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

I have been to this place so many times and every time it is amazing.. I travel from the Goldcoast to Brisbane just to eat here. The staff are beautiful, always friendly n polite!

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

This cafe has genuine Tibetan food which is usually a little spicy, although you can ask for very mild, and is certainly very filling.The staff are excellent and the ambience is great. If you would like to sit on a raised platform (crossed legs or legs out straight), there is a room at the back that has tables for this.... More

This was my first visit after many years and had very good memories. The atmosphere, albeit noisy, especially when the music comes on, very nice, lay out lovely. Service quick and very friendly. Probably due to the noise, my order was wrong (I had ordered a noodle dish and got small sample dishes of dahl, curry, etc instead). The order... More

Loads of selection, meat and vego dishes, hearty sauces, good portions. Delicious. Service was good and meals timely even though we had a big group. When a friend booked here for her birthday I was expecting vegetarian, Hari Krishna, light food for no justifiable reason whatsoever. I was wrong. :)
