“A Family Favourite for Years”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We have been eating at the Himalayan (as we still call it) for years now. You can be sure of getting an excellent spread at reasonable prices. The Nepalese owner is a delightful man and very much involved with charitable work in his home community. It's a small room and often packed at weekends. Other restaurants in Henley have come and gone - but this one seems to sail along for ever, much to our delight!

“I am a professor of food!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is not an Indian restaurant, it is a real Nepalese with food cooked to order. Any of the Nepalese dishes that you choose will be authentic and beautifully crafted.

“Friendly but bland.”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Pleasant and friendly service but very ordinary food. My Dhansak was so bland it was difficult to say what it was. My experience is places with a low Asian population rarely have decent curry houses: QED!

“Best value for money in Henley”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Now called the Mountain View Kitchen, we eat here regularly. I have never once seen the menu, but rather the delightful owner just asks us what combination of chicken or lamb we'd like, and if we want mild, medium or spicy. He then brings us a bountiful spread of curry, vegetables, tandoori chicken, rice and naan. All for £9.95, or bring it up to around £13 if you fancy a massive Nepalese beer. This is authentic, simple and fantastically tasty food, with quality, personal service to match. You will never go hungry at Mountain View Kitchen, and the staff are always willing to tweak the food if it comes out a little too mild or spicy for your tastes. Can not recommend this place enough, especially if you are sick of the bland chain restaurants that Henley mostly offers. Also does takeaway.

“Authentic Nepalese cuisine for competitive prices.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

My tarka dal was only £3.95; not only was their plenty of it but it was delicious. The service was extremely friendly and we did not expect to find such good Indian and Nepalese cuisine in Henley upon Thames! I thoroughly recommend this place!
