This is a very good restaurant
This is a very good restaurant with an attentive wait-staff. We have two dishes that we split. The flavors were very distinctive and the dishes extremely well flavorful. I would recommend it without reservation and will return to sample other menu items.

Very Good and Parking Too
Himalayan Flavors has a nice decor, very attentive waiters, and the food is delicious. I definitely will be going back in the future. The added bonus is that there is off street parking available for customers. What a treat in Berkeley!!

I have been to Himalayan Flavors about five times now, and I have never been disappointed. The service is so attentive, pleasant and sweet. The food is so flavorful and delicious. My favorites are the Momos (chicken and vegetarian), lamb vindaloo, tandoori chicken, and their naan is off the hook! Also, I love the way the restaurant is decorated and the ambience is great.

This restaurant has a very marked Nepalese touch and makes dishes delicious. The chai Iis very good and they even hsve natural juices using beets. There is plenty of options. I highly recommend samosas. I very much will go back and often.

Delicious, distinctive options
Standards such as lamb korma are done perfectly here, but they have some unique options that are at least as good. The Himalayan Malai Kofta is delectable. Also, their Phapar Ko Babar (Nepali pancakes) were a tasty alternative to Naan.

Great food -- Nice people!
Interesting food and wonderful staff. I nice place to enjoy some unusual food -- with a true range of "heat" levels. My spouse was delighted to be able to eat interesting and tasty food that didn't overpower with heat while I enjoyed the spicy food they prepared for me!

Decent food, good prices
We're happy to find this place since it is walking distance from our house. It is one of the nicest restaurants on that stretch of University.
The restaurant was totally empty when we arrived, which felt a bit awkward. We arrived at 7:30 on a Thursday night and were the only patrons until a second couple showed up around 25 minutes later. By the time we left at 9:00, five tables were occupied.
The fare was Indian food and was quite good. However based on the description, reviews and the name of the restaurant, I was expecting something more Nepalese, or something a bit different from Indian food. We have a dozen good Indian restaurants in Berkeley already.
Two people, very good food, $35. A great deal, we'll be returning here again.

We came here on Thanksgiving with my mother. We don't usually celebrate Thanksgiving per se, so, we end up eating really boring Chinese food or joining friends for dreadful, bland Thanksgiving fixed menus. We were thrilled to find a place with super-tasty food that was also ala carte. One of us is vegan, one is vegetarian, my mother is a carnivore, but we all found dishes that we were happy with. The samosas were truly fabulous, the vegetarian thukpa is different than we had in Tibetan communities in our travels, but it was very delicious...would definitely order those things again. The sweet staff brought us some Indian desserts on the house for Thanksgiving. The decor has lots of charm too. We're going here every Thanksgiving from now on
