“Could have been a little more generous.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We dined at Himalaya in Surry Hills yesterday at lunchtime. Following a previous favourable review, I thought that I would try the goat curry and whilst the flavour of the meat and sauce was excellent, most of dish consisted of bone and sauce. I expect a goat curry to be a bit on the bony side but surely more actual meat could have been included. Similarly, the chicken tikka entrée was very good but a bit on the small side.

My vegetarian wife had no problems with her serving sizes with two large samosas but she commented that they tasted as if they had been re-cooked however her veg. curry main was very good in both flavour and size.

We went early and were the first customers of the day so no surprises that the service was very good. The venue is rather plain and uninspiring but it was also very neat and clean and as we used a discount voucher and were byo, the overall value was outstanding.

“Great taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The best food I have ever had. Goat karahi and naan is my favorite. I also love the chicken biriyani, tea, gulab jamun, ras malai and chicken curry. Most of the weekends I go there for dinners.

“Great spices, flavours and generous portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What a fantastic surprise, the mixed entrée contained lamb, chicken, fish and more, amazingly good. Followed by great mains of lamb sagwala and chicken lahori with fragment rice and the best garlic naan I've eaten, a couple of desserts and our BYO Shiraz made for one of the best Pak-Indian meals we've eaten. Great service, convenient location, if not the flashest premises, but clean and great value.

“good local quisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The dishes were amongst the best indian cooking we have had.The servings could have been larger but this did not detract from our evening as we ordered a bit more and found different dishes, a goat one being excellent. Will return on our next visit to Sydney
