“Amazing Food!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We have been to the Himalaya several times in the 3 years we have lived in Germany and absolutely love this restaurant! The menu has a wide variety of meals, but my favorites are as follows: Garlic Chicken, Banana Chicken, and Pumpkin Chicken dishes. These are not the names on the menu, but the menu is in English. The service can be slow, but don't forget they are making all of these recipes from scratch. This is not a fast food restaurant, so don't go with the plan to leave within 30 minutes. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something unique and absolutely delicious!

“Fabulous Fare From The Top Of The World”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

We have been wanting to go here since we arrived in Germany last July. We were intrigued by the chance to dine at an ethnic restaurant offering the cusine from the top of the world.

The menu was chock full of many types of dishes. There was lots to choose from. We were expecting mainly vegetarian dishes but were pleasantly surprised to see many meat dishes as well. Chicken, lamb and even some pork was available.

The restaurant was cozy and clean. I noticed some of the chairs were a bit rickety but they managed to hold me up even if the chair I was in wiggled a bit when I moved. The decorations were definately of Tibatan and Nepalese origin although they may have snuck in a few pieces from the Indian subcontinent. No matter. I feel it was tastefully done.

At first only one waiter was working the dining room. This resulted on a longer than normal wait for service. The extra time was acceptable but it was apparent they needed the extra help that eventually showed up.

The food we ordered was flavorful and appealing to the eye. I caution you that if you order your meal spicy it will, indeed, be spicy. Overall it was a pleasant experience and we will return here in the future.

“Great food, even if a little slow/pricey”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

That being said, Thursday nights are $1=1 Euro (CASH ONLY), so that's a huge boost in value. Food sometimes takes a while (half hour or more after ordering, with drinks sometimes 10-15 minutes to get to the table), but the quality is always fantastic and the service very friendly. Not a regular spot, but definitely a great stop for special occasions.

“amazing nepalese and tibetan food”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in the Kaiserslautern area. Very similar to India Palace. When the menu says 'spicy,' it means it. If they still have it, the pumpkin curry is wonderful.
