first off, I love this restaurant. Their food is great every time. In the summer's you can sit outdoors on the patio/sidewalk. In the winter time, the inside is small but intimate and authentic feeling. Nepalese food in general isn't necessarily vegetarian, just in case you are unfamiliar with it. This restaurant does have a lot of vegetarian options though.... More

One of the staples of State street and madtown in general , this restaurant rocks. The food is always delicious, hot and spicy when appropriate. Many vegetarian options available with all the right spices. The cuisine is about authentic as you're going to find in Madison. I definitely don't get here enough, but every time I have it's been glorious.... More

I had soup here few days ago and I had a very positive surprise! It's difficult to notice this restaurant from outside but the soup we had was very good. I took some nepali bread with vegetables and a tradiional cake. In two the total cost was only 35 USD! The old woman who works there is very sweet and... More

The food was great. I am not a vegetarian but I ate a vegetarian plate and I was really satisfied with the taste, variety, portion and price. It was a really nice experience with my family because I had never eaten Nepali food and we really enjoyed it! It was kind of small and hot but I guess this could... More

If you are going to be in Madison and want a Nepali treat with a broad vegetarian menu with great non-vegetarian options, go to Himal Chuli. The restaurant is conveniently located between the Capitol and the University. During warm weather, limited outdoor seating is available. Although, when we were there, no table umbrellas were provided, street scene was great. State... More

Very happy to see vegan options, and they even note that they prepare the vegetarian (though not specifically vegan) separately from their other food. I wanted to try a selection so got the Himal Combination plate. The samosa was hot and super delicious! They substituted rice for the roti (which isn't vegan), but there wasn't anything to eat it with.... More

Food here is amazing. I got a nice patio seat so I could watch people pass as I ate my lunch. Definitely stop and try it.

My family and I went there on Saturday July 19th. We were looking for a culinary adventure. We sure found one. Very different flavors and uses of spices. I loved the roti and dahl. I got the momo. I thought more food would come on a plate for $8.99. All that was there was the momo. They should add vegetables... More
