Built over nearly 150 year ago for a Newar family with skilled craftsman's work which can be seen in the peacock window "mayur jhya" of the building. Inside, the restaurant's tasteful decor blends with the warm atmosphere of the house.
The ceilings have been finished with local wooden panel. Such preservation of the old ways of living, lends to a uniquely special dining experience. The Kathmandu Valley's buildings and carving skills were very fine, allowing an atmosphere of tranquility and beauty for the Thamel House Restaurant.
