Just ok

Food was nice but nothing special had to ask for cutlery too busy taking phone orders rather than concentrating on restaurant customers

The food is amazing, especially if you want a takeaway. I think the only down side to this place it the restaurant itself i.e. general decor (though un-offensive, just bare). But in my opinion the most important thing about a restaurant is the food itself, and trust me that is on point.

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
