Found this place to be quite average although it looked good from outside but in a good location though.

So we came here as I frequented this place a lot last year and it seems to have gone down hill. They have had a change of ownership. We ordered chicken burgers as thy did not have hamburgers but we think that we got veg burgers. The place is not very clean and though the staff and friendly they are... More

I'm sat in the cozy cafe, just had an appalling, lack lustre breakfast. I've been on the road in Asia for 11 months and while I have certainly experienced worse this was a very disappointing dining experience. The only thing in the cafes favour is a healthy WiFi signal allowing me to post a review. My principle complain would be... More

There's a large variety of ethnic restaurants in Katmandu but an apparent dearth of Nepali food. In Tripadvisor I came across one possibility: Cozy Cafe and Restaurant. It wasn't easy to find the street it's on but its sign stood out. I had dinner on the rooftop, with a threat of rain. They don't have a wide selection of Nepali... More

We really enjoyed a simple lunch of thali and momos. The food was tasty and very reasonably priced. Service was friendly. Would recommend for some cheap, delicious Nepali food.

We visited the cozy cafe based on great trip advisor reviews...very mixed feelings at the end of our meal. Good news first--great veggie momo (only 70 rupee) and very tasty Nepali veg set! Bad news--terrrrrible mushroom soup and pasta carbonara and overall service. We only ordered the continental items since they told us it was the only option aside from... More

Lovely little cafe set up some stairs overlooking busy Thamel. The owner is lovely and the food is superb. Try the banana choc pancakes, mushroom fries and the momos.

This truly is a great place to eat. The food is amazing, the prices are fine, and the personnel is friendly. The head chef has a great deal of experience. The buffalo steak and the pasta are my favorites. Would definitely recommend this place if you need a place to eat in Thamel.

Good, cheap (if you consider Thamel-prices) food and a very nice chef! We especially enjoyed the western food, better indian can be eaten elsewhere. Recommended dishes: Mushroom fries - chefs own invetion. Chicken sandwich - good value meal. Tendeloin buffalo steak - simply great steak! Hard to find but definatly a place to come back to!

I had the Pasta Arabita (green chilli & tomato) and it was fantastic. It's hard to find a place that makes its own fresh pasta in Nepal - and this restaurant does. Also I had a lemon, cucumber and carrot juice which was very refreshing on a hot day.
