I was introduced to this place by some locals one day, and I ended up going back about 5 or 6 times! I've only had one thing here which is the veg dal Bhat because it is sooo good. It comes with the usual stuff, but what puts it above the rest is the yogurt that comes with it. The... More

We found this restaurant, Himali Kitchen by accident behind the main street of Thamel. We ordered beriani, chow mein, thenduk and momo. All are delicious. Even the locals eat here as well. The Masala tea is nice too. Worth a try!

I wish I could write about the food in this establishment - but for once was so fed up with the poor, extremely slow service, that we left before we got our order to our table. We were attracted here by its nice ambience - a nice open setting, quite popular, tucked behind the throbbing Thamel streetlight. We ordered, and... More

ate here on my first night in KTM,, suggested by a local nepali friend. Apart from the fact that the dinig area was dirty, and dark, the dhal bhat that was ordered was not to my taste.
