A reasonable option in Bhaktapur where we struggled to find decent food at good value. Service is really quite slow, especially at the start of lunch and even when there aren't many customers which was a bit strange. Coffee is good. Western options are average and a little disappointing but the Thali is tasty and fresh.

Great little cafe, good views, relaxed staff. Just had a simple coffee and cheese toast but the welcome was friendly and a great break from touring the city.

I am getting a bit obsessed with clean toilets here in Kathmandu, however, after visiting one restaurant where the facilities were disgusting I have become a bit more hesitant before ordering. Here was immaculate. I only had a simple dish of a cheese sandwich and chips as I had been eating rich food for several days. It was very nice.... More

There are not too many options in bhaktapur in the evenings. This place was the right and best option for a late dinner Their vegetarian options are satisfactory I had a vegan burger & tea and absolutely liked them

The cafe offers a varied menu, very good coffee, and wine by the glass at reasonable prices. We had the chicken steak served on a very hot sizzling plate with chips and vegetables; Bhaktapur is known for its excellent vegetables. The meal was finished with another local specialty; curd with nuts. The view out to the palace square provides a... More

Great place for snacks and sandwiches but equally great for traditional evening meals. Only one complaint Very slow in cooking your food but when you're in Nepal, what's the hurry?

Great vegetable pakodas, good Nepalese dal, some Indian curries. The kids liked the french fries and cheese balls. Conveniently located right on the main temple square.

A centrally located restaurant in the heart of Bhaktapur. In fact the restaurant is part of the guesthouse Shiva. The service is very friendly and smooth. The restaurant itself is nice and pleasant. The menu is extensive and the food is very tasty. Prices are moderate. Excellent to have lunch or dinner. We went a few times to this restaurant.... More

The food is good. Dining amid a very cultural atmosphere of Nepal. Price is surprising reasonable if considering its authentic architecture and its location of being right in the centre of a world heritage site.
