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.

When meals from Nepal are done right they are good for the body and the mind. Dinner at the Sherpa is good for the soul.

We were on a 2 week long Europe tour and towards the end we were craving for Indian food. This place did not disappoint. My son said that the chicken makhani was amazing. I liked the samosa, dal makhni and especially loved the methi paratha.
