When visiting Nepal, we envisioned momos and thukpa and other delicacies but the variety of cuisine at TAMAS was really nice and the staff were very helpful.

It is famous for its live sufi music by well known artist Pritam. The ambience is good. Sitting in open terrace is enjoyable. Food quality was good initially but now a days it's is only average.

The burgers are really, really nice and the Lobster Termidor is to die for if you are craving seafood in Kathmandu (I also did not find about 900 rps too expensive for half a lobster).
