Parked in downtown Golden, Colorado. We walked up the hill to the Sherpa house where we discovered a charming building and welcoming staff. The buffet was extensive and menu item portions were quite large. We took home leftovers. There was both inside and outside dining available. In addition the menu provided an in depth history of the owner and the... More

A great place to bring the kids, they had lots to look at, with the Everest expedition mementos, and various Buddhist and Tibetan artifacts. The service was prompt and friendly, and the food was well-priced and delicious. A nice selection offered. Go early on a weekend night.

Will be back! We moved from Omaha Ne and loved a place called Mother India. This can now be our home away from home. It's a beautiful atmosphere too. Highly recommend coming on a Sunday for the buffet!

This is a unique food that will not appeal to everyone (as it did not in our group) but it is fresh and well prepared. Read the menu closely before you go to make sure it is the type of food you would like to try. The setting is an old house which is very cool. Service was very good.

It is not just a restaurant. It is a cultural experience. Beautiful building, each room has historical interest and is a shrine to Nepal. The entry and outdoor patio/garden area have artifacts and lovely landscaping. The food has Indian flavors, lots to choose from and craft beer and chai. One of my favorites here in Golden.

Wow, heard about this place on a restaurant show and tried it. What a find. The food and service are excellent and the cultural experience is top notch. They really work hard to promote the Himalayan mountain culture thru pictures, decoration, and food. The only thing missing is the t-shirt & jeans clad waiters. Traditional dress would complete the setting,... More

We are so glad to have discovered Sherpa House. The service and patio are so pleasant, with a menu that satisfies both curious and cautious diners. We like to take visitors from out of town because the dining is so different from run-of-the-mill restaurants. We much prefer the full menu to buffet. The appetizer platter is a must-do, esp if...

Lunch buffet, until 2:30, is terrific. Nepalese, Indian food. Quite good, inexpensive, and the patio was pretty full. Top of the hill on Washington
