Stepping into Nepal's Cafe felt like stepping back in time to our visit to Dharmsala. We were so excited to see momos on the menu! The place was packed, but they were quick with seating and service. We shared two veg dishes and they were both excellent. Highly recommend this place!

Be sure to try the lunch buffet. The food is plentiful and very tasty. Did not find it particularly spicy, so almost anyone should be able to enjoy it. Give it a try.

We were visiting from Illinois, and wanted something fresh and healthy for dinner. Food was excellent. We enjoyed the decor, with photos of various Himalayan peaks, as well as tasteful ethnic pieces. Would return for sure!

Wonderful food, homespun, family run place. The only drawback is that these great reviews make for some crowds. We ate outside in the evening and service was understandably slow due to the crowd. But be patient and you will be rewarded.

Rich and delicious food. A nice mid day buffet but you can also order off the menu which is broad and has unique offerings. The Mango Curry and Begun Bharta dishes were excellent.

Nice Spicy indian curry food in middle of a small mountain town. The spice was perfect, the serving sizes were at the smaller side, but very aromatic. A hot spicy indian food on a cold day, What more can you ask for.

I was always scared of trying Indian food. We stumbled across Nepal's Cafe a few months back and was delighted they had a buffet! We tried a little bit of everything they had out and loved it all! I couldn't stop myself from going back through several times. Talking with the employees, they explained all the dishes to me when... More
