Restaurant Description

Besting the myriad of restaurants and buffets in Las Vegas, a new addition has come to town, the Himalayan Cuisine. Nestled a little farther from the Strip at 730 E. Flamingo Road (between Paradise Road and Swenson), Himalayan Cuisine is a respite from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, while offering a similarly, if not better, ambiance and superb cuisine from the Himalayan countries of Nepal, Indian and Tibet. In a city where each new restaurant attempts to be more exotic than the other, one begs the question, what's sacred and not "sinful" here?

One definite answer: no beef or pork is served here.

The kind of food offered in this restaurant encompasses a geographic area strongly influenced by religion, custom and traditions. The intriguing menu of poultry, lamb, seafood and vegetables are subtle and the savory dishes are made with infinite combinations of herbs and spices. Painstakingly gathered from a wide variety of kitchens in the South Asian region, Himalayan Cuisine's menu offers a unique dining experience, as exotic and enchanting as this fusion of Hindu and Buddhist cultures.

To whet your appetite, start off with their on-the-house papadam (paper-thin wafers made from pello lentils), with mint and tamarind sauce for dipping. Taste their momo (Tibetan dumplings made of minced meat, or just vegetables, and spices) and topped with savory tomato sauce. Or try their samosa (deep fried spiced mashed potato wrapped in flour pastry wrapping).

 I love Indian cuisine, but I believe Nepalese is a thousand times better! I've tried every Indian restaurant in town from Gandhi to Origin and Himalayan Cuisine is far far better than all of these. They deservingly recieved "Best Indian Restaurant" award from Las Vegas City Life and they are not even Indian! The entrees are unique and the Lamb Sekuwa was the tastiest lamb I have ever eaten. Puts all those fancy chefs lamb dishes to shame. The beer and wine list are perhaps the best and most reasonably priced in all of Las Vegas. Very progressive and friendly owner who is passionate about his craft and insists on not doing the same things as other restaurants do. Bold and innovative restaurant for sure. Unfortunately the location is not as sexy as some other places and I fear this turns off some people, but if you do venture in, you are in for one of the best dining experiences in Las Vegas.

 The food tasted amazing... the lamb is so juciy and tender. It was a pleasant experience the waiter knew all about his food, beer and wine selections. We were able to try beers not sold in many places.
