This is the only place I have been to for lunch in Estes Park because it's so good, I can't try anything new! The restaurant and the buffet is small, but the flavor is huge. There is also a menu to order from but I always head straight to the buffet. Don't miss the Chai. The people are super nice... More

We go to Nepal every visit to Estes Park. Reasonable prices and fantastic Nepalese dining. It is a treat! It is quite small but in winter, not hard to get seated without a wait with the smaller seasonal crowds.

We came here for dinner while staying in Estes Park recently. We were looking for a restaurant that offered healthy, vegan options and wouldn't break the bank. This cozy nook just was perfect for us. The workers were all friendly and it felt like a family-run business. The waiter offered to substitute coconut milk into any curry that we wished... More

We stopped in to try the lunch buffet and were very impressed. All the dishes were good, I especially liked the spicy chile chicken. The service was friendly and efficient. We will come back!

We stopped in for lunch today and were very impressed with the lunch buffet. Usually there are things you leave on your plate before you go back for seconds because they just weren't as good as everything else. Not so at Nepal's Cafe. All four of us cleaned our plates before going back for more. Even though they were out... More

This place is a true find. If you've ever traveled off the beaten trail, third world or want to experience authentic ethnic deliciousness than this is it. Our three dishes were awesome. It is a small, intimate dining space. Nothing fancy, just amazingly good. If you like Indian or Nepalese cuisine, it will be a treat for you. The restrooms... More

We came back to Nepal's after 4 years and found the family-run spot much the same as before - very small, friendly, inexpensive and tasty. This time we stuffed ourselves on the lunch buffet with a variety of dishes. The chicken tikka masala was probably the best while the mushroom saag lacked much flavor. The walls are covered in Himalayian... More

I'll be honest: Estes doesn't have phenomenal restaurants. But Nepal's was among the very best of what we experienced when my wife and I were there earlier this month. We especially liked the chicken tikka masala. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and nice scenery. We'll be back if we're ever back in Estes.
