My husband and I love the food !!! He enjoys Indian food however most restaurants cannot make their dishes mild enough for him. Himalaya prepares his meals with the perfect amount of spices. We always have a wonderful dining experience there.

Tasty food nicely presented in a nearly empty restaurant for an early dinner. Food was tasty Nepalese, and not the usual Indian fare. Great for a different approach.

This restaurant never disappoints. Food is always perfect. Started with pork chili, which was crispy and tasty. Vegetables were crisp and fresh. Ordered chicken korma, and chicken Makini. Both were equally delicious. One with a golden almond sauce, the other in a spicy red sauce. The nan was crispy and buttered yet soft and perfect. Love this place!

This has become our go to Indian style restaurant in the Scarsdale area. It has a slightly different taste than traditional Indian since it is Himalayan, but it’s pretty close. Everything is delicious. The service is routinely good. And the owner is very friendly. Been here about 5 times in 6 months. This fills a hole in the area which has lacked consistently good Indian restaurants.

Varied menu including Himalayan, Indian and even a few Chinese dishes. Reliable. Service a bit slow when it’s crowded but not intolerable.

It was a lovely meal, a bit noisy but possibly because it was a weekend.
We enjoyed a birthday meal for a special person and we enjoyed our meal.

Took my mother-in-law for her birthday. Started off with the chicken chili, and I had a Momo soup beef. We also ordered beef Momos pan fried. The chili is always excellent. Crispy fresh and delicious. Vegetables perfectly cooked. I loved the Momo soup. I had three very large dumplings in a really flavorful broth.
For entrées, we ordered chicken tikka masala, specialty dish called Himalayan Makhini which was a combination of beef and chicken in a very rich delicious and spiced sauce. Not hot though.
I ordered beef sekuwa Which were very flavorful beef cubes. I also ordered a shrimp appetizer was rock shrimp in a glaze. They were good. Garlic nan was excellent! The service is excellent. Waiters and waitresses are so polite. They explain every dish, and what’s hot and what’s spicy. Meal ended with a Himalayan ceremony for my mother-in-law‘s birthday. They gave us a silk scarf came up with a gong and put a mask on her and did a ceremonial tradition. She loved it. Love this place, it’s always consistently excellent

As a regular customer , this was perhaps the first time my wife and I got disappointed by the food ... It was very light on spices (e.g not much flavor & taste) and the server mixed up our order and my plate did not come back at the right level of spaciness (i.e. it came not spicy at all and I had to ask for extra hot sauce and chopped chilies)... Will definitely go back hoping this was just a bad day in the kithcen.

Excellent food and service. Staff very welcoming. The food is different from your standard Indian food to make it worthwhile to go to this restaurant. Try the Chili Chicken appetizer. The Sha Faley are good though a bit more spice would make them tastier. The Tibetan bread is unique and delicious. For the mains we loved the Chana Masala (Chickpeas), the Chicken Zalfrezi and the Chicken Curry. They bring a lot of rice with each main dish so unless you plan to eat it all or want a doggie bag, best to ask them to bring fewer orders of rice.
For dessert, the kulfi is delicious.
Not very expensive and great value for the quality of the food.
And as a plus -- the bathroom is always spotless.
