We was a party of 5 we booked the table for a Tuesday evening and the place was packed. The service and knowledge they gave us was very good. We all had different meals and crossed tasted, all was excellent. Good choice of drinks an added bonus Please try the fish, best i have had.

I've been a fan for many years. The decor is ethnic/modern. It feels very warm and inviting. The owner is very welcoming and truly wants your experience to be the best. The food is superb. We usually share the meals, Himalayan grill(lamb), butter chicken and chau-chau ( a vegetarian noodle dish, unless you want to add shrimp or meat). This... More

Our first time having Nepali food, we found it to be an interesting mix of East Indian and Chinese flavors. The waiter was great at explaining our meal to us and the service was just the right pace.

We've eaten at the Himalayan many times, take out and eat in. The service is always fast and friendly, and the food is delish! The only negative is that we miss the lunch buffet!

Excellent and authentic food. The momos (dumplings) are incredible, and you cannot go wrong on the noodle dishes. Service can be a bit neglectful, but the food makes up for the wait!

This restaurant gets an A++++. The dishes are delicious and service is spectacular. I will go back in a heart beat. It is a busy place so reservations during peak times seem necessary. We had an appetizer, two dishes and ice cream for dessert. The Vegetable Mo:Mo to start (which was good but probably wouldn't order again), the Kathmandu Vegetables,... More

I think this restaurant is little bit over rated. Food was good but very heavy to digest. There are many other better Indian restaurants in Calgary.

Amazing restaurant , fantastic food ! Really good service , the only problem is that for tall people and little bigger people it is very tight sitting space . I am 6'2" and it made me feel like my table we got was not big enough for us to sit comfortable . Mango pudding desert really tasty and different flavour... More

This was my favourite lunch buffet, but, unfortunately they've closed down this service now. I've had dinner there twice or three times and the food is awesome! It quite reminds one of East Indian cuisine, but, it really tastes quite different too. Well worth a try with family, friends, couples or business.

Amazing food, beautifully prepared, reminiscent of both southeast Asian and Indian food, but very uniquely its own cuisine. A must-try!
