I liked the buffet, but I wish the food would have more flavor. I only ate the vegetarian items. Clean restaurant and the food is fresh! So it was a good visit overall.

My husband and I got the Buffet and loved it. A wide variety of dishes and flavors. Everything looked and tasted very fresh. The restaurant atmosphere is pleasant and the service is prompt. We will go back to try out the dinner menu.

They have the best currys and Indian/Himalayan food I have ever had. The Lamb is my favorite, and whatever way you order it, it's SOOoo.. GOOD!

It has been quite some time (years) since we’ve found food this authentic and good. We ordered the paneer matar and the chicken vindaloo. They were both yummy. I just wished I had saved room for their award winning kheer.

Himalayan Kitchen offers a unique menu of Nepalese specialties. It’s an adventure. You will not be disappointed! Try the curried lamb or lamb sang. Ask for extra spice ... whoo-eee!
