Delicious!

This little and cozy restaurant is located near the Bernal Heights. The staff is very friendly and the food was just delicious! Order the Combo and you get lentils, naan bread, basmati rice and vegetables as side dish! It is definitely worth to visit this place.

I'm wasn't amazed, but I wasn't disappointed. Food was fresh and tasty. Side dishes could have been a bit warmer, but entrees were quite good. Dining room is well appointed and bathroom is clean. Service was good. Street parking at 6pm was easy and safe.

This was such an amazing experience: from the service, to the flavors and my lamb.... tender and spiced perfectly, not at all fatty like I am used to. If I lived in San Francisco, I would come here weekly.

Cool place really good food. The food was really really good, service is friendly. Those are the main point, the location not so sure. It is not a bad neighborhood it's just not a popular place.

While visiting San Fran, my daughter recommended this place to us and we tried it. We had the traditional Nepal food for two and liked it very much. The service was also good and the price was surely reasonable. Will go back the next time I am in the area.

People who like Indian food will probably like Little Nepal as well. Nepalese cuisine is clearly South Asian. But it is also different enough from North Indian cuisine to make it distinct. There seems to be less heat in the spice, but at least as much flavor in the food. The variety of dishes is adequate, if not amazing. Everything... More

After spending 4 months in actual Nepal, coming to Little Nepal was a truly wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious, and though it was much richer than most of the food I ate while there, and the restaurant much cleaner and calmer, it was quite authentic. My meal was certainly some of the best Nepali food I've had. My... More

This small specialty restaurant is a most-dine experience. There are not many Nepal restaurants even in San Francisco, so this fills a culinary void. Plus - it is very good. If you doubt us, read the reviews and, more importantly, just try to drop in. It is usually packed and a line for people waiting. That alone is a great... More

Order over $100 in food and got 4 cubes of meet per plate. Did not even feed 3 people. They did not send the complete order on top of it and basically told me good luck we are not sending your missing ordered dish. They charge you a royalty for delivering they send you one eighth of the portion served... More
