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.
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.
Delicious food with excellent service. To be recommended even on a hot evening. Restaurant was cool and the food was superb. Always have a great meal.
Staff extremely attentive without being pushy. All 6 of us really enjoyed our meal and the side dishes that we shared. I have been to Sherpa Kitchen several times before but all of my colleagues who came with me yesterday agreed that they would visit again. Thank you for an enjoyable experience.
We really enjoyed our evening at the Sherpa Kitchen. The food was so delicious, beautifully presented and served in an efficient but relaxed manner. Staff we so friendly and helpful. Whilst they were super attentive, at no point did we feel rushed. We will definitely be back soon.
