Great place for Indian food. Good variety. Went for dinner and went next day again for breakfast. Very good service too. Slightly pricey.

We were at the hotel at 3.30 PM after finishing our hiking near Emerald bay... the buffet was over by 3 PM and the restaurant was full when we went... We were totally ignored and the order was taken after a long time... Adding to the delay they missed one of the order and made us wait for much longer...Food... More

This restaurant probably has the best Indian food in Lake Tahoe. The chaat is particularly good. We tried the lunch buffet (which had chaat too) and it was very good. Service is fast. Only problem is it can get "super busy" during popular holiday weekends. like wait times can get 30 or 45 min..Other times should be ok..

We've been back to Nikki's Chaat several times. They recently doubled in size - that tells you that they are doing something right. The owner and his wife are delightful and just their personal interactions make this a special place to eat. Because I have a vacation rental and because I recently rented to an Indian couple with their grown... More

Went to Nikki's Chaat cafe on a weekend to eat their weekend buffet. The place is very close to the Lake and just next to the CVS. There is plenty of parking available outside the restaurant. The moment you enter the place, it may look very dark and more like a meeting room. The food was good, but not great;... More

So we were on our annual ski trip to Tahoe. After 5 straight days of skiing we took Saturday off and after sleeping in my wife said, "Let's have Indian food for a late lunch." We knew there were some Indian restaurants in South Lake Tahoe, but which one to choose? In a resort area you never know, but then... More
