Tasty Reasonable Lunch Beffet

I like to try new dishes. I came to Himalayan for lunch buffet, and I was not disappointed. They offer variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options - one of which was goat curry that I must have had a dozen bones left on my plate! It was so delicious! The fresh naan came as I started to sit... read more

If you like taking small steps when trying differs cuisines, the lunch buffet here gives you that chance at a very reasonable price. Service is minimal other than ordering and getting a drink but the self serve buffet allows you to experiment! Traditionals like tandoori chicken and stews are ever present and the desserts are great. Come hungry and leave... More

I'm Indian, so I know good Indian food. This is better than some of the restaurants on Devon Ave, that's saying a lot. The quality of the food is great. It's just I wish there was more. I order 2 chicken biriyanis, and 2 curries, and some keema naan. Keema Naan is the best thing I've ever discovered, lamb in... More

Didn't expect much from this place. I ordered the chicken karom, it was one of the best I had in a long time. Food came real fast and the waitresses are very friendly. Prices are real good for amazing food. 5 stars

My wife and I LOVE Indian cuisine, and when we moved to Chicago several years ago, we were determined to find a place as good as our all-time favorite in Kansas City. We ate our way up and down Devon Avenue, around town and in the suburbs past Wheaton. No luck. But then we stumbled onto this place. OUTSTANDING! Our... More

I came here when I got engaged, and again two years later, because we were looking for Tibetan food, and this was as close as we could come. The food is really good and not overly expensive, they have a menu full of Indian as well as Nepalese dishes. Skip the appetizers or just get samosas, then go for the... More
