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.
Wonderful place to meet up with an old friend I hadn’t see in years. Service was so friendly and the food was amazing. Great veggie options for me and meat options for the others. Incredible value, too! I highly recommend Himalaya.
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.
The food is incredible! Wait staff are so pleasant as well. Great experience
Delicious! The vegetarian momos are the best! I've dined in and been for takeout many times and it's always great and the servers are very friendly.
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.
We make it to Himalayan Heritage one or two times a year. It's always excellent. We love the mo mo.
This past Saturday, myself and 3 friends enjoyed an amazingly tasteful dinner at Himalayan Heritage. I wish I could recall the names of the 4 entrees and 4 appetizers we ordered, however, everything tasted so great - we're eager to return.
Good options for the whole family, including vegetarian.
Great authentic food, friendly service, and a nice ambiance. Overall a great evening and I would definitely go back again.
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.
Quiet spot in Adams Morgan for a quick bite and a drink. Would recommend.
This was a really fun place to eat. It was cozy and had really yummy Nepali dumplings. It also had an extensive Indian menu.
Excellent in every way! We had a wonderful experience as a party of 6 dining out on a weekend night.
The food was delicious but the service was v e r r r y slow.
Food was very good but an inept waiter spilled food all over my companion. They reseat d us but that's all. A bit more attention would have been appreciated
Food was excellent. Service was just okay, the water girl did keep our glasses full, but we didnt see the waiter too often. One minir thing was when we ordered an appetizer, we asked to have the sesame sauce and also some tamarin, as we weren't sure which one would be best. He said we could only pick one, yet he brought us tamarin with our bread a little later, so i dont see what the issue was. Our bill was about $100 for a family of 4.
If you like indian food look no further! This place is it! Absolutely delicious!!
The food was very good traditional Indian food. It was a perfect cozy setting for a group to sit around, eat, drink wine and have a conversation. The service was great. We had a very enjoyable evening.
great!!!! Best indian food ever! a real gem!!!!!
For some reason, service was extremely slow even though we had two waitstaff who weren't communicating with each other. One would take our order and 5-10 minutes later, the other waiter would take our order again. Food took long to arrive and they repeatedly brought us someone else's meals. When our food finally arrived, we were missing an entree. The waitress didn't place all order even though she confirmed before taking off! It could have been a language barrier since the staff barely spoke English and were hard to understand. Both she and the manager apologized, but didn't seem to be sincere. My meal got cold while waiting for my partner's order to arrive. I wasn't expecting them to comp us, but they could have at least offered to give him bread while waiting. I had always liked the food here and had ordered for delivery many times, but I don't think I'll eat in the restaurant again in the near future.
This place is such a safe bet any time you're looking for a great, inexpensive meal in AdMo and surroundings. We love the food - the fried spinach that melts in your mouth is just divine, and the curries are always good. The service is discreet and you won't have a waiter in your face intruding during your meal.
This is one of the very best Indian/Nepali restaurants that I have been to within the US. I am Indian myself, so this is truly a compliment. The food is delicious, and lightly/healthily prepared, as it would be in an Indian/Nepali home. Usually Indian restaurant food is much heavier than that which would be eaten daily at home, so the fact that this food is more home-like is very welcome. In addition to that, the décor is heavenly, and the music is classical/spiritual rather than Bollywood. This is also very welcome. All in all, I will be returning here frequently as my Indian restaurant of choice, even though it is almost an hour from my home despite many other Indian restaurants to choose from.
Very nice combination of Nepali, Tibetan, and Indian food.
Food was interesting and different. Enjoyed very much. Service wasn't terrible but could have been better. I would recommend it.
