We are in the US for. 5 weeks and we had intended reviewing restaurants at the end of our trip, but would make exceptions for excellent or terrible.
Sorry to say this was the latter. We have never eaten Nepalese food before but took note of the good reviews here and on the door of the restaurant from the Durango Herald and Pasedena Star. The latter championed the yak.
Now, like most people yak had not appeared on a menu we had had so it had to be tried. Yak stew with potatoes and various spices sounded very authentic. Unfortunately it was 5 pieces of tough meat and three quarters potato. Oh, and for some reason there was half a pear with recurrent jelly (that was nice). The garlic nan had virtually no garlic. The other dish we had was lamb korma. Normally, in the UK at least, this is cooked very slowly and thus well done and tender. Here it was mainly pink with some pieces tender and others quite tough, but not as tough as the yak.
We tried 3 other restaurants in Durango, all of which were far superior to this one.
We loved Durango, it is a super small (we guess you would call it mid-west) town and we will try to return, but Himalayan Kitchen will not be on our list.
