Back in Durango, trying new places. My buddy and I had seen this place the first week we were here, but never got around to trying it out. We weren't going to miss that chance this time. We started off with the chicken Mo-Mo (dumplings, similar to pot stickers). The waitress had said they were the best ones so we... More

Excellent treat. Right downtown on Main St. Got two entrées: Sherpa Stew and Thengtuk with yak and unusual pasta like dumplings. Stew was outstanding and the yak was very tender. Most of the menu is Indian food so take advantage of a place that actually serves Himalayan.

We tried a variety of different dishes, including yak, lamb and salmon. All were very different and delicious in taste. Service was excellent and prices most reasonable.

Great meal, very good service, and good value. We tried the HK based on local advice, TripAdvisor reviews, and some comments in Yelp. I'm pleased that all those comments were validated. Our meal started with Kankra Salad (see the menu for details). Very refreshing. The menu doesn't mention it but there's a slight taste of brine, as though the salad... More

After driving into Durango from Albuquerque, my boyfriend and I were hungry. We headed downtown, and Indian cuisine sounded good. I was immediately taken with the décor, even outside. We were greeted and sat, by a friendly staff. We had chai, and an appetizer, which was amazing. We ordered a main dish to share, and we were not disappointed. Truly... More

The Nan this year was especially good. Soft on top and crispy on the bottom. All the Currys we ordered were amazing, both the lamp and chicken are recommended. Give it a try.

Good rainy Durango day made for the perfect backdrop for lunch at the Himalayan Kitchen. We enjoyed the buffet for a taste of everything. Topped off our meal with a delicious pot of hot Chai tea.

Lovely restaurant in the busy downtown area of Durango. Nice selection of food from Yak dumplings to vegetarian samosas.It was a nice family atmosphere, the food was great, the service was good, and the masala chia was perfect for a chilly evening.

Overall good food, unusual, clean and well appointed restaurant with buffet. Really more like a 3.6. from a critical reviewer. Went in with my two adult sons for lunch mid week half hour before closing. Buffet looked very like a typical Indian buffet with about 6 selections. Nice but we wanted to try something new, understanding a lot of Nepali... More
