What clients are saying ?

I really like the ambience of this place and the service as well. The staffs are friendly, the food is good. They serve vegetarians dishes and also buffet on some days of the week at a great price. It's also a good spot for gathering and just chill. I recommend you try it atleast once!

Beautiful place with outdoor seating, friendly service and excellent choices of vegetarian food. I tried chilly momos, the spinach paneer and a green lemonade. The momos were rich and tasty, not too spicy, the paneer was creamy and complimented the spicy dish very well. The lemonade was refreshing and delicious. Absolutely a place I'll visit again!

The food here is very tasty and varied, so you can actually eat here all the time. The surroundings are tasteful, with terraces, and you can also sit in the garden under the trees. And the service is very nice. The toilets are also very clean, they are constantly cleaned.

Very nice vegan restaurant in the city. I would say it is 5 star rated restaurant I have ever been into in Nepal. Their menu are awesome and service staffs are friendly with good customs. Best outdoor sitting arrangement for family as well. Newly established guest house is also located next to the restaurant which is good and convenient for bag packers and visitors.

Found this place on instagram as they host a farmers market on Saturday in Boudha. I was pleasantly surprised when I visited the place. The restaurant is huge. With both indoor and outdoor seating available and in case of outdoor noth shaded and garden seating. The staff were very friendly and warm. For food we just got some bakery items and coffee which was all very good and excellently priced. Since it was Saturday morning the place did get crowded around 9.30- 10 because of the farmers market in the gardens there. They also have a breakfast buffet for 350 per person which was a decent sized spread. What was really good was that this place has parking which in Boudha is so hard to find. The place is also vegetarian only. Have to go back and try more of the food.

This cafe is near Buddh Nath Stupa. Came to this place to attend the food banquet of vegetarian food. We got to taste the locally produced food. We got very enlightening information from the program. You can dine here in a natural environment. The food was good and reasonably priced. I liked the ambience and service of this place too. The staff are friendly. Vegetarian dishes are also available here. I love this place. I suggest you to visit Yash Place at least once!

The food was good and reasonably priced. Service was quick despite the place being almost full. Only thing that felt a bit off was bugs flying around, i'm sure which wouldn't have happened if we had taken a table farther from the trees. Overall a good experience. Vegetarian options: Good place for vegetarian and vegan food

Good ambiance. The prices are also quite good. The food was decent. The falafel sandwich was a surprise and the bruschetta was good. However, the cheesy fries weren't what I expected. And i could tell were microwaved. But, a great place indeed. Will visit again.
