Great food, service and value in Thamel
Posted on 08 / 04 / 2012
It's worth putting in some effort to get to Shree Lal! Though the restaurant is in the basement of a building on Thamel Marg(look out for the yellow sign above the doorway), the food and service easily make up for the not-so-nice location. We ordered the big and mini meal deals, and both were excellent, with a variety of traditional Nepalese/Indian dishes in addition to rice and fresh chapati. It was also nice to see the signs assuring patrons that the vegetables are washed with iodine - certainly not something to take for granted in Kathmandu, and big relief for tourists worried about getting sick. Our server was so nice, spoke great English and understood and accommodated our request for vegan food. On top of everything, the generous, healthy and filling meal with two liters of water only ended up being a few hundred rupees (less than 10 dollars). A great find in Kathmandu!
