Himalayan Kitchen


Shrimp Tandoori

We enjoy our delicious meals every time we have lunch here. It’s a very tranquil restaurant with friendly staff who provide outstanding service. Ishwari the restaurant manager does a fantastic job making every diner feel very welcome. My wife and I decided it was time we came back here for lunch. We arrived a bit later than usual for us when we walked in around 2pm on Saturday. Manoj the host welcomed us at the front desk and showed us to a booth table.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Our friendly server Pushkar took our order for Chicken Tikka Masala ( number 2 spicy ) for my wife and Shrimp Tandoori for me + one serve of Plain Naan bread. Glasses of cool water were brought to our table and shortly after a concerto of dishes arrived swiftly at our table. What a beautiful sight to behold ! We know from many visits here that the food is always outstanding so we were looking forward to this.

Rice and Naan bread

We shared our dishes as usual because it is more fun. Ishwari the talented restaurant manager and head chef today did a an excellent job as our dishes tasted incredible. During week days the lunch special menu here is probably the best value going around where for under $10 a person you can get a sumptuous meal including Naan Bread. This is a very simple restaurant run by very humble people but the food is as good as anywhere. We love it !
