The Thakali Bhancha (Kitchen) is the best place for daal bhat and for local atmosphere in Thamel, Kathmandu. It’s my regular default restaurant and I’m always greeted with friendly smiles by the staff. Very popular with locals, out of town Nepali visitors and foreign tourists...More

Our go-to daal bhat place when in Thamel. Always fast service and good food. Not really a place where you hang out all day, but for a quick and delicious lunch it is perfect.

The food was average and definitely not the best thakali in Nepal. The chicken and mutton were a bit too watery.

Did not leave Kathmandu without having Thakali under my belt. Enjoyed the food - it was tasty and spicy (but not too spicy). The place is not as clean as you'd expect, but the culinary merit out weigh the atmosphere.
