Lakeside, Pokhara, Nepal

Small vegetarian restaurant serving Nepali cuisine with a few international items, a selection of tea and beverages. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Try the simi nariwhal which is stir-fried green beans with toasted coconut over rice. Tara will modify dishes to suit your needs.

First Review by Kalediaries

OK but nothing special - Edit

We'd seen many good reviews but the place was mediocre. Fried green beans with coconut was pretty bland compared to the spiciness we were promised. Table cloths look like they've not been cleaned for months.

homey, peaceful and creative - Edit

Tara is familiar with veganism, and will point to the few dishes that are vegan (I'm not sure about the noodles).
Tasty food for not too high of a price, in a relaxing small place.

worth many visits to try all - Edit

Small restaurant up a side passage with a simple look with chairs inside and out. Outside is better for a breeze on a hot day. The menu is particularly interesting with nepalese dishes not seen elsewhere. The pad thai is distinctive from that served in Thai restaurants no been sprouts and more peanuts. But delicious nevertheless. The green beens and coconut is excellent too.

Pros: good fresh food excellent value

Cons: none

Wouldn't recommend the pad Thai - Edit

As someone who lives in Thailand I know what a pad Thai should be, and this wasn't it. They used wheat noodles instead of rice noodles, there was no bean sprouts, no tamarind sauce, the whole dish was way too salty and it was covered with an entire bag of raw peanuts. I couldn't finish it (and I always finish my food). Maybe other dishes were better, but I wasn't prepared to find out.

Cons: Pad Thai is not pad Thai.

let's be honest - Edit

I really don't understand why vegans give 5 stars to veg places only because they are veg places (actually not even vegan places). I read all the nice reviews and decided to try the chocolate momos. Well, they were NOT good, sorry. The dough was dry, and the filling nothing special. The place is NOT nice, and in Pokhara you can find many other amazing restaurants offering great vegan offers. Sorry, but let's be honest, this place is not worth a visit.

Amazing host, delicious vegan options. - Edit

Really good food, delicious vegan options and Tara is extremely accommodating. The prices are great too. The food may take a little time to come as she's cooking everything from scratch but it's totally worth the wait. Arrive early as there are only a few tables.

Pros: Lovely Host, Great Price, Unique food

Cons: Not many seats, No wifi

What a hidden gem! - Edit

Tara is a gorgeous host who runs her small eatery with compassion and pride. She has an amazingly tasty selection of vegan options and we have been back every day since we discovered it. You can taste the love in the food.
Everything is well seasoned, well spiced and is made fresh to order. Try the coconut green beans - it's like nothing I've had before and sooooo good! Cheap, fresh and unpretentious food served by a lovely host.
