Family favorite

My husband and son ate here during a college visit in February. They loved it so much we came back while at Mines for orientation this summer. The Naan was outstanding--very tasty with a pillowy texture. A favorite entree was the Chicken Tikka Masala. This will be a family favorite.

I loved the buddhist shrine and all the prayer wheels! We ate in the garden behind the house. It's a lovely atmosphere. My friend, who lived in India for awhile, thought the food was bland and tasteless. I tend to agree. The rice dessert was flavorless with not even a hint of spice, like cinnamon or cardamon. My friend stuck... More

I brought my husband here, who initially complained about the "ethnic" food I was dragging him along to eat, but he was the one who asked to go back here to eat again! Food is consistently delicious.

We ate here on a Sunday for lunch. They serve a buffet at lunch and I think that is a great way to try the food. I thought all the food was good, but nothing was outstanding enough for me to come back. The price was great though. It was under $10. The house is beautiful as is the landscaping.

Been there a few times, both for the buffet and dining. The food is authentic and you'll have a nice selection of South Asian and Nepali dishes. The service is good too and the owner is very nice.

Our family met friends for a delightful lunch at Sherpa House. We ate on the patio under shade trees and had a wonderful buffet of Indian / Nepalese dishes. Staff were very accommodating. The building is wonderfully decorated with cultural beauty. You will not be disappointed. We will definitely be returning.

Go for Dinner. Go for the Lunch Buffet. Just go. As you enter, you see an authentic prayer wheel. The restaurant is in what used to be a home, and it has been decorated as a typical Sherpa home, with classic hearth, altar, and décor. OK, the Yeti in the corner is a little odd - I hope that's not... More

My husband and I came upon this restaurant on a recent visit to Golden, Colorado and I fell in love with this place and with the town. This is a combination of restaurant and cultural center, owened by Nepalese Lhakpa Sherpa and his family. We had the opportunity to meet the family and to personally thank them for such a... More

One of my best lunch buffet I had. Lamb spicy soup was so good here. Tastes my first Yak curry and it was really good. They have verity of options for lunch buffet and all of them were good. Must visit if you are fan of Nepal food.
