“An Excellent Dining Experience”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Staying near by we tried the restaurant on spec. We were pleasantly surprised by great service and the tasty food. Finished up with owners daughter showing us how to play the Nepalese bells? Highly recommended and I hope to visit again when next in Adelaide.

“A gem of a restaurant!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Unlike other restaurants that are hectic with rushed service and staff bustling in and out of the kitchen, this restaurant is terrific at preserving the peaceful and homely atmosphere guests are enveloped in upon closing the door behind them.

The food is as impeccable as their service; such a hearty welcome and dining on meals that tickle your taste buds with rich flavours. I have never been disappointed with the menu; being a 'flexitarian', the vegetarian dishes are equally amazing as their meat dishes. Speaking of which, their goat curry is sinfully delicious!

It's also fun, post dinner, to play their singing bowls! Again, it offers you more than a peek into their culture and overall, The Himalayan Kitchen is a fantastic restaurant to go to; whether it'd be an intimate, or family dinner, all is welcome nonetheless. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic little find!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Decided to go here on short stay overnight in North Adelaide based on tripadvisor/urbanspoon reviews. Greeted by sweet daughter of the owners who showed us to our seat. Service was relaxed but attentive, food was FANTASTIC, flavoursome, light and varied. Wine options were great and the value was superb. Go!

“Unique welcome”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

It's not just a meal you get at Himalayan Kitchen, it's a cultural experience. And not in a donkey way for tourists. These people welcome you as though you are traveling through an Himalayan village and they are welcoming you into their home for the evening.
I love going there. As a vegetarian, there is more than enough choice for me and it's all deliciously spicy. I especially enjoy the Tibetan treasures, filled dumpling delicacies.
If you like Indian or Asian food, try this amazing, unique Nepalese restaurant. You won't be disappointed
