It had been a long time since I have been to a good Indian restaurant, so it was a satisfying experience at Himalaya. The additional positive aspect was that you had an additional choice of dishes that were Nepalese, and Tibetan. Not the greatest Indian food I've ever had, but very good, nonetheless.

I was on way home from SantaBarbara and wanted some healthy somewhat vegetarian food to go. My wife had me go to Himalaya. They have a mix of Tibet and Nepal and Indian food. My wife got Chicken Tiki Masala with Saffron rice, similar to the indian restaurants in past but not too good. I asked about vegetarian dishes. The... More

There are quite a few Indian restaurants in Ventura, but this is the best. Service is prompt, the menu is extensive and the food is great. Highly recommended.

Great experience. From the moment you walk into the restaurant, you can smell the incredible spices. They have a large selection of Nepalese food. The ambiance is enchanting and the service is friendly. You can order your meals from very mild to extremely hot (1 to 5 scale). I recommend that you don't order it "5" unless you really like...

Delicious food, friendly waiters, fun decor. I had never had Tibetan/Nepalese food before and I found it a delicious alternative to standard Indian food.

Everything here is prepared fresh and tastes delicious. I eat lunch at Himalaya a couple of times a week, and have never been disappointed! THE best Indian food in Ventura!

Lovely people welcomed us and motioned if we'd like to sit on the floor to eat. Why not? The food was unusual and we enjoyed it. The staff is friendly, service reasonably quick and atmosphere beautiful.

We love taking out-of-towners here. It's delicious, different and festive - plus you can take your own wine for a modest corkage fee. Everything id good here.

An unexpected delight in a strip mall in a residential area of Ventura, 2 blocks from the Mission, but away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The food was exceptional and authentic. Highly recommend the peanut masala as appetizer and Pishori naan as dessert (though it is not advertized as such). Good selection of beers to go with your... More

The last time I had Nepali /Tibetan food was in a small restaurant in Edinburgh just off the Haymarket Station. Walking into the Himalaya restaurant brought back fond memories of my experience in Edinburgh. The aromas wafting from the kitchen were mouthwatering. The Saag Naan appetizer was one of the best I ever had. My wife selected the Indian chicken... More
