Mouth wateringly good!

We went to the Himal early Friday evening for our date night. The restaurant was empty so we had our pick of tables. We chose to sit by the window, which we were glad of later as there were a few collections of take outs as the evening went on. We had already decided that we were to try... read more

Went to this restaurant for a 7.00pm meal on a Friday night. No problem getting a seat for two as the place was empty. The service though, was impeccable as we were both made so welcome with excellent service throughout the meal. The food was prepared fresh and served hot as was very tasty. Overall, a very good experience, though... More

When ever we go away we always have a curry, it's like an unwritten rule! So after searching on Trip Advisor we headed for Himal. The outside of the building doesn't look up to much but don't be put off because inside is nicely decorated and the food is delicious so you'd be missing out. Prices are moderate and the... More

We've been using the Himal Tandoori for a couple of years now, and have always been very happy. The service is always quick and friendly, its also particularly good that they try to accommodate any tweaking of the menu items to suit our finicky family tastes!

Authentic Nepalese food. Excellent service. Base camp curry is to die for. Chicken tikka masala is definitely kids favourite and wife's favourite is scallops starter and duck curry. New menu gave us more excuse to go there again.
