It's been a while since we patronized the Himalaya, not too much has changed other than the prices have modestly increased and there are fewer patrons. The buffet table looks about the same, the naan is still delicious and the restaurant now offers samosas with the buffet.

This is an East Indian Restaurant with buffet. Vegetable samosa is one of their best products. The restaurant is spacious and typical East Indian ambience. Not fancy. The smell of spices permeates the entire restaurant but that's ok. That's how East Indian food should be.

We've been to this place before, mostly for the sweets. This time thought of trying the buffet. Now the buffet here might be a good option for lunch but for dinner it was tough to get value out of the stale and bland food. We started with the samosa which was not even warm and or crispy. Chicken was falling... More

We went for dinner buffet with 10yrs and 13yrs kids. They like their curry and it was not too spicy. Samosa is included in buffet, but you need to ask for it. My kids loved their naan.

This is simply your regular Indian food eatery. No wow factor. This place has actually gone downhill ever since he moved to this bigger place. The owner has his moods on some days he is very friendly on others just the opposite. The lady however is always smiling and welcoming. One saving grace.

I've been a patron of this establishment for close to 8 years. My experience is that the quality of food is always consistent and the service staff is always eager to ensure that your table is graced with a generous supply of naan bread (the best naan in metro Vancouver) The buffet selection is somewhat limited in terms of the...

We have been going to this restaurant for over ten years. It is one of the very few indian restaurants in Richmond. The food is authentic,the service is good. Their lunch buffet has lots of choises and a very good value for money.
