Wonderful change of pace. Food was unique and delicious. Service was amazing. Relaxed atmosphere. Nice and quiet. Wonderful experience. They will ask how spicy you want the food which is great. We will be back.

The meal was delicious and the lunch selections offered great deals. Large meals for very reasonable prices. Good atmosphere and good service. The bread was delicious, fresh, and hot from the oven. You must try the fresh bread.

Delightful, gracious dining. Family-friendly, many items to choose from, and next-door there is a Himalayan marketplace to buy dry goods, spices, groceries, clothing, and other items reminiscent of an old world market, minus the haggling and bartering. Wine and beer are available with meals, and meals run the gamut from mild, mildly spicy, medium, and very spicey--just let the staff... More

This is the second time we have visited Himalayan Cuisine in the past four months( we are from Las Vegas). The service is excellent and the food is delicious. Each entree comes with lentil soup. We ordered the chicken tikka masala(my favorite), chicken korma, garlic naan and veggie samosas. I could eat here at least twice a week! The portions... 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.
