You can’t go without sampling the Nepali delights at this atmospheric oasis in the centre of Tansen. In addition to a great Newari set thali with veg, chicken or mutton, they serve local dishes like choela (dried buffalo or duck meat with chilli and ginger), served with chiura (flattened rice) and spiced potatoes in curd. There's also an international menu.

Out front you'll find Nanglo West's bakery (open from 7am to 7pm) with delicious buttery biscuits, cream cakes and pastries. Freshly baked goods arrive on the shelves around 10am.
