When in Estes Park, the major gateway town to Rocky Mountain National Park, most non-vegetarian visitors will and should probably focus on local game they can't find at home for most dinners. However, you will probably want to mix that up at least one night. That's where Nepal's comes in. I... read more

The food here was phenomenal, and I really enjoyed it. It was quite a long wait for our food (estimated 20min), but I feel like it was worth it. The seating is limited, so I would recommend arriving before the crowds start coming in. If you have time to do the buffet, do so! Unfortunately, we came at dinner time... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants for lunch in Estes Park. They have a small buffet, with rice, a few meat dishes (generally chicken), a couple of veggie dishes, naan, and rice pudding. The food is delicious and fresh. You have a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. I ate here a few days ago, and my meal was... More

Low on seating, but great on taste. Stopped in for lunch and had the buffet ($10.95!). It's not on the main drag in Estes, but just around the corner from it. Outdoor seating, and a very responsive crew that's eager to please. If you like Nepalese/Indian, this place won't disappoint.

I was planning on only giving this place 3 stars because the service was so bad. Our family stood waiting for 5 minutes before anybody even offered to help. The place is also a total dive. The frosted mug they brought me for my beer was dirty and the bathrooms are atrocious, AND the only high chair looks like it's... More

The food was delicious and the service was gracious- such a great find in an alley- like setting. My husband and I had the lunch buffet ($10.95) drink extra- yum! It would be easy for the vegetarian an meat-eater to both find happiness here. Dishes were fresh and nicely spiced.

My wife and I ended up here for dinner on a Wednesday night and saw how busy it was so we grabbed a menu and placed an order to go. The prices were fair for the area and looking around the restaurant I figured we would be getting a decent amount of food. We order one app and 2 entrées... More

I am very familiar with Indian food. This restaurant was full and a little understaffed, but they were so nice, it didn't matter. The complementary pappadums and chutney were good. Shrimp curry, garlic naan bread and vegetable pakoda appetizer were great. Beer was good and well priced. Food prices reasonably. Great meal!

One of the best "hole in the wall" joints I have ever been too. Everything we had was delicious. Even that is an understatement. So authentic, the portion sizes were very generous for the price and the food was so unbelievably good I didn't want to stop eating! And I was full! Yes, the service could have been a little...

This is a small, informal restaurant that serves North Indian and Nepalese food. There is outdoor and indoor seating. The Indian food is more “home-style” than most restaurants serve so it has less cream/butter. We found it very tasty, hot, and fresh. Service was great. The only real issue with this restaurant is that the bathrooms are filthy. The management... More
