Such a welcome treat in the heart of Thamel. Twice we’ve been here now. The tempura is great as well as the special bento box. What a pleasant surprise.

My favourite dish here was the tofu. Feels authentic with the decorations and it’s very clean here. There are private rooms you can sit in with the Japanese doors. Decor is definitely the highlight for me. However I waited a while for my food but...More
