Tucked away in the narrow streets of Lazimpat, Salon de Kathmandu is a perfect place to relax and rest whether it is with a company or alone. With spacious outdoors yet with an intimate sense of camaraderie, Salon de Kathmandu feels like an oasis from the busy streets of Kathmandu valley.

Just taking in the ambience and stillness of the environment is a breath of fresh air. The perfect combination of heartwarming reception and hospitality, Salon de Kathmandu is one of the few places to give customers the best of both worlds.

“Salon actually means ‘rest’ in French as salons were meant to be places to relax in classical France," says Karan Khadka, the Manager of the restaurant. "It is actually funny and I am grateful that you did your research as many people and even interviewers who have contacted us have asked where the barbershop is.”

As I was going through the menu, their ‘Winter Special’s Ultimate Chocolate’ caught my eye. A balance of dark chocolate and sugary sweetness of the marshmallow is a perfect mix of bitter and sweet to mellow your taste buds.

Right when I was about to finish the warm drink, their fourth Anniversary Special, the Fried Snack Platter, also the Bistro’s signature appetiser was served. This starter packs a punch in both the quality and quantity department. The Chicken Teriyaki, Sausage Cheese Roll and Chicken Cheese Roll all come together into a harmonious combination, no wonder it is one of their best sellers.

Another one of their fourth Anniversary Special dishes, the Spicy Chicken Bowl; a serving of Jasmine Rice, Fried Chicken and Fried Egg along with a mix of salad of various lentils. The Spicy Chicken complimented their sticky rice and the fried egg added flavor to it. The salad with oriental dressing provides the perfect respite from the hot and spicy chicken, making it a favorite for this cold season or any season, actually.

The season calls for Homemade Churros: a cylindrical dessert with the goodness of cinnamon and powdered sugar on the outside to tickle your tastebuds. In addition, the crunchy and the chocolate dip is a match in heaven. As the chocolate dip just seeps into the Churros and makes it even more delicious, a perfect dessert to wrap up your experience here.

"In my personal opinion, the feeling we strive for every customer at Salon de Kathmandu is one for longing. For one to come back and back for the 'Salon de Kathmandu' experience." says Khadka. It is the perfect place for people to come and have their own comfort zone, alone or in company. In the end, the banner on the restaurant’s website sums it up the best. It is “An Oasis in the Busy City”.
