Description: Sherpa Restaurant, founded in 1989 in Amsterdam, is the first Nepalese and Tibetan restaurant in the Netherlands. We also serve several signature Indian cuisines. The traditional cooking in Nepal,Tibet and India is an art. Nepalese cuisine consists of mainly curries and rice and prepared with mild spices and herbs. Similarly, Tibetan dishes consist of various Momos (dumplings) and noodles and prepared mainly with Himalayan herbs. Furthermore, Indian dishes consist of various Curries, Tandoori, Biryani, Naan and Roti. All our dishes are freshly prepared in order to offer you an authentic taste. Please don't hesitate to ask us your special choices.

A super meal, fantastic momos and the Keema naan was different class. Had the minced lamb curry, good and spicy, chicken also looked (and was reportedly) excellent.

Came here last night and the chicken was so tender and the curry delicious. Everything was freshly prepared by the kind waiters. Would happily visit again if we come back.

My wife and I were in the mood for some Indian food and found the Sherpa Restaurant. Since the restaurant is on a tourist street filled with restaurants, we were a little skeptical at first. Don't let the setting bother you...the food and service are outstanding. We ended up ordering Nepalese dishes and both were authentic (Nepalese chef!) and DELICIOUS! An English menu added to the ease of ordering, plus the waiter spent several minutes helping us with selection advice. This is definitely the place to enjoy delicious and authentic Indian/Nepalese food. We opted for the dark bread (Naan style) instead of the traditional white Naan, and it was great. The only negative was that our Heineken draft beers were not served ice cold like we prefer, but rather the more typical European slightly-cooler-than-room-temperature.

On our 1st night in Amsterdam we fancied a curry and found there was a number close together in the city centre

Sherpa looked busy from the moment we walked past and the menu was priced reasonably so we decided to visit

The menu had a huge selection on offer which made deciding between the familiar and and the new tough

I decided to go for Aloo Chili for starter - a hot spicy potato based dish which from the waiters question after the 1st course is something that surprises people with it's spice. I normally go for mild dishes but 100% would try this again

For main I went for medium vegetable curry. A dish I often have at home and this dish didn't disappoint

With a chapati for a side I was suitably stuff as all good curry houses should leave you

With fantastic service on top we tipped and left

A fantastic choice for a curry in Amsterdam

I had missed Naan so much so that's what I ordered for and chicken. Requested it to be spicy/ hot and it came out perfect. I would definitely recommend it.
