I visited the Himalayan for a work event. Firstly, the staff stayed late for us and were incredibly helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. All authentic and spiced to your liking. Would definitely return again. This place is a hidden gem.

Be prompt! Reservation only from 6 to 8. Reception and service was very good. Appetizers were exceptional-----except found the lamb app. to be a little tough. Had to ask for the Nan bread. Basic but sufficient wine list. The Himalayan cake was exceptional. Definite repeat!...More

The food was so tasty and the service was beyond expectation. I highly recommend this restaurant. Not sure if they still serve their buffet lunch. If they do, don't miss out.
