Three of us had dinner on a Saturday at 5:45. Before we left, at about 7:00, the place had filled and there were no empty tables . . . so come early. Two of us ordered Martinis, one gin and one vodka. They were rather watery when they reached the table. We also ordered the califlower starter, chicken mo mo, the Thukpa soup, a Himalayan curry, and a Nepalese thali. We ordered all the food spicy, and it was probably about Thai medium on the heat scale (for those of you who do a lot of Thai). The spices were excellent, which was the reason we were there ordering Nepalese, rather than Indian off that extensive menu. Everything we ordered was very good, although we would still like to find a Nepalese or Tibetan restaurant that focused just on that food, like the Blue Moon, a family Tibetan restaurant that used to be in San Francisco (no longer there), short of going to Montreal.

The food was quite good. We all chose the Nepali items. The momos were great. The service was very slow. It probably took them at least 15 minutes from seating us to taking the initial drink order and perhaps ten more minutes to actually serve the drinks.

We took our son, his wife, preschool daughter, & infant son to Himalayan Heritage. All of us thought it was delicious. The food was excellent, especially the Mo Mo dumplings & crispy spinach. Service was responsive, polite, & gracious. Although we were the only ones in the restaurant with children, the staff was incredibly kind about bringing food for them quickly. We will return often to this neighborhood gem.

My meal was so delicious! It reminded me of my favorite restaurant in Shanghai, nepali kitchen. The chicken dumplings melt in your mouth and the butter chicken was superb! A++

I had eaten once before at Himalayan Heritage on a weekday. The food was delicious, and I decided to take visiting family there on a Saturday night. We had an 8:00 pm reservation, but there was nobody at the front podium to check us in. We ended up flagging down a waiter named Armaan, who said he was in charge of the tables and it would be a few minutes. We weren't seated until 8:30, with no update or explanation. All the waiters seemed to be avoiding the front of the restaurant, where there was a line of customers with reservations waiting to be seated. We couldn't even get drinks at the bar while we waited because there was nobody serving there. I don't know if they were understaffed that night or if they just had tables stay longer than expected, but the complete lack of communication ruined the dining experience. The food was still delicious, and the service once we were seated was fine. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if anyone in your party expects a reasonable amount of accuracy when it comes to reservation time, or honesty from the servers.

Not enough staff. Waited for 20 minutes for water, another 20 for drinks, about 20 more for appetizers. Didn't order main course decided to just leave and go elsewhere. Staff seemed to not be assigned tables. Therefore staff didn't know who was taken care of and who wasn't.

Unique Nepalese cuisine in between Indian and Persian with a hint of Chinese. Take your time and order one individual plate at a time.

We made reservations at HH on Valentine's day. We were seated at a long table with another party; no privacy and they were vulgar. The service was extremely slow; the server didn't take our order for 10 minutes and never checked on us during dinner. We ordered the Heritage special naan which is supposed to be stuffed with nuts and raisins (I've ordered it several times before). We got regular naan. When I flagged the server down to ask about this he insisted it was correct even though I opened one up and showed it to him. I decided not to argue with my date sitting there. The rest of the food was fine. Overall a mediocre experience.

In the middle of the Adams Morgan restaurant scene, this is a small restaurant with an excellent array of Nepalese and related dishes, all beautifully prepared. All of the wait staff are obviously proud to work there, and genuinely want you to enjoy your meal. It is quiet for close conversation, and has some interesting cocktails — elements for a nice romantic meal. The friends I took here had a wonderful time and savored the food.

This Nepalese restaurant is always a dependable option. The food is always beautifully prepared and presented, the people who run the place are about as nice and accommodating as they can be, and the prices are always reasonable. I would recommend Himalayan Heritage to anyone who's looking for a place for dinner up in Adams Morgan.

Dined after a celebration of Oscar Wilde's birthday at the Smithsonian's Ripley Center.

She started with the Spinach Chat and I the Pork Sekuwa. We had lamb entrees (Ko Jhir for her and a nicely spicy Vindaloo for me) and an order of Garlic Naan. We shared an order of the cheesecake-like Rasmalai for dessert and ended with well-made cocktails (Everest for me and Mango Refresher for her).

Service was prompt in the mostly empty restaurant.

We may return to Himalayan Heritage.

We happened on this place via Open Table whilst staying at the Washington Hilton. A little difficult to find as it shares an Entrance with a Karioke Bar. Once inside it is a nice restaurant, quiet whilst we were there, range of menu was slightly limited but plenty to choose from. We had Chicken Vindaloo and Chicken Jalfrezi both of which were spicy and hot. Rice was excellent along with the Aloo Paratha. Closest Indian to the hotel and we wanted Indian. Worth a visit and good value for money.

I had high expectations. Growing up with friends that were from Nepal gave me some experience with Himalayan food but the food left me wanting more. It didn't taste as fresh as I would of liked. The lamb and chicken dish were lukewarm went it got to our table.

First time trying Nepalese food and was not disappointed. High quality food and excellent taste. Some might say "Nepalese is just like Indian" but they would be mistaken. There are some commonalities but many unique differences as well.

I have been to numerous Indian restaurants in DC and unfortunately, Himalayan didn't stand out among the others. The price was average but the serving sizes were small compared to other restaurants I've patroned. The specialty cocktails had too much sugar in them more so than liquor in the actual drink. The ambience of the restaurant along with the service was very good. It's a nice place to be able to eat and have a full conversation without leaning in and speaking too loud. The quality of the food was good but nothing extraordinary. Because the portion sizes were small and for the amount we spent, I wouldn't go out of my way again to eat at Himalayan.
