Friends Restaurant

International in Kathmandu

Run by the same people as Or2k, but a less grungy, more grown-up option, Friends shows its Israeli roots through its hummus, shawarma and borek (filo pastry pies), but the menu also stretches to breakfasts, burgers, pizza and a particularly fine Thai beef salad. The decor is warm and relaxed, with exposed brick and farmhouse tables, and the service is normally good.

Rates include tax but not service.
