An Ethnic Culinary Treasure in Durango!!

As a family we're into Indian, Nepalese and other central asian cuisine so we were excited to see the Himalayan Kitchen while in Durango on spring break. This place turned out to be some of the best food we've ever had. We ate a rather late dinner and didn't have any wait to get seated. The... read more

A great selection of indian and nepalese food. The servers were attentive and they had some delicious house cocktails. We had the moo moo as a starter, they were great and then we had chicken makani and chow chow. The chicken makani was delicious and we also had a cheese naan. I would recommend the Himalayan kitchen if you are... More

Absolutely enjoyed our dinner with delicious preparations, there was nothing left! We had never had the noodle dish from the mountains with chicken and lamb. We also ordered vegetarian dishes with eggplant. Nice ambience and article about the chef at the door entrance!

We were visiting the area on a group ski trip and one of our leaders recommended Himalayan Kitchen. We are glad we gave it a go. The menu was vast and made it hard to decide what to try, it all looked so good. Settled on the Daal-Bhaat Tarkaari a set meal with a sampling of veggi curries, a lentil... More

Was recommended this restaurant by a hotel staff member in Durango on our way from Utah to Ontario, Canada. It had a pleasant atmosphere, friendly service, good food and reasonable price and something that I had never eaten before, how can one ask for more? One of the best cups of Masala Chai I have ever had and this coming... More

We stopped here and ordered a meal to go. After riding back to our campground we were surprised by the tasty treats the staff had packed for us (excellent pakora, just one example). Next time I visit Durango I'll definitely stop by.

We had the buffet, and it was full of Nepalese favorites, go for the lamb if you would like to order off the menu. Check the newspaper or Locals First book, they almost always have a half off special, and it is worth it!

I say Himalayan Kitchen is the best meal in Durango and I am an American food kind of guy! The menu is extensive, the owner/chef is from Nepal and the food he and his staff prepare is the best value in town. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. The food carries well as take out and is nearly as fantastic... More

Had this as take-out. Really good food, the selections we had weren't overly spicy but very flavorful. Didn't visit the actual restaurant so don't know about the service.
