Tripadvisorโ€™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.

If you want a curry just like in India this is the place to go. We have never been disappointed, big servings full of flavour and packed full of meat

This is our (wife and me) favourite restaurant on The Kapiti Coast. Am constantly amazed at the emptiness of the restaurant in a place that has such bloody super tucker at a very modest price. The food is just fantastic and the staff so friendly....I just wish such a great place success. ๐Ÿ˜More

Hey guys hope you are well. Me and the old man took a detour to Paraparaumu and found Himalayan Kitchen, a tucked-away place that serves Indian ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ + Nepalese๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ตfood ๐Ÿ›. An interesting experience indeed, check out my pics and basic takes. ๐š…๐šŽ๐š๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š›๐š’๐šŠ๐š— ๐™ผ๐š˜๐š–๐š˜๐šœ ๐ŸฅŸ The...vegetarian momos had a spicy chilli sauce, a well-seasoned filling of cabbage, carrots ๐Ÿฅ•, peas, and potatoes ๐Ÿฅ”. We did ask for the Momos to be pan-fried and not steamed. The momo dough was a bit chewy, could have been done with more time on the pan to give a crispy texture. ๐™ป๐šŠ๐š–๐š‹ ๐™ฒ๐š‘๐š˜๐š  ๐™ฒ๐š‘๐š˜๐š  ๐Ÿœ The lamb chow chow noodles were yummy. A generous serving of boneless lamb pieces in rice noodles ๐Ÿœ with carrots ๐Ÿฅ•, cauliflower, peas, and onions ๐Ÿง…. The soup ๐Ÿฒ was flavoursome, good balance of salt๐Ÿง‚and spices. ๐™ฒ๐š‘๐š’๐š•๐š•๐š’ ๐™ฒ๐š‘๐š’๐šŒ๐š”๐šŽ๐š— ๐Ÿ› Chilli chicken had a sweet chilli base which was not spicy and topped with onions ๐Ÿง… + capsicum ๐Ÿซ‘. Lovely mild taste with big pieces of deep-fried, battered chicken breast pieces. The garlic naan was nicely flavoured and spread with butter ๐Ÿงˆ + garlic. For us, it was a bit on the thick side but not bad. ๐™พ๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š›๐šŠ๐š•๐š• + ๐™ณ๐šŽ๐šŒ๐š˜๐š› ๐Ÿช‘ Truthfully, the outside decor and entrance did not give a good first impression. We did see the sign on the roof, but the concrete was not paved nicely and the entrance was through a carport or walkway for disability access. The inside decor was fair, and good painting to depict the Indian ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ / Nepalese๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ตvibe. Perhaps get matching chairs ๐Ÿช‘ + tables and tile or install carpet/link flooring to make the eatery more like a professional restaurant than a residential house. But don't judge a book ๐Ÿ“š by itโ€™s cover. Overall, the service and food were good ๐Ÿ˜‹ and I would go to try their Indian curries ๐Ÿ› again. Definitely recommend it if you want to get away from fast food or the standard Coastland food court/cafes.More

Ordered a takeaway/delivery 19 Feb 22. Our first experience of this restaurant. Was absolutely wonderful. I'd never had the Dry Manchurian before anywhere and it was a revelation. Very flavoursome. Other dishes were also very nice. Good value and prompt delivery. Highly recommended.
