One of the most popular restaurants at Lake
Side, Monsoon is a fusion of a Bar, Fine Diner,
Pizzeria and Café. The central idea of Monsoon
is to combine quality and elegance with value.
The well decorated spacious dining area, extra
comfortable sitting, carved wood windows,
gourmet dishes and first rate service gives the
feeling of excellence, but the price is very
reasonable. The restaurant menu offers Steaks,
Fresh Fish dishes, Pastas, Thai food and Chinese
The ground floor bar is one of the best bars in
Pokhara serving wide ranges of exciting
cocktails such as Caipiroska, Mohito and Coco
Loco. The bar offers an impressive variety of
wines, including Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet
Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Riesling and
Chenin Blanc from Australia, US, South Africa
Monsoon has recently added the “Pizzeria” within
Pizzeria uses a customized oven that is designed
to bake pizzas. The oven is ceramic insulated
and wrapped with brick walls from the outside
for effective baking. The oven makes chewy
(crunchy pizzas are considered low quality) and
soft pizzas within an ideal time of 12 minutes.
The interior of the oven is designed in such a
way that the pizza bubbles while baking,
resulting in a well cooked pizza with air
bubbles trapped at the surface.
The pizza oven is turned on one hour prior to
the opening of the Pizzeria, and is turned off
only after the closing. The oven remains hot at
an constant heat of 500 degrees. Any pizza that
goes into this oven is bound to be of great
Almost all the pizzas you get in Pokhara uses
buff cheese, but not at the Pizzeria. Pizzeria
uses the pizza cheese – Mozarella as the main
ingredient in each pizza it offers. The soft &
easily melting nature of this cheese makes
Pizzeria’s pizzas extra soft to eat. For those
who prefer harder cheeses, we offer Parmesan,
Cheddar and Yak cheeses as extra choices.
The location of Monsoon is such that you get an
wide angle view of the Phewa lake and the
mountains behind it. The roof top coffee garden
is a great place to enjoy the open view. The
café offers freshly grounded and brewed
Espresso, Cappuccino, Café Latte, Columbian
Coffee, Strawberry ice and Chocolate Coolata.
