GREAT chillout music alongside a GREAT burger and GREAT service at an amazingly reasonable price... More

I had fajitas with flour tortilla. I recall wishing for one more tortilla but was still very satisified. My friend had the hamburger which came... More

Genuine eatery in Thamel where they serve good food with pleasant electro music. Don't miss Chicken cordan blue, nachos, Spaghetti and enchilada. Highly recommended
