Himalaya Restaurant offers vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian delights. They offer a daily lunch buffet, a la carte menu and desserts a plenty.
Same owners as the one on Main street.
came here for the buffet and probably one of the worst meals i have ever had!
the butter chicken had zero flavour, the curry tastes like water and the vegetables dishes looked like they were sitting there from the day before... i got full on naan bread and thats pretty sad.
as for the service, there isnt any. the staff does not even come around to clean up dirty dishes so you have to stack them on the table behind you (as long as no one is eating there).
in terms of value, its cheap AYCE... but the price reflects the quality of the food which isnt a good thing.
cant say too much about the ambiance... place could use a good clean up because it doesnt look very sanitary at first glance, doubt the washrooms are any better. only thing they got going for them are pay per view canucks games on their tvs.
i would never return here again and i would only recommend this "restaurant" to a friend if i wanted to pull a prank on him or her.
We ate in the buffet. the food was OK- not to die for, but Ok.
most of the plates to take were vegiterian, except for butter chicken and another chicken plate. it's good for the value of the money paid there, but I can still find better east indian food places for the same offer.
We have visited Himalaya often in the past but have stopped coming due to the prices going up and the food quality going down. It seemed to coincide with the move to the new location. They used to be consistently excellent and the service was good. But now we have had two takeout orders that were poor in quality and the service was non existent. We now go elsewhere for Indian food.
Typical Indian food is well stewed. The longer it is cooked, the more flavour is infused in to the food. There are other "fresher" way of preparing Indian food. But for a "buffet" restaurant, it is quite acceptable.
The curry chicken (drum sticks) is my favorit at the Himalaya Restaurant. The tandoori baked nan, when fresh, is very taste.
Good selection of food and lots of sweets.
This is not "fine dining", but then, you wouldn't go to a buffet for fine dining. When you have a craving for Indian food, this is a good choice.
I have been there many times. It is fast (well, it is a buffet) and pretty good value.
Buffet is one of the worst I've had. There are many good Indian restaurants out there...but this definitely isn't one of them. Butter chicken does not look or taste like butter chicken. Appy dishes (samosas, chick peas, pakoras) taste ok but are overpriced. I would not recommend this place to anyone for the lunch or dinner buffet as it's not worth the trip.
My husband and I go to Himalaya everytime we're looking for a delicious indian feast! Me being a vegetarian and my husband being a meat eater, there are tons of options for both of us. My favorites include the chana masala, the lentils and the yogurt curry. My husband says the butter chicken is pretty tasty, and the pieces of chicken in it are quite large. The naan break and samosa's are always fresh and authentic. This is the absolute best indian buffet I have yet to go to in the vancouver area!!!
