Took a bunch of years visiting CB before Sherpa Cafe got promoted to my go-to list. Food yummy. Great prices. Leftovers likely - chow mein reheats nicely.

We had a wonderful meal at the Sherpa. I took my family-even a 2 year old- there while on a business trip. It was in town, delicious and very affordable. I am anxious to go again on my next visit.

We travel to Crested Butte quite often and go to the Sherpa each time. You are greeted by one of most welcoming smile from a Tibetan lady. And the food is great and very reasonably priced. Try the Saag chicken with the garlic nan. MMMMM!

This place never disappoints. We love their fired pakoda, curries, and Saag Paneer. Also, the staff are all very calm and kind. We would highly recommend this spot!

We are soooo sorry that you had to wait for your order and you got sick (we've never had anyone get sick before). Yesterday we were overwhelmed by customers suddenly coming in all at one time. Since we are a small family operation, we only...More

I was surprised to find such an excellent Asian restaurant in a town of this size. We arrived close to closing time, but the staff did not rush us. The serving sizes were generous and each dish delicious, with amazing flavors. The prices were excellent....More
