Went here for lunch. The buffet was excellent and exceptional service. Place was full of local residents and workers. Worth a visit if in Estes Park.

Back again in the fall to meet our friends for dinner after a hike to Dream Lake and around. We discovered that with the 4 of us, we could try more things to get thru the menu and find some more new favorites. We had the Saag Paneer par usual, than added the Vegetable Biryni, the Nepal's Curry, and the... More

We stopped by Nepal's around 2:45 on a Sunday afternoon. Their buffet was still going but we opted for ordering off the menu. I got 'lamb spinach' and it was delicious!! Creamy spinach with tender lamb-yum!! My husband got chicken biryani and he loved it. It was a huge serving!! He said the garlic naan was also really good. Service... More

I wasn't expecting to find very much in the way of ethnic food in a place like Estes Park so was surprised to find a restaurant featuring Indian and Nepalese food. We had two Indian dishes (spinach with paneer and coconut curry chicken) and Nepalese noodles. Pretty decent food, though since this was my first experience with Nepalese food its... More

Too many of us get into a rut when on vacation, strike out and enjoy a new food choice and be suprised of new tastes and wonderful restaurants. Nepal's is truly a differnce to enjoy and store in vacation memories. Wide assortment on the menu and remember the geographic location of Nepal and all of its well known mountain treasures... More

We had Lunch at Nepal's in between activities and elk viewing. The staff was very friendly. The food was excellent. It was somewhat time consuming to get our meal, but well worth the wait. There appear to be many repeat customers which is always a good sign. We would both definitely go back again.

Ok,my second bad meal today. I'm a pretty laid back,open person and always open to try something new. I gave this place a 3 only because we were seated right away and waitress was ok. They had a lunch buffet but after seeing the flies landing on the food we decided to pass and not let that deter us from... More

This was an exciting place to find while staying at Estes. I felt like a mountain climber with the pictures of Mount Everest and the Nepal Flags decorating the restaurant. I had a curry dish and chai tea that was remarkable, highly recommended.
