Himalayan Flavors Ratings and Reviews
Food was delicious, especially the eggplant and mushrooms cooked with tomatoes and onions! Loved the spices and felt good in my belly.
My sister asked the server about a couple dishes and she wasn't really able to enlighten us even after talking to the kitchen. I also told her no rice and she brought rice, no biggie but a waste.
My sister got chicken tikka and seemed to like it.
Last minute reservations to Himalayan Flavors and glad I picked a nice one. Food was great, service was great. The scene was chill, perfect place to eat again. They have their own free parking lot so that's a plus. Overall my fiance loved it, I'm glad she did, we will go back. Recommend anyone to check this place out.
They charge about twice as much as any other restaurant of this type. The portions were small and the lamb korma we ordered was tough and very chewy. The service wasn't that great either. Everything on the dinner menu was overpriced. The smoke from the kitchen wafts directly into the dining room so me and my guest were tearing up for the better part of our meal. Go somewhere else in Berkeley.
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
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.
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!
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.
Fantastic Indian/Himalayan menu with a variety of vegetarian, fish and meat dishes, along with an interesting selection of Naan. The open kitchen design made the dining area slightly smokey, but it was not overwhelming. Restaurant has its own parking lot, a bonus in downtown Berkeley. We plan to return to try other dishes.
We found Himalayan Flavors on Open Table because we were looking for a place for dinner after a movie on Christmas. It was one of two choices that had a table available. We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. It is excellent! The service was attentive, the menu diverse and interesting, and the food was delicious. One of the things we liked the most was the low noise level. It was possible to have a conversation with my 94 year old, hard of hearing, mother without repeating everything several times. We will definitely eat there again. Also worth a note that Himalayan Flavors has a convenient parking lot next door. We noticed that they have a room in the back for private parties.
