Had an okay lunch at Taste of the Himalayas this week. Curries were okay and the rice was well cooked but the naan was not good. The service was good though.

They seem to have goat curry or goat and rice, a great dish. I enjoy the garlic naan and the samosas. Always helpful, but come in a group, dishes are generous and it is more fun to share.

After so many days, I was able to find one restaurant with authentic Indian taste, and it was great. Tried mutter paneer, and vegetable biryani and I would say that the chef did justice to the taste. Loved this place.

Went with family for dinner. Good space and ambience. Interior done with Nepalese décor and is run by Himalayans too. Loved flavour of goat curry, taste of chicken with Indian styled bread ( naan) and rice. Reasonable rates too. Would love to dine again

This was our 2nd visit to Berkeley and we again dined at Taste... It was again outstanding. The vegetarian Mo-mo's were great and on par with those we ate in Kathmandu. Would highly recommend!

I have been going to this restaurant for years, and it is a treasure! Over time, I've sampled many, if not most, of the items on the menu, and have been delighted with them all! On my most recent visit, with an Indian-American friend, who...More
