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...

We have ordered takeaways on a regular basis from this restaurant for the last couple of years. During this time the food has always been of a high quality and I have recommended to friends. Tonight has seen a dramatic change! Having ordered online our food arrived 45 minutes late. To be fair to our driver he was very apologetic,... More

I'm from Birmingham and eat plenty of curry and I think it's fair to say I know a good curry and the food in this place was very very good. I highly rate this place

Went for a fantastic Easter feast with my family and my girlfriend at Himal. We ate like champions and the food was spot on! The chicken Ceylon was excellent and was complimented well with saag aloo. Parents shared a sizzling tikka. Rockstar performance.

Second time I have used this as a takeaway. First time a year ago black hair in my food. Gave a wide berth and revisited tonight. Nepalese special chicken curry was lame. One piece of the chicken was tikka - remaining five pieces were thrown in as an after thought and barely cooked. All the condiments for poppadoms arrived, but... More
