“was good but not so good now”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

used this restaurant for many years but found the meat/fish content on the meals was diminishing dramatically meaning it was all sauce. mentioned it several times but nothing changed so we reluctantly don't go any more, I say reluctantly because the staff and sauces are very nice but am not prepared to pay for three king prawns in a dish

“lovely curry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

The meal we had here was very good. I had a goat curry, Which I had not tried before. It was excellent. My husband had a lamb curry. We had a takka dhal and vegetable curry to go with the rest of our meal plus one rice dish. It was all very good. the staff were all very attentive and friendly.This was the first time we had been there for a long time and will not leave it so long next time.

“Slightly different.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have been to the Himalayan before but I haven't reviewed it for some reason.On each occasion the food has been very good. My wife & I love Nepalese food; it's slightly different to basic Indian (Bangladeshi) food.They use cinnamon a lot,as well as lemons and Ajwan seeds, to give a distinctive, earthy taste.
It was very quiet when we went there, even though it was a Saturday night.Very surprised as previously it was advisable to book in advance.This made us wonder if something had changed.But the food was good as expected.The service was good, & they even dropped us home as there was a long wait for a taxi.
The only reason this doesn't get our maximum rating is because we compare it to one of the best restaurants we have eaten in: The Ghurka Restaurant in St Austell,Cornwall.
A good experience,shame about the quiet atmosphere,but will go back.
