“A gourmet feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

What a treat with personal service. We savored every item ordered and ate on even though full. I am searching for a recipe for saag after loving it here. The curry was delicate and beautifully spiced. We are returning today for another experience before leaving the area. Sample this restaurant and treat yourself!

“Sweet little respite and great Nepali food in Gunnison”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The owner of this restaurant also has one in Crested Butte. Hard not to like the curry, korma and vindaloo. The samosas are also a favorite. Service is friendly and prices are moderate. Great naan freshly made. Try it out. One of the better eating options in Gunnison.

“An Amazing Culinary Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I would recommend Sherpa to anyone who wants to tantalize their taste buds! I'm from a good size city and have experienced wonderful Indian food many times, but have never had what Sherpa calls Himalayan cuisine--it's amazing. The owner is from Napal and has created dishes that made our evening a true culinary delight. The Saag melts in your mouth and the Sherpa Rolls are to die for. I can't leave out the wonderful, various curries and the veggie momo (a Tibetan dish) which was a fantastic new experience. We left with huge smiles on our faces! (Did I mention that one of our group is a true foodie and was so impressed with the meal she spent a significant amount of time discussing dishes with the owner, Pemba?)

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Served cup of soup as soon as you sit down to get you started. Lots of vegetarian dishes and can add tofu although many meat dishes too or can have meat added. Large sized portions. Excellent, quick service. Seasoning very mild but can get it seasoned hotter if you want. Excellent food--loved it!
