Great service. Fresh, flavourful food. Nice atmosphere. Make sure you make a reservation as this place is tiny and always busy.

In times of economic hard times, they have the winning recipe, quality food at an affordable price...which is why reservations are tight, reserve well ahead, you will not be disappointed...

The food was excellent. The service was amazing. The waiter took time to learn my tastes of food (spicy) and cater his recommendation to my love of spice. Also, he brought me out some spicy sauce to sample - which then the chefs added to my dish. Great food and amazing service!

I dined here with a friend one Saturday evening, and we were so pleasantly surprised by this little gem of a restaurant in an unassuming strip mall. From the gracious and attentive staff, to the fresh and tasty food offerings, our experience was delightful. It's not hard to see why this place is so popular. I recommend reservations, especially on... More

It was always very busy and we don't tend to plan ahead enough to make reservations which seems is pretty much mandatory for this restaurant. We dropped by just when they opened one Sunday night and we managed to get a table. From the outside... More

Stepping into The Himalayan Restaurant recently in November, seemed to us like a brief excursion into the mysterious culture of Nepal. This clean, tiny, busy restaurant, located in a strip mall in southwest Calgary is beautifully and exotically decorated, cozy and dimly lit, with flickering candles inviting you to the table. This popular spot is crowded and definitely in demand,... More
