    Everything here is fantastic. I usually get the eggplant and potato or the salmon and eggplant curry with garlic basil naan. Service is fast and food comes and goes before you know it! Decently priced. Plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.

    This is such a little gem in St Helena. I chose it blindly as the name caught my eye and wanted to try something new and different. My friends and I were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. We were not too familiar with the Himalayan traditional food but our waiter made some excellent recommendations and we absolutely loved every dish we were served. We will be back ASAP.

    Love this place. We have now eaten there twice. Small restaurant in St. Helena. Nice break from the Napa cuisine. Food is well prepared and spiced. If you order it spicy it is actually spicy. Had the garlic shrimp salad. 4 nicely grilled u-15 size shrimp with lettuce and dressing. Lukshya Ra Phing for my entree, this is a lamb curry with glass noodles. We will absolutely go back every time we are in Napa.

    This was a very nice surprise! We came in with a party if 20 which I had booked long in advance. None of us had ever had Nepalese food before. It was great! The restaurant satisfied kids, vegetarians, picky eaters, and non-adventurous eaters. Everyone was happy and full! Service was great in accommodating our big party! Will return.

    Dined here with 2 girlfriends prior to catching a play up the road, so we were on a schedule. Service was prompt, helpful and efficient. One of us is a vegan, who was easily accommodated by putting cheese on the side for the beet salad. Shared plates of cauliflower and eggplant curry were flavorful and appropriately spicy (we asked for "hot"). Pakora and Samosa appetizers were particularly enjoyable with wonderful dipping sauces.

    Oh my gosh - why have I not been here before. This place is super delish! We started with the lamb momo dumplings and our waiter brought us a spicy version of the tomato sauce since we ordered a spicy curry. The dumplings were amazing and so was the curry and naan- we got the one with chicken and eggplant. The chicken tikki masala was hard to pass up but we were so happy with our choice. We also got some delicious imports!

    I ordered the chicken tikka masala and was told that "medium" spicy was very spicy, so the waitress recommended I go for "mild plus" if I wanted a little spice. It was still very spicy, and I overheard a woman at another table say the same about her "mild plus." Aside from the spice, the sauce was not all that good either. I've had much better. The service was okay. We sat outside and it was a nice night, but the neighboring Italian restaurant was blaring their inappropriate music. I don't like to dine to Madonna and Lady Gaga. Napa Valley has many great restaurants, but this is not one of them.

    We love Indian and related Nepalese/Himalayan food but we were terribly disappointed in Sherpa's. The appetizer plate consisted of potato, onions and panir batter and deep fried, all tasteless, two momos and one samosa, passable but not great. Our Chicken Tikka Masala was the worst we have ever had - no discernible Indian spices. We sat outdoors and a perfect evening on a quiet downtown street with a view of the Front Range. So disappointing that the food is such a downer.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants. This was our third time dining here and it was just as fabulous as the first two times. Every dish has been great, the wine list is awesome and the service is impeccable. The owner is very nice and is always on the floor meeting and assisting diners. Perfect place for a romantic evening or a night out with family/friends. I highly recommend to anyone who is interested in trying Himalayan food that they visit the Himalayan Sherpa Kitchen!

    This is our new favorite spot! Especially for a local looking for something besides the expensive, Napa Valley fare, unpretentious and easy to get reservations. The tandoori dishes are wonderful, especially the chicken pieces: juicy! Momos are similar to a steamed dumpling, delicious with the extra spicy sauce. Curries are very tasty and not overly spiced, so my husband did not get his usual heartburn [as with many Indian dishes]. One of the owners oversees ordering and serving and is happy to answer questions or guide you in selections. It was perfect to order 3 different dishes and share between 2 hungry people. The wine list has just enough variety to please anyone and the prices are exceedingly fair. We plan to make dining at Himalayan Sherpa Kitchen a regular event.

    We had some out of town friends visiting and wanted to try something new. I suggested Himalayan and they were eager to try it. Reservation for 8 was not a problem (Monday night) and was ready when we arrived. Nima (owner) answered our questions and took our orders with a informative and jovial attitude. I ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala and was quite pleased. I also noticed when the food came out, conversations died down considerably and replaced by smacking of food. Everyone enjoyed their food but had no room for dessert. But next time, cuz we'll be back!

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.

    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!!
