“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We chose this place for dinner in Estes Park because it looked different. But first a quick tip - the address is on Elkhorn, which is the main street in town. But the restaurant is actually around the back side of the building, where there's a little pedestrian area. There's only a small sign on the corner to point you around the back.

The restaurant itself is small - maybe 10 tables? Still the cozy feel just adds to the experience. The owner and his staff were very friendly. The food was delicious, and the portions more than generous. Even my yogurt smoothie they refilled for free! :) Prices were very reasonable. The slide show of the owner's recent trip to Nepal was running and that was nice to see. We will come back!

“Crowded but great $9.95 lunch buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Just off the Main Street of Estes Park. Worth the short wait. Very small place and has outdoor seating but not set up that day due to 40 mph winds. More than enough variety on the buffet and all the dishes were excellent. Owner was very nice and accommodating.

“Lack of communication”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Good food. We enjoyed the lunch buffet, but left disappointed after being told kids under 6 were free and then being asked to pay for them. There was miscommunication between the staff which got placed on us and left repeat customers not coming back again.

“Saucy sauce”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I'm not an expert on food from India, but I am a lover of good food no matter its origin. The plates we ordered, lamb, chicken, shrimp and mushroom where all about the sauce. The Naan was great for dipping into the sauce and the rice was wonderful smothered in the sauce., but beyond that not much else. I would guess their meat and fish are purchased prepared. The lamb and shrimp had no flavor, and the chicken was dry and grainy. The place was clean and the service very friendly.

“A fabulous buffet & caring service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Have been wanting to return to this restaurant since 2011. It continues to be an excellent buffet. It was a warn day so we ate outside @ an umbrella table & ordered iced chai tea. the ided Chai is a blended drink topped with whipped cream. My buffet favorites were sag with mushrooms, garlic naan, vegetables with noodles, chicken masala & rice pudding dessert. Everything I've eaten here is very good.

The servers are all very kind and attentive, encouraging diners to try more, refilling ice water & hot chai.
