This place was right around the corner from us, so it was easy to get to and we decided to try what is the #1 place in Kathmandu.After having eaten here, we would drive across Kathmandu if necessary to have it again. The Chicken Shawarma was excellent. Accompanied by a bowl of pickled chili peppers and carrots, our taste buds were tantalized, satisfied and a few hours later, anxious to try the falafel or hummus plate next. As most have mentioned, we found the owner and his family charming, modest and talented in the art of delicious food preparation. We sat at the table closest to the street which was great for soaking up the atmosphere of Thamel. #1 for a reason!!!
