I stopped in for the buffet lunch with a group of friends. The food was good (for example, there was one okra dish that was especially tasty), but we happened to arrive at a time when the buffet was a little depleted, and they were pretty slow to replenish things. So we sat through lunch eyeing the buffet so as... More

My wife and stopped here after a long day of activity. The restaurant very relaxing. I had the Vegetable Curry and it was outstanding, the best I've had. My wife had the Daal Maharani which was quite good as well. She would have preferred it to have a bit more 'pop' to it but that is a personal preference. We... More

Portions were smaller than we've typically had at this type restaurant and prices were higher. Quality and taste were outstanding but be prepared to pay resort town costs for what is usually affordable food.

The Himalayan Kitchen is located in the old town area of Durango and was a delightful surprise. I have been to India so I had a sense of what good Indian food should be and this place did not disappoint! For an appetizer definitely try the nan which is a warm, fresh style of Indian bread. It's a great accompaniment... More

Dining here made our recent visit to Durango even more memorable. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. I shared the Chicken Korma with my picky seven year old and she really liked it. My vegetarian teenager ordered the Saag Paneer and said it was the best she ever had. Husband ordered the Lamb Vindaloo and it was very tender... More

Hard to find good Indian food in a big city, but to find one in Durango was a great surprise. Get the mixed grill for the app, all the entres were fantastic.
