We were in Himalayan so far over 10 times and hooked few of our friends too. Make sure to do the reservation. Lamb is excellent...... Service is still top notch with very reasonable prices. Love it

Why on earth did it take us so long to discover the Himalayan? This is by far one of the best restaurants in Calgary with amazing food and fabulous service. Do not hesitate to make this your "go to" restaurant, because it is now ours....More

We have been to this restaurant 4 times and the food is always excellent. Well worth booking as the restaurant gets very busy. If you want a great meal it is well worth a visit.

Our server John was very perceptive and gracious. The food was delicious. Loved Chicken momos and chatpat. Will be a favourite go to Resturant - pity you don’t open lunch hour.

What an amazing restaurant! I’m a vegetarian and I had the best tofu I’ve ever eaten. The portions are perfect, the service and staff are all amazing, definitely will be back.

We walked an hour to get here after it was recommended to us and it was worth it - yummy food and good beer. The set menu was good, as were the mains that also come with bread and rice. Very filling and satisfying.

Wonderful food and service. So many options, on the menu, it was difficult to pick (I wanted almost all of it). Two hints: the parking is very limited and they were very busy (on a Thursday), so call ahead.

No buffet. They used to have a lunch buffet but no longer serve lunch at all. Dinner is by the menu.
