    This place is interesting. Food was good. Options were unique. Probably would t recommend this place if you're in a hurry. Overall it was a good experience. The lamb was a bit chewy but the chicken curry was really good.

    Overall really enjoyed the meal. The chicken makhani was the star of the show. We ordered mild and it had some slight spice, but very mild. The dumplings and the sampler were good, but nothing special. Naan was delicious, both plain and stuffed.

    This is more of a 4.5 review. The beef momo and Naan were awesome. You could smell and taste the garlic in the crispy Naan, which is fairly rare. Those two items will bring me back. However, the lamb vindaloo was somewhat watery and not really spicy at all. The lamb was very nice though. The sagg paneer also has an issue with the paneer being just OK, while the spinach really came through in a nice way in the sagg. The chicken momo were fairly tasteless. Next time different entrees, same appetizers/accompaniments.

    Loved the concept and history of this place - a solid visit in Boulder, CO. Menu highlights were the noodles, paneer and saag. The veggie momos were ok, but the mojo sauce was delicious. Ask for their spicy sauce if you are into more spicy food here. I wasn’t a fan of the mango lassi and the ground flooded on account of a thunder shower (we were seated outside)

    My recent visit to Sherpa's Adventure in Boulder left much to be desired. Upon arrival, the initial greeting lacked warmth, setting the tone for what became an uncomfortable dining experience. The indifference of the staff was evident when our waiter abruptly left us at a table without ensuring a comfortable dining arrangement, dismissing our request to relocate due to a draft from the door across from the table. Despite our appetizer order already placed, the lack of accommodation was disheartening. It was only through the kind gesture of the bartender that we were able to find a more suitable seating option, a basic expectation at any dining establishment. Throughout the meal, the service continued to disappoint. Appetizers were presented without any plates, requiring us to request them after waiting for 10 mins, which sadly set the tone for the evening. The absence of a basic clearing of used plates compounded the discomfort. Such service deficiencies detracted from the enjoyment of the meal, leading us to eventually consume our entrees directly from the serving dishes as it’s honestly too embarrassing to keep asking for basic things that are usually a given. This lack of attention to service was disheartening, especially considering the rich tradition of hospitality found in Nepalese culture. Such a contrast was truly disappointing and cast a shadow over the entire experience. Regarding the food, the overall quality fell below expectations. The touted Nepalese cuisine felt lackluster and far from authentic. The chicken chunks in the tikka masala were disappointingly oversized, lacking flavor and tenderness. The Tibetan noodles failed to impress, falling short of the anticipated quality associated with such dishes but it was better than the tikka masala. However, amidst the culinary letdown, two items stood out positively. The egg drop soup offered a delightful surprise, and the stuffed naan was indeed commendable. Regrettably, the momos, considered a Nepalese staple, failed to live up to expectations, and were rather disappointing as they were chewy and flavorless. Furthermore, as an additional letdown, the staff began clearing our plates while some of the members of our party were still finishing up, a final touch underscoring the lack of consideration exhibited throughout our visit. In summary, the below-par service and lackluster representation of Nepalese cuisine at Sherpa's Adventure in Boulder overshadowed any positives experienced. The lack of proper service etiquette and food quality that deviates from the authentic Nepalese or Indian flavors indeed left a lasting impression, one that regrettably precludes any future visits. I feel no joy writing this review but I hope this review is helpful to other patrons.
