“Tasty food, caring service, lots if choices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This was our 5th time dining there over the past year. We had the lunch buffet once, but other times we were there for dinner. On this last visit, we ordered chana masala, tandoor chicken tikka, and naan. We also had white basmati and veg biryani rice. All very good. We went home with leftover rice and chicken! We'll be back!

“Best chicken Tika masala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

This place is a small local place, but the food is so rich and flavorful. They have a good lunch buffet too, which is great if you are unsure of what to order. The staff is friendly and attentive!

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Highly recommend the tandoori chicken, palaak paneer, mutaar paneer, and chicken tikka masala. Grab a mango lassi while you are there as well. They don't disappoint!

“Excellent Indian fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

After a long trip home via car we wanted a meal that would be vegetable based and satisfying. Having heard of the Taste of the Himalayas and being nearby we stopped in.

It was a Thursday night night and they had a few tables seated but it wasn't crowded. We were seated immediately by a very friendly host. Chapati was brought out and the beer was cold.

We ordered Chilli Pakora (breaded and fried long chili) to start, and these had a nice glow of heat. The waiter seemed surprised we would like them.

Then we ordered the Palak Paneer, Chana Masala, and Dal Makkaani. Oh and some garlic Naan. What can I say. we were hungry....

There food came out of the kitchen quickly and everything was quite delicious. Portions are small by American standards, and paying $12 or so for a small dish of vegetables might seem like a lot. They even brought over another dish that we had not ordered just so we could try it.

The quality was very good.

We left stuffed. with plenty of leftovers.

We will be back

“Veggie options in St Charles, Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Nice restaurant offering bufffet and ala carte, good choice of tasty Indian and Nepali cuisine. Nice location, good ambience, and good service. We were a group of 10 and visited late in the evening, we had ordered all vegetarian items, namely, mix pakora platter, Vegetable Kofta, Dal Tadka, palak paneer, aloo methi, chana masala, Tandoori roti and rice. We specified mild spice, the food was good. For those who like extra spice there is also the green peppers in salad which should satisfy the taste buds. Overall a good value for money spent, but items do look pricey if you keep converting with currency rates.
