We had an awesome evening. Fantastic food- very fragrant. We ordered variety of things and everything was great. Portions were a bit small but definitely sufficient even for sharing. It is a very small place, so make sure to have a reservation.

At $15.23 including tax the lunch buffet offers a good choice of items. Although somewhat like a typical Indian restaurant buffet there were items which you would not normally find in the other restaurants. Sorry, I don't remember the names of the items but a noodle dish with vegetables was very good and a deep fried vegetable item similar to a pekora was delicious. As other reviewers have mentioned their butter chicken is not spicy but it is very tasty and tender. I believe the chicken was cooked tandoori style before being put in the sauce. I found the mango rice pudding a bit too sweet for my taste but it was nice to try something new.

Great personal service, tasty food and reasonably priced. A bit off the beaten trail, hidden beside a Joeys fish restaurant and in an unassuming strip mall but worth it. Place was packed on a Wednesday night.

We have visited the Himalayan twice in 6 months, and we were impressed both times by the quality of the food.
There are enough mild dishes for the kids and spicier dishes for the adults who like it spicy. I had the Himalayan lamb in a cashew sauce which gives it a wonderful creamy texture. My daughter loved the Rasmalai desert, and the rice pudding was delicious.The cucumber water that comes with the meal is a little odd but not unpleasant. We had some pineapple-coconut juices - a great combination.
The restaurant is hidden in a nondescript little strip mall, but the atmosphere inside is very friendly. And the service was attentive without being overbearing.
I would suggest reserving a spot - a number of visitors were turned away as all seats were taken.
