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.

Nan, tika masala, so tasty and fresh. Outdoor seating along with intimate indoor dining. Fresh salmon, lamb, chicken served on sizzling platter with veggies outstanding.

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

This place is small. One small room, four,maybe five tables, with a couple of large tables that you will be sharing with other diners. This gives it a kind of an authentic feel. The staff is friendly and the service prompt. The food is Indian/Nepalese and very good. The portions are what one usually gets at Indian restaurants the prices... More

Great food for a reasonable price in this area (Sonoma is quite the expensive place to go out). The dishes have a good size there is a big choice of different things. A good choice for vegetarians (as most of the time with Indian/Nepali food). Good Lassi, nice staff. I would totally recommend eating there if you are in the... More

There are more then one Nepali/Indian food around Sonoma. I have tried all of them and they are all okay but when I crave Nepali/Indian food, Taste of Himalayas is my favorite place to go. I often go there for lunch and dinner and I feel relaxed and calm when I eat here. Staff is amazing they are sweet and... More

Wandering around historic Sonoma plaza, we wandered down an alley looking for a lunch spot and encountered this restaurant. We shared some salmon curry and naan. The food was tasty but sharing the lunch portion would not be sufficient if you are hungry. The staff, possibly owner, was attentive and very friendly, and provided some rice pudding when we mentioned... More

I'm a big fan of Idean/Nepalese food. This is a little restaurant that delivers great tasting food, friendly service and reasonable prices. The lamb dumpling and Samosa are great appetizers and I'm a huge fan of the Masala Tikka Curry whether chicken or lamb. The owners are a very nice young couple from Nepal that seem to love to engage... More

First time I have Himalayan food! Great place! Wonderful aromas as you get in! Very tasty food! Typical music and very good price! My brother and I had Lamb Momo (8 steamed lamb dumplings, tomato chutney - USD 9) as appetizer and it was great! As entrees he had Kukhra Chana (aromatic boneless chicken- dark meat - and garbanzo beans... More

On our first night in Sonoma, we walked to the town square and down a passage to the courtyard where this restaurant and a couple of others are located. There was no hostess visible, but one of the patrons pointed out who to ask for a table. While we were there other people simply sat down and waited to be... More
