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.

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

Had looked forward to trying this place out, so ordered a takeaway on Saturday evening. We were extremely disappointed with the food - let me describe it: the chicken tikka masala was in a gloopy luminous orange sauce and tasted SWEET. That was in capitals as it was so surprising and so inappropriate. The other dish was in a gloopy... More

Good job we booked as it was full on saturday. Our party of six all chose something different and shared side dishes. Everything was excellent we were all happy with our choices. Staff and service very good. Hot here is not over hot unless you ask for it.

Tried to get a table on a Saturday evening without booking and had no chance (which has to say something about the popularity of this restaurant). They said that the Sunday would be fine without booking so went back and, although there were a good few customers in, there were tables available and more importantly the food was spot on.... More

...well, there a certainly some mixed reviews for this restaurant. All we can say is that the food we ordered was very tasty, obviously being made to a high standard. The Chicken Peshwari (thanks Quirk) was maybe a little too sweet for our taste buds but happened to compliment the Lamb Balti that we also ordered (my Wife & I... More

Ordered our takeaway for collection at 6pm. (shock horror) it wasn't ready when I arrived at 5 to 6. I waited with several others for about a whole 5-10 mins. I ordered butter chicken, chicken tikka with just the one rice (as two would be far too much) with some greedy extras. The only compliant would be from the dog... More

Six of us went for a meal at the beginning of December at the Himalya Restaurant. I was very excited about going, as I had heard such good comments about the place ....... I left very disappointed! The service was very poor and the staff extremely rude. A friend who is vegetarian asked if they did a vegetarian pasanda, the... More
