Hello Kittens and Gents,
I wanted to write up a restaurant review on the Sherpa House Restaurant and Cultural Center in Golden, Colorado. My husband and I went there for our 3 year anniversary and had a wonderful time. We’d driven past it many times on our way to go tubing along Clear Creek, and I always wanted to go for a visit. My husband surprised me with a reservation and we headed up the hill to celebrate ourselves and live a little. We respected all Covid-19 restrictions during our trip, so not to fret, my darlings! We were very safe on our trip.
What first attracted me to Sherpa House was the decor of the building. It’s quite striking, and the longer you look at it, the more you see. The facility is beautifully decorated with gardens and authentic Himalyan cultural artifacts. It was designed to represent a typical home in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal.

The scenery where we sat was eye-catching, yet tranquil. We listened to the gentle gurgle of a water feature nearby, while a tiny chirping bird hopped delightfully around the bamboo plants growing behind us.
The staff recommended that we try the Sherpa House Sampler. It includes such delicious dishes as: Saag Paneer, Aalu (Aloo) Gobi, Chana Masala, brown or white rice, Daal, and Naan or Kheer. There is so much more to eat and enjoy, so feel free to explore their menu for yourselves. Every last bite was delicious and we were grateful not only for the suggestion, but for the wonderful service we received by their staff.
If you know me, you’ll know I love beer. If you don’t, you just learned something new about me! Sherpa House is not only a restaurant and cultural center, but also a brewery. I tried their beer, which is literally brewed by sherpas. It was a light and easy to drink beer. I would highly recommend it.
If you want to learn more about this important culture, they do offer onsite tours, but in light of the current pandemic situation, we decided to decline for now, and to explore for ourselves. The last thing we saw before we left was the intricate prayer wheel. We both got a chance to read a brief write-up describing the purpose of it before indulging ourselves in a little ringing.
