I have been using this Restaurant for twenty years, we first ate there when we were still in our teens and we have always found the meals to be very filling and fairly priced and the staff have always been very friendly and polite and don't 'fawn' over you, but naturally the owner often has a chat with us. I would recommend the Chicken Kashmiri if you like mild,it's very creamy, and the Buna is great (but can't spell it!) the curries aren't over-complicated but are very satisfactory and the background Nepalese music is calming along with pictures of the mountain range. They've recently changed name but we still call it The Himalayan which suits it well. A lovely friendly Nepalese Restaurant.

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

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.
