Patan Durbar Square has always been a hotspot for tourists and locals alike. But previously, eating out in the area was polarized. You either went to small local bhattis to get a taste of traditional Newa cuisine or opted for the more expensive, tourist-centered restaurants. There was no in-between.
The recently opened “Newa Ghasa” at Kuti Saugal, Patan (just two-minute walk from the Durbar Square) plans to change that. The moderately-priced restaurant specializes in authentic Newa cuisine and is a blend of modern and traditional.
With multiple seating possibilities that could accommodate almost 80-100 guests at the same time, Newa Ghasa also features live music in the weekends at its outdoor courtyard. The Newari restaurant has recently opened another branch at Sohrakhutte, Kathmandu.
