Two of us had vegetarian dinners tonight at this Nepalese/Indian/Tibetan cuisine restaurant and we were delighted with our selections. Amazingly attentive service and large portions. It was so kind of the staff to answer our questions about the type of beans included in the Nepalese...More

The portions were big, but the food itself was very dissapoiting. The price does not correspond to the quality. Services were good. Overall, would not recommend going there.

We visited on a Wednesday evening, on our first night in Amsterdam. Usually we choose ‘off the beaten path’ eateries and avoid touristy areas. We were really pleased with our visit, as we got the small, ‘off the beaten path’ feel but very close to...More

What a lovely find! The venue doesn’t look like it will deliver amazing food, but my word it was amazing! From start to finish every mouthful was a flavour explosion! One of the best meals ever eaten. Don’t miss it!

really good food and even good for people who can't eat spicy food. Make a reservation, because otherwise you have to leave hungry !

Last visited 4 years ago and was delighted to find it even better this time. Had Nepalese lamb and spinach (with a little dish of extra spice to add as required). Great taste and a generous helping. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Looking forward...More

Excellent food and service. We had the Briyani and Tikka Masala and both were fantastic! Cozy restaurant, clean and friendly, and best Indian food we’ve had in a long time.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Hi Tinu The Sherpa restaurant is located in a side street within a few meters of the Leidseplein which is very central. It is a small but superb Indian restaurant that also serves Tibetan and Nepalese specialities. Staff... More
