Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First time in this part or Ireland and the restaurant was recommended. Truly not disappointed. We both had Nepalese Curry! OMG absolutely stunning. We loved detail to attention, including the chef making an appearance to check all was fine with dinner. We would return, but...expensive.More

Taking an Airbnb in Buncrana, we were looking to find an Indian. We were not expecting much. Such a surprise, this place is excellent. Really friendly staff, excellent food to our taste. It is a little special, so maybe not everyone will agree. Also special...word for Katiya, one of the waiters from Ukraine who made us feel so welcome. Our impression is that the food quality when eating in is much better than their takeaway food. Try the Nepalese dishes - my favourite - Gorkhali - distinctive. Book in advance especially at weekends. This restaurant is fairly small.More

6 of us travelling from Glasgow showed up without a booking, the staff were extremely kind and gave us a big table. We all had a different curry and naan, the food was delicious, cooked and presented well. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the...waiters are at hand. The chef came over towards the end to ensure we enjoyed our meals.. nice touch. We will defo be back and recommend this to anyone travelling to Buncrana or surrounding areas. Thank you 😊More

Without doubt the most prolific Indian chef I have come across. Such freshness, the herbs, meat and vegetables - absolutely delicious. Cannot wait to come back.

Service was veery slow. Big surprise was in every indian restaurant podiums and sauces are complimentary..... Well not in serpa...they now charge €3.50 for 2 podiums and 3 tsp on dips..was told the mango sauce takes a long time to make so they had to...charge.... The ice cream in the early bird was awful...after 15min wait..chips are ususlly lovely,but my experience this time was chips were not in fresh oil , tastes fishy and my husband curry didt taste the curry he expected... Really unhappy with experience.... Asked couple in the bar afterwards noticed they got podiums.....did they get complimentary???.they were shocked to have to pay €3 50..... 2 podiums .....1 tsp each of a sauce...... When u come into a reastaurant you are meant to be felt welcome and wined and dined....we felt like get in .....and out.... No ambience... Credit due to one male member of staff.wish he dealt with us....he was very observant. He cleaned alll the tables and chairs...very kind man...the lady was very slow but they did look under staffed for the crowd. .. Ps...No Indian reastaurant EVER charges €3 50 for complimentary podiums and 3 tiny dips My experience as a local annoyed... But talking to locals this past week they are getting the same vibes and not liking the serpa experience...More

I eat take away from here every month while on business. I usual have a starter and a mains. However tonight I just wanted a mains. @€13.95 they would not take my card as a minimum spend of €15 is required. On principle I cancelled...my order. I get take away coffee for €2.80 on my card.

What a fantastic restaurant in the middle of Buncrana. We were treated like kings and queens. The staff was extremely friendly and always available. Now to the food. I have been eating in many Indian restaurants as well as Nepalese restaurants. Sherpa has been by...far the best I’ve been to. The Pakora perfectly cooked. The Dumplings and Chicken Wings are finger licking good. The Butter Chicken ….. I don’t even have words for it. Simply delicious.More
