We had read the overwhelmingly positive reviews and, being very keen on Indian / Bengali / Pakistani restaurants, thought we'd try something a little bit different. It was well worth it! The waiters were very helpful in explaining the dishes which were unfamiliar to us and clearly took pride in the restaurant / cuisine. We followed their recommendations and the Nepali meals were very good. The food was generally a little spicier than we were used to, but the spices were well-balanced and it left us with a warm glow rather than anything unpleasant. A few agreeable bottled beers and extremely friendly staff made it all a really enjoybale visit.

Well located, in the center of Amsterdam with also a few tables outside, where we seated. Excellent service, both the waiters were amazingly prepared on the menu and they recommended us the “dal bhat tarkari”, a tradional Nepalese dish composed by rice, a lentil soup, some vegatbles in a spicy sauce, a yogurt sauce and some marinated chicken/vegetables (vegetarian option). Well, it was delicious and it really filled us. The price was a bit high, but still reasonable due to the location and to the appetizers they served us when we arrived.

Dear F4980UFfrancescol, Glad to hear that you had an amazing dinner at Sherpa. Dal-bhat is the most popular Nepalese dish at Sherpa because you can try several items and flavors in one dish. We would like to thank you very much for the recommendation and hope to see you soon again.

Great little place with an interesting menu. Staff were welcoming and friendly and the food that arrived was beautifully cooked and wonderfully flavoured. The only reason this is not a 5 out of 5 rating was the speed food was served which was too quick between courses. It stopped it being a relaxing meal. Overall though great. Certainly deserves its ratings.

The best Indian restaurant we’ve visited (abroad and in the UK). On arrival we were created by very friendly and helpful staff, who knew the menu inside out. Excellent service and the food was superb. Would highly recommend and will return next time we’re Amsterdam.

This was my favorite meal over our entire stay in Amsterdam. We sampled the momo, naan, biryani, and tandoori chicken. All of it was delicious, and the service was good as well. The meals are served family style, so it's helpful to for everyone to order something different. I would definitely come back when in Amsterdam again.

This place is really nice. They’ve authentic interior. I’m on a wheelchair, but the guy with dreadlocks helped me with everything. Ask him to recommend what to choose and how to eat correctly - he’s aware of everything and knows what he’s talking about. I’d definitely would visit the place, when I’m in Amsterdam again.

We happened upon Sherpa on a wet and cold night when we simply wanted to eat and get dry. What a find! We ordered the 3 course meal for 2 which came with 2 different appetizers, 3 mains and a dessert. It was all delicious with a shout out to the lamb main dish as the best. And Service was amazing! Very fortunate find!

Very good food, warm service and nice atmosphere. It is good for all ages and group sizes in my opinion! The waitress was extremely helpful in recommending us some Nepalese dishes, I had a lumb curry Gorka style (not sure what that means but it was really tasty and the meat was so tender and well cooked), whilst my girlfriend opted for a paneer cheese dish which she also loved. Food is very reasonably priced- for two mains, a sharing naan bread, and two drinks overall it came to 50 euros (so about 40 pounds), which for a sit-in meal in the centre of a capital city in Northern Europe is good value (or at least I feel). Toilet facilities could be improved if I had to pick a negative

I checked the ratings on google map and found Sherpa, what a great find! We sat outside and the blankets were available if you feel a bit cold. The service was great, the guys weren't just serving the food they had great knowledge about what they were serving too. The portions were substantial and the taste was amazing. We asked for extra chillies and spices and they have done it just like we asked. I found Amsterdam a bit on the expensive side but for the prices that we paid at other restaurants they were fair value. If you fancy a tasty Nepalese quality food just book a table. Thank you Sherpa!

Had dinner in this restaurant with 8 friends and we all had a great time. The service is remarkably kind and helpful in suggesting items from the menu (which comes with a long choice of items). The food was simply great. 10/10 would recommend!

Great location, super close to Leidseplein and Paradiso. A few tables outside, but they were occupied when we arrived. Staff is on-point and works hard, but don't carry a smile or I would describe welcoming and kind. Nothing wrong with that. My first time Momo's, chicken: it wasn't as tasty as I hoped. Served with a cold tomato sauce? Their spicy coriander sauce is delicious, too bad I didn't get it with my Tibetan main dish, as it was mentioned in the menu. I got the "Yeti's Food", stirfried noodles with chicken and vegetables, but this was a utter and complete miss. I wanted to give Tibetan food a try, but this flavorless, only grease, and practically no veggies in there. It was also a huge plate that you could share with someone else. The chicken looked so out of place among the noodles... My friend got a chicken curry, and that looked more appetizing, and better portions. Didn't get to taste it, but I think you'll have a better chance at a hit with a curry. The garlic/cheese naan bread was amazing, seemed freshly prepared. The inside of the restaurant is very small, tables and such don't really look modern or renovated, but the mix of tibetan/nepalese and Indian decorations has some charm to it! All in all I think that having the Tibetan kitchen as an option is unnecessary, it were only 6 dishes (half of them veggies) presented as Tibetan anyway. It makes me want to go to restaurants where they are very focused and experienced on 1 cuisine. Perhaps there are amazing hits with their Nepalese and Indian dishes, and the Naan bread was delicious. Momo's could use a lot more flavor in my opinion. All in all, I had a good time, but not sure if I'd eat there again.

Dear AstridHunt, First of all thank you very much for taking your time to share your dining experience at Sherpa. We are alway eager to hear honest and constructive feedbacks from our guests. All your orders are freshly prepared as opted so spiciness is adjusted as chosen. There is little veggies in the noodle dishes however, we can always add more veggies upon request from our guests. The Momo chutney is always served cold and that's the authentic way of serving momos in Nepal and Tibet as well. Please accept our sincere apologies for not being able to meet your expectations during your recent visit. In your next visit to us, please speak with our team about your taste buds so they will make sure your preferences are addressed correctly. Once again thank you very much for choosing Sherpa and hope to see you soon again for a better experience.

I promised Gautham that I would review the restaurant, and its really a pleasure to do so. Having had a relatively mediocre experience of Nepalese and Tibetan cuisine in London, I really wasn't expecting to be impressed, and that is perhaps why I enjoyed the food so much. The service was really very good, our waiter Gautham made good recommendations, and we enjoyed the momos, the butter chicken and the lamb curry very much. The lamb wasnt spicy enough and Gautham was happy and even eager to bring additional lamb that was spiced to our liking. Overall, this fantastic restaurant is great value for money. The location is in a very busy stretch, so eat outside only if the hustle and bustle isn't going to bother you.

We researched online in advance of our weekend visit to Amsterdam and liked the idea of this Nepalese/Indian restaurant in a really buzzy part of central Amsterdam. So we booked online. We were not disappointed! In fact, it was so busy that we had to wait for a few moments for the table to be laid and it was a relief that we had booked as this restaurant was incredibly busy. In addition to being full of diners for the whole of our stay, food deliveries were constantly being picked up by couriers and also individual take-away customers. Having said all that, the staff couldn't have been friendlier, more welcoming or more attentive throughout our stay. We opted for the non-vegitarian, three-course set menu, which was tremendous: lovely variety of flavours, large portions and utterly delicious throughout. We were asked by the manager [who took our order] what level of heat we wanted the dishes to be, which was a great touch. It was a joy from start to finish and it was no bad thing that the walk back to our hotel was long enough to help such a splendid dinner to "settle"! Our only disappointment is that we don't live in Amsterdam, so can't visit this brilliant restaurant regularly!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
