Lonely Planet review
It may not be quite as good as it thinks it is (the eponymous founding chef left Nepal years ago), but this place is still a definite cut above the average Thamel restaurant. The menu ranges from Balti chicken (Rs 430) to Irish stew (Rs 605), via such interesting hybrids as seafood thukpa with lemongrass (Rs 480). The desserts are worth leaving space for, especially the bread-and-butter pudding, or try the dessert platter for a taste of all five. You can sit in the cosy interior, or outside in the spacious shady garden, complete with waterfall.
