One of the first "ethnic" restaurants in St Charles

You get the best value if you go for the buffet lunch...$9.99, sample lots of different dishes, their bread is fabulous, their service is great. It gets pricey if you go for supper.

I almost never write a negative review of a restaurant. I eat out a *lot* (multiple times a week) and am generally pretty easy to satisfy. However, this restaurant offered such an unnecessarily unpleasant dining experience that it deserves to be reamed by a review. My wife and I arrived at 6:10 on a Saturday evening to an almost empty... More

My visits to Taste of Himalayas add up to triple digits.The service is very consistent but sometimes awkward due to communication issues- though the newer server, Raj, speaks good English. Don't be surprised if you have to call them over to the table, they will not bring your check unless you ask. They are in no rush to get you... More

I am a regular customer of this place. I come here often but since last few times the taste of the food is not the same as before. The staff is still as good as before but I food is not the same.

This is the second time I have been here and it's been wonderful both times. Very extensive menu, family own and run and extremely helpful with menu suggestions for beginners. Wonderful food, atmosphere and very friendly staff. Love it and will return.

They sat us and forgot us for 30 minutes! My husband and I went here for the first time on a Saturday night around 6:30pm. It looked like there were a couple of open tables. The woman said it would be about 5 minutes. No problem - one of the waiter’s sat us in the front corner booth and very... More

Really good. I tried the sampler for one. I had more than I could eat everything was great. The staff was very attentive and patient with my ignorance of this type of food. I had medium spicy and it was just right. I do not like food that is too spicy but a little was just right

My taste buds enjoyed the new flavors from an old world. Sizzling chicken, hot bread and vegetables are delicious. Already planning to go back with friends. Lunch buffet was perfect as we were able to try different foods.

Love the food and the service is attentive and fast. Some of the best Naan and curry we've had. We will certainly be back!
