Description: Namaste! Welcome to Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant & Bar! Proudly serving Boulder since 2002, we offer a unique combination of authentic Nepali, Tibetan, and Indian cuisine in a family friendly atmosphere. As the name implies, we are genuine Sherpas from the Himalaya aiming to bring a little of Nepal and Tibet to Boulder. All of our food is true to authentic family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. We make our meals to order, including fresh breads, sauces, and desserts. Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant & Bar features an authentic, charcoal-fired Tandoor clay oven for heart-healthy, low-fat meals. You can taste the authenticity and quality in our famous Chicken Tikka Masala and homemade Tibetan dumplings, stuffed with Himalayan spices. In addition to our delicious food, we offer a truly unique Traveler's Library & Lounge with plenty of books to help get you started planning your next adventure! Feel free to peruse the displayed Sherpa history and photos, explore our expedition, trekking, and volunteer trip booking opportunities, and look over our list of guest speakers. We hope Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant & Bar provides all we intend it to - good food, cold beer, a little inspiration, a little education, and an escape to the Himalayas - all without leaving the shadow of the Flat Irons.

You rarely hear "good value" and "Boulder" in the same sentence when describing a restaurant. We ate at Sherpa's tonight for the first time. The seating areas, whether inside or out, offer excellent ambiance, with the interior decorated with pictures from the Himalayas, and the outside perfect for a summer evening meal. We had 2 appetizers which were very well priced (the bread at $2.50 was a bargain), and an entree apiece. The entrees were good, maybe not great ethnic food, but you couldn't beat the price. Their beer and wine was very reasonable (I thought the draft beer was another bargain). The service was a bit rushed, but friendly. Overall, we thought it was an excellent dining experience and wouldn't hesitate to return. An added bonus is that one of the chefs has scaled Everest multiple times.

Recently ate lunch here and loved it! Their lunch special is the best bargain in Boulder. The atmosphere is great, as is the food and service. Will return next trip for dinner.

The outdoor garden setting truly makes a dinner (or lunch) at Sherpa's a great experience. The food is very good, with the Saag Panir getting top honors. The Veg member of our group had lots of options on the menu. As noted by another TA reviewer : Indian food + Fat Tire + outdoor garden = a great meal experience. Dinner for 7 with beers was about $100.

THere are many himalayan restaurants in boulder/denver oweing to the close relationship between these mountaineering regions. The food is always good, but not great, and the service is fair to good. That said, its worth doing to taste the interesting spices and load up the always excellent Chai. This os probably your best bet for tibetan food in Boulder, and the restaurant, in an old house, is charming.

Don't be in a hurry cuz life should be taken slowly while sipping a cold beer, watching the sun set from a lovely courtyard. The food was simple, exotic and delicious. Highly recommend visiting.
