Great ambience, ok food

Had the rosemary tofu, with veg and roast potatoes. The potatoes were delicious however the veggies were over cooked and the tofu was rather flavourless. Would not order this dish again

Music and Munchies

I ate here after my 11 hour bumpy road ride from Tibet and it was like a little oasis. Comfortable cushy lounge seats, local musical artist playing some sick jams. Featuring a menu with a veg section. I ate the rosemary tofu with mashed potatoes. SO Delicious 🥇 My dad ordered the butter paneer, he said he liked it too. The menu is western oriented. The Staff let me know what options fit my diet. Really good energy!

Same same

So i read the reviews and went there and was hoping for a nice selection of food. Asked the waiter what was vegan and at first he didnt know and another waiter stepped in and told me it was the dal baht and some other dish. Felt like the same that every resturant in Nepal can offer. So we went on and found another place with more selections.

Pros: Still have a couple of dishes.

Cons: Same as every other resturant in thamel.

Cool place, food a hit or miss

Ate here with my omni BF. He wasn’t overly impressed by his burger and wings. I have hummus and pita for a started and it was good but just very basic. Could have made a better plate of food at home. I have the tofu faalasaki for my main and that was quite good. Bloody Mary’s were very good as well. Server wasn’t overly happy but he was there when we needed him
Atmosphere was cool. It’s located in a courtyard type area with lots of different spaces for seating and candles on the table giving it an intimate feel.

Pros: Good interesting vegan options , Good drinks

Cons: Some average dishes

Interesting Evening

Some vegan and vegetarian options available. We ordered the veggie burger and fries and it was tasty, although I suspect that there was a decent amount of msg in it which can be a problem for some. We waited over 45 minutes for our meals and when we queried this, we were told that they had run out of buns. The staff seemed to be rushed off their feet the night we dined and some of the mishaps and antics were quite entertaining.

Pros: Setting of restaurant, Good location, Prices reasonable

Cons: Long length of wait for meal

Best food in Kathmandu!

Went here on a recommendation of a friend and I'm so glad I did. Without a doubt the best veg food I tasted while I was in Nepal. Huge portions, lots of variety and something different to the usual momos and dal bhat. How they managed to get that smoky flavour and almost barbecued lamb chop taste in their tofu fassalakai I will never know, but I am still fantasizing about it. Jambalaya was also spot on. Highly recommend - would give 5 stars if I could.

Pros: Fantastic food, Huge portions

try Ratotouille

I added this restaurant to the list only because after one month in Nepal, most of it in the mountains with few food problems it was just simply nice to have Ratatouille and vegan burger and huge bowl of green salad and other continental food. So for those who had enough of Mo-mo-S and Dal Bats, no I don't underestimate local cousin, here is one more suggestion in Thamel. Good food but be very clear with waiters, if you want salad without cheese make sure to articulate it.
