The food and service were great. I would definitely eat here again. We had the buffet and the food was fresh and tasty.

Nice restaurant in good location. We visited with a group on coupon for a dine out. Service is commendable. They gave masala pappad with three chutney as welcome dish😀 We tried chilli shrimp dry (not in menu but they customized for us ) and tried khasi Ko biriyani (lamb). Quantity of biriyani was good and spicy level was increased on... More

We have been going to this restaurant for several seconds years. It is ideal for us as the spices are very aromatic without being very spicy. We have the buffet every time as it is the biggest bargain considering the quality of the dishes, ambiance and service. Tandoori chicken is brought to the table along with naan. My only disappointment... More

I had lamb vindaloo which was ok. My wife had tandoori chicken. It came on a sizzling plate and looked good (see photo) but the chicken was cold. Now a tandoor typically operates at about 1000 degrees so this had obviously just Been cooked earlier and pulled out of the fridge - unacceptable. Also the service was dire. On one... More

This is a nice restaurant for an area with few other Indian restaurants. Native Indians do eat there quite a bit during my visits, which is usually a good sign. The buffet at lunch has a good mix of veggie and omnivore selections for a reasonable price. Dinner is more family style, and the price is reasonable for a big... More

My family dines here a couple of times a year but this was the first time we went for brunch. We didn't realize that there was a brunch buffet. For $10 all you can eat, it is a terrific deal. We looked at the spread and decided that we preferred to eat off the menu. That said, the spread was... More

A hidden gem in downtown St Charles. Go at lunch time for the all you can eat buffet of authentic Indian cuisine.

We have been going to Taste of Himalayas for years, and every time the food is great. Jack, the owner, always stops by the table to make sure we're happy and taken care of. The staff always asks how we are. The food is consistently excellent and they get the spice level right. We'll be back again and again, it's... More

Small but attractive lunch buffet. Limited selection about a dozen items. One dessert - rice pudding. Be aware that the buffet includes a freshly prepared dish of barbequed chicken - don't fill up until you get the chicken. The waiter also brings a Naan type of bread. I didn't see this explained anywhere on the menu. Tasty food.
