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

It was great. Wonderful choices on menu and good service. There is an Indian Grocery store next to restaurant and it had interesting foods and gifts.

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

We are huge Indian/Himalayan lovers and the food here was spot on! I'd say the tikka masala was one of the best I've ever had. They also gave us a lentil soup for our baby, for free. Oh and make sure you order their garlic naan! Outstanding and if we're ever in the area again we will be going back!

The spicing of the food was excellent and the decor fine. A major criticism was our tandoori mixed grill was delivered to the table, but the rice than accompanied it and my young girls Birianni came over twenty minutes later. My kids were ready to chew the table by the time their food came and our tandoori was cold by... More

Ate here a couple of years ago when it was much smaller and enjoyeme, we were disappointed. The vegetable pakoras had an excessive batter-to-veg ratio and were less than crispy. The chicken orma was undistinguised. Maybe just a bad night for them, but we wer let down.

This was a pleasant surprise. We decided to go here because of the tremendous reviews, and we weren't disappointed. Yes, it's in an unassuming strip mall, but the service, the meal, and the price make up for that. The menu has plenty of delicious options. In fact, I believe I would love anything and everything on that menu. So much... More
