Hidden down an alley from busy Thamel, you can find this amazing oasis of greenery and relaxed atmosphere. Great place to hang out with your friend and/or family, friendly service and good food!

Had a lovely and peaceful breakfast here. Very good pancakes and a really nice environment tucked down an alley in a beautiful garden.

I have eaten here many times and always enjoy it. Their food is good, prices are low and the quite garden is a nice oasis in a very noisy and chaotic city. It's a little hard to find but worth the effort.

First of all, for fellow tourists here during the fuel crisis there is no 150 rupee set breakfast any longer. I had the pancakes with yogurt, fruit and coffee. The coffee is terrible as other reviewers have said, and the pancakes are just ok. Fruit mixed with yogurt was good. The garden setting was nice although the TV in the... More

My partner and I first ate dinner at Delima and there was a live band. Wonderful atmosphere as we ate some of the best food in Kathmandu! We tried many dishes including sedeck and pakoda. We made sure to visit again on our final day in KTM. The service was great and meals were affordably priced too.

Walk down a very narrow, long, high-walled walkway --- always you know that by this you will find treasure and pleasure at the end --- and you are immediately transported into a lush garden restaurant where all the lively hustle and bustle of central Thamel is literally shut out. It is an amazing find in this intense city life. I... More

We had our first nepali masala tea here. Then a couple nights later we spent the evening listening to a fantastic east-west fusion live music with flute, guitar, drums and vocals. The tomato mozzarella pakorhas were great!

The restaurant is a little bit hidden that's why so peaceful and calm. It is located on the main street in Thamel, easy to find it. We had an amazing breakfast (Fixed breakfast for 150 rupees) and I ate here one the best nepali plate. The waiters are really friendly and talkative :) Soul feeding place with nice surrondings.
