Was so good the first time I went back twice more. Didn't disappoint! Great fresh momos and the chicken biryani was awesome. Friendly service topped off a great experience. Highly recommended.

Being Viennese by origin, I very much wondered about serving our famos Sachertorte or Gluehwein far away from home. This is the city's kind of appriciation to the Austrian government who helped to refurbish the GARDEN OF DREAMS wherein the cafe is located at. Even though it didn't exactly taste like home it was very delicious und nothing can't beat... More

The staff and management of Kaiser Cafe are absolutely top notch. We had planned a birthday party for a staff member at the Garden of Dreams, but were stopped at the entrance because we had a cake. The ticket taker was a real jerk. We had to leave, but went to the back door of Kaiser Cafe. They intervened (ticket... More

Just when you need to remember what its like to have a western style coffee or meal and can't afford a 5 star hotel, this is your best bet. Not cheap, but worth the experience

Overpriced and need to pay 200 rupees just to enter the door. The food was delicious but they had small serving sizes.

Kaiser Cafe is based in the Garden of Dreams, ab. 20mins drive from Dwarika's. We were there for a dinner, but it looks like a better lunch/ cafe option instead. First things first - the garden is charmingly lit at night, but it probably looks more impressive during the day. At evening time, it becomes the town's high class romantic... More

A great and most beautiful restaurant in Kathmandu city. Located inside the garden of dreams, which is a restored historical and old palace. The restaurant set up, lighting and decors are great. Provide superb food and range of drinks to choose from. However this is bit expensive than other many restaurants in city. Still a most recommended and peaceful place... More
