“Fun and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We went with a group of 11. We ordered all sorts of different menu items and dined family-style, passing the large plates of food around. The lamb dishes were great, a treat for me, everyone gave the various dishes a thumbs-up. Seems like a family-run operation. They got the order messed up a little but since we were doing it family-style we weren't out of food. They quickly remedied the situation. I think it is appropriate for couples, families, larger special occasions like birthdays,etc. and even a fun first date. They have one of those old-fashioned sort of coin-operated fortune teller contraptions in the entry area of to the side, and the fortune teller is a yak! Very funny! The bill with several beers, for 11 of us was just under $140, keeping in mind that we didn't each order a dinner, but we did order quite a few to share, and there were leftovers ! Great value. Our friends who invited us are regulars and we can see why.

“Good value, good food, good ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

You rarely hear "good value" and "Boulder" in the same sentence when describing a restaurant. We ate at Sherpa's tonight for the first time. The seating areas, whether inside or out, offer excellent ambiance, with the interior decorated with pictures from the Himalayas, and the outside perfect for a summer evening meal. We had 2 appetizers which were very well priced (the bread at $2.50 was a bargain), and an entree apiece. The entrees were good, maybe not great ethnic food, but you couldn't beat the price. Their beer and wine was very reasonable (I thought the draft beer was another bargain). The service was a bit rushed, but friendly. Overall, we thought it was an excellent dining experience and wouldn't hesitate to return. An added bonus is that one of the chefs has scaled Everest multiple times.

Recently ate lunch here and loved it! Their lunch special is the best bargain in Boulder. The atmosphere is great, as is the food and service. Will return next trip for dinner.

“Indian/Nepalese Food in a Great Outdoor Garden/Bistro Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

The outdoor garden setting truly makes a dinner (or lunch) at Sherpa's a great experience. The food is very good, with the Saag Panir getting top honors. The Veg member of our group had lots of options on the menu. As noted by another TA reviewer : Indian food + Fat Tire + outdoor garden = a great meal experience. Dinner for 7 with beers was about $100.
