I last visited the Himal Tandoori in December 2014. The whole experience from start to finsih was simply delightful. From the warm friendly welcome to the gorgeous chicken swadilo i had and the modern but cosy ambience of the restaurant. Even the fellow customers were perfect. A thoroughly civilised group of people. The best indian food that i have had... More

The Himal Tandoori looks like a take-away and would best aim at that. I wish to cut to the chase after our poor dining experience. Firstly we were warmly greeted by the waiter who had known me from dining at the Gandi restaurant formerly Dada (now closed), he was aware of my likes and tastes and happily took our order.... More

I won't be using himal again, I have read rave reviews of the restaurant so thought I would give them a go. I wish I hadn't. Me and my wife sat in a waited and waited, they were far more concerned about take away orders then actually serving us. We waited so long we decided that we would instead use... More

My wife and I have been ordering Indian takeaway from the Himal Tandoori for around 6 months now. We often order the set meal which is exceptional value for the amount of great tasting food you get; A pappadum, 2 bahjis, main, side, rice/naan and a cold drink for £8.50 is superb value, especially when you consider that I normally...
