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.

Further Information

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.

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.

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.

Lovely food and very friendly and helpful manager. Shame about the staff who repeatedly delivered the wrong order. We ordered two dhal but got one, then two rice and one arrived and to top it, two deserts - one arrived but at least we got two spoons! We also ordered some tap water to go with our wine. The jug arrived and was taken away again. But didn't spoil the evening and love this restaurant.

The staff were very welcoming and accommodating when we were delayed. We have been before and as always the food was excellent. They do have to think about the entrance to the restaurant though as everytime the door opened there was a blast of cold air and it was uncomfortable throughout the entire evening and we could not relax and enjoy the dinner as we would have liked.

Great meal, staff we friendly but service was a little slow. We were at our table for over an hour before we received any food, tables around us seemed to get served and receive their food much quicker so I can only assume that we just arrived at the wrong time. Food was very good and made to order so we didn't mind the wait so much.
