Our son, who lives in Burlington, loves this restaurant. It reminded me of Ayurvedic type restaurants I go to in NYC. It has great curry sauces with Naan type bread. There were lots of vegetarian options; but also some chicken ones. The flavors were wonderful. Yes, there seemed to be a long wait - one person running the whole show.... More

We waited over an hour for food that turned out not to be gluten free, despite the fact that our waitress knew our family was gluten free. She disappeared after we ordered and neglected to bring us our lassis. We weren't even served or offered water for 30 minutes after we ordered. I'm sure the food is good. Pity we... More

You really can't go wrong stopping here for lunch. Plenty of food, well prepared and simply delicious. Restaurant is clean. Service is not always quick, especially when they are busy. But it is well worth the wait.

Very casual setting on College Street. Good food. They certainly have their momo's down. When they first opened...it was sub-par, but they've come way up ! I gave them a 2nd try.....and I will return

Wanted Asian for lunch so we decided on the Sherpa Kitchen and what a treat it was. Menu was sparse but food was wonderful and all for 8.95 it was a bargain.

The lamb bind aluminum, listed as very spicy, was bland,and the lamb was tough. The eggplant dish was in a sauce indistinguishable from the lamb. All very disappointing.

We found this Nepalese/Himalayan restaurant when preparing for a trip to Burlington. I got the Veg-Thali, my wife got the non-veg thali. We choose those because it gives you a large plate with an assortment of dishes. There's a sort of mango milk that's delicious, rice pudding that is homemade and very fresh. For the rest, it feels more like... More
