“Years of deliciousness”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We have been eating regularly at the Himalayan for 5 years. While the food keeps bringing us back, it is also the value and the friendliness of the family-run business/service. We even had our wedding reception there a couple years ago.

The food is always fresh and delicious. We found consistently good Asian cuisine hard to come by until the Himalayan. We occasionally try other places and then ask why we wasted money when it is not as good as what we are used to at the Himalayan. Every dish we have ever tried has always been cooked to order, very fresh, and full of all the right flavors. One of the standout best qualities of the Himalayan is that nothing has those fake, outrageous colors that many Asian food places have. It is refreshing to know that what you're eating is natural and not touched up with unnecessary things to suit some expectation. While some reviews say the food is bland, I have never had such an experience (even when they got a new cook in, I think, 2010).

Value is also one of the big draws. The weekday deal means 2 people can eat for £20, which is exceptional for the quality of the food. We often don't eat everything given to us and they are always happy to pack it up for us to take home. We love the Himalayan and will continue to go there for years to come.

“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!
