This place must go place in Saint Charles for years. Every time we are in town our first choice to go there and filled our tummy with delicious foods. Their taste, generous portions and quality is always consistent. We have no idea how they maintaining,...regardless of all we all enjoy very much. Keep up the good works.More

We stopped here based on reviews that we read. The owner, "Jack" for short, is wonderful. He is the type of person that you just say "I want something vegetarian, something chicken and a naan" and 3 great dishes arrive. The pudina masala chicken (or...mint curry) was especially wonderful - I'm going to try to make it back home. The restaurant itself was slow due to the cold weather and the COVID situation but his carryout business was booming. I am thankful that he had his restaurant open for indoor dining as we were in the Chicago area for a family event and staying at a hotel. Thanks Jack!More

It has been over a year world has changed and every one of us are trapped indoors than outdoor. After vaccinations both doses we decided to go for dine out at our favorite restaurant Taste of Himalayas. As soon as showed up there owner Jack...approached to us and recognized. He was very pleased to see us there. We were 6 of us we order 6 different entrees along with verities Tandoori Nans. Every one of us enjoy our very first dine out after pandemic. We image how they maintain their quality food always and they never compromise quantity of serving also. Keep up the good works guys we will support you every way we can. Highly recommended.More

We were delighted to find a branch of the La Jolla restaurant Taste of the Himalayas near the UTC mall since we have enjoyed the La Jolla location so much. This small venue is located in the Renaissance strip center. The red walls are decorated...with outlines of the Buddhist phase as well as one slightly pornographic drawing of him with a maiden. There is also a nice little patio area for dining. The Indian food is excellent – – my husband and I shared chicken tikka masala and lamb vindaloo along with jasmine rice and garlic naan. The service was very attentive and friendly and the price is very reasonable. A large bottle of Taj Mahal beer was a nice accompaniment to share.More

Pretty decent lunch buffet at reasonable price. The selection of items was not huge but adequate - although the fact that the two meat dishes were chicken and the buffet also include tandoori chicken makes it a bit poultry-heavy. Large basket of naan included.

This is an excellent restaurant. I’ve been eating here for years. The waitstaff (especially head waiter Raj) is outstanding and very accommodating. Will also cook to order things not included on the menu.

Good food and good service. Midweek visit for dinner and not very busy. The Himalayan specialties are a nice addition to the basic Indian choices (which were also quite good).

We went today with our daughter. It was so rainy day we thought place will be less crowded but our guess comes out to be wrong. Restaurent was so busy but our Table was waiting for because we always made our reservation before we go...there. We order our favorite meal like always we do- Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb Pudina Masala and our daughter’s favorite dish Lamb Pasanda along with Saffron rice and couple of garlic Naan bread. This trip was our Faughter’s belated birthday dinner which we mentioned to owner who was helping to take our order. We truly enjoy our dinner all the way to the end and there was plenty left over to take home as well. We asked for bill but before we get our bill they brought small carrots cake with lid up candle to surprised our daughter. We were so humble that we were not expecting birth day cake when we mentioned reason for today’s visit. That’s totally surprised for all of us. They have their foods always consistent and full of flavor. We never disappoint with this restaurant. They always customize their entree’s as per your request as mild, medium or hot. Don’t forget to order new beer from NEPAL called Mustang. We walk away with today’s memorable visit and can’t wait to go back again.More

We have been coming for years, the food is always delicious, Raj and Deepak are the most amazing waiters, unfortunately the owner is not always reasonable and doesn't deliver good customer service. We are not sure we'll be back.

The food is delicious, Raj, Deepak and the kitchen staff are courteous, efficient, helpful and friendly, BUT, we found the owner to be discourteous, argumentative and approaching rude. Despite being very regular and frequent customers we are considering finding another favorite restaurant.

Ever waffle about writing a stellar review because you want your favorite haunt to do well and stay in business, but don't want it to get so crowded it's hard to get a table? This is that place. Have eaten my way around the menu...and have enjoyed every dish. Hubby has settled on lamb rogan josh, but I like to mix it up. Don't miss the #69 vegetarian chef's special. You can go mild, medium, or hot (if you dare!) on any dish. Nice selection of Indian beers. There is also a full bar. Haven't hit the lunch buffet yet, but it seems to be popular, and at 9.99 for all you can eat, a good bargain.More

I dined here with my brother on 23 Feb. We arrived at 9:20 PM and were immediately told that the kitchen closed at 10 PM and we had to be done by then. Two more times during the time we were there, we were reminded...of the closing time. When the check was presented and as I was about to put the tip on the credit card voucher, one of the staff told me that they don't see those tips--that the restaurant owner keeps them. The food however was good. Service was the worst in terms of attitude.More

Taste of the Himalayas offers a wide variety of what I consider to be Indian fair, and notably provides these generally highly-seasoned and delectable dishes at an almost bargain price. We can highly recommend anything on the menu which, not surprisingly, does include lots of...vegetarian and vegan choices, though I tend toward animal proteins by choice.. Visit taste of the himalayans and you'll be pleasantly surprised!More

The food is amazing. The staff is very helpful and helped us navigate the menu. The menu is pretty extensive and it is fun to split a meat and a vegetable entree
