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.

We loved the food here! The seating indoors is pretty crowded and our table abutted the door and the line of people waiting for tables. Outdoor seating available in good weather, but it was cold and raining when we were there.

This restaurant features Nepali and Indian cuisine, as a blend of the two cultures. The result is more spicy, complex flavors than Nepali food. The owner and crew are very friendly and we enjoyed chatting about Nepal and his travels. I had a lamb dish and my wife enjoyed a spicy chicken and vegetable dish. All were prepared perfectly and...

After 15 years in the U.S our family had longed to find a curry cooked just like that we were familiar with back in the U.K. Wow - this curry restaurant is the biz! And never thought we would find somewhere like this at the Gateway to the Rockies. The ambience smacks of being a guest in someone's home ...it... More

Tucked behind the subway in back of a strip of shops was Nepal's. Small but friendly with super food at a good price. They also had a little bar. I had S2 shrimp with yogurt, tomatoes, onions in sauce, medium spicy. My husband had tikka masala. Very delicious and plenty of food. They serve some type of really crispy thin... More

Great food, great price. Authentic Nepalese run, best food we had on our trip. A bit off the beaten path, but worth seeking out
