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 taste, size, prize performance.

But every next time I hade an impression that owner is too much focus on business then on customer demands. 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.

Brilliantly decked out and food tasty. However I often find myself a little uncomfortable here, if I sit in the floor cushions my legs go to sleep and the chairs have a hard ridge that hurts the back of my knees.

In the beginning, the food at Himalaya was excellent. Very nice and tasty Indian/Nepalese-style food. However, quality declined quite a bit over the past two years. After the last two visits I actually felt unwell, the quality of the meat being the cause of it. Also, once I found in a dish's sauce something I couldn't identify, but it looked... More

Food is great, Service is also very good. But if you want the full Indian experience, Look for a table upstairs!
