It has been quite some time (years) since we’ve found food this authentic and good. We ordered the paneer matar and the chicken vindaloo. They were both yummy. I just wished I had saved room for their award winning kheer.

Himalayan Kitchen offers a unique menu of Nepalese specialties. It’s an adventure. You will not be disappointed! Try the curried lamb or lamb sang. Ask for extra spice ... whoo-eee!
