Everything was great. We really weren't sure what to expect in Big Bear. One of the best Indian we've been to (and that's many). We had lamb curry and tandori chicken, both excellent. Also had garlic naan and basmati rice. Again great. Portions are big too, took some to our hotel.

Great service, easy parking in the big bear village lot or on the street.

This place is wonderful, absolutely the best Northern Indian food I've ever had. There are enough items on the menu to keep anyone coming back for days. The food is prepared to perfection, and the service is great. Himalayan is located in the heart of the village at Big Bear Lake and is a must for any visitor.

We LOVE the Himalayan. My husband didn't even know he liked Indian food until we went here and he's been addicted ever since. It likely contributed to our decision to move here. Try palak paneer, the veggie roll, alsloo mattar, chicken masala and the garlic naan. You won't regret it.

Decided to have dinner here. We hadn't had Indian food before and decided to try some. The service was nice, the food delicious and spicy. Our server was very helpful in recommending some dishes. I can't remember what we ordered but it was all very tasty. I would highly recommend this place.

Although we have tried many Indian restaurants, this was the first time that we had ever had "Nepalese Indian" food. The food was definitely delicious. It is kind of similar to most Indian food that we have tried; however, it is not as heavy and not greasy at all. The spices that they use seem to be a bit different than the regular Indian restaurant and they give us a lot of food. My husband and I ordered three dishes and they were enough for two meals and then some.

On top of the good food, the waiters and waitress (appeal to be from the same family) were VERY friendly and checked on us quite a few times to make sure that we had everything we needed.

I strongly recommend this restaurant if anybody is going to Big Bear Lake for any reasons.
