Not changed since our last visit

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... read more

Visited here for a quick dinner on Saturday having never really considered the restaurant for dinner (mostly as I thought it was a cafe). From the outside the restaurant is colourful and inside, cosy with a good ambience. The restaurant does get really busy so I would highly recommend booking in advance. There is also a chicken dish with a... More

Have been to Himalayan Café a number of times over many years. Food is simply fantastic as is the service. In a highly competitive environment in New Farm/Fortitude Valley precinct this restaurant has remained popular and consistent for a very long time. The main man Karma is awesome at the front of this restaurant and very welcoming.

My first Himalayan cuisine and I loved it. I have no idea how to explain the bread, but you must try it - do the dipping sauce too. The dishes reminded me of Indian, but we're still different. This cafe itself had amazing staff and the atmosphere and decor was very appropriate. Would definitely return!

We ate here tonight-Friday without a booking. They were very busy but managed to fit us in. They were operating with no power due to last nights storms, but it was still good. This was our first time here and the menu has lots to choose from. We only had mains and they were tasty and good size

The meat dumplings were great and that special sauce made them terrific! The flat noodle vege soup was filling and very tasty. I have never seen noodles so wide before! The atmosphere of this place is phenomenal. Request to go out the back where there are plenty of pillows for a truly relaxing experience.

I have been here twice with friends and both times I have had a nice meal served by very kind and accommodating staff. My one criticism is that both times I have visited this restaurant I have found the food to be very bland. On my first visit I had a goat curry asking for it to be hot and... More

Came here for dinner with my partner because he's been wanting to try this place. We went there without a reservation and they were really full. However, the waitress spotted a vacant and unreserved table so we were seated right away. Menu has plenty of food choices for both meat and non-meat eaters so it's not a problem if you're... More
