If you want to try a Nepalese food you don't need to go to Nepal. Simply pop in Himalaya and you won't be disappointed. Been there once and after a visit ordered few times for delivery because food is just delicious. Full of taste and always fresh. (Seriously I don't know where are all those bad reviews from). My favourite... More

The food was excellent, top quality and the service was very good. Sometimes the service was a little slow which is understandable as there is only 2 people working in the restaurant area. The aesthetic was very well done. Looks professional. Overall a very good visit

Tried the Nepalese Chilli Chicken and it was divine! A creamy Saag Panir and traditional Black Dahl - all the dishes were fantastic. Naan was also thin and delicious! Shame we are not local!!

We have been going to The Himalaya for many years and the food and service are both excellent. The Nepalese dishes including the garlic lamb are quite outstanding. Would strongly recommend.

We have been using the Himalaya for 3 years now and were very worried it had changed for the worse. But no panic, food was extremely good as always, and the new owner Go pal was there to ensure we were looked after.Please give these lovely people a chance, the teething problems are over now, we will definitely be back.

Food was fantastic!!! To find such a variety of flavour, quality food and service, you'd need to visit Nepal itself!!!!

Been here couple of times before and the food always used to be fantastic. However this time I visited with my friends and really dissapointed. The quality of food is completely dropped, service was terrible, no politeness with staff and very slow service. Food was not hot, Naan bread was not properly cooked and cold. It seems the Chef has... More

Have dined here many times before with my partner and the food always used to be lovely... However, we had a take away this evening which was disgusting. Firstly we ordered and paid for poppadoms, which we never received. Secondly, we both had 'chicken ceylon'- the ceylon sauce is supposed to be 'hot and sweet'.... What we had was completely... More

This was my and my husband's first visit to the Himalaya Restaurant. It certainly lived up to the good reviews. Nice freshly cooked dishes, huge on flavour and nicely priced too. Very easy to over order as the portions are ample. Some people have a problem with waiting a short while for their food but we prefer a short wait... More
