I have been to the Himalayan a few times now with family and with friends. It's located in a humble little strip mall, but don't let that fool you - the inside of the restaurant is wonderfully decorated and clean. The food is just awesome....More

This restaurant is always busy and packed as per my comment on excellent food and service so my advice would be to make a reservation then sit back and enjoy! Both Nepalese vegetarian and meat served and you will love any.

The restaurant has a nice ambience and excellent food. Maybe a little bit expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. If you like Indian food, you'll love Nepalese cuisine.

This was our first time, a good friend recommended it. The first time we tried to get in we couldn't because we didn't have a reservation. This place really books up so best to have a reservation.

Unique and delicious menu. Try the Vegetarian MoMo's (aka. Tibetan dumplings) along with the seafood dishes (we shared spicy shrimp and some kind of white fish both smothered in some form of otherworldly curries and spices). I bet everything on the menu was superb -...More
