“I know I'll become a regular - I'm regarded as highly critical, but at Himal I was highly delighted ..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Friends who share my tastes recommended Himal to me, but in 2011 I never got around to it , as my dining companions preferred similar venues closer to home, and we have regular favourites. However, two of us went last night, and came away well pleased. it made a welcome change to find Nepalese food on the menu, as well as some Indian dishes we hadn't tried elsewhere. The service was friendly, chef himself discussed the recipe for the delightful home-made mango chutney with me, the food was really tasty, the premises spotless, and although the space is small, there was a lively buzz of people enjoying their evening -a happy ambience. Wine was not overpriced, and our final bill was very reasonable. I'll be back to dine, probably with the occasional takeaway in between !

I have had 5 takeaways in the last year, each has been delivered with immaculate courtesy and on time. The flavours and quality of the food is fantastic. The preparation and attention to detail is amazing. I love this place. Go, you must.
