It is interesting and surprising to see the Nepalese restaurant HIMALAYAN CAFE in heart of the old town Pasadena.
We are pleased to serve you delicious authentic Himalayas cuisine with mountain grown herbs and spices this perfect spot to enjoying an intimate dining the finest and fresh authentic Nepali cuisine.
I really like Himalayan Cafe, it's a nice spot in Old Town. My advice would be to get the dishes that are not Indian (momos, lamb roll, etc), that's where the food is especially good. Their curries are fine, but it's the Nepalese dishes that are the best.
I ordered the lamb dish with all the normal sides. The lamb was good but the portion was smile. The sides were very bland. We ordered garlic bread but never received it. The service was okay, but it took a while to be acknowledged.
I love eating here - especially when I am craving MoMos. Their meat (especially lamb) dishes have become less about meat and more about potatoes. I hope they reverse that trend. But their vegetarian dishes are great!
The location was great and the parking is just around the corner. The food was great, my nephew plans on traveling to Tibet and it was a good experience for him. We were celebrating a birthday and enjoyed the service and food.
