Unfortunately my wife took ill on holiday so I resorted to a takeaway. I popped into the Himalayan Cafe and was told to order from the restaurant menu (In UK, it is normal practice to have a reduced price menu for takeaway). When i returned...More

I took my vegetarian daughter here for her birthday. She was delighted with the options. I was thrilled with the combination plate which came with lots of naan, rice, lentils, rita, vegetables and the main course for about $15. Much better than when we went...More

I forgot about eating here until I was recently in Pasadena. Walked by, going elsewhere, and remembered this place. This is a bit different style than a sort of Indian type restaurant. Some unusual and different choices. We tried a few things, and all were...More

Late night, a quick meal. Having travelled to this area of the world I knew what the authentic food should taste like. Unfortunately it's been altered to suite a western palate. Totally understandable. So I was disappointed. I have to add in their defence I...More

Our family discovered this restaurant while we were walking around Old Town. A large menu selection, delicious food and nice cozy atmosphere. The momos (vegetable/Chicken) were tasty. Our group also ordered a variety of chicken and vegetarian dishes and everything looked and tasted great. If...More

A very late lunch found us in this neighborhood and we decided to try a restaurant we had never been to. Samosas were crispy, hot, & delicious. The sauce accompanying it might have had a touch of sugar (which I avoid), but the tangy tamarind...More

Delicious! I already enjoy Indian; and the dishes I ordered (I can't remember their names) were not noticeably different to my palate. Their Naan is wonderfully light and chewy and THICK (I've had some that were as thin as tortillas at other places).
