Great Food, Friendly and Welcoming

We've had a few meals either in the restaurant or take away from Himalaya and never had a bad meal. The staff are welcoming and the service is generally better than a lot of Indian restaurants I've been to in the past.

I have been frequenting the Himalaya, sometimes alone and sometimes with my family, for a few years now and the quality of the food and service is exceptionally good. Between Lewisham and Catford, one could drive past this unprepossessing row of shops for years and hardly notice them but take the time out to have a meal at The Himalaya... More

A rather unassuming place, but very good and friendly service. We had chicken and prawn dishes in tasty sauces with some nan bread and pappadoms. The Himalaya is a fine neighbourhood restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone in the vicinity. (Visitors to Lewisham Hospital would find The Himalaya a handy place to eat.)

We have been visiting the Himalaya for over 20 years. The food is lovely, reasonably priced and the service is friendly. They will always do their best to accommodate any requests with the food if you want something special or different. You can park in the side streets nearby after 7pm. The restaurant has a lot of "regulars" (including us)... More

Excellent! The manager is friendly, staff can't help enough, and most importantly the food is great. It is very rare to have a bad Indian eating experience in my opinion and London is full of great Indian restaurants. I have marked it down on atmosphere as it is not usually busy in their as it also does take aways
