We visited during restaurant week so dinner was only $19 for an appetizer, main course and dessert. The food is Indian, Chinese, Nepalese. There were some interesting menu items I'd never seen before and some familiar things. I had Nepalese chicken dumplings which were very good. My husband enjoyed a Nepalese curry dish. Worth a visit.

This was the first time I have ever eaten Himalayan food. For those unfamiliar, it seems a mixture of Indian and Chinese. The spices in the food are fantastic and the flavors full. The garlic naan is excellent as an appetizer. My personal favorite are the Momo's and the Kaftas. Be sure to park in the deck, as they validate... More

Located on the downtown pedestrian mall but super convenient to the Market Street parking garage, this is one good restaurant! Take the mall-side elevator down to the ground floor and walk across to Himalayan Fusion for Nepalese and Tibetan food that is delicious, well presented and served by a friendly and helpful waitstaff. We have eaten here on several occasions... More

So the next day I joined my friend for a return visit to this delightful Indian restaurant. The Lunch Buffet offered a large choice of Indian... More

The food was terrific. It was spicy and not only because of the heat. The spices were well balance and enhanced the lamb. Very generous portions.

We walked in at 8.45 PM and were alerted by our server that they closed at 9 PM. We asked if he meant the establishment closed at 9 or last order was at 9 and were told he meant the last order was at 9 for which there was plenty of time. Service was decent throughout as was the food,... More

Looking for a change from local Southern fare? Then Himalayan Fusion is definitely the place to go. We went for dinner and liked it so much we went back twice for the buffet lunch which was even better than the dinner. The food is fresh, varied and very tasty, with just the right amount of spice to make your palate... More

Great location on the Downtown Mall. Food is wonderful but the place is small so make a reservation or go early.
