We have eaten at Himalaya several times. I try something different each time because of the uniqueness of the cuisine. In ways some of the dishes are reminiscent of Indian without the range of curries. Perhaps northern India is similar. The rices and breads are delicious. The meals are cooked in sauces, or at least finished with them, and are... More

We have a tradition of going here once a year while enjoying the Ventura Primer Nationals car show. The service is always great, and the food is absolutely spectacular! Each year it gets better and better.

I should say this is the best Indian food I had after a long time In California. Me and my family were on our way back from LA after finishing an exhaustive vacation. We reached the restaurant around 2PM for lunch. We ordered the Non Vegetarian Thali(rice+bread with sabji) that they had and some butter chicken gravy. The food tasted... More

We love this place! Cozy, good service, and a great selection of "ethnic" foods. We have tried a little bit of everything and it is all great. If you are a baby like me the medium spice on my Dal Baht had me pounding water, and I will go back with the baby version of spice. Great place, just wished... More

Meeting someone I did not know, we had texted that ethnic would be our mutual choice. I searched for choices on Yelp.com and google.com. Happily, Himalaya came up and highly recommended. And, so it was.....we had a wonderful early dinner on the patio with the Buddha flowing fountain and wonderful weather. The service and food was amazing. We ordered 4... More

The staff were really friendly, the food was excellent with plenty of it and we ordered cola drinks they bought us a large drink each and then two carafes one with water the other with cola, a really nice touch. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

My niece took me here. My first experience with Himalayan food. The chai tea was delicious and free refills. We had two kinds of Naan. I especially liked the garlic naan. But then I love garlic. The chicken tikka was great. I loved the sauce which I think was tomato and yogurt based. Very creamy. I have no idea which... More
