Like it. Great food made by two Nepali cooks. You can choose meal done in Tandoori oven. Fishes, lamb or chicken. You should try special Indian “Naan” bread. And of course, it is hot and spicy :-).

If you've been in Central Europe a while, this will really hit the spot. Good food, and different from your normal Czech fare. If you can get in on a lunch buffet, it's really worth it.

Himalaya is a Nepalese restaurant that shares space in the old water barracks with the Irish bar 'The Crack'. If you've been in Olomouc a few days and are looking for a change from the excellent but heavy traditional local food, Himalaya is the place.

At lunchtime, everything except the entrance foyer is a smoke-free zone, and that's good for non-smoking travellers on a budget, because lunchtime is the best time to go.

Every week day between 11am and 2pm the Nepali chefs serve up a buffet of meat and vegetarian curries, dhal, naan, and home made chutnies to transport your tastebuds to another continent. All you can eat for 100Kč!

The buffet table is in the first main dining room and the usual procedure is to help yourself to a metal tray and cutlery, load up as much as you like and find a seat. It's possible to return to the buffet for more helpings, so there's no need to overload your plate on the first visit. Unfortunately some people confuse all you can eat with all you can waste, so please don't embarrass yourself by joining that club.

There's also an especially good range of drinks, including the renowned Lobkowicz beer from North Moravia, bottled Guinness, Svatovaclavský wheat beer from the microbrewery across town, and an outstanding non-alcoholic Jamaican Ginger beer that's likely to dampen the brows of all but the fieriest spice lovers.
