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.

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

For a foodie who LOVES to eat, my home stomping ground tends to be a little less than thrilling. La Mesa tends to be a friendly, unassuming and comfortable area that doesn't advertise itself as "a destination location" for diners looking for something exciting, exotic and off the beaten path... I am going to say this for the world to... More

My husband isn't a fan of Indian restaurants. He went with a biking group while I was out of town. He was sold, took me as soon as I got home - and it didn't disappoint! I had just been to a place in MD I thought was pretty spectacular - but Himalayan topped it! The Chicken Korma was so... More

This is an interesting and beautifully decorated restaurant, Aside from the food being excellent. I had Chicken Curry and Vegetables in a cream sauce. Both were delicious. They also serve soup and Naan bread with it that comes fresh out of the oven. Service is very good and wait staff anxious to please everyone. This is one restaurant where you... More

My wife and I have eaten in various Indian restaurants in the San Diego area whether in the Gaslamp District downtown, La Jolla, Del Mar and we don't bother anymore because Himalayan Cuisine never disappoints. Not only are the prices extremely good, the food is superb. Always a delight to go and have dinner or even lunch. My wife migrates... More

Finally I got to eat here and what a joy it was. The service was excellent and the food most reasonable especially the lunch buffet which was only $7.00 and included soup and choice of 2 entrees. The flavor was great and the Chicken curry was so good I took some home. They give very generous portions and 2 entrees... More

A friend, who also lives in La Mesa, and I decided to catch up. Both of us had never heard of this restaurant that is non-descript in a strip mall. The food was absolutely delicious. The lunch special is low priced and we ate so much food we both went home and took a nap. The menu has a very... More
