Pros:
- Parking for 5-6 cars
- Nice atmosphere: located in a regular house, and the "house feeling" has been kept. E.g.: small library with books, board games that customers can play etc
- We were a large group (over 12), and were given one large table. As there were no other customers, it was nice to have the place to ourselves.
- Variety of food, mainly western-inspired (burgers, chicken, vegetarian). Beef and beefburgers seem to be their specialty, but when we visited they did not have any beef (issues with importation)
- Several vegetarian options

Cons:
- The food is ok, but nothing special. In many restaurants in Kathmandu, the food tastes similar - it is as if all the cooks went to the same school and use the same cook book. This one is no different. The appetizers seemed to be more tasty than the main dishes.
- No desserts available

Crispy chicken and cheese burger | Rs 225 (Add 10% SC ✔️, Add 13% VAT✔️) ®️ Rating: 3/5
The burger patty consists of crumb coated fried chicken breast with cheese. The burger is good but not as delicious as shredded chicken burger.

The Bentfork signature grilled chicken burger | Rs 225 (Add 10% SC ✔️, Add 13% VAT✔️) ®️ Rating: 3/5
This is really good. It has grilled chicken breast, organic greens, tomatoes, cheese, caramelized onion and egg. I love the taste of it. Bit dry and less spicy but overall it's delicious.

We came here for dinner with extended family. Definitely a hidden treasure. A homely and cosy interior with many board games and books. I was impressed with the menu options, particularly the healthy salads and vegetarian options. We opted for the signature burgers but all the food was well made and generous portions. We also enjoyed the cheesy bacon croquette starters.

This small restaurant set in an old Rana house has one of the best cuisine that I've eaten in all the years of going to Kathmandu it's well out of the tourist hub in a very quiet area not far from Bhatbatini it's a great place for a romantic evening or just with great friends.
