Great food, lovely outdoor space

Visited their lunch buffet on accident while in Golden for the first time with friends. I would definitely recommend it! Their outdoor patio is very nice and very near the buffet for convenience.

Definitely visit Sherpa House while in Golden. The food (we had the lunch buffet) is wonderful and the service is even better. The buffet is not your typical buffet and is clean and fresh. The selections offer up something for everyone (vegetarian, meat eaters, etc...) and all are delicious. I recommend trying the craft beer as well...it's not a CO... More

The restaurant is easy to find. When driving on highway 93 look for the 19th street exit. Turn right, go down a few blocks to Washington, then turn left and around 16th street look up to your left and you will see the colorful old building. It has a kind of "groove" to it when you eat there and the... More

Excellent Nepalese food in a great setting! We have been enjoying having quiet dinners in the main building for years, but we were recently on the Sherpa House patio for a Colorado School of Mines event. It worked out great! They put a lot of my favorite dishes in the buffet, and the setting was so tranquil. They had set... More

I don't usually like Nepalese/Indian food but Sherpa House proved the exception. The food was very fresh, not greasy, the nan was fluffy rather than flat and chewy. The chai tea was wonderful with the meal. Waitstaff kept our water glasses filled without asking and the service was quick and attentive.

We have tried a lot of restaurants in golden as we visit in-laws here every year. Most are mediocre mid west fare. Sherpa House was delicious! Authentic food in a charming atmosphere. This is the only place we have ever wanted to come back to. Which we definitely will!

I ordered food over the phone to go and was stunned after arriving at this place. This is really soothing. Very nice calm, composed atmosphere inside. Very nice people from Nepal.

The food was so good here that I would go back again. But getting seated was a bit of a mess. I went in early to ask about a reservation and was told I would not need one. When we arrived, we were told that the wait would be 15 minutes. One hour later we sat down to eat. We... More

I like this restaurant for several reasons. The menu is not ordinary, you can get things like Yak and curries. The service is always good. My teenage daughters love this place because it is just a little exotic. They ask you how hot (spicy) you like your food when you order it and if you order it hot prepare yourself.
