We have been coming to Estes Park for 25 years and have always had trouble finding any good food, thank goodness for Tripadvisor! We looked at reviews and decided to give Nepal's a try. We have walked by this place for years and never thought to go in, really Indian food in Estes? But, OMG, it was so good, so... More

I now know why there are 1-3 star reviews. Americans are, as a culture, impatient. It is hard for the typical American tourist to wait for their feed trough. This is where the low raters come in! The food IS wonderful - no dispute. However, it is made AFTER you order it - fresh and authentic. This is NOT OG,... More

We had garlic nann and chicken briyani. Everything was amazing! If I visit the Rockies again, I will definitely visit!

I live in Estes Park and so I know the local options very well. Without a doubt, Nepal's has the best food in town. The guys who work for me get their lunch there all the time and as I write this my wife is on her way to get takeout from them. The food is wonderful and the owners... More

We had the lunch buffet and it was very good. The buffet was well attended and everything was freshly put out. Everything was very clean. The restaurant is tiny and quaint. It seems like a family that is running it. I love finding locally owned and operated restaurants!

Every time I am in the state, and I mean the state, I go to Nepal's. A great meal and a mango lassi. Every trip to Rocky Mountain National Park or up Longs Peak ends at Nepal's! hem and family are super friendly.

This is the BEST food in town. The flavor packed spicy Indian dishes are just the thing to warm you up after a brisk day in the park. And the chai is delicious. The staff are attentive and friendly and the prices are very good.

We had dinner here - excellent! We had a short wait for a table. The location is a little tricky, it is sort of behind the Subway restaurant that is easy to spot from the main drag through town.

Nepal's is a nice place. Has a $9.99 buffet that includes most dishes Americans would eat. This saves from the anxiety of ordering something on the menu that you may not like. I had the buffet, and i enjoyed it. The downside to this restaurant is it's size... There is only about 8 tables, and one of them is where... More

We heard about this place from a friend who lives in Estes, and the food is truly a tasty delight! I tried pretty much everything on the buffet - all was good. Especially liked both the veggie and chicken curry. The staff is very friendly, and the place is up and running strong after the flood.
