“Very good food, always reliable”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Having eaten at Himalaya 5 or 6 times now, it must be said that the service isn't always top notch, it can be noisy, but you can be assured that the food will always be good, served quickly and piping hot, and the bill at the end is not going to break the bank.
The must-haves are momos, vegetarian samosas, fish tikka, the okra dry-curry and a tamarind-dressed potato salad whose name escapes me. Dishes are simply presented and speak for themselves, and work well against a pint of ice cold beer.
The weekday lunch buffet is also great value for money.

“A different Indian experience”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

6 of us turned up for a meal last night with out reservations but got a table no problem.

Nice atmosphere, have to say the menus are not the easiest to read with the combination of plastic covers, lighting and dark print. Not a major issue.

The selection was great and the food very tasty. A great selection for vegetarians.

Service was fine, but a little odd, 5 of us had bottles of water. Near the end of the meal the staff took the empty bottles away but topped all the glasses up with the one or two bottles that still had water in them. I guess it was assumed water was a communal item rather than for the individuals as some felt a bit cheated at the end of the meal.

Overall a good place to eat and would go back.

“Ignore the negative reviews this place is good”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

When reading other wishy washy reviews for restaurants I often wonder what planet reviewers come from for the prices they pay expecting mega Ritz type standards.We were a table of 14 who arrived in dribs abd drabs till ready to order. OK the meal was served with some gaps between courses and dishes - like rice coming after main course, but who cares - we had a great night - when we asked for more of anything it was brought rapidly - beer orders came fast and furious. Quality was fine = portion sizes were good, everything was clean no complaints except maybe the popodums could have more generous sauces/pickles but the samosas were excellent and the naan selection was first class.
All in all it was a great night for all of us.

“Great value fresh food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Always busy but good friendly service. Great VfM and a good variety of vegetarian dishes. Steps up to the restaurant make it difficult for those with disabilities
