Strange fusion of Indian and Thai - a Massaman curry like never before and never again! Otherwise starters better than the mains.

The food here is fantastic and a great price for the amount of food you get! The staff are lovely and friendly, as it is a small family run place.
A lot of people complaining about the size of the restaurant - surely you can see this when you enter? If you want a large restaurant with predictable food you've had 1000 times before, visit a large chain restaurant, which are all over our high streets and in every town. Himalayan Tandoori offers a delicious meal, an extensive menu and is reasonably priced and I would recommend it highly!

We picked at random from a number of "Indian" restaurants in Henley on a quiet Wednesday night. This was as empty as the other (sign of the times?) but we were delighted with the selection of the fine home cooked food. All the usual favourites plus some other specials that hit the spot.

The hosts were attentive and friendly and we'd certainly go back.

This is really quite a special place, the food is Nepalese and very different...great spiced carrot BTW in the pickles mix with poppadoms at start!

It feels like you are sitting in someone front room and has a decidedly low rent feel to the decor but don't let that fool you it is cheap food but very weel prepared and different from any curry I have had in Henley which are all standard fare really.

The family that run it are relaxed (if tired looking) and the beers they serve are refreshingly different Nepalese ones - try them they normally have two or three in stock.

The curries are a little hotter than indian ones in my view but very tasty with it. The waiters never seem to write anything down but they don't forget anything either!

I recommend the place for a night out with mate...probably not one for the girlfriend or Mrs though.

Small, very much family-run Nepali restaurant with friendly staff.
Outstanding dishes such as the tandoori chicken masala, king prawn chili masala definitely worth a visit.
Interior a little dowdy, but food is always consistently good.
