At least it seems authentic not being from Nepal. The decor is traditional and colorful. The food all tasted very good. We have appetizer platters and baskets of naan. The tikka masala (lamb and chicken) was really good. We even ordered yak stew to have the full experience. The stew was not quite as good as the other dishes but... More

I had a delicious lunch at Sherpa's today. It is a self service buffet with many options of entrees, some of which are vegetarian. I particularly enjoyed the Saag and the lentil soup, but everything I tried was good.

The Sherpa House restaurant in Golden is authentic in food and decor. There are several cozy rooms with different decorations to match a traditional Nepali home. The large outside patio is ideal in good weather. The menu is extensive. The wait staff is a little stiff, but efficient. I had the Sizzler combination which is served on a hot metal... More

Went to Sherpa House last night. This restaurant has been on our list of places to try for quite some time. Having been there now, I wish we wouldn't have waited so long to try it. It was a busy Friday night, but we only waited about 10 minutes. Once seated the service was prompt and friendly, and he waited... More

A very authentic menu. The owner is a Nepali Sherpa and was a professional mountain climber. Extensive menu and ingredients were very fresh. Décor and atmosphere excellent, service impeccable. If visiting Golden and Colorado School of Mines then then I would suggest this restaurant would rank as a must visit.

Incredible patio, best in Golden! Food delicious as well. Love the chicken tikka masala with a Sherpa ale. I can't say enough about the landscaping adding to the experience.

I am a regular at Sherpa House. It is located on Washington up the hill to the south from Downtown Golden. They have a great lunch buffet at a reasonable price, interesting Himalayan decor and a very nice outside garden area in the summer.

If you like Indian food, you should try Nepalese food. Of course, the big difference, which makes it popular for Americans, is that there is beef on the menu. They also offer yak but we passed on that. We had naan and momo, which are fried dumplings. Both were excellent. My wife also had the Caesar salad. For an entree,... More

I only went there for lunch and had the buffet, but the food was really good. Not the Americanized type of food some places serve but the real deal you can actually eat when you travel to Asia. The decoration of the restaurant is somewhere between traditional and too much but again really what you would find in such a... More

i drive 20 minutes out of the way to go to this place. the service is top-notch, and you feel as though you're walking through a museum complete with a hilarious yeti creeping in the back room. the food is authentic- the best i've had outside of india or my nepali friends' kitchens- and they serve tibetan specialties as well....
