At the time when the longest standing
restaurant of its quality was created,
the path to The Chimney was just a series
of dirt lanes winding between stone houses
in the jewel of the medieval Kathmandu
Valley. In a fairytale land of not so
long ago, the infamous Boris Lissanevitch
established The Chimney. Boris' name alone
conjures up legends of his unheeded extravagance
and enigmatic adventures; famed Russian
ballet dancer, entrepreneur, and entertainer
of royalty, the tradition of the unprecedented
Boris and his Chimney Restaurant continues
to this day.
By night, the handcrafted, open, copper-shafted
fireplace blazes and the vaulted ceilings
of The Chimney are illuminated with the
shadows of myths as tall as Everest. Boris'
original recipes live on as his famous
Borstch is served as well as the Smoked
Bekti, Chicken a la Kiev, and the flaming
baked Alaska Sagarmatha.
Traditional favorites are honored while
an inspired international menu at The
Chimney achieves distinction of its own.
With a palette of fresh ingredients, is
refined with masterful innovation. Savor
Rack of Lamb with an Eggplant and Sesame
Ragout and relish the piquant Tartare
of Smoked Salmon with Wasabi, but be warned,

There is something about the dining room
centered around the warm glow, or the
history, or the savory food, a night in
The Chimney, whether an intimate dinner
for two or a festive gathering of friends
becomes a story to be told again and again.

MASSAGE AT CLUB NIRVANA
Shiatsu is a traditional hands-on Japanese
healing therapy. It can help in a wide
range of conditions - from specific injuries
to more general symptoms of poor health.
Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience
and regular Shiatsu sessions help to prevent
the build up of stress in our daily lives.
Common conditions helped by Shiatsu include
- back pain
- headaches, migraines
- whiplash injuries and neck stiffness
- joint pain and reduced mobility
- menstrual problems
- digestive problems
- asthmatic symptoms
- sports injuries
- Swedish Massage
- Swedish massage is a classic approach
to massage. The strokes are continuous
and fast at
- times. Pressure is moderate. Strokes
are elongated and also include kneading
and cupping motions.
When you climb on the table for a traditional
feel-good rubdown, the technique is most
likely to be Swedish massage. This is
the primary technique taught in massage
schools and is the most popular form of
bodywork practiced in the West. Swedish
massage employs soft strokes on the more
delicate and bony structures of the body,
such as the face, hands and feet, and
stronger strokes over thickly muscled
areas that retain stress, such as the
neck and shoulders. The careful attention
to the amount of pressure makes Swedish
massage great for relaxation.
Facial, manicure and pedicure
In addition to the exotic massages and
oil treatments, Club Nirvana also offers
