Excellent service. Excellent food. We got a few things to share as a group of four. Basically everything is great. We got an additional order of garlic naan cause it was so delicious. All the meat and fish and curries were flavourful. The ambience is great for a cozy night together. The chai is amazing as well as the mango dessert. Highly recommended!

I've eaten at this restaurant and ordered take out multiple times in the last few years we've lived in the area and I've never, ever had a bad meal. The service is always amazing and attentive, and we are huge fans of their semi-recent renovations. Classy and unfussy and even though the restaurant is busy, you can still have a normal conversation with your party without having to yell or talk loudly. We recently hosted a birthday dinner here with family and it was a hit with everyone. It's a shame they stopped serving their lunch buffet... it was one of the best in the city in my opinion!

The dishes are reasonably priced and of excellent quality. We have stopped going to the nearest Indian restaurant (with slightly pretentious service) ever since we re-discovered The Himalayan...our usual spot quoted us 1.5 hours for takeout, at 5 PM! We really wanted a few curries and naan that day so we called The Himalayan, which quoted us a 15 minute pick up. Tasting the difference in quality, we haven't been back to the old place since. The unpretentious and friendly service at The Himalayan made the switch even easier.

Parking is a little tricky in the strip mall where this restaurant is located because there are quite a few other shops and the area is small. I recommend parking in the neighbourhood or in the nearby underground paid parking facility (in the Q107 building across the street where Sauce Italian Kitchen is located).

My personal favourites are the Fish Tareko, Garlic Shrimp and their Chau Chaus. Delicious!

We have been to this restaurant many times, and we try to have different dishes. It is always excellent. The service is very good. You will need reservations.

The Food has always been simply amazing! The atmosphere is fine, the service is good. You will need reservations. Parking is awful but not their fault.

If you are looking for delicious, home cooked, authentic Nepalese cuisine, the Himalayan is the restaurant for you!
Decor is beautiful and the owners and staff are very friendly and welcoming.
We have been here numerous times and we always order the feast as one gets a nice assortment of different dishes to try.
You will not leave here hungry!
