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

On a recent trip through Madison we ate at Himal Chuli on a lazy Saturday evening. The place smelled great and the menu contained lots of tasty sounding dishes. Our meal was mostly a disappointment due to the blandness of all of our dishes. We had one with tofu, spinach, potato, one with cauliflower, a couple of samosas and dal... More

This beats all the Nepali restaurants I have been to, admitting that I haven't been in Nepal yet. I was lucky to share many dishes with my companions and they were all super good. I especially liked all the vegetarian dishes such as the ocra and the egg plant. I might have liked it a bit more spicy, but there... More

Sooooo, this was a very ambivalent experience. I am Indian, and have eaten in several Nepali restaurants, and the food was unlike any Nepali food I have every eaten. The dal was fresh but completely bland, they had a soupy dish with vegetables that was supposedly spicy, but it was spicy in a very bare way - like someone had... More
