All 4 in our family opted for the lunch buffet (Nepali/Puerto Rican dishes today) -- a flavorful and healthy mix of authentically prepared dishes. The staff were attentive, warm, and good-humored. We enjoyed our meal immensely and agreed that this visit was an "Upohar" -- a gift -- to us. Many thanks.

Upohar serves lunch and dinner We went for lunch and some of us had the buffet and some ate off the menu. Everything was really good. None of us are vegetarians so all of us found the selections surprisingly tempting and flavorful. We all agree we will go back again. The prices are very good.

We had the blessing of being able to dine here recently. Server Katya and Chef Christina were awesome!! While we are not vegetarians, we do enjoy fine vegetarian fare. I could go on and on about how great the food was, but I won't. I will simply say, if you like to taste the flaovors of the world, give them a try. My only drawback is the fact hat it is about 30 miles from home. However, we'll see you soon! Thanks again for a truly enjoyable dinning experience.

We drove up from Maryland to go to a show and decided to have lunch here. Wow it was one of the best lunches we have had in sometime. The flavors were bold yet not overly complicated. Christine came over and we chatted with her for 20 minutes and she told us how the restaurant got started and how much they give back to the local community....this is a place you can feel good eating at!! We can't wait to get back!

Just had the buffet lunch at Upohar. Yum! A great place to get a bit of the world's food and flavors. Just walk in and tell them your here for the buffet. Pick your seat and grab a plate! Very easy. You can also order off the menu. Everything tastes great! Very friendly staff and nice ambiance.
