One of my faves!

I love, love, love the lunch buffet they offer here. They have selections of salad, appetizers, noodles, rice, meaty and meatless dishes, a couple of desserts, and sauces and chutneys. My favorite food, here, is the Tandoori Chicken...mouth-watering! I took off a star due to the fact that the... read more

Himalayan Fusion is one of our family's favorite restaurants in Charlottesville. We consistently find the food excellent and so do our kids. The service is always great and it's a perfect spot for dinner before or after Friday's After Five.

The food itself is decent and has rather large portions, but you will need to wait a few hours to get your food. I have gone twice now...The first time the restaurant "lost" our reservation and we had to wait 30 minutes to be seated and 2 hours to get our food. I thought maybe it was just because they... More

The restaurant has a very good deal for $16 you can get in on trade naan and a dessert. However we all thought that it was a little plain (not spicy). The service was good, that we weren't amazed with the restaurant itself.

In C'ville for one night and decided to eat at Himalayan Fusion for a treat.... Was not disappointed! It's restaurant week so somewhat of a limited (?) menu but a great cause... Naan was great, chicken chili blew my socks off! Great flavor and the heat was more than I expected. Not over the top but appropriate, of course it... More

We had the buffet lunch here. It was OK, but nothing too special. The selection wasn't large, though for non-meat eaters there seemed to be an assortment. The service, well, our water glasses were re-filled several times, but then again, we were never asked if we wanted anything besides water. When we walked in, we were told to sit anywhere... More

We've been to Himalayan Fusion several times and have always been impressed with the lunch buffet. Very reasonably priced $7.99) with an excellent selection of entrees, including vegetarian options. We have also been there for dinner, and have been equally as impressed. Located on the Downtown Mall, there is outdoor seating available as well. Highly recommended!

My wife is both vegan and wheat-free, but we found many dishes that fit her dietary restrictions. We ordered the Kachumbar salad (mango, onion, cucumber, and red onion, with a lime dressing--so good we asked for the recipe), bhendi masala (okra curry), and baigan bharta (eggplant with wonderful spices). Each dish was wonderful. We had wonderful service, too. If we... More

My wife and I were walking around the Historic Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, looking for a lunch stop. We saw this restaurant, which we haven't tried before, and went in. The interior was pleasant and the staff friendly. We decided to try the lunch buffet ($8.99). It was OK, but just OK. I'm gluten-intolerant, so I have to be careful... More
