My son suggested this place, and at first I was a bit unsure if I would like the food and the pictures of the outside weren't doing this place any justice. Once we were seated comfortably we looked thru the menu and being unsure of what to order we decided on the Banquet. Sensational food and good serving sizes a... More

People rave about this place, so I guess I was expecting something really special. My meal wasn't too bad but it certainly wasn't memorable enough for me to rush back.

The food was very tasty and filling. Service was ok but at times it was hard to get someone's attention to get more rice or water. Staff are friendly and the food is worth the visit. Will be back again.

The food is absolutely excellent! Tasty, different and great portion sizes. The staff are friendly and helpful. Despite being very busy the service was very quick. Really enjoyed our dinner here.

Stormy weather stopped us from travelling to the Gold Coast to celebrate a family member's birthday. Never mind! The Himalayan Cafe swooped in and provided our unique and thoroughly enjoyable evening instead. We loved the menu, in-particular the breads and Sherpa chicken. The lentil soup and stir fried veges were also outstanding.

We got a banquet which was well priced. Food was amazing. We had trouble working out the menu, but eventually we just ordered and it was totally worth it. The seating out the back was a surprise and made the night just a little more exciting!

After many years of eating at this restaurant (including take away) tonight's meal was way below average. The tofu dish and noodles which is a regular for us was disappointing to say the least. We can spend our money anywhere but choose to do so here because we have always been assured of a tasty reasonably priced meal..whoever was in... More

Reasonably priced, good quality food. Looks dim from the outside but authentic decor with a chilled vibe inside. Service was good and food was tasty and served hot!

Ordered the goat, all meat dishes were dry and basically just meat and rice. Not much in the way of vegetables. My friend does not eat rice and was expecting to have some vegies when she ordered the pesto chicken but was just a bowl of diced chicken in sauce, so was left hungry. Service was slow and 2 tables... More

Stumbled across here while staying at a backpackers around the corner. Such beautiful vegetarian food and very peaceful set up. It was a very special experience eating next to the Buddha! So highly recommend, even if just for one :)
