“Nice, friendly, Nepalese restaurant”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Himalaya is always a safe choice. Very nice and good food and friendly no-nonsense service. Had the Kukhura Vindaloo which was excellent and exactly as spicy as promised. Highly recommended.

“Good nepalese food”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Good nepalese food, nice service offered by the nepalese guys working in this little restaurant. The place gave an inpression of cleansiness. Excellent breadcase (hot bread). Didn't offer anything so special to remember it, but offered a decent restaurantexperience. Location a bit off from the citycenter.

“Great Food - Variable Service”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

This restaurant does great Nepalese food! I had the Khukura Chicken Masala - large chunks of tender chicken with bamboo shoots, fenugreek and mushrooms in a truly gorgeous chilli/garlic/ginger sauce. Al the ingredients were clearly very fresh and cooked beautifully. Rice, raita and a fantastic naan were included in the price of about EUR15. Great value - great food.

There were 2 waiting staff on duty - one a very friendly older chap with smiling eyes and a great demeanour who gave excellent service. Unfortunately the other was a trendy looking young man with a brutal haircut and a sneering attitude. He also forget to get my bill when i asked - luckily enough old smily eyes passed by a little later.

I know everyone says this but i eat in Indian and Nepalese restaurants around the world and would highly recommend this to any other spicy connoisseurs out there :)
