The Sherpa House is not only a eating experience, but a cultural experience. After walking in, you are enter a foreign land of beautiful artifacts, breath taking art, and hundreds of things to gaze upon. We came for lunch and sat outside in the back which was beautiful and peaceful. They have a lunch buffet which was delicious, and the... More

Very interesting place, worth the detour. It felt like being transported to Nepal. Tons of cultural information and artifacts, and beautiful grounds. We went during lunch, so had the buffet. Some dishes simliar to Indian food I have had. Very good food, and cool experience.

We can't say enough about Sherpa House! My wife and I frequently visit the Sherpa House and highly recommend the lunch buffet it is your first time. The lunch buffet has a great selection of food so you can try various foods to see what you like.

I had no idea what to expect, and this place was great. Fun decor and good food. We had the appetizer that is calleld vegetable samosa, and it was so very delicious. It was like a huge won-ton, but with a soft outer pastry and filled with potatoes, spinach, and peas. I could have eaten 2 or 3 of those... More

So I was studying at CSM when Sherpa House opened. I was there in opening night. It became a staple in my Golden diet. Fast Forward 5 years and a global career - friends in Nepal and I'm back. Can't believe how well established this has become. I am not a buffet fan and would normally come for dinner only... More

Famil yate there for first time last week. The food was verey nice, the outdoor seating was great (weahter was perfect), and service was good. Had read where service can be spotty. I think I understand why as servers are from Nepal and doing cultural exchanges. Overall had no complaints, but don't expect high end service, go with it and... More
