Came in after a great hike in RMNP for the lunch buffet. There were about a dozen or so food options, though nothing was even slightly spicy (which I prefer). The food was okay, but I wonder if it would have been better to skip the buffet and pay more to have the dishes freshly prepared; things tasted a bit... More

Great food and great service! Accommodated a group and they were happy to give us separate bills. The menu was so good, it was hard to decide. Wish we had time to go back!

Namaste. I forgot to greet the owner in traditional Nepali/Indian style and I should know better given many friends who have worked/lived in Nepal. A friendly welcome makes up for the somewhat chaotic but incredibly helpful and willing service. The menu is varied with dishes containing meat, fish and those suitable for vegetarians. I recommend Nepal's curry, but all of... More

We had lunch there after looking at reviews. The service is ok but not exceptional. The food was typical Indian restaurant fare with americanized chicken tiki masala etc etc. Keep in mind that if you want to have a beer with your lunch, and who doesn't when having Indian, you will have to sit indoors as it seems the the...

We had an amazing dinner with Nepal's samosa's with yogurt appetizer (which were not only delicious but beautifully presented), the coconut curry chicken and the Nepal chicken. Can't say how wonderful both of our dinners were. Both indoor and outdoor tables are available stream-side, tucked away behind the hustle and bustle of the main drag. Such a lovely spot outside....

It was a perfect, mild summer evening--we arrived at about 7 PM on a Sunday. All of the tables, both in side and outside on the patio, were filled. We stood in the shade and enjoyed people watching for about 10 minutes. Two tables, one outside, and one just inside the open front door emptied and were cleaned. Four people... More

Restaurant tucked away at the back of the shops facing downtown, opens to the courtyard by the river. It has a nice buffet with really good, fresh food; the smells waft into the courtyard which always makes my mouth water. The service is pretty good. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the area to eat... More

Two of us went for the buffet lunch and we took two plates each, just not to mix up the foods. The manager/owner came up to serve water (it was very busy) and started asking questions about who is going to eat all the foods that we brought. We haven't even started eating our food then. I have seen buffets... More

True Nepal restaurant run by Nepalese crew: proximity to Rockies NP must establish some similarities to Himalaya as the food is clearly as good as back home: excellent curries, samosas and other naans, with great rice dishes and delicious lassis - never expected to find so good Nepalese/Indian place in a remote corner of Colorado.
