Kids loved it.

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.

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

We ate here often when we lived in Brisbane about 8 years ago. It was nice to see that nothing has changed. The food was fantastic as ever and the service was good too. I would certainly recommend a visit if you are in Brisbane. Even though we were the only ones with kids in the place, most kids with... More
