I was very impressed by the quality/taste of the food here. It was incredible. I was worried I would like anything because everything lacked meat but I got a fake meat patty with mushroom sauce and was in heaven! The vibe/atmosphere was the best I've seen in Nepal, in my own opinion.

The food here is very good, with many very good Middle Eastern choices. However if you don't find it comfortable to sit for long on floor cushions, this can be a problem. Unfortunately there don't seem to be any tables with chairs. However, the food more than compensates for the lack in comfort and the atmosphere here is fun. Service... More

The place is ok. It's pretend to be a cozy hippie place, but actually not so comfortable. You sit on the floor, but not much space for legs. Food in not fantastic. Especially if you tried good israeli food before. Average level of food quality. A service is so so. They bring food randomly. So if you come with friends,... More

Great atmosphere, fast service and great Israeli food! Although there wasn't enough bread with the pricey OR2K combo, we asked for more as still had loads of dips and they tried to charge us extra. Bit cheeky!

Beautiful fresh salads and fruit that is washed in water safe for foreigners. Cheap cocktails. Unique relaxing environment with middle-eastern style cushions on the floor for seating. This is a nice place to relax on your own, read a book and eat a meal.

Good food, relaxed setting and located in the middle of Thamel. I personally preferred the Pokhara branch but each to their own. Lots of backpackers here 24/7.

This is quite the scene for young hipsters. The whole place is lit with blacklight and everyone takes off their shoes on entering and must sit on pillows on the ground to eat. The food is a nice mixture of middle eastern and nepal food with lots of vegetarian options.
