Only a short 15 minute drive from Glenwood Springs, it is one of the best restaurants in the area - and my family thinks the best Indian/Nepalese restaurants we have been to!
My family ate at Nepal December 28th and again (tonight) January 2nd.
Ratings from 1 - 10 best: Food = 10!, Service=10!, Atmosphere=10!.
It is family owned and run restaurant. The father and son helped us choose the best dishes for us to share, carefully selecting each to complement the other. Everyone was so kind and very welcoming. You can tell they want you to have only the best experience.
Beverages: My brother got the mango lassi, which we all tried and liked. It was creamy and fresh after a long day of skiing Aspen. I had the chia (hot spiced tea with milk), that our server kept refilling throughout both our meals. My parents both had a glass of red wine.
Our server / the owner, suggested the combo platter. It was just enough for the 4 of us to split it and not be full for our entrees. There are many different naans to choose from; the 1st night the waiter mixed the cheese and garlic, and the 2nd night cheese and onion - I wanted another order of the cheese onion as I have never tasted the delicious combination before but my Mom told me not to overeat :). Entrees: we tried two veggie dishes: the eggplant curry, and saag paneer (indian cheese sautéed with spinach); we wanted both so our server kindly told us he could do a half order of them. Meat: our server suggested the chicken korma, and lamb makhani. My brother wanted another lamb dish but my parents told him we ordered enough, BUT kindly our server said he would bring my brother out a little plate to try it - which made him really happy and us too because we loved it :)
*Every person gets their own steel plate with rice, beans, and two sauces.
2nd night we had the traditional chicken curry, along with a half order of the saag paneer and a suggested a veggie curry dish with vegetable balls. It was great!
Dessert: more mmm... We ordered the khir, which is like rice pudding. It was delicious - sad I had to share it with my brother.
Seriously.... everything that we ordered was amazing, and I am sure that everything else on the menu is equally amazing! Can't wait for our next ski trip to try more things on the menu!
My only wish is that they would open Nepal in Houston :) -- or at least provide cooking classes so next time we are here I can learn how to cook their dishes for myself at home!
