About the restaurant Sherpa

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. Are you a fan of Dal-Bhat and MOMO? Or, would you like to explore the Nepalese, Tibetan and Indian cuisines? You are always heartily welcome at Restaurant Sherpa.

The Sherpa in Amsterdam serves generous portions of tasty Indian and Nepalese food. Everything we had was well prepared and the sauces were amazing, with an excellent blend of spices.

Really delicious food! The service could be better, since they delayed seating us, and also taking our food order. Overall, a positive experience

Welcoming space with friendly, thoughtful staff. Two clocks on the back wall show Amsterdam and Kathmandu time. The food is a testament to the wonderful flavors of Nepalese, Tibetan and Indian cuisine. Everything we ordered was delicious. Nice selection of wine and Indian beer. Highly recommended

Staff were friendly and fast. The indian food was excellent. Fluffy Crispy nan bread and fragrant curries. Quite a small restaurant so not so great for large groups. Would enjoy a better explanation of the Nepalese food on the menu as we were unfamiliar with the dishes.

food is great for me, i am satisfied with all dishes, but we didnt have enough time to finish and rest, and then 'sent to leave' because they have another reservation for the table, after hearing we dont want any desert.

The Sherpa has some of the best Nepalese food we have ever enjoyed, in any city. I even got tips on my trip to Kathmandu!

We had a great dinner experience at Sherpa! Staff was incredibly nice, telling stories of Nepal and turning my boyfriend’s birthday into a very special one with a lovely dessert. Thank you! We will definitely be back!
