Ke Garne Cafe

Reviewed By Sherap_SherpaNepal - Kathmandu

On my way to Pokhara I prefer to stop by Bandipur and enjoy lunch at Ke Garne Cafe. Sit on the verandah and you have great views overlooking the part of Annapurna and Manaslu mountain range. What better than to have lunch at Ke Garne!

Samay Baji

Reviewed By Mochilero22 - Miami, Florida

To start off service was really quite poor. The gentleman who served us was rushed, Brusque and not at all attentive to diners. Food was not great, the meat I had was more fat than meat. Not sure how they can in good conscience serve meat of that quality. In our three months of South Asia travels which was marked by some truly amazing food & really stellar service, this was one of our poorer meals of the trip. A shame as service and food in Nepal is really good for the most part.

This place serves good pastries and cakes which are made from local and organic ingredients. The best 1 was the lemon tart must try it once. It has a nice and pleasant view from from the back balcony.

Namaste Cafe

Namaste Cafe is a new restaurant in the perfect place, over-looking the temple at the far end of Bandipur Bazarr. We serve quality, fresh Nepali food and a choice of Western and Indian cuisine. You will be most welcome, to enjoy the best food, have a drink and watch the village life.

Locally recommended this small, family run, restaurant is right at the far end of the Bazaar (away from the road) so easily missed, but what a find.
We had to wait for all dishes as freshly prepared, but then delicious.
Much cheaper than Old Inn next door - only drawback is Bandipur's rule that alcohol cannot be taken at the outside tables. Enforced by surly officials - but we'd finished by the time they came.

Kakshya Cafe

Reviewed By Sierra M

This café offers some of the best Nepali sets we've had, and definitely some of the best food in Bandipur. The service here is top notch, and it's a really great place to have a coffee, watch Bandipur life walk by, and the wifi is good too. They also have a small, homemade bakery service.
The patio gazebo out back is a great place to hang out and enjoy some peace and quiet.
They also offer clean, comfortable rooms at an affordable price. We greatly enjoyed our stay here!
