My husband and I decided to share the sampler platter and weren't told what anything was. After tasting everything, I hadn't found one thing that was yummy.

My two daughters and I went to Sherpa House Restaurant during the summer and had a fantastic meal on the outside deck area. The food was really good - especially the naan bread.

Was great when it first opened years ago but once the buffet got started it became just good. As a local I eat here fairly frequently and use the 2for1 groupon. Try something a little different.

At its best. Cute place, decorated with all things Nepalese. Lunch buffet available as well as an extensive menu. Delicious chai too. Worth a visit.

Had lunch at the Sherpa house. Buffet was fairly typical, but the quality was quite good and the house that the restaurant is in is very interesting and elaborately decorated. Worth a visit.

Ate on the patio which is private and quiet. The food was excellent. My only disappointment for this restaurant is that we tried to arrange a group dinner here and the staff was difficult to work with. Would not return calls, difficult to communicate with, so we went elsewhere.

Well I didn't know I was going to love nepalese food. I had the traditional nepalese plate that consisted of a variety of food eaten by Nepalese on a daily basis. It was so good! I'll be back.

We love to go the Sherpa House. Delicious food, many choices, spicy if you like - but not required to be spicy. Try it.

I've been to Nepal twice, and love the sense of Nepal brought back by a trip to Sherpa house. Simple dal baht is delicious- warming and satisfying. Haven't had a disappointment on anything on the menu. Vegetable thupka is tasty. If you like Indian food you'll find familiar dishes. You'll also find Tibetan and Nepali dishes. The interior is a...

Always an experience to have at least once if needed t more on a trip to Golden. I wish we had one inSan Francisco. Staff are terrific and very customer service oriented. Ambiance and food is PERFECT. Eclectic menu. Well worth checking out.

Thank KathieVee
