend and I were walking by and heard a fantastic male voice singing with acoustic guitar and had to check it out. We had already had dinner so just had dessert- the apple crumble was nice and simple- hot and tasty. A good place to chill with some drinks and live music on outdoor patio.

Went in attracted by nice solo acoustic performance from the 1st floor. The interior is very basic and the service needs a bit of training. The Tibetan food was delicious but European menu is not recommended. Loved the live performance.
