    The food is excellent but the kitchen gets backed up frequently and the service is lackluster. Order all your food as soon as possible and get a bottle of wine.

    They have unlimited rice, are dog friendly and their lunch special is great.

    The Roti Wrap was fresh and very satisfying, though the wrap seemed like a pre-made tortilla from the grocery store.

    Super cute cafe with great food. Expensive for dinner, but lunch is reasonable. Their spicy fried potatoes are amazing.

    The almond curry is amazing! This place has some of the freshest curries in town. Always best to pick a table on the porch.

    The restaurant trades in Nepalese cooking--dal, chaat, several curries--that tends to be lighter and fresher than most local Indian fare and offers several vegetarian and vegan options. Read more

    Lots of good vegan and gluten free options here. Haven't had one dish I didn't like yet. Love the Ginger Cardamom Chai (you can get soy milk) and the cabbage salad with peanuts ;)

    Get the Golgappa appetizer! Beautiful edible cups of deliciousness! Amazing Mumbai street food. Dip them in the bowl of broth to fill them up a bit, then eat them whole! Splash! Flavor explosion!

    Daily "lunchbox specials" are a great value. The menu is preset, but you are able to choose a vegetarian or meat option for the main entree. Only $10.

    Every culture has its dumpling, but the Nepalese mamacha are in a category all their own. Namaste Cafe makes them with a few different fillings, but our favorite without a doubt is the ground bison.

    Amazing food! I had the spicy lamb and potato and it was phenomenal, and for a pretty reasonable price, all things considered. Our waitress was so sweet and helpful, too. Definitely recommend it.

    Order the potatoes! And namaste special curry. 1) rice that comes with the curry is less, so order extra or a bread/naan. Also a spice level of 2 is good...not too spicy, but enough
