This meal was as good as it gets. My dinner guests were over-the-top with praise for their plates. The menu provides a wide variety of choices. My own lamb plate was excellent. We enjoyed the local tap beer, and the breads were perfect. The meals were ample and so desert was not an option for us.The staff were attentive and... More

If you're looking for a new cuisine to try out in YYC, this restaurant should be at the top of your list. Be sure to make a reservation as it is extremely popular and somewhat small (although they are expanding to the next-door restaurant!). Also, be prepared to look for parking elsewhere as the lot is quite small. So far... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat ever. The flavors are impeccable and the cookery is on point. Portions are great and the staff is amazing. If you are looking for a different milder spin on 'Indian food' this is the place!!

Food is really interesting. complimentary Appetizer no choice 2 dipping sauces & Crackers (thin made of ancient grains) It would be nice if they offered more spice with the choices on menu. Ate here at least three occasions all 3 times both food & service was good.

This is a fun place to eat that has a bit of a new food experience. It is a fair price for good food.

A lovely little restaurant in an unassuming location. Great food and good service. We were there on a Friday with an early reservation time and it was almost full when we arrived. Try the chau chau.

This is a little gem that takes some effort to find. Definitely make a reservation, or you won't get in. The place is packed, and for good reason. The service is very fast, efficient and friendly, and the food is very good. Portions are big overall, so keep that in mind before you order a bunch of appetizers. There were... More

The joint was packed and apparently is always this way, so remember to reserve ahead. We were promptly seated at our reserved table for 4. The Himalayan is not large and one gets a cozy chaos feeling. The owner and staff are a well-oiled multi-part machine of bustling, efficient, and most-of-all effective service. They were friendly and helpful, there when... More
