Nice Indian/Nepalese food

We went there for lunch. Nice food (tasted authentic to the cuisine), nice decor (the floor seating option was cool -- we went for that), friendly and fast service. Their Momo was excellent! Definitely worth a visit!

They do cater to your individual needs. Don't like onions, they will remove it from yur order. The food is good tasting and the weight staff know everything about how it's cooked and what the ingredients consist of.

I know they don't promote themselves as a traditional Indian restaurant, but that’s what I was there for... That being said, I enjoyed the fact that the menu was a little more diversified than traditional Indian fare, but it wasn’t so far out there that I still felt within my comfort zone. All our food was delicious, well prepared and... More

I've visited Himalaya twice in the past 6 months. The first time it was on a friend's recommendation and they were holding a fundraiser so we'd made a reservation. Food and service were great and the atmosphere was cozy and eclectic (in a good way). The second time, I took family members on a Sunday evening. We didn't make a... More

Going out asa family is difficult with one carnivore, one vegetarian and one vegan but her we had a fanatic meal that satisfied all of our taiste buds. For a full dinner for three at less than a hundred dollars we have now found our goto place in Ventura!

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.
