About Sherpa Kitchen

Dear diners, please be aware that if you would like to use a third party voucher in conjunction with your booking, please contact the restaurant directly.

It’s a very easy hike to Sherpa Kitchen’s High Street Esher premises, and well worth the burn for some of Surrey’s most curious cuisine. The food on offer here is nutritious, novel Nepalese, centred on staples like daal and bhat (lentils and rice), deliciously savoury chutneys, and main meals that make the most of precisely balanced herbs and spices hand-ground in a khal (a stone mortar). A must for any adventurous foodie, and especially fans of subcontinental Asian food.

More about Sherpa Kitchen, London

A standout in Surrey, Sherpa Kitchen is passionate about promoting Nepalese culture and culinary practice. with a master chef overseeing the preparation of what is certainly a lesser-known cuisine, despite Nepal’s proximity to India, Pakistan, and China, whose cuisines we know all too well. With Sherpa Kitchen sitting proud among the cluster of eateries down Esher’s High Street (easily spotted opposite Waitrose), fans of Asian food are blessed with a truly unique and stylishly appointed restaurant experience. Book a table, take a seat, crack open a bottle of Nepalese Khukuri beer and prepare to conquer an unforgettable meal.

Sherpa Kitchen has occupied the same premises down Esher’s High Street for over a dozen years, and is set to ride a new wave of interest in less well-travelled Asian cuisines. Fans of Indian, Pakistani, and even Chinese cuisine are flocking to one of Surrey’s most unique restaurants to experience the unique flavours of this Himalayan nation. If you want a dish that’s traditionally Nepali in the extreme, opt for the mooli chicken, combining tender chicken and mooli (daikon radish) in a delicious, hearty stew. Sherpa Kitchen’s signature dish is khasi tang, slow-cooked pork knuckle with chickpeas, while the lighter chicken dahi simmers chicken in a spice and curry leaf infused yoghurt sauce and mayalu lamb adds smoked honey to a nutty, creamy sauce for an ultimately delicate dish. It’s all deeply reminiscent of the high-altitude, mountainous region from which these dishes hark – what keeps Napal’s famous sherpas and ghurkas going through the long days. Book a table and begin your expedition.

The December evening was particularly cold so the warm atmosphere that greeted us as we entered the Sherpa Kitchen was a delight. As usual at the food was excellent. No more free popadums now so we ordered some anyway and a main course of three dishes, rice and naan bread is plenty for my wife and me. All served on crisp white linen.

As always tremendous food, very good service and a great welcome. Not your usual Indian menu so something for everyone. One of Esher's best restaurants.

First time visitor, what a fabulous restaurant, super friendly staff, never had Nepalese food before and the waiter suggested we change our choice of dishes as two were too similar, great decision. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Excellent food and good service at reasonable prices. Parking is available nearby. A very pleasant change from the average "Indian" restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal 🍴

We have been to the Sherpa Kitchen a few times and every time the food has been lovely, a varied menu with something for everyone. The quality and flavour of everything we've had has been excellent. If you've not had Nepalese yet or you just fancy a change you must try the Sherpa Kitchen.

Excellent dinner at the Sherpa Kitchen with wonderful cuisine and first-class staff. The manager recommended a selection of Nepali dishes which were specially prepared for our table. Booking was essential as the restaurant was full which demonstrates the popularity of the Sherpa Kitchen. We will certainly be returning.

This was my first experience at Sherpa Kitchen and I was very impressed. I have coeliac disease and they were extremely accommodating. The Nepalese cuisine was deliciously flavoured without being overly hot and spicy and the staff were delightful. Also, the prices are very competitive. We will be back soon.

I've been to Sherpa Kitchen several times in the past. The food is always excellent and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, and I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone after something a bit different

My husband and myself visited Sherpa Kitchen on Friday 13th May 2016. As always we thoroughly enjoyed Mr Om's hospitality, the service is excellent. The food is always well served along with good choices of wines available.
