The place looks shabby but the food is pretty good. The signs for the buffet are what drew us in but we ordered from the menu instead. I definitely recommend stopping here and giving this place a try if you like trying new things or if you enjoy Indian/Nepali food.

We have been coming here for years. I think it is family run and definitely authentic. We always come for lunch and enjoy the buffet. The ambiance is nothing special, but that adds to the authenticity.

My husband and came here for dinner and were very pleased! We got something called Chicken Saag and Chicken Momo. The Chicken Saag was a delicious smoked chicken with a creamy spinach base over basmati rice. The Chicken Momo was a steamed dumpling filled with chicken and mixed vegetables served with a slightly spicy chutney dipping sauce. We both ate... More

Great Indian and Nepalese food in Estes Park. Better than alternatives in 50 miles! You can't go wrong if you like Indian food.

I so enjoyed getting my "take-out" from Nepal's Cafe ~ the food is indeed, representative of India, right here in our very own Estes Park.

Delicious lunch buffet of Indian dishes. It's in a lovely location along the river walk. When we're in Estes Park, we must have lunch here.

This is an OK restaurant. We thought they had Nepalese Cuisines but it was just Indian Buffet food. The Rice Pudding was not cooked properly & still had uncooked rice.
