We have been coming here for years since our children were babies, and they are now school aged kids. The people who run this place is so friendly and accommodating. Dishes here are very nicely spiced. The weekend brunch is small in selection but there is always plenty of freshly made food. For 10 bucks, you even get a glass... More

Being from india for me Indian food outside of india is 99% disappointing, it's overcooked, over spiced variant of an ordinary chefs take on what non-Indians would like. So I expected very little from this place. But what a pleasant surprise. Fresh ingredients simple flavors and a well lit high ceiling dining space. Really excellent nicely cooked indian food. Try...

Excellent meal! really impressed by the food and service was good. I liked the momo dumplings - I went with chicken but you can opt for yak if you are so inclined. Lamb curry and the chicken baked in lime and cilantro were good choices for the entree.

The food is OK, dumplings were quite disappointing, very bland, and service needs to be more attentive.

We visited Cafe Santorini for dinner while in Pasadena for a wedding. The food was excellent and very fairly priced. The service was even better than the food. Very friendly, welcoming staff and atmosphere here, charming surroundings and a delightful experience overall. There is not much of a wine list but that is fairly standard for this kind of restaurant.... More

We arrived in Pasadena late on a Friday, we left the hotel hoping to find something to eat. We walked for a while and were rejected in a couple of places with the classic "the kitchen is close". After 9 hours of flying we were getting in a bad mood until we got to Tibet Nepal House. We ordered the... More

This is a unique place. The food was great. The atmosphere was perfect. Me and my wife visited this place 2 days ago. The treatment was awesome. I highly recommend this place, you won't regret.

We had a group of 10 people on a budget the day we visited the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, CA. The Norton Simon has an awesome collection of Northern Asian Art and we wanted to continue the theme, so we drove about 3 minutes to have lunch at the Tibet Nepal House. We all decided to make the big... More

First time in Pasadena and so far the best restaurant in the area ! Traditional atmosphere with a charming Nepalese decoration and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. We received a warm welcome from the waiters and chose from a variety of traditional Nepalese food. We did not wait more than twenty minutes before the food arrived.... More

Even though it is technically a Tibetan restaurant, I consider this the best Indian cuisine in Pasadena. The Somosas are delicious, and every dish we've tried has been excellent. The decor is not fancy, but very relaxing…….the acoustics are old-school quiet, conducive to conversation.
