Hard to find, but worth it

I visited thus restaurant before it moved and was keen to find it again. I walked past it several times before I found it - for some reason it just doesn't leap out at you. It wasn't busy. Perhaps others can't find it. The food was good. I had chicken tikka, dupiaca and nan. All well prepared... read more

Himalaya used to be one of the best Indian restaurant in Kiev. My memory made me be elated when I have been going to have a dinner there after a long pause. That night we ordered hot snack, Mutton Masala, rice and naan. The order was served in 3 minutes... Warm hot snack and more cold than warm meat and... More

Visited this restaurant with my girlfriend, not the most easy place to find due to lack of a sign. The interior is well presented and service was fine. The food was of a good standard although lacked a little spice that I'm normally used to, however I would recommend a visit. Being used to UK prices I thought this restaurant... More

Visited this restaurant in October 2015 wid some friends when I was in Kiev. Authentic Indian taste and very good presentation. The furniture looked like Indian (not sure if it is Indian or not). The staff was very good and helpful. Will surely visit this restaurant again .

I went previously to the old restaurant in the centre a few years ago and vouched never to return. The new one looks and feels better but unfortunately the chef clearly doesn't know a curry from a McD! The food bears no resemblance to any other curry house in the world and misses the right spices, cooking style and lacks... More

I had a meal in October in Himalaya. I decided to try the trusty staple - Chicken Madras with rice and nan bread. The meal was good but for my taste could have been more spicy. Will try Vindaloo next time!

I was surprised to find an Indian restaurant in Kiev (was recommended by a friend)! The location is convenient: a few minutes walk from Olimpiiska metro station. The decor is totally authentic; the management got the furniture and accessories from India! There is a wide variety of food on the menu, very similar to what you'd find in a typical... More

Throughout the years it's been our favorite Indian restaurant in Kiev! Love the food, the look of this place and the service! Definitely recommend it! Our favorite dish - butter chicken and garlic naan :)
