One of my Favorite Restaurants ... Ever! - Edit

I first ate at Namaste Nepal just a few weeks after they opened & was sold! My husband & I continue to eat here on a regular basis. The food is fabulous & the staff extremely accommodating. Our local Vegan Life Colorado frequently plans our monthly luncheons at Namaste Nepal, & the staff bends over backwards to make each of those luncheons a pleasant experience for all. My daughter (a vegetarian) told me, as a general rule, she does not care for Indian food. After persuading her to just try this restaurant once, she succumbed & it has now become one of her favorite places to eat, as well. My young grandchildren are also vegetarian & were able to find plenty of food they loved that filled them up. Namaste Nepal offers a very affordable all-you-can-eat lunch buffet 7 days a week with several vegetarian & vegan items included. Even though there are plenty of meat dishes on the menu, vegetarian dishes are clearly marked & the owners & staff will gladly veganize them for you. In addition to their extensive food menu, they also offer wine, beer & other spirits to accompany one's meal. If you have not yet eaten at Namaste Nepal on Orchard Mesa, you are missing out!

Pros: Excellent food & alcohol available, if desired, Will gladly veganize items on their menu, Good value & accommodating staff

Cons: Can't think of any, offhand

Namaste still a winner - Edit

Namaste Nepal has now been open for 2 years and has many local fans and a steady stream of interstate and international travelers that drop down from I-70, as Grand Junction is halfway between Denver and Salt Lake City. I usually eat here weekly and our local vegan group, Vegan Life Colorado, routinely schedules group luncheons here. There are 29 items on the menu that are marked with a star as vegan or that can be veganized upon request. No other restaurant in town offers so many vegan choices. The quality of the food is quite good and the service is impeccable. The restaurant is always clean and tidy. The daily lunch buffet is a great deal and you can order off the menu at any time. The Thapa family is very friendly and accommodating to vegan diners.

Undoubtedly my favorite restaurant in GJ. While the presence of meat is a bummer, the vegan selection is quite extensive. The food is delicious, portions LARGE, and the staff are truly incredible - they are always extremely helpful, nice, and humble. You can't beat it.

love or hate it - Edit

I have heard many good things about this restaurant. We decided to try it and I was not that impressed. My son is allergic to dairy and eggs and even though we were told items did not contain those items, he had an allergic reaction while we were there. I lost my appetite after that and we left. What I did get to try was very spicy and just not to my liking. Needless to say, I have not been back since. I guess to each his own.

Pros: Downtown atmosphere, Something other than salad

Cons: Dark restaurant, Skeptical on what is actually vegan after allergic

aeneas1948 06 Nov 2016 - You apparently ate at Nepal Restaurant, which is downtown on Main Street. I do not like them anymore since they changed ownership. Namaste Nepal Restaurant, a different place with different owners, is located a few miles away from downtown on Orchard Mesa. Their food and service is excellent and their menu clearly identifies all vegan choices, and there are many. Please give them a try sometime. I think you will have a much better experience!

DeeMouse6 18 May 2017 - I believe you ate at a different restaurant in downtown GJ with a similar name, not to be confused with Namaste Nepal, which is on Orchard Mesa, & is excellent! I believe you accidentally reviewed the downtown restaurant, giving a poor rating. I hope it won't keep people from trying this one. It is by far superior than the one downtown.
