The atmosphere here is brilliant. We showed up around cocktail hour for a few happy hour drinks. The place was relatively empty and playing some good music. Within a drink or two the place was packed with young people chatting away, drinking beer, and tucking into some good food. I'd definitely recommend going here if you want a cold beer, good food, or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of Thamel. Great place.

Electric Pagoda quickly became our regular hangout in Kathmandu. Loved the outdoor setting, especially as night sets. Very relaxed seating where you can sit on your own to eat or mingle with other guests and play Jenga!

All the food we had was great and the menu varied as we alternated between sharing some spicy Nepali dishes and pigging out on fries and burgers. Happy hour was not to be missed and you simply must have a Yak Attack (or three) to get your evening going.

Laid back and good service. Enjoyed the garden and relaxed atmosphere. Nachos only thing we ate - tasted great after two weeks of dark bath.

Go for the vegetarian burrito - it's worth it!

Only small problem is they don't take card...not good if you've not budgeted properly and run out of cash at the end of your trip!

The Electric Pagoda has a very nice setting/atmosphere - garden like, set back from the street. The menu is varied to cater to a diverse tourist trade that is the trademark for the Thamel neighborhood. Unfortunately, the food is only average and the prices are a bit higher than similar restaurants in the area.
