Casual Place for Unique Flavors

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... read more

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

The Food Quality is great. Though they have more Nepali dishes but whatever Indian Dishes they have are excellent. The taste of the Indian food is awesome. I really enjoyed the Food with my family and to be honest they have the best taste in Town. I have tried almost all other Indian Restaurants nearby but this place is simply... More

I went there for the all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. The staff is always friendly and the food authentic. It is a place I like to take my staff from work every 3-4 months for something totally different.

I went to this place and its sucks. They told us it would be 10 minute wait to take our order. They do not clean tables between patrons. You can still see stuff on table from previous meal. Do not go here if you are American. I made one comment and the waiter and fat guy started talking negatively about... More

I should disclose that Indian food is one of my favorite spectrum of flavors and Himalayan never disappoints (just be sure you order the right amount of spicy). We are regulars after a day of shopping, a casual birthday or taking friends there for their first exposure to Indian. We love it all - the veggie options, curries, tandoori and... More

I was in Deerfield Chicago on a business trip with a few coworkers. My foodie business travelers like to dine in unique restaurants so we used some social media apps to check out the local food scene. We searched for Indian restaurants and the Himalayan Restaurant was near the top of our list. The restaurant received great ratings and was... More

Why have I been avoiding Indian food all these years? Beats me. If you haven't eaten Indian food, you should definitely give it a try. Himalayan Restaurant in Niles is in a strip shopping center, near the Golf/Milwaukee Road area. Four of us had dinner there on a Saturday night, and it was very good. A good dish to start... More

I am not a huge fan of Indian food, but if I do go for Indian cuisine, I prefer the flavors of Nepal. Himalayan has been in this location for several years now, and I frequent it mostly for the lunch buffet. Several dishes are available for lunch and they change daily. They typically always have Tandoori Chicken, Khasi Ko... More

I'm vegan so when I found this restaurant I was happy to add it to my list. The menu has lots to chose from, so my non-vegan friend was happy too. The portions were good, we didn't have to wait a long time for the food. I love spicy food, so I got my food on the medium level. It... More
