Great Buffet

Using Trip Advisor, we found this restaurant and had a very nice lunch. The buffet was well stocked and tasty. The price was right. Also, the restaurant is in a nice location, right downtown.

Stopped in on our way through Durango. According to the menu on trip advisor, this is a Chinese restaurant. Waiter mentioned that they have requested the change from Trip Advisor to no avail. None of us had ever eaten Tibetan food, but we were willing to give it a try. The good was excellent (tried yak for the first time)... More

I am skeptical of buffets, but the buffet here was clean and full of fresh choices. The staff is friendly and the food was delicious with several vegetarian options. While we were eating several Tibetan Monks who were here touring came in to eat. They were so full of joy and it made our meal very special! We will return... More

We had the Yak dumplings, they were rather spicy- and we loved them! We also had their rice dessert, it was good as well. They served "lentil bread" which was more like a much better version of a tortilla chip, with a yummy tamarind sauce. We will go back for their lunch buffet, we are anxious to try their other...

I have only been to Durango 3 times in my life,but I have eaten at Himalayan Kitchen no less than 6 times. We always get the buffet and swoon over every bite. The food variety is great, the flavors are excellent and the quantity is plentiful. The naan is very tender and hot, and none of the dishes ran out.... More

A menu from the Chinese restaurant that was in this space five years ago was linked to this restaurant on Trip Advisor so we initially dismissed it. I'm glad we took a closer look at the reviews and then visited their website to see that they do indeed serve traditional Himalayan food. Service was prompt and friendly. Atmosphere was comfortable,... More

Amazing food! We love this type of food and they did not disappoint!! The Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Masala were the best we have had! Our daughter, who does not care for Himalayan food ordered the dumplings and ate the whole plate full. Delicious!! We will be back!

Went here with husband and two teenagers while on vacation in Durango. A spur of the moment decision driven by the amazing smells coming out of this place! The food was really well seasoned and not too over powering. My picky eater son tried Yak dumplings and loved them! We all tried them and they were delicious. Would highly recommend.... More
