Things to do in Dhulikhel
The place doesn't look much but the food is good, and I found it safe to eat on two visits. The old man who runs it is charming, and it's interesting to flick through dozens of paintings for sale, even if you don't want to buy one (though they are cheap). The garlic buttered fries are a definite must.
There are not many folk in the world that can say âletâs have lunch in Dhulikhelâ and then get in the car and go to do just thatâ¦Yesterday was Sunday and a beautiful October day in Nepal to boot. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive Himalaya, my wife and I jumped in the car and drove out to Dhulikhel, about 35 km from our Kathmandu home. Our destination was the Dhulikhel Mountain Resort and its Sayapatri Restaurant.The road to Dhulikhel is not bad but is interesting in the way that many things in Nepal are interesting. We arrived at Dhulikhel Mountain Resort right at noon and found a place along the side of the road to park. Thereâs no parking lot so we just had to squeeze the car in somewhere. A friendly gentleman greeted us and watched as we locked the car. As we started towards the stairs that lead to the resort, the gentleman picked up a fist-sized rock and headed towards our car. My wife grimaced, expecting the next thing to be the sound of breaking glass. Instead, our new friend bent over and put the rock in front of the carâs rear tire, a helpful attempt to keep our ride from rolling down the hill during lunch.We headed up the stairs, past the open air front desk and onto the restaurantâs terrace where we were greeted by a white-jacketed waiter. After choosing a table near the edge of the terrace, the waiter moved an umbrella so we would have shade. We peered at the panorama that spread out before us and sawâ¦clouds! The view of the valley before us, though beautiful, lacked the majestic Himalaya that we knew were out there. But then, we noticed, poking above the clouds, the tips of jagged, snow-capped peaks. It was enough to know that on a clearer day, the view would be spectacular.Lunch was enjoyable and our impression of the Sayapatri Restaurant and the resort of which it is a part was all positive. The food was good, the resort clean and well-run, the service good and the surroundings delightful. Weâll certainly be back the next time the weather is clear and weâre in the mood for a good lunch and a Himalayan view.

"La Bella Nepali" Restaurant (Nepalplanet, Planet Bhaktapur Hotel) is located into The Planet Bhaktapur Hotel. Restaurant, Garden, Roof top. Good food and smiles.
When we came to the place it was all dark because of the powercuts. But we was met by the very friendly staff who fast lid the candlelight and made it very cosy. We both chose spaghetti and were very positively surprised. The pasta was very good and cooked al dente and with a delicious tomatosauce. In theese times in Nepal with powercuts, fuel and gas shortage and still rebuilding after the terrible earthquake you have to expect that not everything work completely. But this place really does the job! Plus we got a free ride home on a motorbike. Thank you so much.Thank you so much for coming to dinner at "NepalPlanet" La Bella Nepali Restaurant. Amrit, Anil and all the staff are happy to have you satisfied.I take this opportunity to recommend to all, in this difficult period in Nepal, to book in advance if possible. Food mainly Nepalese, Italian on request. Namaste!
