Good variety of dishes with lots of good vegetables and chicken. Flavors were delicious and nothing seemed too spicy unless indicated as such. Good service as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

My boyfriend and I were in search of Momos in Calgary after having first tried them in Nepal. The vegtable and pork momos did not dissapoint! The sevice was excellent and the food was outstanding. We will certainly be back.

We went for the lunch buffet with our 2 kids. The food was excellent it was pleasntly spiced with being overly hot. They had all of the staple east indian dishes such as saffron rice, butter chicken, naan, papadum, daal, "curries" and the mango kheer (rice pudding) was amazing. The staff and owner (i think) were very helpful and friendly. The bill including tip was less than $40. Will be dining there again.

Went out last night to the Himalayan with friends who wanted to try something a little different. We have been several times and enjoy the ambiance and food - mainly the lunch buffet. The staff was excellent as usual. They were helpful and provided clear descriptions of the dishes. As mentioned in other reviews, the service was a little slow and our appetizer, the dumplings took a while. There were abject apologies and a 10% reduction in our bill. We neither requested that nor expected it. Be sure to specify how spicy you want your food as it can blow you head off if full strength. The mild is good for me and the flavours of the dish are not masked. Wine is by the glass with a reasonable selection. All the beer is imported and goes well with the food. We all enjoyed our meals and, certainly, will eat here again. As an added touch, the waiters recognized us and welcomed us back.

Hello Dear Tripadvisor Friends!

This gem is basically in a whole in the wall type of place. Hard working owner. Medium sized buffet. Good quality and selection (but not huge...please know this before going in). Seating a bit crowded but patrons know this and know eachother often- and the place is often full....come early......or late......:).

Sunday is the day we like to go....few buffets in Calgary on a Sunday (unless you go to the expensive hotel versions).

Speaking of $ :) --> $13 each for each buffet....we were happy!

Happy eating and travelling, Dear Tripadvisor Friends.
