Diner Reviews
  • "Toughest piece of meat I've ever been served in my life. The garlic naan was outstanding but hardly worth going out for. Room we were seated in could have been cozy but it was too hot - in March!"

  • "The Sherpa house has authentic north Indian and Nepalese fare.where else can you order Yak. I travel to India and can vouch for the authenticity of the food. Don't show-off and order your thupka spicy, unless you can handle India spicy. Seriously. Good beer selection and inventive other drinks. Ever had adult chai? Chai with a shot of vanilla vermouth. In wamer weather, the outdoor tables are the best."

  • "Very tasty meal but way over-priced. Especially when you consider the ingredients and neighborhood. Great for a once in a while change of scenery but for the price.....there are much better options out there."

  • "I was so excited to FINALLY get to visit this spot last weekend. My high expectations were not disappointed as Sherpa House delivered on every point. The food was insanely good. Seriously. Get in here and have the Sherpa Stew."

  • "I've eaten at Sherpa House many times and usually would give it five stars. The food is great, the restaurant doubles as a Nepalese museum, so it is definitely worth a trip to see that alone. However, on this Friday evening I made a reservation earlier in the day. We still had to wait close to an hour after our reservation time for a part of four. They didn't seem to prioritize reservations over walk-ins. We won't go back on a Friday or Saturday night."

  • "Enjoyed the Nepalese decor and photos. The sizzler plates are like fajitas. I liked it but one in our party was disappointed because he did not realize that peppers and onions were the vegetables in the dish. The menu is extensive with many Indian dishes. Unfortunately I don't remember the names of all the dishes we tried but overall everyone was pleased. Owner was very friendly."

  • "My husband and I had our wedding reception at this restaurant, and find ourselves returning for dinner often. The food is absolutely wonderful, and the service is second to none. Sherpa House is easily our favorite restaurant in town, and we bring friends and family there to dine whenever they visit. Thank you, Sherpa House!"

  • "My honey likes low key celebrations, so we visited Sherpa House for Valentines day. We shared a 'Sampler' plate for two, which came with Chicken, Lamb, and Beef dishes, as well as 3 others which were new to us. The dinner came with Garlic Naan which was light and delicious. I like bread with my meal, so I'd recommend ordering one extra type of Naan to go with this meal. Having been to India a couple of years ago, I'd say this meal was very comparable and authentic to what I had there, but with the addition of meat, which enhanced all flavors. A nice glass of wine and margarita completed this delicious meal. One drink we missed out on was the Chai, which I saw multiple tables getting refills of, so I will remember that for next time."

  • "Best Indian/Nepalese food in the Denver area. Read reviews about slow service, we've only been there once but the service was excellent. We had appetizers, naan (of course) and entries, everything was excellent, right size portions, very flavorful. Food is available in mild, regular and hot, and they mean it, they get it right. We got there early and had reservations, plenty of room but it does fill up quickly. When we left, there was a line. The building is a Victorian above downtown Golden, very nice. The inside, however, is somewhat less attractive but the good news is that it's small rooms so it keeps the noise down. We're definitely going back."

  • "We ordered the Tiki Marsala with Lamb, and they brought the dish with chicken instead. Even swimming in sauce, the chicken was horribly dry. We mentioned it to the wait staff, who brought us the right dish as soon as they could. The tiki marsala with lamb in it was really good. Wish I could say the same for the Tandoori Grill combination, which came with lamb, yak and chicken. Again, the gobi desert is not as dry as their chicken is. OMG. We couldn't even eat it. The yak and lamb were good, althought sparse, and we couldn't tell the difference between the yak and the lamb. Like the beer selection, and the wine. The naan was quite good. Overall good food, just avoid the chicken at all costs"

  • "We have tried every Indian/Nepalese/Tibetan restaurant on the west side of Denver and Sherpa House is by far the best. The food is amazing. The outside deck is huge and a great place to relax and have a relaxing meal."

  • "My parents had been to Sherpa House and said it was one of the best Indian food experiences they'd ever had. We joined them here for dinner recently, anxious to enter Indian food nirvana! Our experience was less than expected. The food was plentiful, but bland. The saag was on the dry and grainy side, rather than rich and creamy. The naan was tasty, but thin and dry; it kept crumbling which made it hard to use for drenching up the last bit of sauce. The ambiance is lovely though, and the service was friendly, if a bit slow. We will likely return, but might try some other dishes. I've seen other mixed reviews, which leads me to believe that variance in chefs might be responsible for the differences in experiences others have had here."

  • "LOVE this restaurant and can't wait to go back. Golden is somewhat limited, in my opinion, as far as good restaurants but we've just found our favorite. Cozy and inviting, Sherpa House is in a beautiful old victorian high on a hill, over-looking beautiful downtown Golden, which is lit up like Wonderland during Christmas time and this spot is the perfect place to get in out of the cold and have some yummy, warm authentic Himalayan cuisine! Which if you've never had it, is very similar to Indian cuisine with dishes like vindaloo, masalas and samosas. I had the sampler plate which included THEE BEST Tikka Masala I've ever had, hands down! They have amazing noodles bowls and the house chai is delicious and never stops coming. LOVE it there!"

  • "There are few places where I can get extremely hot curry and this is one of them! My wife and I love their food and highly recommend the Sherpa House to anyone looking for a great meal at a very affordable price in Golden!"

  • "Thoroughly enjoyable in every respect. Best saag (shrimp) ever. Authentic feel to the place: wait staff, to food, to. interior decor. For summer dining, the patio is charming, secluded, and shaded - very pleasant."

  • "This was our first visit to the Sherpa House and based on other reviews we were concerned that the service might be slow. Our service was great but the food was just okay. I had the Chicken Tikka Marsala and my husband had a Yak Sizzler; unfortunately the meat in both our dishes was extremely dry and overcooked. We also had the Chicken Momo and Vegetable Samosa appetizers, the Momo was wonderful but we would't order the Samosa again. The restaurant was very busy so maybe we just picked the wrong entrees. Overall okay place and we might give it another try."
