Yes! And you must try it. Authentic and made from scratch. Rich spicy sauces, fresh ingredients and one of a kind patio dining. I don't give five stars lightly!

I was part of a large party (12), and restaurant was busy. Don't sit inside (stuffy), but outside patio in 70-degree weather was pleasant if you don't mind wrought iron patio furniture. Food was great for the most part. Dinner took over 2.5 hours due to very slow service. If we go again, it will only be for lunch if... More

We had never eaten "Himalayan cuisine", but we're big fans of Indian food and recognized many of the menu items so decided to give this place a try. Luckily for us, there was a lunch buffet that offered a wide variety of dishes from a spicy lamb stew and Tandoori chicken to Chicken Tikka Masala and Saag Paneer. I think... More

I'm a vegetarian, so I can't tell you what the meat dishes taste like, but I can vouch for the quality of the vegetarian fare. It's delicious. The onion bhaji, vegetable samosas, and paneer pakora make delicious appetizers, and the entrees are equally wonderful. We ate here two evenings in a row, and then again two days later, dining on...

From the moment I walked through the door, I was enchanted by the international feel of this unusual dining experience in Golden, Colorado. The food is good and the ambiance is charming. It is a casual place. Perfect for a winter's eve when a hearty bowl of stew and delicious bread with a Nepalese twist hits the spot...après skiing perhaps.... More

A great place for a hearty lunch or supper. The food is tasty and the service is friendly. The prices are moderate. One of our favorites.

The restaurant was beautiful, though we ate outdoors (which was conveniently near the lunch buffet). Service was good, food delicious. Parking was even convenient. We'll go back if we're even in Golden again.

One of the more bizarre restaurant experiences I have ever had. The people who work here don't seem to understand the hospitality industry and customer service. How is this place still in business? When we walked in, it was weird that no one was sitting in the dining room but it soon became clear why: no a/c, even though it... More

This has become one of our favorite restaurants outside of Denver. It's worth the drive to enjoy the ambience as well as the food. The patio is a beautiful setting with wonderful landscaping. The lunch buffet has a great variety of authentic Nepalese foods. The decor is inside and out is traditional and reminds of my visit to Tibet.
