Himalayan Heritage Restaurant & Bar
The food is more adapted to non Indian taste buds. Everything tasted underwhelming and bland. The server couldn't provide accurate description or recommendation for spicy dishes.
Lovely meal, good serving size, and extremely authentic preparation. Their regular spicy level is not too spicy. Rice pudding dessert delicious.
Food was OK. Everything seemed sweetened to suit western tastes. Service was patchy but possibly because it was quite full Saturday evening. The dumplings were good. One person in our party developed an stomach. Menu is more Indian than Himalayan/Nepali.
Delicious flavor - everything was amazing like a party in my mouth! Chicken Korma was amazing and chicken vindaloo was excellent and perfectly spicy. Only needed one raita - the cocktails were perfect.
The food was very good. However, there was confusion with our order that might have been a language issue. We were a party of 3 women. When one of our party ordered Chicken Tikka, the waiter indicated it would take 25 minutes. The person then said they would change their order to CHICKEN / PORK MO:MO (DUMPLING) but the waiter thought they had ordered both items?? They brought out both the dumpling orders (2 diners) but I had to wait a long time for my Chicken Korma because the waiter seemed to think we wanted both Chicken Tikka and Chicken Korma after 2 orders of dumplings. I would have rated the restaurant outstanding if it had not been for the confusion and delay receiving food.
This was my first visit in several years. It was very enjoyable. The curries are outstanding. I also enjoyed the Himalayan Special drink.
This spot was great! My family dined here for my moms birthday and the food was delicious. We just wish the portions were bigger.
Great food, with a beautiful interior. The servers were all very welcoming and kind. Definitely worth a try if you have not ever had Nepalese food!
Great Indian food.
We come here whenever we come to DC. Fabulous momos, great Himalayan food (not many other places anywhere). All the dishes are great. Best of Himalayan and Indian food.
Service was slow but food was great
Nice place, tasty food. A little scattered with the kitchen--we ordered before a larger group sat down. They were eating multiple dishes before we had anything! This was 40 minutes after arrival. So some glitches with that, but the ambiance was nice and the food was quite tasty.
Busy but not crowded. Good selection of Northern Indian and Tibetan food. Spice was accurate. Able to have a conversation, which is always the mark of a good restaurant for me. Extensive wine list.
Super food.... nice service, definitely go again!
Liked their menu, prices, service, and food
Some of the best Indian, Nepalese food we have had in the area. Just really fantastic.
The staff was very helpful, the food was great. We were very happy with our first experience here.
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.
Great spot for authentic Indian and Nepalese food. Enjoyed the variety of the menu and the service was excellent. Definitely a do again.
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.
The food here makes the somewhat haphazard service worthwhile.
Worth the drive!
My wife and I love Indian food but wanted to try something a little different than our go-to spot one night....so we ventured over to HH and we loved it! The only issue was the service had a bit of difficulty understanding our allergy concerns. Luckily we navigated the menu well and found the vegan options (pakora and eggplant curry) that hit the spot! Great night!
Made reservations and had to wait another 20 mins
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.
Amazing ambiance, food was delicious, and the service was excellent!
Loved it. Felt like we really experienced another culture which was warm, friendly and had inner peace.
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.
some orders were messed up
Nothing special Decent Indian food in Adams Morgan
Really interesting menu, especially the Nepali specialities. The experience was marred by a large and loud party, so avoid sitting near the back if you value your hearing.
Great food at reasonable prices with both indian and nepalese specialties.
Lovely restaurant with delicious and carefully prepared Asian food. Very warm and inviting space. Food well-priced and service excellent.
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.
