Delicious dinner!

We had a wonderful dinner at Nepals Cafe. Our only regret is that we didn't return for another dinner! They served excellent Nepalese food. Highly recommend!

My husband and I tucked in here to grab dinner to go. The place holds about 5 tables...all were filled. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We ordered and were offered a table to sit at while we waited. We were also given some interesting paper thin bread and sauce to try on the house. It was great! Later... More

We ate at this small place for lunch inside because all seats outside were taken. We both had the lunch buffet very reasonably priced that included tikka masala, vegetarian offering, chill done indian style and even include rice pudding & naan bread with your lunch. Great place but could improve their wait staff little slow.

We didn't expect to find an Indian restaurant while vacationing in Estes, but we were happily surprised. The restaurant itself is tiny - in the summers there are outdoor tables. Food was served very quickly. It was very tasty, especially the naan. I wish we had been here for the lunch buffet, think that would have been great. We'll definitely... More

Very small café. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table, but well worth the wait. Food was spicy, but very tasty.

I absolutely love nepals... Great food and love their chai! But.... The restaurant could use a nice deep cleaning and fresh paint. It is getting gross... Dirt on the doors, the walls, the floors. It would cost them a couple hundred dollars to buy some paint and hire some local cleaners to freshen it up. I would love this restaurant... More

This place was recommended by our local host. We went at 2 pm for the buffet luncheon. The food was tasty with many choices. There were many Nepalese dining there. Highly recommend this place. $10.95 is an amazing price for what you get. Loved all the vegetable dishes and the curries. Family places like this are jewels!

Six of us went for dinner, and it was a success! We had a range of dishes, plus appetizers and they were all fresh and flawless. The small space was packed all the time we were there. Highly recommended.

The restaurant itself is pretty tiny, and though it wasn't very crowded we waited a while after being seated to be noticed again, but the food was amazing. We visited this place and ordered based on other TripAdvisor reviews, and we were so happy we did. The Mutter Paneer and Chicken & Spinach were so good we almost went back... More
