We ate evening meal so buffet was not available. My husband doesn't like Indian food but enjoyed this meal. Naan, chicken tikka masala and saag paneer was excellent. Tasty and nourishing meal with good prices.

We were walking around Estes Park trying to find a restaurant that had something other than pizza, burgers, and steak. We spied a sign that said Nepal's and an arrow, so we headed down that way. If you can find the Subway restaurant, then head toward the back of the plaza, near the water. The place was packed on Monday... More

Buffet was hot and clean, good choices. Everything spiced mild to moderate. Rice pudding with fresh cinnamon and almond slices avail to sprinkle on top, yum. Our vegan friends ate with us and were contented! (Hard to do in a "meat"-oriented western town!) Masala chai was hot and creamy and full of cardamom and wonderful! Our friend got the soy... More

This place might not look like much but the food is excellent. A very welcome change to the typical Estes Park choices.. The service was excellent and the food reasonably priced. The place is rather small but cozy. I would give it five stars but it could use a makeover with some new paint and flooring. Perhaps out of their... More

Stumbled upon this place by chance while wandering around downtown Estes Park. Yes it lacks a little on the decor side and yes it is very small and yes it is always crowded- but the food is wonderful and the staff (I think they're a family) very sweet. The fact that they are always crowded is a silent testimony to... More

We grabbed take-out from here on our way to camping because it got too late for us to cook out. A great game plan. Lamb curry had very good flavor. I tried the mango curry – very much enjoyed the flavor, did not miss the meat. At $10 each, a decent meal. We also had naan, which was good and... More

We were very happily surprised to find such a good Indian restaurant in Estes Park. The place was busy but the service was still good and though they were out of one thing we ordered (so sorry not to have gotten to try their samosas), they suggested an alternative that was new to us and very good.

Just moved to town recently and have tried a number of places and this is by far my favorite. Small and cramped, but the food is very tasty and the service is exceptional.

The good - food was delicious, great prices, friendly staff. The bad- needs a good cleaning, tablecloth's filthy, needs a paint job, floors very dirty. Very small space. Need website and on line menu In summary- go for takeout. We are not snobs but they really need to find a bucket of hot water, soap and a sponge. We sat... More
