...typically a sign that the spices used have gone stale in storage (they absorb mothball odors). Otherwise, cheery staff, cheery prices, and cheery ski-lodge style decor. Limited menu (mostly variations on 4-5 basic dishes) with weak desert options. Slow service for a small restaurant.

Little Nepal made our regular tuesday night with great dinner experience! Its cramping place - just accommodating less than 12 tables - is well compensated by it's warm ambiance and delicious food. The waitresses and patrons were all friendly, which added to our warm experience of the night. The Kukhurako Ledo that my sweet Che ordered, and the Spicy Minced Lamb for myself satisfied not only our appetite but as well our taste buds! The food was such a treat! It was our first visit and it won't be our last.. We highly recommend the place!

Only went here once but thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was great, service was friendly, the wood paneled walls were nice. It's a good place to go when you're in the mood for something different. Can get a little hot on warm, muggy days, but it's worth the trip up the hill.

I had passed by Little Nepal so many times, but only just recently did I finally make it there for dinner. I had read good reviews about the food and was excited to try it out. Little Nepal totally surpassed my expectations and I can't wait to go back and try it again, especially if there really isn't a corkage fee when bringing my own wine.

My girlfriend and I went there last week because it was listed in the Entertainment Book we purchased. Not many people around 7pm when we walked in with no reservations but it filled up fast by 7:30. Nice cozy atmosphere. Good service. Food was good except the lentils and vegetable curry did not have much flavor. I do not live there so probably won't go back. Glad I tried it though.

The atmosphere and service at Little Nepal are great. I felt transported by the staff who were wearing traditional Nepalese attire and by the wall decorations. The staff, who love talking about their native Nepal, are friendly and pleasant.
However, the food, while decent, could use a little more oomph. We ordered the sizzling lamb platter and a chicken curry. The lamb was dry and a bit tough and the curry, being on the watery side, just didn't have the punch of Indian and Thai curries.
The prices are fair (entrees, including both naan and basmati rice range from $10 to $14).

I haven't been to Nepal, so I don't know what Nepalese food is supposed to taste like, but if Little Nepal is any indication, Indian food and Nepalese food are the same thing. I'm not sure why people were waiting out the door for tables when they can get tandoori grilled meat and fish at any other Indian restaurant in the city. Don't get the Momo (which is basically potstickers with tikka masala sauce) - any chinese place will serve up a better dumpling.

Great service, nice decor, clean and spotless. Everyone at my table thought their meal was great. I ordered tandoori lamb and unfortunately it was really overcooked and dry. But everyone raved about their food so I'm willing to give it another chance.

The food was average. They offered mostly Indian dishes which are common to most Indian restaurants. This is not a vegetarian restaurant as the citysearch marks it as. It offers vegetarian dishes like many other restaurants. Ambience was decent though.
