First meal of our trip - I had the yak curry and a Khumbu Kolsch. They asked me how hot I wanted my curry, and I said as hot as you can make it...My oh my they did not disappoint. Not only was it the hottest curry I've ever had, but still overflowing with flavor! Our waiter was on point... More

A culinary and spiritual experience. True Tibetan and Indian food served in traditional surroundings of prayer flags, Buddhas, climbing gear and colorful paintings. The food was exceptional. We had the steamed chicken momo to start and shared the Yak Vindaloo and Chicken Tikka Masala. Absolutely delicious! The garlic naan was heavenly! Spin the prayer wheels on your way in for... More

We visited twice and were more than happy each time. The food is delicious and the setting is so colorful and comfortable. Our first visit we sat inside which in August was rather hot (they have no air conditioning). On our second visit we managed to get a table outside which was fantastic with outdoor lighting, great ambience again. The... More

A beautiful place to go for an outdoor eating experience that transports you to Nepal. We ate from the buffet and I was pleased with both the vegetarian dishes and the options for meat-based dishes. Good protein choices, either way you go. The outdoor patio is SO nice, but even indoor the atmosphere is wonderful and it really does seem... More

As the title of this review says, this locale has great food from Nepal, Tibet, India, and the Sherpa Culture. It also boasts an impressive visual draw, stylized in the visage of a wonderful Sherpa's home. The owner and his family are all from the regions described, and it all feels very genuine. Now, more about the food. I ordered... More

The family-owned and run restaurant has a myriad of signature meals straight from the base of Mt. Everest. The back patio is perfect for outdoor dining as well as the intimate settings within the building. The service is impeccable and the food will have your taste buds doing jumping jacks! I highly recommend trying this place out for yourself!

Do yourself a favor and check out this restaurant in Golden. It is in an old house so the inside seating is very cozy and interesting. But, if the weather is nice, be sure to eat outside. They have build this fabulous patio with flowers, waterfalls, and a huge seating area. The food and service are fantastic as well. .

My wife and I visited Golden, Colorado for a concert at Red Rocks (awesome venue) and briefly taking in the sights of RMNP. Ended up eating at the Sherpa House Restaurant based on TA reviews. We were definitely not disappointed. We ate at a few of the higher rated Golden establishments and generally were pleased, but the Sherpa House stood... More

The restaurant does not have air conditioning, so it can get pretty HOT, especially in the tiny (bed) room we were seated in. My glass was dirty, so I had to ask for a clean one. The place can really, really use a good deep-cleaning, as it's pretty funky (especially the bathroom), which is a huge turn-off in general. We... More
