The food is really good and staff is very friendly. I especially like their steak which are tender and well cooked. I can highly recommend this place.

Excellent outdoor terrace, excellent service and, above all, magnificent food. I came here as recommended by the Lonely Planet and it did not disappoint. Went for the authentically spicy (and it was certainly that) Thai green curry with prawns. It’s was overwhelmingly good, and I...More

The best flavor we found in Kathmandu, but in one of our visits we waited 30 minutes for soup and then another 30 minutes for the waiter to tell us they had ran out of spring rolls, so we had to order something else.

How lovely to find a restaurant in Kathmandu still going after 40 years! Lovely authentic Thai cuisine, either in the courtyard or the old restaurant upstairs, fast and friendly.

Authentic Thai food by a Thai chef. We ate here every day while in Kathmundu. Good service. English speaking staff.

Delicious salad and Thai food. I mostly enjoyed sitting out on the quiet patio, away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel. Their food is reasonably priced as are most restaurants in Nepal. EAT HERE.

Good quality Thai food which can be made less/extra spicy on request. In a good area for bars and nightlife in Kathmandu
