We ate at this lovely restaurant several times while in Kathmandu, as the garden is delightful, and the food is too. The restaurant is found down a long stone-paved alley, which opens into a courtyard containing the garden. There are standard tables in the courtyard...More

Good steaks for the location. It's not Melbourne so don't expect a juicy ribeye but it is good. Just make sure you tell them medium as it comes on a sizzling platter. Well done will be over cooked. Good place great atmosphere and friendly staff...More
