Don't be fooled by the small space. The food is great, the service is great, you're not leaving the place hungry that's for sure. Remember to book a table.

My partner and I are totally obsessed with Sherpa! In a city where the indian food standard can lack... sherpa delivers top class authentic nepalese and indian food every time! We order from here once a week and it has become our weekly staple and...we tell everyone that this is the spot to go to if you fancy a Nepalese or indian! Look forward to our one next week - big thanks from De Wittenkade!!! 🙌🙌More

Came here with a vegan friend our night in Amsterdam. The portions were very generous and delicious. We left super full and happy! We got the momos, dal, and I got a lamb curry. My friend got eggplant. The service was very friendly and personable!

So my husband was craving Indian food and I am sooooo happy we found this amazing spot. We eat Indian food often and I have to say this is by FAR THHE VERY BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. We ordered about 7 different dishes and...everything tasted amazing. You really can’t go wrong. What’s even better is how great the service is and how helpful they are. I also appreciated the owner coming out to greet us and make us feel so welcomed. I would eat here again!! Ohh and I have to add that we travel often trying Indian food all over.More

Excellent food and wonderful staff made this a terrific experience. We discovered Sherpa spontaneously, and now it is on our list of favorites. The food is delicious and plentiful, and the warmth and gracious staff made it memorable.

Absolutely outstanding Indian. Starter and main were tasty, spicy, and fulfilling. Gautam was our server and he was extremely personable and friendly. If you fancy a delicious meal and are around Leidesplein go here!! Butter chicken and Madras are beautiful.
