    I had a reservation forgotten about, so we had to wait. Tibetan cuisine largely reinterpreted in an Indian style. Not bad, but not to my liking.

    Great restaurant with a large choice of Nepalese dishes. The momo’s (dumplings) were amazing, especially the chicken and vegetarian ones, and the other dishes we ordered were also delicious. Friendly and helpful staff too!

    It was too crowded the first time we ate here, so had to come back and it was well worth the wait. The food was delicious, and the service was so attentive and friendly. The momo was outstanding. Highly recommend!!

    My parents and me had a wonderful dinner in great atmospere. The waiter helped us with choosing our meals and the chef adjusted the spicyness of the food according to our wishes. The staff is very friendly and open for a small chat, even when it's busy. Thank you Sherpa Restaurant for letting us enjoy the delicous food of Nepal!

    The chicken momos were delicious. The Khasi ko Masu and the Kukhura ko Masu were both very good. The service was friendly and fast. It is one of our favorite Amsterdam restaurants.

    Sherpa was a foodies delicious delight! We shared fabulous hot tomato soup and lentil soup as starters on a cold rainy evening, followed by spicy chicken tiki masala and a saucy Himalayan lamb paprika..... served with basmati rice. A nice Himalayan beer was our choice of beverage. Great service, welcoming atmosphere.... cozy.

    Great food and service. This was my third visit. We ordered a few starters to share which were delicious. Would recommend booking as they get quite busy.
