You have to try the chai martini and the taita and garlic naan to start..... then follow with the Sherpa stew and the shrimp with coconut milk on the specialties. Loved it!

I will start off by saying that the food here is AMAZING. It has advertised itself as a fusion of Indian, Nepalese and Tibetian cuisine and had items from the 3 sections of that sub continent. We had the Lamb Curry and a portion of Vegetable Curry with rice and a piece of Naan. The staff brought us complimentary Papadom... More

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.
