Only a few Gluten Free choices, but for those not restricted by that, this place is wonderful. Tiny place and tucked away, but packed with locals on a weekday. Authentic and delicious.

Service was slow but food was ok and we enjoyed trying Nepal food. We ate about 8pm on outside table in the park area. The inside is small and was very crowded

We ate lunch here. There is a small buffet, which we tried after looking at the menu. Both the chicken Tikki Masala and the chicken curry we excellent, seasoned just right. They were good at bringing out new containers of food. The basmati rice and naan were excellent too. The fried noodles were just very good. The only complaint was... More

Placed a phone order asking for 2 orders of chicken tikka masala. One with a side of green beans instead of rice...was told that would be $2 extra, no problem. When order was picked up and brought back to work there was an order of chicken tikka masala missing. I called and was told that we paid $10.95 for SIDE... More

We came here for lunch and ordered as not many options for vegetarians at Buffet. By all means join the buffet otherwise. Gets pretty crowded but good food! Saw lots of people taking out the food in boxes, so another option if you are in hurry.

Food was really good but restaurant was crampy and that was not comfortable. Food was well made but cannot order outside the menu. Staff/owner's family were decent and helpful. Samosa chat, baigan bharta and saag paneer are really good.

Good things come in small packages. This place is small but the service was great and the food outstanding. This is a must place to go eat when in Estes Park.

This was my second visit and review of Nepal's. This time, I am a bit more critical. A year ago, I thought everything was wonderful. This time, there were a few slip-ups. The chicken tikka and masala were too salty. The small amount of chicken with spicy chicken chili had been left on the buffet too long, and I had... More

They always have a great spread for brunch. Be warned.. they have a trick that they do... When you are half-way done with your buffet sampling they will say something like "Do you want your Chai now?" It sounds like it goes with the Buffet, right? So you're thinking... cool! All this great food for a great price and i... More
