Dear Suchihwa, Greetings from Hotel Shambala !!!! We are delighted to note that you had a splendid time by the roof top bar sipping our lavish mocktails presented by our experienced bartender Sudeep, who has some good in depth knowledge on the mixology and has some tricks down his sleeves for the fusion. We are more than happy to have your wonderful feedback on that occasion but in respect to the food choices we have specifically chosen to have limited food items to go with drinks as snacks or something to nibble with. But please be assured that we have an elaborate menu down stairs at our main outlet ERMA for more food choices to choose from. Once again we appreciate for your wonderful review and hope to welcome you again for more fusion enthused mocktails. With Regards, Bedant Rayamajhi | Front Office Manager

Wow! What an incredible staff. My entire group was very impressed. From check in at the desk to the roof top bar restaurant nothing but perfect service. I would never consider staying anywhere else. It is truly as good as it gets. I want to give a special thanks to the manager of the bar Garnesh and his staff Raju, Suman, Ararumi, Sudip,Jeni,Alon. They really made it home away from home. Thank you!!! Troy Sent from my iPhone

Dear Mr. Muralidharan, Greetings and Namaste for Hotel Shambala !!!!! We Shambala would like to thank you for your feedback on our overall services. As, we always strive to provide our guests with the best of the best but at times we do fall in the far corner but with these feedbacks we can always achieve what we can recover. We apologize for not availing the milk sachets as due to the current hold up on importing items from overseas by the government but we had the option of milk from the restaurant should you have requested for one. As for the layout of the room size it differs to the building structure and the view, but please be assured that the amenities are all the same with all the facilities marked at the best avail market price. But once again thank you for the generous review and when you do travel to Nepal and choose to stay with us, please book direct with us so that we will be more than happy to cater all the requests With Regards, Bedant Rayamajhi | Front Office Manager
