We really enjoyed the fact that the decoration and layout of the restaurant makes you feel that you're in a living room. The food selection is huge (Himalayan, Nepalese, Indian, etc) and the everything very fresh. We loved it and we will come back when we're in the area :)

The courtyard/patio is an oasis of calm within a few blocks of the Pearl St. Mall. Every dish I have ordered at Sherpa's has surpassed my expectations in terms of taste. They make the best Naan bread in Colorado! Be sure to check out the Mountaineering memorabilia in the bar and restaurant, fascinating!

Our group of 12, including 4 children ages 1-4, celebrated my husband's birthday at Sherpa's this weekend. Lovely people, gracious service for our large, at times noisy group, a beautiful decor & wonderful food that was very affordable! They even allowed us to bring our own birthday cake! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience, we will be back👍

Definitely worth a try. If you like experiencing new things, I do recommend Sherpa's. The Nann is fantastic. The atmosphere is cramped and dated but it doesn't bother me much.

We had a great lunch at Sherpa's while visiting Boulder. The food was very authentic and quite tasty! Loved the decor with lots of photos and interesting decorations from Nepal and Tibet. Look forward to returning!

We went here on a bitter cold wintry night to get some warming food. Pappadums come for free on the table. We got a spinach dip (saag) with naan to start the meal - the naan is good, saag was kind of bland. Momos platter and a chicken curry for main dishes. The momos are pretty good, I like the... More

The food and the service were outstanding for the whole family, from grandparents down to the two-year-old. If you have time to take in the decor, you will learn about the history of the Sherpas, whose assistance is essential to climbers who hope to conquer Mt. Everest.

Having travelled in Nepal & Tibet, I can honestly say that this place serves up traditional foods in truly fine fashion. Lots of Indian favorites on the menu too, but the real treasures are the ones you can't really get elsewhere. Momos (Tibetan dumplings) are especially good, and are served here as a sampler plate. Thukpa (noodle bowl) is also... More

This is in my opinion the best Indian restaurant in Boulder and has a great selection of traditional Indian/Nepalese dishes at fairly good prices. I've tried it multiple times for both lunch and dinner and it never disappoints. Superfriendly staff too!

Namaste! Welcome to Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant & Bar! Proudly serving Boulder since 2002, we offer a unique combination of authentic Nepali, Tibetan, and Indian cuisine in a family friendly atmosphere. As the name implies, we are genuine Sherpas from the Himalaya aiming to bring a little of Nepal and Tibet to Boulder. All of our food is true to authentic family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. We make our meals to order, including fresh breads, sauces, and desserts. Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant & Bar features an authentic, charcoal-fired Tandoor clay oven for heart-healthy, low-fat meals. You can taste the authenticity and quality in our famous Chicken Tikka Masala and homemade Tibetan dumplings, stuffed with Himalayan spices. In addition to our delicious food, we offer a truly unique Traveler's Library & Lounge with plenty of books to help get you started planning your next adventure! Feel free to peruse the displayed Sherpa history and photos, explore our expedition, trekking, and volunteer trip booking opportunities, and look over our list of guest speakers. We hope Sherpa's Adventure Restaurant & Bar provides all we intend it to - good food, cold beer, a little inspiration, a little education, and an escape to the Himalayas - all without leaving the shadow of the Flat Irons.
