We love this cuisines, Tibetan, Himalayan, northern Indian- this was 5 stars! Great family owns it- warm feel an amazing smells when you walk in. Daal soup is awsome, garlic naan, lamb rack tandoori !!!! Loved it! And awesome flavors of the chicken coco masala- We can't wait to return and what a great experience.

Five adults (German and American), outdoor seating, happily indulging in curries, naan, himalayan salads, beer, and the welcoming outdoor air just off the Sonoma central plaza. The restaurant is small, simple, welcoming, and offers great food at very affordable prices. For us, this Taste of the Hinalayas was a wonderful lunch break in our Sonoma day!

I was so surprised to see people examine the menu and keep walking. We sat inside to escape the heat and had wonderful Saag Paneer with Jasmine Rice, Papad and Naan, complimentary Daal and a chickpea dish whose name escapes me. Iced tea was perfect. We felt full, healthy and happy. So glad we didn't go to the Irish Pub... More

After checking out the menu, we weren't disappointed in their offerings. I had the salmon tandoori and my wife had chicken tandoori. Both dishes came with generous helpings of meat, vegetables, rice and naan. Each was deliciously prepared and served hot. The service was efficient, but not hurried. Location was fun, as you had to travel down an alley from... More

We keep returning to Taste of Himalayas in Sonoma. The lunch menu is a great bargain. For $ 13 you can get delicious lamb tandoori with vegetables, soup/Dahl, rice and nan/bread. Also available are chicken, salmon and vegetarian dishes. The waiter is usually the owner and he makes sure you are happy. The setting is quite casual. We like to... More

Looked for a nice place for lunch while stopping through downtown Sonoma. Been here before so it's our 2nd time. No disappointment. Visited on a weekday: parked off the downtown square, short walk; not busy, sat outside patio with no wait. Excellent Himalayan/Indian food, great friendly service. Walked to local parlor on the square for ice cream before the drive... More

Friendly, warm service, good nan and curries, pakora, salad, aloo cauli, and saag paneer all very good; the staff's warmth and kindness set these restaurants (one in Napa also) apart. From mild to very spicy-hot, there are delicious dishes for any palate.

I have been born and raised in Sonoma, currently 22 years old, and I can say that since I could remember, Taste of the Himalayas is by far my favorite restaurant. I've visited it for everything on their menu at one point or another and over the years their food has just gotten better (also if you like spicy, this... More
