The Monkey Temple restaurant overlooks the real Monkey Temple (the Swoyambhunath Monastery), and half of Kathmandu, from its property at Chakdol height, Swoyambhu, and the view is mesmerizing, especially in the evenings. Getting there can be a little tricky and we recommend using Google Maps to find the restaurant but when you do get there, the search will be worth it. Youngsters throng the cozy multi-cuisine restaurant on weekdays as well as weekends to enjoy the servings of moderately priced food and the great view that the restaurant offers. If you’re lucky, you’ll also have some good photos clicked by their in-house photographer for their social media pages.
PS: We know for sure that the Monkey Temple is a frequent hangout for one Nepali television actress. Who knows? You might just bump into her for a photo op.
