Good Healthy Food, not very sophisticated

Sherpa Cafe offers good and healthy Nepali and Indian food, which is not very sophisticated. Interior is simple and pleasant, from the window you can view Mountain Crested Butte. We like this restaurant and visit it when in Crested Butte.

I have been here three times. The Gunnison location is very good! The Crested Butte location lacks. There was a one woman cooking and serving, and she would not come out of the kitchen for fifteen minutes at a time. Every time they have been out of items, and the service has always been terrible. They really need to hire... More

This place is like a sad, bad joke. The menu described a dish of "Tibetan, home-made noodles", on the plate it was a small pile of reheated, store-bought spaghetti in an oily substance. Save yourself a disappointment, stay away. Don't start me about the service...

We ordered chicken tikka masala and a Nepali beef-noodle-vegetable stew called thukpa. Both dishes arrived within a couple minutes and were bland and tasteless. We also ordered naan, and it was burnt around the edges and on the bottom. The chicken tikka masala was the worst I've ever had. We both left about half of our food unfinished, it was... More

This visit we brought friends to try something unique. Unfortunately we had really bad service and it took a really long time to get meal. Usually we love this place. I hope they get some good help.

I've been to Sherpa's twice, about a year between visits. Because of the rude waitstaff (the main lady) and lack of fresh cooked to order food I will not be returning.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this small eatery tucked away off the main street. It almost felt like we were back in Namche. The small , cozy dining room was heated by a space heater !The food offering is varied- Nepalese, Indian and Tibetan. We had a delicious vegetable stew and naan. We enjoyed exchanging some stories with a... More

The drinks horrible even the simple lemonade was a joke. The food was a real bummer and tasted like it came from a can. The place as empty and we should have know better then to sit down. We were just craving Tibetan food and took a chance.

We enjoyed the food at the Sherpa. I felt like it was over priced but the chai tea was delicious! If you are looking for a different meal, this is the place to go.
