When visiting mom other in PA, we always ALWAYS make a stop at Himalaya for a weekend lunch buffet. Delicious! There is a huge variety of food, freshly prepared and all delicious, including desserts, fruits, mango lassi and the best chai. Lots of vegetarian options. Friendly staff, always busy but not overly crowded. This is one of our favorite restaurants!

This was a busy place on a Tuesday afternoon for lunch. Lots of business people. It's in a dinky little strip mall, but don't let that stop you. The buffet had a decent assortment of what you would expect at an Indian food buffet in the US. Nothing unusual, but what was there was very good. Lunch was less than... More

For $7.50 - this is one of the best indian lunch buffets around. There was a large selection. The restaurant was full with professionals enjoying a wide variety of meat and vegetarian items on the buffet. As an item was depleted it was promptly refilled. I would definitely go back. It was all tasty and good. The only downside is... More

Excellent service and our food was outstanding. Friendly staff was attentive and explained their dishes. Great experience! Anyone in the Malvern/Frazer/Exton area should make the short trip to the wonderful restaurant.

I liked the buffet and the friendly atmosphere. The Chai tea is especially nice! I wish they put the indian spices out for digestion.

This is a local, family run place in Malvern, PA. They have an excellent lunch buffet featuring multiple varieties of appetizers, vegetarian and non-vegetarian entrees, desserts, mango lassi and hot tea at a reasonable price. Entrees for dinner are reasonably priced and the food is tasty. Their tandoor breads are top of the line. I am a regular at this... More

After having moved to US since about a month, this is the first Indian restaurant that I visited. The choice is nice for most of the Indian style food. I ordered North Indian vegetarian food. The taste was good just like the food I get in Indian restaurants. The spices were well balanced..

I go here for the lunch buffet and for the occasional dinner. Best Indian food of all the places in the area. Good service and great food at reasonable prices.

Went for the buffet lunch and found the the experience to be very satisfying. The place was packed with Chinese, Koreans, Americans, and Indians. Tables, plates, and utensils were clean and the dishes were tasty. The staff were helpful, brisk, and friendly and the cashier thanked us sincerely for our patronage on the way out.

I went here with a work colleague today for buffet lunch and it was an extremely good experience. The food is fresh and the selection is very good. The staff are friendly and the restauarnt is bright and clean. The buffet was reasonably priced and they accept credit cards too, but not AmEx (then again, who does these days?). Highly... More
