“Cheap & cheerful but oh so very good”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

So long as you drop any expectations of a fine dining experience, the Himalayan Char Grill is a real gem. A small restaurant, with a kitchen so small you wonder how the staff can turn out the meals, in a fairly drab suburban shopping centre, you could be forgiven for walking right past without giving it a second look. Fool you, if you do.

The food is very flavoursome and the servings generous enough. The lamb backstrap is a lovely dish but if you want a real melt-in-the-mouth meal it has to be the beef cheek. Service is friendly and very attentive.

Prices are OK. At first blush some would suggest that $20 for a main is a bit steep. That hesitation is put to rest as soon as you sample the food!

Just accept that you aren't there for the view...

“Consistently good food”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

This is our regular takeaway. Probably order once or twice a fortnight, we love it. Lamb shanks are devine as is the sesame chicken. Haven't eaten in house yet but do plan to.

“Excellent Nepalese Food - Good Service”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

Good tasty food. I can especially recommend the lamb shanks. Not very spicy but full of flavour. Friendly cheerful service. Many who dine there seem to be regulars which is always a good sign.
