Had sausages, shyafale and fries. This place is one of the best place for French fries. Other stuff are on the average. Service n ambience was average.

Bk's Place is the best place in Kathmandu if you are looking for having some good fries. Along side samosa are also served hot in a reasonable price.

All the food on the menu is all fried and that is what they are known for. The best chips in K-Town. Cheap and tasty fried food..

Its a beautiful restaurant. The French fries are so mouth watering. You can eat a lot of finger fries. Samosa is also good. Staff is really very nice and helpful. This is near by hotel Vaishali Thamel Kathmandu.

I think they have some magic oil. The French fries are so yummy. You can eat the fries the whole day. Samosa is also good. Staff is really very nice and attentive. Worth a visit. Good luck!
