Delicious vegan options

There are a few vegan dishes at their lunch buffet and on the regular menue. Tasty and delicious. Atmosphere not particularly inviting but maybe different in the summer with outside seating

The winery in town recommended this cute hole in the wall. Took forever to find. In a strip mall thing behind Subway, no signs. We shared the Nepal's Naan, pretty tasty :) also shared the mango curry and coconut curry chicken. They were both amazing!!! Decent prices, more rice on request, really friendly staff, lots of options on the menu!... More

Excellent food, and amazing service from the owners!, unexpected! Love it! The place is very small, and old, but the owner attended us extremely well and he makes the best cold Chai Tea ever!

Not much for atmosphere but the food is awesome. We ate her twice in 3 days. Fresh and tasty. Served very quickly with great friendly service. Really great food. Naan is perfect. Small restaurant so may have to wait during busy season but it is worth it. They have a buffet which we did not try but if its anything... More

The minute I entered Nepal's Cafe I felt transported to one of the many tea houses that line the Annapurna region and famous trails. The small restaurant with just a few tables felt very authentic and feels more like you are a guest at a Nepali home. Do not expect the typical Americanized Indian/Nepalese restaurant. Nepal's Cafe is the real... More

We love this place! Our favorite nepalese place. We eat here everytime we visit Estes. Everything is tasty from the naan, buffet, menu items. Service is friendly and fast. My new favorite is the chili shrimp!

Thirty two Peace Corps Volunteers from Nepal had our reunion catered by the Shresta family. We were not disappointed. The food is authentic, delicious and available in great variety. I ate there three of six days!

As others have said, food is good but yes, it seems very chaotic and unorganized. My husband got his food 10 minutes before me and I insisted he eat while it was hot, which was awkward. If you don't mind that kind of environment and would do anything for Indian food, then you'll be fine.

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
