Quite authentic Indian food for acceptable prices

Why do I say "acceptable" prices, the prices are actually too high compared with the performance of size of dishes and taste. I can say that cause I am going here regularly over the last five years now and they did not improve but rather rely on the regular clients but other places show better... read more

Great restaurant with a lot of things on the menu. We got a big menu for 3 people with a lot of small dishes. Every dish had 'an alternative' you could choose instead. In that way are you able to create your dinner just the way you want it. The food was great, the staff is polite, the restaurant is... More

I visited this restaurant few times during my stay in Nanjing - every dish I tried was delicious - starting from different sorts of curry/masala, grilled vegetables, noodles to delicious mango lassi. Very nice design of the interior, you can sit on traditional chairs or on the floor on the pillows. The only drawback is long waiting time for service,... More

Prices become not competitives, dishes seems to be reduces in amount and my feeling was - other restaurant are... More

I visited this one and also the restaurant they have near Xuanwu lake (Ganesh I think). The food at both was very good especially if you ask for spicy. The beer selection was surprisingly good and they have a good mix of German and Belgian beers, as well as the usual and Kingfisher.

I was really looking forward to my night out here and on first impressions it was really well decked out with nice touches and friendly staff but the food was disappointing and very bland compared to other Indian restaurants I have visited.

During my lenghty stay in Nanjing, I had to try the Himalaya restaurant for my curry fix! I was not dissappointed with my choice from the menu. I was glad to have tried this establishment, which is located with several other expat restaurants near to the Sheraton Hotel. The sevice & staff were efficent, friendly and the ambience was excellent.
