We really enjoyed Himalayan Heritage! Small but very attractive restaurant with friendly, if a bit shy, staff. The menu is focused on Tibetan food which provides an enjoyable variation to Indian, but with many of the same qualities. My daughter is vegetarian and found a myriad of offerings to enjoy. We started with the steamed dumplings as an appetizer, which... More

An attractive spot, notwithstanding the incense (not overwhelming at least, but for those of us who are not fans, distracting). Service peculiar: patrons clustered together despite mostly empty tables. Waitress had no idea about wines; couldn't explain dishes. Bill brought the minute the plates were removed--for no reason, given the lack of patrons (no one waiting for a table in... More

I used to visit every Tibetan restaurant in the United States and taste native foods whenever I get a chance... I don't expect perfection but I don't accept failure either... this restaurant is good in almost everything but it was not a place for authentic foods. Just momo alone, it's made with Chinese ready made dough ... but it's worth... More

Despite how much really I like their food, I will NEVER order from this place again. Took em 95 minutes and the delivery.com agent said the restaurant was unwilling to offer any kind of credit, saying they were very busy. I called the restaurant at 55 minutes after the order was placed and was told it was out for delivery.... More

This seems to be the main Nepalese option in town, and a friend was craving momos, so we decided to give it a shot. It's a well-decorated restaurant behind a simple facade (you wouldn't know how nice it is just from walking by), and we had the place basically to ourselves on a cold weeknight, which was nice, but also...

Order takeout from here and thought it was decent. Curry dishes could have been a little more flavorful. Also took almost 1.5 hours to deliver.

I enjoyed trying the different cuisine here. Similar to Indian with it's own twist. The best part if this restaurant is it is a great value. I'll be going back to try some more dishes I never had. I didn't give it 5 stars because my dish which included lamb in it could have been more tender and the service... More

We had guests in town and decided to be adventurous. The restaurant is small, but cozy. The decor projects an authentic flair that many establishments in the area sometimes lack. We were seated promptly, but not rushed to order. Our choices were diverse from Momos to lamb shank, but it was all well-prepared and delicious. We are avid Indian cuisine... More

OK food, but terrible service. My food had not been delivered after an hour and a half so I called them. The guy who answered said that it was being delivered, and would be another 30-45 minutes (the guy claimed that it had been less than an hour). He then put a woman on the phone who said that I...

Himalayan Heritage has long been one of my absolute favorite restaurants in DC. The restaurant has an enormous variety of Indian and Nepalese dishes to choose from for vegetarians and meat/fish lovers alike. Dishes containing nuts and/or gluten-free are clearly marked on the menu. For someone like me who can only handle the most mild dishes, it's thrilling when menu... More
