Momos are worth trying but surprised to see that they were served with a sweet sauce! However, they replaced it with a spicy one. Funniest thing was Peshwari naan sweetness, they added sugar. I don't understand why these complicated options were added in menu when you lack expertise or no available ingredients. Little knowledge is dangerous thing. People are kind,... More

Nothing fancy, rather traditional. It's like going to Nepal, with the beautiful murals and himalayan music on the background, it brings out the taste of the dishes

The food, mixed tandoori and Vindaloo, was OK but not anything special. Average taste, average price, Ok service.

This is definitely not a traditional Indian - Nepalese place. Food is bland and the curries are not authentic. Toned down on spices and flavour. Rather forgettable and unexciting experience with the food. Service was good. Priced a little less than the other Nepalese-Indian restaurants around. Outdoor seating available.

We ordered the vegi thali and the avial. The delicious food was prepared on time and it was enough for the two of us. Not too spicey for europeans. Thanks a lot!

The restaurant is located near the train station. The interior is a bit dark and traditional with huge paintings of the Himalaya. The food is nicely presented with different sets of tests accompanying every dish. I appreciated the light preparations compared to indian food I had in many other restaurants.

We went to this restaurant to have a quick lunch on Friday. The place was completely empty at 12h and during the lunch only 2 other tables got occupied. The interior is incredibly kitch (some people would probably say 'authentic'). I though there was a fusty smell, but my company thought it was the scent of nice food. Service was... More

Visited Himalaya with friends on the final evening of a trip to Leuven. We were all very impressed with the warm welcome we received, the stunning décor, the diversity of dishes on the menu and the excellent quality of the food. In summary I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for high quality Nepali and Indian cuisine in... More
