The food was okay, but incredibly plain. All the flavours were dialed waaay down. Maybe locals can't handle spice or flavour? Prices are a bit high, too. If you are looking for something different, this might be the place to go. But, for anyone who...is used to well made Indian food, this place won't exactly hit the spot. Also, I am like 90% sure that these guys deliberately gave change using counterfeit euro coins. Can't think of anywhere else I could possible have picked up three 2 euro coins like this.More

I had a great experience at the Himalayan Gorkha restaurant! I'd read about it on a travel blog and thought I'd give it a try, and I was pretty happy with the food, service, and value. The waiter was very warm and friendly, and even...when it got busy, he was still very attentive. I got naan, a mango lassi, chicken momos as a starter, and the Himalayan Gorkha Chicken with a side of rice, and it was all around 12 Euros. The food was fabulous, and if I have an opportunity to go back to Pristina, I'll definitely come back to eat here. It isn't a very large restaurant, so I recommend going on the earlier side if you can.More

I live in Prishtina and wanted to become a regular at this place. However, it wasn't possible due to the poor treatment I got from the waiter EVERY.SINGLE.TIME I visited. He always had a reason to come up to me and tell me why I...can't/shouldn't order something at this time: it's too soon, it's too late, there might not be enough ingredients, we'll close in 1 HOUR. I'm not sure what that guy's problem is, but I sure wish he wasn't there. I'm not going to that place anytime soon. If they dread my business, they wont be getting it.More

We just love love love this place!!! I eat here at least twice per week because it is so nice. I love sweet flavours in my chicken and coconut dishes so i always go for butter chicken and chicken korma. I also love their palak...paneer and tika masala chicken. The start chicken tikka is also great. Naan bread is just amazinggggg! I am so happy this place exists in Prishtina.More

Since I have found this place I have been ordering from it almost every weekend. I personally love the food BUT I can't testify if it's authentic or not since I have never personally been to India. The reason for 4 out of 5 stars...is the same reason why I order from the place instead of going there; the location! I really don't like the location at all! But as I said I find the food incredibly delicious.More

Food here was really lovely as were the staff. We had a curry and rice each, which were brought out quite quickly - lovely food presentation and big portions! It was a bit expensive compared to the surrounding restaurants (€42 for two people), however this...did include starters, two curries, two rices and two drinks each. This was a bit expensive but I would still recommend it as the food quality really was worth it!!! :)More

Himalayan Gorkha makes tasty food. They serve a variety of curries, starters and side dishes. The food is fresh and the staff are usually helpful. On one occasion, they were even kind enough to make me a dish which wasn't on the menu. Portions are...a good size. The restaurant is in a central location. Although the building it is in needs some work, the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. The mango lassi, strawberry lassi and tandoori chicken tikka are highlights.More

"Butter Chicken, Barely Curry. I feel sorry for the owner, great effort with bringing the flavours of India to the parts of the unknown. Unfortunately for this restaurant, my friends and I have experienced Indian around the globe that would parallel the flavours of India....Butter Luck Next Time.More

Great place, great service. Food is decent and can’t fault it. I am recommending to try out, it’s the only place in pristine unfortunately but it’s great. Afgani chicken, madras is good. Thanks.

My husband wanted Indian kind of food for once so I found this place. I ordered what I know is a hit and you just can't get enough if...at least here at home. The owner was a nice guy who learned to speak a little...Albanian- but the food was terrible! The butter chicken was soooo sweet that I thought I was eating sweet and sour kind of food. We asked and it was supposed to be sweet because of the coconut- but you couldn't even taste spices which I'm used to. Some of the other food we ordered was OK but not GOOD. The location is so hidden and not a tempting place to go looking for food - an abandoned mall. This just isn't a place I recommend or ever want to go back to.More

The food is ok, mixed Asian choices. The thing is that they don't want to work at all. If you call for delivery after 8 pm it's too late. If you go there to eat after 9 PM is too late (even if you are...just 2 people and inside there is a full 6 people table eating!! And they should close at 10...) Besides this, we achieved once to have dinner there. The location is terrible an horror-movie corridor in the first floor of a desert mall. And the interiors are a bit old fashion, let's say...More

Location is shabby and hard to find, though there isnt any signs outside of the retaurant. But once you are inside the smell of indian food strikes you. Finally something except from just salt and pepper as your only spice, too all the food which...is served in Prishtine. Chicken momos was ok, but that was because of the green and red chutney i think. Lamb karahi was also ok, considering not eating indian food for several months. This can obviously not match real desi food as it is made in London or in Dehli, Lahore or Karachi. Nor so many other places either, but it was desi spices, and that was excellent for me. Their naan was good.More

We are so pleased that our friends told us about Himalayan Gorkha as we would never have found it otherwise. The food is delicious and the staff are really helpful - they even made me a dish that I requested, which wasn't on the menu....Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for curry in Pristina.More

Although the location doesn't seem much (or even welcoming), the food is really excellent. Very good vegetarian dishes (esp the mattar paneer) and friend happy with the chicken. Good samosas. Definitely will be back next time in Pristina.
