Dine In: Third Eye

Part of the joys in exploring Kathmandu is deciding where to eat, especially in the tourist center of Thamel. Alleyways are lined with restaurants serving cuisines from around the globe, not to mention Newari and Tibetan dishes. And, of course, there are branches of the local fast food chains.

On our first night, my sister and I try Third Eye, a recommended restaurant near our hotel. The restaurant is housed in a red elegant building with a charming courtyard for those who want to dine outdoors.

The staff are friendly and attentive, and service is prompt.

The menu is long, but the restaurant specializes in North Indian cuisines, such as tandoori. This being our first night, I go for the vegetarian Newari meal, essentially dal bhat, a popular meal in the Indian subcontinent, including Nepal. This comes with an appetizer, though, which I first thought to be the meal itself.

Complementary appetizer: grains, lentil, buckwheat wine, and lentil soup
Newari Meal (Vegetarian) [Rs. 950]

The meal itself is filling and offers a good introduction into the Nepali kitchen.

  1. Hi! Are tourists allowed to travel there in Nepal? I am from the Philippines, I planned to travel there last December 2020, but unfortunately the pandemic hit on a global scale. I would like to try my luck this December 2022.

    1. Yes, but check for additional requirements as it can change. When we traveled last month, we were only required to show a vaccine certificate and a negative result for an RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours before leaving the Philippines.
