We had an excellent meal, mildly spiced chicken (two kinds), eggplant, veg korma, veg pakora, raita and the obligatory wine and mango lassi! Using restaurant.com coupon, the bill for 5 was $100, Not the center of town, but parking is easy next door.

I came here for a poetry reading event in a small room at the back of the restaurant. The ambiance was plain and the noise coming in from the kitchen and main restaurant room was distracting. The food was okay but the service was excellent!

I took my son (a recent UC Berkeley grad) to lunch here -- the second time for both of us. Himalayan Flavors again did not disappoint. Everything we have had has been delicious. It's now on our list of "favorites" for Berkeley visits.

I don't know, but I do not think so. It would be possible, as there are several halal markets in the area. I know that it is not kosher, as they serve meat with milk, but I don't think they have pork on the menu.
