And the service is first rate. I have brought many friends to Himalayan Flavors over the years, and all have also been delighted with their experiences. I will continue to... More

We had an excellent meal, mildly spiced chicken (two kinds), eggplant, veg korma, veg pakora, raita and the obligatory wine and mango lassi! Using restaurant.com coupon, the bill for 5 was $100, Not the center of town, but parking is easy next door.

You can get lots of vegan options, brown rice, whole grain bread. Very tasty and they are authentic recipes.

I came here for a poetry reading event in a small room at the back of the restaurant. The ambiance was plain and the noise coming in from the kitchen and main restaurant room was distracting. The food was okay but the service was excellent!

Lunch here with my wife recently. We have a dearth of good Asian restaurants where we live in Florida, so we were anxious for some good Indian food. Our lunch was simple: one chicken Tikka Masala, and one Tandoori Chicken, plus orders of Plain Naan, and Garlic Naan (LOTS of garlic!). Service was efficient and friendly. Our dishes were prepared...

A little further to walk from campus, but easy if you have a car. This restaurant serves a selection of delicious bites of mouth-watering Indian, Nepalese and Bhutanese dishes, with outstanding service, generous portions and flavors that hit all the right spots on your taste-buds. I must however flat out state that the tastes far superior to what is served... More

We've been to this restaurant several times and have ordered different dishes on each occasion. Most of the meals have been good to very good but the food has been, at times, a bit inconsistent. On our last visit we ordered Chicken Tikka - OK but surprisingly bland. We also ordered one of the Himalayan regional specials, a chicken dish.... More

I took my son (a recent UC Berkeley grad) to lunch here -- the second time for both of us. Himalayan Flavors again did not disappoint. Everything we have had has been delicious. It's now on our list of "favorites" for Berkeley visits.
