Known for its extraordinarily reasonable prices and beautiful ambience, the Utpala Café at Boudha is a sanctuary amid Kathmandu’s chaos.
The multi-cuisine vegetarian restaurant, initially a canteen for the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery (Seto Gumba), was changed in the “hope of serving at least one vegetarian meal a day at reasonable price.”
With outdoor seating in a traditionally inspired ambience, Utpala is most famous for its vegetarian buffet that consists of 12+ dishes with main course, bakery, fruits, soup, salad and more at the most reasonable price of Rs 350 a person. Utpala is also vegan-certified where most of the food from the menu can be customized into vegan offerings as per request.
