At 7.40pm I was surprised to find the Himalaya packed to the gunnels. "Have you booked?' we were asked to the obvious amusement of those diners sat nearest the door. We hadn't. The restaurant had come highly recommended; the aroma of the food was appealing and looked to be worth the wait for a table. We were advised that we... More

I have been To the Himalaya many times and enjoyed many different dishes from the menu. The restaurant has been refurbished completely and is modern looking with good lighting. The food is always consistent and tasty. The menu has the usual dishes as all Indian restaurants have with a good selection of not so common dishes like Jontor Montor or... More

There is a wide choice on menu depending on tastes. I've eaten here several times and enjoy it. Pick your time to visit as match days and weekend evenings can get super busy. Prices are reasonable so would rate against more expensive Indians in area definitely.

I haven't been to the Himalaya for many years as I moved away from Cardiff. I do, however, remember it as one of the first good Indian restaurants in Cardiff and used to go there quite often. Visited there on Saturday during a stay to visit family and found it nothing special. Just an average run of the mill Indian... More

There was a time when you could turn up without booking but to do do now risks missing a great curry. The restaurant has been going for 46 years and is better than ever. A friendly small restaurant which never fails to impress with quality at affordable prices - the take away is great value which is great for a... More

In a party of four, I tried out their chicken jalfrezi, and was not disappointed. It was made with chunks of peppers and onions with whole chillies as its supposed to be. The staff have a good sense of humour, and we all had a good time. We've actually been going there for over thirty years, though I don't believe... More

My absolute favourite indian dish, is a Lamb Saag (Lamb and Spinach curry) and the Himalaya Tandoori has so far produced my favourite version of this dish. The restaurant itself is small but smart, excellent for an evening out with friends or family.
