One can also try the Nepali Noodle Soup (Thupka) for NPR 125 (vegetable option). Chinese rice / noodles cost upwards of NPR 125. Veg and non-veg Indian curries cost between NPR 100 and 250. Chinese and Western main course dishes cost between NPR 200 and 300. For dessert, try a Dry Fruit Custard for NPR 100 only. From the bar menu, a 500ml can of beer costs NPR 250 and 650ml bottled beers cost upwards of NPR 300. Local and Indian spirits cost NPR 140 upwards for 60ml.
The restaurant can get a little hot at times. I wish it had air-conditioning. Still, ceiling fans do their job and no doubt, Maitri is a winner in terms of the quality of food. Hotel Ananda Inn is also recommended.
