Pleasantly surprising tasty food.

Very tasty food, pleasant staff. Service was a bit slow. Not very inviting from outside, but worth visiting. A bit cramped if busy.

We tend to visit Babbacombe once a year and a visit to the Himalaya for an evening meal is always one of the highlights. This year we weren't disappointed. We arrived around 6pm on a Wednesday evening and were offered a choice of tables (although booking is advisable on more popular nights). Orders for poppadoms and drinks (large bottles of... More

I left Himalaya couples of weeks ago. I worked there for long time. It's a great place for work. Owner Bhakta & Mary are lovely. I miss all of them at Himalaya

Absolutely worth a visit any time! Consistently good quality food featuring Nepalese specialities. The restaurant is a little dark and could do with moderating, but do not be put off by this. The food is special!

Excellent delicious food, great service and very reasonably priced. Nice ambiance too. Walking distance from The Morningside Hotel.

Have used the himalaya for takeaways several times but decided to eat in one evening. Wish we hadn't bothered. The staff seem really miserable. Not a very welcoming place at all. Would not go back here

I have eaten at this restaurant on a few occasions and enjoyed a take-away on several more. The food has always been tasty and (most importantly) of a consistent standard. The restaurant itself is small but not cramped. The decor is tasteful and the atmosphere is nice. Parking is free and easy right outside. The menu is extensive and the... More

Our drinks took an age to arrive and we actually had to ask twice for them. One starter was served and the other arrived 5 minutes later. We waited over 30 minutes for our main meals and had to ask again where they were. The food was ok, nothing to write home about, just ok.

I phoned a few days before to book a table for 2 at 7.30 last Saturday night and was told that this would be fine, after arriving in a taxi another couple arrived a few minutes before us and sat down, we were told by the waiter / manager that we did not have a table, after a few discussions...

More water than flavour! Good meat ratio! Overall taste poor! Would recommend an avoidance if you like your butter chicken creamy or lamb sagg to taste of something more than h2o
