After several weeks of Nepali food, it was a welcome treat to enjoy some lovely pizza and pasta. The ambiance on the second floor with large windows overlooking Thamel was lovely and relaxing too.

After a few weeks in Nepal I was craving some European food and this venue did not disappoint. Climb the many levels to the roof and enjoy a cool breeze in the sunshine. Great food and friendly waiting staff who are happy to chat in English or Nepali even if your language skills are poor!

Actually almost Italian - and after a couple of weeks of rise and curries, a real good pizza is fantastic. Candle-lit tables and cold white wine - I almost go here at least once on my Kathmandu stays. The four star rating is in comparison to other pizzas though - in a, say, Napolitan rather then Nepali comparison, it would... More

It was a splendid experience. We were greeted with the warmest smiles. The food was great. I had the munchies for firewood pizza and the two pizzas me and my friend ordered didn't let us down. For the first time I got to taste a pizza base yummier than the toppings! Pork chops was scrumptious. Also, its amazing that they... More
