Everything we have had here has been excellent! The staff will help you choose dishes you will enjoy if you are not well versed in Indian food. We eat her often -- definitely a go to restaurant for us in Ventura. The new patio is lovely.

The Himalya offers a good Indian/Himalayan menu and excellent service. We have been to India and were skeptical about how spicy the food was likely to be. Our waiter said to order medium and it was delightfully flavorsome and spicy. Himalya offers an enjoyable change from the standard burgers, pizza and Mexican fare.

We were visiting from Palm Desert, CA. and always try the local Indian restaurants. Between the two we tried, Taj Cafe and Himalaya, we thought the Himalaya was the winner. The service was excellent at both restaurants. The Taj had the better ambiance but the spices and sauces at Himalaya's made it our favorite for the area. We had the... More

I ordered take out: tandoori vegetables, paneer saag & Sherpa curry chicken. Everything was very fresh. The paneer was outstanding. It's nice to be able to get dishes that are different from the standard "Indian" restaurant. The people are very friendly and helpful. I will definitely order from here again, even though it's a bit out of my way. It's... More

We enjoyed our meal here very much. The staff was very helpful and the food was unique. Our server gave us tips on what to order based on a few questions he asked us such as our spice tolerance and what meats we enjoyed. One member of the group is not very adventurous but tried everything and enjoyed it all!... More

Had dinner here with the wife yesterday. The only reason that I didn't give this place a five is the atmosphere and the service aren't quite five stars, but the food is! I have eaten food from the Indian Sub-Continent all over North America, and this is one of the beat that I have been to. I eat Indian Food... More

The menu is a combination of Indian, Nepalese and Tibetian food whic is unique. The flavor was excellent and the service was also very good. Spicing was subtle but flavorful. Not really a fancy restaurant but definitely worth trying if you want a change form a typical Indian restaurant menu.
