Briefly closed following the 2015 earthquake, but now open for business, this restaurant in the Baber Mahal Revisited complex has a dramatic and regal, almost Victorian, setting, with crystal and threadbare linens. The menu features ‘Rana cuisine’, a courtly cuisine created by Nepali Brahmin chefs and heavily influenced by north Indian Mughal cuisine.

A baithak is a royal suite or state room, and diners are attended by waiters dressed in royal costume and watched over by looming portraits of various disapproving Ranas. The setting is probably the most memorable part of the restaurant. The attached K2 Bar has a delightful terrace for a pre-dinner drink.
