I honestly can't say it was really bad. But it was all mediocre at best. Food is ok in general, although the union soup was terrible. Service mediocre, setting kind of ok. There are better places around

Both the Indian and Thai food was very good. Very friendly and attentive staff. Lovely garden, but there is also a very nice lounge and also a balcony overlooking the Lake side street. They were so kind as to make some food for our baby too. WiFi was poor though.

Fantastic Nepalese food, central rooftop location, staff welcoming and very friendly, relaxing atmosphere after Trekking for six days. Near to Lake and Bahrai Hotel. Would definitely recommend this restaurant over the others in the area as the quality of the food here was excellent.

Good place to eat in Pokhara lakeside. The kids liked the pizza, my wife and I enjoyed the Indian curries and naan bread, Everest beer was good and cold, service was friendly.

Pleasantly surprised at quality of food.....better than a "pub". Varied menu. Unfortunately, the in house music trio drowned out by louder music from across the road.

Service was great and the food was delicious and prompt. We had naan and butter paneer. Reasonably priced and a beautiful ambience at night. The live cover band were fantastic. The only let down was the lack of patrons! It was such a nice place for a candle lit dinner I was surprised how few people were there!!! Highly recommended.

Service was quick and staff were friendly.The atmosphere and the vibe of the restaurant was very nice and relaxing. Highly recommend breakfast at the terrace where you can enjoy the beautiful...

This is a great place to eat, it's cozy but has a good atmosphere and the staff were great. I had an excellent curry and their prices are good. I will definitely be returning to this establishment
