The food was very decent. Had nihari which was very very good albeit it a little on the spicy side. However, the charming man serving us was obviously dealing with some sort of a crisis of existence. The menus were tossed down on the table in front of us, the order was taken with a frown that would scare even... More

We chose a busy time, around 1pm on a Sunday. There was only one waiter who was doing a great job but he did not have time to advise or explain the menu and just needed us to order quickly. We ordered samosas and a biryani to share. We were told we must order two entrees. This was too much... More

Excellent Indian food.  We ate here with some friends and all got different plates. The chicken hara masala was excellent, but spicy. They say it's medium but that's Indian medium which is American spicy.   My wife got the chicken boti kabob and that was also great. It was definitely milder.  Get this if you want something not so saucy, it's... More

This was some of the best Indian food I have ever had outside of London. Actually it is a Pakistani restaurant but the food is very similar. They do not have alcohol, so if you want that you must bring your own. There are not a lot of liquor stores nearby and the area traffic is fierce, so I picked... More

I love Indian and Middle Eastern food. When trying a new restaurant it's tough to figure out what to get. Their lunch special has a very good assortment. I got to try 3 meats and a couple of sides. All of it was delicious and a great amount of food. Excellent way to sample a range of their food. Service... More

My wife an I enjoy trying new restaurants in the "Houston Chronicle Top 100" and are willing to explore ethnic cuisine which we really appreciate. We tried Himalaya for the first time as it serves Indian food, one of our favorites. We also were able to BYOB here as there is no alcohol served. The owner recommended the Steak Tikka... More

Their mutton biriyani was tasting good and it had very good aroma, the meat was tender also the raita they served was a bit different from ususal raita's.... More

Horrible service. Worse owner. The owner actual forced us to get up and pay when we were still eating because he wanted the table for other people. Well maybe if your service was decent a didn't take 20 minutes to bring water or take our orders, you would have had your table sooner. Not to mention the table of 10... More
