Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This restaurant was a recommendation from the place I was staying at. It did not disappoint! The butter chicken was very tender and sweet and just the right type of spicy. Three garlic naan was wonderful!

Was close to where we were staying so decided to give it a try. The service was prompt, friendly and our questions were answered clearly. The food was very flavoursome, with the spice level just right for our individual tastes. Rice perfectly cooked and the...naans were great. The fact that you can byo wine is a bonus (we didn't) however the drinks menu still offers a great variety.More

We had an excellent meal with friends. The food was plentiful, delicious and promptly served. The server checked with us frequently but was unobtrusive and very pleasant. It was excellent value for money . The best Indian cuisine we’ve had in a long time

We happened upon this restaurant walking back to our hotel. What a surprise. We have had a lot of Indian Food in the US and this was as good or better than anything we’ve had. The server recommended a coconut chicken dish and it was...absolutely delicious. The naan was just about perfect. We loved it. Highly recommended!0More

I’ve been here multiple times. Excellent food, terrible sound proofing. Gets extremely noisey very quickly. The restaurant would be SO much better if they spent some money on that.

Service was fantastic. They were reasonably busy for a Tuesday night but we were seated quickly and our order taken promptly. The meal arrived quickly and was delicious. The fluffiest most delicious naan I’ve ever eaten stunning chicken pakoras and 2 delicious curries. Will definitely...be back. Large space and simple tasteful decor .More

Hubby said best Indian Meal he has ever had. The onion bhajee was amazing, followed by fabulous Naan bread and two curry dishes. Really really good, highly recommend. Wonderful staff and lovely place to enjoy a fantastic meal.

I have been attending Himalayas regularly for takeaway for years. Always get a lovely meal with generous portions and it's well priced. We have tried them all and I still think for my Western Pallet, it's as good as it gets!

Couldn't fault Himalayas. Lots of food choices, with different options we hadn't seen before. Beautifully cooked with great spicy flavours and good size servings. Some craft beers too. Great service as well.
