We ordered the chicken tikka masala(my favorite), chicken korma, garlic naan and veggie samosas. I... read more

Excellent service and tasty food. I had the chicken chilli and the chef's kabobs. Wife had the chicken tiki masala and chicken curry. All were excellent! Warm and fresh food and the lentil soup was delicious.

I must admit I was influenced by previous reviews to eat here. They were all correct. The food was absolutely wonderful. I visited a couple of days after the earthquake in Nepal. I inquired as to family and friends as was told everyone was well. Never the less, the service was spot on, I ate the Lamb Tika Masala and... More

The food in this restaurant is always good. We especially like the tandoor dishes (especially the lamb) and the curries. This is a great place to take a group with disparate tastes as it provides a variety of spicing options as well as meat centric through vegan dishes. Everyone will leave full and happy.

If you're in the area, do your self a huge favor and visit to enjoy a wonderful Himalayan / Nepalese meal. The curries are rich and savory, the portions are very generous and the staff is politely attentive. It's joyful here, a lovely way and place to enjoy a good meal.

Was in town on my own and decided to get take-out and bring back to the hotel from here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and I am so glad I did. I think this was one of the best meals I have every had and certainly the best version of Chicken Korma ever. The dining room is large and very... More

Don't be put off by the restaurant's location in a strip mall, this place is a great find, and you'd be hard pressed to find a better value for lunch. Their lunch special consists of your choice of two (yes, two) entrees, plus dal soup, rice, and freshly made naan. I had the chicken vindaloo and the chicken kebab, and... More

We discovered this place by accident and its really very good. My friend who lives in Arizona insists on going there for dinner every time he's in town. Not an impressive location but excellent food, large portions and spiced to your taste. Try it, you'll love it.

My husband just got back from Nepal and he wanted me to taste the food that he enjoyed. We went here and had momo's and then we both had tandora. Husband had chicken and I had lamb. There was more than enough to take home and have for dinner the next night.

The Himalayan Cuisine is in a strip mall just off the downtown area of La Mesa off route 8. My friend and I decided to eat there because several years ago we had visited India together and then we both had visited Tibet.We fell in love with Indian food. The restaurant is an eclectic mixture of food from those countries... More
