The seasoning on nepalese food is amazing. We had the napali rice and potato bamboo shoots. We had masu chicken. It was amazing. They also served us flat bread on the side. I would highly recommend this place for a "something different" kind of cuisine. I love this 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

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.

Little Nepal is a gem. I love this place- it is very clean and designed with care. The dishes are carefully prepared with love and my guests were impressed. If you haven't been over
to Cortland Ave in Bernal- check it out.

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

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
