Amazing food!

We dropped in by chance and I'm so glad we did! The food was absolutely gorgeous; Full of flavour! The interior of the restaurant is beautiful; you feel like you've stepped into a different world. The smell of incense wafts around and creates a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

The Himalayan Cafe is my favourite Brisbane restaurant. Have dined here many times over the years. The food and service are consistently great. The ambience is lovely with Buddha statue shrines with candle offerings. It's quieter and even more ambient in the room at the back. The standout dish is the Sherpa chicken. The meat mo mos are a great... More

Came here with family early on a Friday evening with the family. We all shared the many dishes and I was very impressed that even Ms fussy sampled everything, even ate more goat curry. We love this place and we'll be back again.

We went here with a large group on a Friday night and the place was packed and unfortunately we couldn't hear each other speak. The food was awesome so it was worth the noise.

A lovely meal, we had a variety of dishes. The service was great. It's the second time we've been there. Great for a large group. Very friendly staff

I have visited Himalayan Cafe at least a dozen times over the last 13 or so years, and have never had a bad meal. The chilli bead is fresh, soft and delicious. Service can be a little slow during busy times, which is expected. Floor seating out the back has a large Buddha and incense burning which adds to a... More

Highly recommend this place - food and atmosphere is fantastic, especially for a large group of friends. The banquet is great value or just order a number of dishes and share so you can try a few things - everything is yummy! BYO to boot!

I always enjoy the food here. Highly recommend the pesto bread with pesto dipping sauce as an entrée. I could eat that every day for the rest of my life. So goooood. Love the interior and the little cosy booths out back where you can take your shoes off and sit cross-legged at a low-set table and just relax.

After reading the reviews for this place I decided to visit and was expecting great things. Although it was a pleasant night out nothing hit me as extraordinary. Being vegetarian there was quite a few things on offer which is a bonus but nothing was outstanding. I would visit again as nothing was wrong with the visit but there really... More

I ate here with family two nights ago and although I have not been to the Himalayan for several years it is every bit as good as I remembered. We shared several dishes as well as two of the beautiful breads (chilli & garlic) and everything was mouth watering. We sat in one of the back rooms, on cushions around... More
