    Had lunch at this restaurant during the Napa Valley Film Festival. So many Italian and California cuisine restaurants in the area serving essentially the same dishes, it was nice to have something different. Delicious Indian food and prompt, friendly service. Would dine here again.

    STAY AWAY! We are Indian food lovers. Have never been served brown rice that was cold! Too late, friends in St. Helena warned us to not eat there.

    My first time dining here and it was amazing. I have heard great reviews about this place and I'm glad the Kitchen lived up to those reviews. They have fantastic food and the service was awesome. I would definitely go back. There is a lovely outdoor seating area where you can look at downtown St. Helena. This is a good spot for a romantic evening or a night out with friends. They have a great wine list, including an $18 half bottle of Gloria Ferrer. Overall I am very pleased with my experience here and look forward to going back.

    The staff at this restaurant were very kind and patient with us as well as eager to please. The food was good, and the ambiance was much nicer than most restaurants of this type. It was a welcome break in the usual Napa Valley style of restaurants. Not many good ethnic restaurants in the area, and this was a great choice for an unpretentious meal in nice surroundings. I would gladly return when I have a craving for some tika masala, saag paneer and some delicious naan. We paid our bill and continued to sit and visit at the table and the staff were so courteous that they continued to fill our water glasses and never gave us any impression that we needed to leave. Very hospitable.

    My husband is still lamenting that we split the Rice Pudding dessert and that he didn't just get his own. The food was very tasty, but I think our favorite items were the Naan and the rice pudding!

    Found this little gem while spending a week in the Valley in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. The special that evening was a rack of lamb and lobster tail, grilled and served sizzling hot over a bed of onions, peppers and broccoli. The entire dish was masterfully seasoned and well balanced. A vibrant mix of very fresh ingredients and an obviously experienced hand at the grill. The garlic & herb naan was also a great pleasure in it's simplicity and execution. Be sure to order a mango lassi as it's freshness and coolness provided a nice counterpoint to the smoky spiciness of the main dish. We are recommending Himalayan Sherpa Kitchen to all of our friends in the Valley and those traveling there. A memorable dinner indeed!!

    The food was amazing - as always. I started with the Himalayan salad - I love the dressing. I then ordered Alu Bhanta. It has eggplant and potatoes in curry sauce. i also ordered it super spicy - which was perfect. My guy got a Chicken Tandoori (he knows Indian/Himalayan cuisine well and was able to specify it exactly to his liking). After talking to the adorable waitress, we also convinced her that we could handle the spicy. And they served it up hot! Also I am vegan - and their Naan is made without butter. The garlic Naan has basil and olive oil. We are definitely coming back.

    Found this gem when looking for a last-minute Valentine's reservation... was surprised to find the whole evening available. I think the staff was a bit surprised too when they filled-up. Service was good, but stretched thin. Apologies were made and the entire evening was pleasant. The food was excellent... we had the Valentine's special for two, and my wife even liked the lamb. My wife NEVER likes the lamb, so her "thumbs up" is high praise! Will definitely be back.

    We went here for Valentine's dinner - last minute reservation and was able to book it with no problem. The food was great & delicious - right up our alley, as we are vegetarian and the special Valentine's dinner meal allowed us to substitute the lamb for a wonderful veggie dish.Service was very prompt, friendly & courteous. Ambience very nice! Altogether very pleased & definitely want to stop in again! No need to bring our own sherpa.

    We had a large party of fourteen family members. Those whom had never eaten Himalayan were delighted. The returnees were pleased with the consistent quality. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating; we were a rambunctious group. Very reasonable corkage fees. I was pleased with dinner and would visit again when in Napa.
