The tourist area of Thamel is chock a block with restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines. But to find a restaurant in Thamel offering cheapest bill of fare is not easy due to high rental cost.
But then there are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity of Thamel that are willing to charge cheaper rates. But paying cheap would often mean compromising on quality of food and environment. Street food is also gaining coin in many tourist areas such as Thamel, Kathmandu Durbar Square and Pokhara but the food served are less hygienic.
Ethnic restaurants such as those run by ethnic communities (Thakali, Sherpa, Newar, Tamang) can also be a good choice for cheap filling. Another option would be stick to bakery items like Sandwich, Doughnuts, and Croissants etc. Over the years the number of bakery outlets in tourist areas have increased making it easier for tourists to get quick and cheap food.
