We bought a Groupon deal for 20 € that included a tasting menu for 2. The normal price of the menu was around 40 €, I think. We ordered chicken and vegetarian dishes, and unfortunately the food was a big disappointment. The food was bland and tasteless. The service was OK. According to this experience, I wouldn't recommend this place... More

I was staying at the Hilton Strand and was recommended this restaurant by the hotel concierge. The restaurant is directly behind the hotel. Small, simply decorated, modest, great service and absolutely superb food. It was also not so expensive. I have never had Nepalese food but am now hooked. I would recommend it without any reservation.

The food in Himshikhar has always been good and affordable. The location of the restaurant is not so nice and the interior of the restaurant is quite dark, but it doesn't really matter.

Himshikhar is a solid Nepalese restaurant with a great menu and good service. I eat here often. A good place to come with the whole family, also.

Go upstairs for better surroundings. Staff friendly and speak good English as Nepalese Gherkhas were part of British army. Thalis dishes well presented and very filling. Chicken dish was more distinctively tasty than lamb dish. All ingredients were fresh, well cooked and not drowned in spices! Service very quick and food hot to the table.

I work in an office nearby, and Himshikar is a favourite place for lunch among our staff. The dishes are usually great value, also the sides like the naan bread are well prepared, and we always get a friendly welcome. It's in a very busy street, so it doesn't look that inviting from the outside, but it's worth looking in!... More

This place looks a bit grim from the outside, but if you go upstairs it is OK. Service is friendly. Food is OK, not exceptional, but good value - if you order a curry you get all the trimmings with it including naan, rice, daal and raita. So don't order any extras!

The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but we quickly forgot that. Friendly staff, good food and great value!

Had a very good meal at Himshikhar this evening. Was looking for somewhere simple and reasonably priced as travelling alone on business. The restaurant itself is not fancy in terms of decor but clean and the welcome and service through the meal were good. Meal came with rice, naan and papadum included and was plenty. Just over 20 euro for... More

Whoh.. I was so suprised. Amazing shrimpfood they have there. Naan -bread is very good. Definately will go again. Decoratively it wasnt really good. Music was ok but suddenly it started playing some club house. Staff was nice and the size of meal was big. Very hard to walk after.
