Visited the Himalayan for lunch and it was very good. The food had good flavor but not too spicy. Extensive menu and a good lunch specials. This restaurant was recommend by our ski instructor as one of his favorites.

The food was excellent. Pure Indian style Momos (Pot Stickers). We had tandoori chicken which was cooked well. All the dishes we had did not contain any artificial colors, this is very rare for the indian dishes we had (Tandoori, Chicken Butter Masala, Paneer Tikka Masala) Ambience is also good and even better was the location.

I am not a big fan of Indian food, but my 8 year old daughter and I thought that we would check this place out. I was surprised with how much we actually liked. The food is delicious! I like the atmosphere and the restaurant was not too crowded when we went. The staff was alright. I was disappointed that... More

Food very disappointing. Don't have the Chicken and spinach - all spinach and little chicken. Also had a lamb dish that was all sauce and no lamb. Service not too good either. Food delivered but no one came to check everything was ok. Premises a bit dismal and dark.

I was married to an Indian guy, I know how to make Indian food... I'm sorry I don't understand how this place has such good reviews. I have never had such a awful food. We ordered simple dishes, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, lamb,Dahl and rice. The tandoori chicken was cut off chunks of thigh, barely any meat pure bone... and... More

Ate here one cold evening at Big Bear after walking around for a while looking for something other than pizza or a burger. There was a warm atmosphere, fantastic service and tasty food, just what we wanted. We ordered Dahl, chicken tikka masala, one rice & one nan to share. Portions were generous and it arrived promptly, the only minor... More

I ordered the chicken tandori lunch combo: salad, chicken tandoori, veggies, naan, rice and lintel soup. The cost was approximately $9. Surprisingly good. Mt friend ordeted... More

The food was good and they were on top of making our glasses of water full at all times. It would have been nice to have a kids menu to make it easier for when you have small children that need to eat as well. Over all decent food.

Stopped for lunch on October 13th - my wife and I are both familiar with Indian and Himalayan food. I had the Lamb Naan roll and my wife had Chicken Tikka Masala. I have to say both were excellent - my only comment is that they could be more generous with the chutney for the Lamb roll - but it... More
