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.

For the rest, it feels more like... More

We encountered friendly but slow service, perhaps because we were late evening patrons. The fare was reasonably priced and very flavorful and the portions were good. However, the name of the establishment was more suggestive, than the lesser Hymalayan experience we had. What distinguished this eatery from other basic Indian restaurants?

The lunch special ($9!) was so inexpensive, and it included a drink (non-alcoholic), a small appetizer and a meal. The lamb was good but could have been spicier. The chicken tikka was terrific....
