“Food is great! Decor is VERY basic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We were thrilled to find a dining choice that wasn't Mexican or American food or pizza in Big Bear. We were even more thrilled to find that Himalaya's food was delicious. We had the chicken tikka masala, the vindaloo curry fish and the Gaelic naan. All of it was excellent. The decor leaves something to be desired, and a number of the items we wanted to order from the menu were not available, but all in all, the restaurant was very satisfying.

“Huge disapointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Went here because of good reviews. The chicken tasted like dried out El Pollo Loco.
The mixed grill was dried out as well. Rice and lentil soup not good either. Not sure what the problem was or how this place was ever highly rated

“Hit the spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

After a long day of hiking, this food tasted like heaven. Pretty healthy if you don't order anything fried. The mixed grill was impressive and the chicken saag was bursting with flavor.
In a town of ehhhhhh food, this place was a pleasant surprise.

“My picky wife loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

There is a lot to select from the menu. My wife is on a vegetarian diet and this fit the bill perfectly! The quality of the food and the portions were good. The breads we ate were all great, especially the onion naan. Of the restaurants we ate in Big Bear, this was by far and away the best . . . and the prices were reasonable! My son complained after he ate too much for dinner and declared he was fasting the next day . . . the next day came and he ate lunch here again as well as our leftovers later!
