Have you ever had one of those meals where everything was in balance? Where the spiciness and flavor was perfect and because of that your taste buds force you to hmmm and ahhhh and dance in your chair? This is the Himalayan Kitchen. Every time we return to Oahu to visit this is one of few restaurants we visit. The... More

Himalayan Kitchen was a very nice find. We enjoyed the food and it's been awhile since I've had good Indian food. I got spoiled in Varanasi, India when I visited it a year ago, so I compare all Indian food to that experience. Himalayan Kitchen in Honolulu is pretty good. I'm fond the masala and it was very tasty. It... More

This place was very busy and unfortunately extremely understaffed. The service was fair but the staff hurried and spoke very heavily accented "English". I honestly understood only one word in four. We were a party of three and both the others enjoyed their food but mine (Madras Lamb Curry) was served tepid, barely at room temperature. Gross. The rice also... More

I have eaten Nepal cuisine many times while in Southeast Asia. I was impressed by how authentically prepared and delicious the food is here. The spices were just right, so that my infant granddaughter even enjoyed it. Many types of curry and naan were served. They have there own tandoori cooking equipment. Recommend for families.

What more do you need to know-- roaches. in. the. food. Ordered food from Aloha2Go actually but the restaurant is 100% responsible for this as the food was sealed in plastic containers and the bugs were well into the food and not moving. 100% disgusted, felt sick all day from it. Guy on the phone said they've gotten multiple complaints... More

Off the main tourist area and not the most glamorous of restaurants however the service and food was absolutely fantastic. Would recommend a visit. Go with an appetite and try the naan breads.

We heard about this restaurant from Tripadvisor and visited yesterday for dinner. Very surprised to find such an authentic indian restaurant serving variety of Indian food. We are vegetarians and loved our ordered meals. Tastes just amazing that too out of India. Owner Suman was just running around from table to table ensuring all guests are looked after. Other staff...

I am big time Indian food lover. This was a pleasant surprise, didn't expected this taste in tourist area. Very very close to real Indian taste. Good and quick service. We ask for medium spicy and for our daughter we ask for zero spice and it was perfect. We recommend this on any day.

Went with family and we ate family-style putting all the dishes in the middle. Everything was really good. Great experience!

Tucked away out of the mainstream, this place has a relaxing and charming atmosphere with delicious food. A good variety of choices on the menu and the naan is awesome! Each of us ordered one dish and one type of naan and shared so we could try as many dishes as we could before throwing in the towel. We couldn't... More
