Himalayan Restaurant
“A very pleasant new addition to Patan food scene. Yala restaurant is located just behind Yala Gallery, in a beautiful garden and Newari house. Food is tasty and well prepared, the open kitchen is spotless, the staff is caring... what else? It is without a doubt the place that has the best potential to become Cosy Nepal's favourite recommendation. Tehy serve throughout the day from breakfast (with fresh juice!) to dinner and host some nice events from time to time.”

“You definitely won't find this place in any guidebooks. Visible from our balcony, this is a good and relatively hygienic neighborhood "bhatti". It's unglamorous on the inside but climb the stairs for the relaxed rooftop balcony. There is good traditional Newar food and very good traditional alcoholic drinks of raksi and chyang. I highly recommend the chyang, they serve it the right way in brass cups. The price is very, very right.”

Café
“Owned and managed by the friendly Ruby, the place (a bit like a Berlins’ underground spot) is hidden in a tiny alley on the right hand side when going from Swotha Square to Durbar Square. Small black board menu only but everything Ruby serves is extra fresh and well prepared (always by him). Very cheap for the quality (between 150 npr and 300 npr). Good atmosphere, open kitchen, local clientele. ”
