In the middle of Thamel, full of touristic restaurants, Himali Kitchen is nicely hidden next to mandala Street. Service is good, stuff is super nice. Dal Bhat is a great option: fast and tasty at a good price. Different other meal available in the menu. Enjoy!

Open till 10 pm this restaurant serves tasty Nepali and Tibetan food which is very reasonably priced. So it's a great place for all those on a tight budget. I would recommend their dal bhat, thenduks (Tibetan soup) and momos. Chilled beer is also available.

We found this restaurant, Himali Kitchen by accident behind the main street of Thamel. We ordered beriani, chow mein, thenduk and momo. All are delicious. Even the locals eat here as well. The Masala tea is nice too. Worth a try!
