I usually go there for lunch and a lovely ginger honey hot drink. The garden is nice, restaurant clean and the staff kind. Defenitly a good chill out time place.

Our guest house hosts suggested this restaurant and we were more than pleased. We were sick of Bhutan and Nepali food after ten days of having it and needed some good old American food. Their spaghetti really hit the spot. It was reasonably priced and offered a wide number of ethnic food choices. We were practically licking our bowls, it... More

This place is nice for lunch and dinner. But not really special. It's one of the places that have other tourists visit in the evening because it's a guest house as well.

Went there for a simple breakfast and spent 390 NRs -- just two pieces of toast, two fried eggs and one just-so-so small coffee. They charge you 10% service fee and 13% more VAT...

Me and my two friends went here on our last night in Bhaktapur for dinner. It's in a nice location overlooking the square. However the food was flavourless, the vibe wasn't great and it was the most expensive restaurant we ate in while in Bhaktapur.

Description
The culinary delights here range from Newari and Nepali Dal Bhat to Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Indian and Continental delicacies. And when comes the question of the quality of our culinary offerings.

We never forget Hygiene is our top priority. Adding to the mesmerizing ambience, we also have min-garden from which you can savor the splendor of nature's graciousness all around on the south, the bliss you feel at Shiva's cafe corner is something different.

We do have Himalayan organice beans, instant, and filter coffee and also available italian LAVAZZA coffee. With additional different flavours of organice herbal tea.
