“One of Durango's Best Restaurants!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We have eaten at Himalayan Kitchen a number of times and every meal is just delicious. I love their vegetarian menu (and also enjoyed many of the non vegetarian items including the delicious chicken and lamb.

The naan is to die for! You must order a side of it with your meal.

I love the mixture of Nepalese, Tibetan, and Indian cuisines.

“Best Indian restaurant”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Five of us went and all of us loved our meals. An excellent choice for vegetarians. Service was friendly and superb. It was so good that we ate there two nights in a row. We ate dishes we never experienced before. Food was seasoned to perfection. If I lived in Durango, I would be a regular customer.

“Excellent Nepalese food, lunch buffet delicious”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Great food, tons of variety, good service. Lunch buffet is delicious and is my favorite since you can try lots of different things. My 7 yr old enjoys it too. There is a fair amount of dairy used in this type of food, so not ideal if you are dairy intolerant. Some items I've tried on dinner menu are very spicey so be sure to ask.

“Great food”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We took out dinner because we were running late. While waiting for our food, we were offered masala chai. It was fantastic. The food was tasty, not overtly spicy or oily and authentic Nepalese. The price was right. The naan (similar to tortillas but thicker and tastier) was great too. Go for the lunch buffet if you have time. They also have vegan and gluten free options. We we so happy with the place that we returned the next day.

“Great Lunch Buffet”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

My husband & I drove from Ouray to Durango for a day trip and were so happy to find this restaurant. While traveling Montrose and Ouray for several days, we didn't find this kind of restaurants, our choices were American, Italian, or Mexican food, and we were getting tired of heavy food. At this restaurant, we had lunch buffet, around $10, very reasonable, including salad, fruits, deep fried veggies, curry dishes, rice, naan, and dessert. All fresh, well prepared, very tasty and healthy food. The room was very spacious with nice table setting. Service was very efficient and friendly. Highly recommended.
