We stayed here for lunch while passing through the town. The place was very busy. The Indian food we ordered was quite good. The service was efficient. The bill was modest.

Try the veggie momos, the Nepalese daal soup, and of course, the naan. If you are a vegetarian, there are plenty of tasty treats, which is refreshing. Perfect spot for casual dine-in or take out orders.

I don't know if he was the owner or manager, but the main guy up front was great. We walked in when it was super busy, but he did his best to get us a table as soon as he could. The rack of lamb tandoori was fabulous. The tikka masala had great flavors, but we were wanting a lot... More

Having lived here since 1985 and having enjoyed most of the Napa Valley's consistently good eateries through the years we find ourselves now most frequently returning to this little gem of a place, whether to 'eat in' or 'take away'. The "Indian" cuisine here is tasty without being overwhelming. The place is spotless, the food presentation is enchanting, the staff... More

The food here is incredibly delicious! So fresh and flavorful, served by very friendly staff, in a comfortable setting. Nicely appointed dining room. Lamb Tikka Masala is a favorite of mine. Served in a rich sauce, complex and layered flavors. Perfect basmati rice and buttered naan. Addicting.

The Himalayan Sherpa Kitchen is a fresh alternative to the restaurants up and down Rt 29. Sometimes you just are in the mood for some spicy (and mild if you like) authentic Indian food. The "sizzling Tandoori" dishes were great. The beet salad fantastic. Had lamb in tomato broth also. The Naan is a must. I think this is a... More

Small and modest which serves food from Tibet, Nepal and India . All very classical recipes and tastes delicious . Very friendly staff and prices are very reasonable. That's a very good alternative to fine dining places if you are staying couple of days.

This place was fantastic. Veggie Samosas and Chicken Tikka Marsala were excellent. Medium spice was more than enough for us. Naan bread was light and buttery. Would highly recommend this place.

I've traveled extensively in Tibet & Nepal and hold high expectations for what good Himalayan food should taste like. Too many Americanized restaurants rely on creamy/starchy toned down versions, but this place offered authentic flavors & textures with really fresh ingredients. Everything smelled as wonderful as it tasted. Lovely outdoor patio for dining al fresco.
