Diner Reviews
  • "It was my first visit here and I will be back to sample more dishes! Somewhat similar to Indian and Chinese dishes, but with different spices and flavors. We had the Mo-Mo vegetarian dumplings, Lamb stuffed naan and Chicken Saag. All were excellent. The Chicken Saag had really moist chicken with minced spinach. I've never had stuffed naan so it was interesting with lots of minced lamb. Next time I think I'll stick with unstuffed naan since I like to have my naan compliment the main dish instead of being its own entree. Nonetheless, everything was delicious and tasty. Very attentive wait staff."

  • "Although all food was good and perfectly spiced, the lamb was disappointing in that it was not tender. The amount was very generous and flavorful."

  • "Came here for New Year's eve and it was fantastic. I have never had Himalayan food before and it was great. It was a fusion between Indian and Asian cuisine. The waiter was helpful in choosing popular dishes and letting us in on portion size. Overall it was a great experience, I would definitely come back again."

  • "Interesting food- the momo was not as good as I expected, the pakoras were better than other Indian restaurant and the chicken Shikawi had a new lemony flavor. I think we will go back and try some other items on the menu."

  • "While the food was very good, the service was a little lackluster. If you're going for the food, you're in luck. If you're going for an overall dining experience, you may want to choose elsewhere since neither the service nor the ambience/decor fit the bill."

  • "My friend and I went here for dinner to be followed up by cake at Pop. We ordered the chicken saag, the lamb masala, garlic naan, and an order of the rice. Really good food at fairly good prices. If I happen to be craving Indian food while I'm in Pasadena, I'd probably go here again."

  • "My friend suggested this hidden gem off busy Colorado Blvd in Old Town. The staff are friendly, and the food is amazing! I absolutely recommend the saag paneer (spinach with cheese). It's my favorite Indian dish, and this place has it done perfectly! We also ordered the clay oven garlic chicken, and the chicken is yummy and tender. I also recommend the garlic naan. I wish the decor were more date friendly, but I will definitely be back!"

  • "Similar, but distinct from Indian cuisine, dining at Himalayan Cafe was a very positive experience. Servers were very attentive and friendly, and the chef even made an appearance to explain that the dumplings would take few extra minutes to cook. We will defintely return to further explore the menu."
