Description: Himalayas: Indian at its Best where people encounter the real authentic Indian cuisine. We at Himalayas always try to provide our guests a memorable and enjoyable dining experience with mixture of cuisines from India especially from Punjab and Himalayan regions. Himalayas team has unspoiled enthusiasts, who perpetuate the deeply rooted ways of Indian cooking and who aspire to fill the dining room with satisfying aromas. Located in the heart of Christchurch, at 830 A Colombo street North, between Salisbury and Peterborough Street, Himalayas is within easy walking distance central city hotels and motels.Himalayas is back in a brand new building, with new feel and look outside and new decor inside. This is complemented with quality and authentic Indian food, which is definitely a change to people’s usual.

We dined there using a discount voucher in winter, and had to go quite early (we had other things on that night) so it was a very wierd experience. Firstly the restaurant stood alone amongst the ruins of downtown Christchurch, like 'a beacon of hope' (please excuse the trite cliches). But you could imagine the scen in aTarantino movie. Again, dining early and being the ONLY customers was wierd because we felt we were very special. Which felt kind of wrong when we were using a discount voucher so were having a 'cheapy' meal. But the food and service felt like we were paying through the nose. Subtle but delicious fish curries, fragrant rice, and good wine to match. A cut above most Indians in town, I think...

We went to Himalaya on a Tuesday evening on the recommendation of family. We shared samosas for a starter and each had a curry with Naan, which we found to be about the right sized portion. The service was quick and we were finished in just over an hour. Possibly we were lucky as there were two groups , one of 6 diners, the other 10 diners ordering just after us.

The food was excellent. I chose a dish that was on the menu as a recommendation of the chef the kadhai chicken. It was excellent and the spice level was just as requested.

The newly renovated Restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The food and service were excellent. We had 2 vegetarian dishes Palek Paneer and Vege Korma which include rice. Plenty for both of us. Will be back again for sure.
