Large numbers of Indian families cannot resist this restaurant's allure but then neither can hungry Yanks and Europeans. Expect to find a very diverse crowd that simply does not care if the decor is simple in nature. The friendly staff serves as another reminder that the main goal here is satisfaction. The tandoori chicken is sublime and the curries will inspire you to return time and again. If you are nearby during the day, do not miss the amazing lunch buffet. It offers the perfect opportunity to sample many of the dishes, which is perfect for uncertain newcomers.
The Himalaya Restaurant the food really is exceptional and the prices reasonable. First of all, for those culturally sensitive, this is a Pakistani restaurant so the dishes are very similar to Northern Indian cuisine. This means there are lots of goat and lamb choices, biryanis (rice), and kebabs. Try the Gola Kebabs (the most amazingly tender grilled beef) with garlic naan hot out of the oven, washed down with mango lassi, and finish with the Rabri Walli Kheer-an almond rice pudding. Can't decide what to eat? Let Chef Kaiser decide. - JoAnn Takasaki
