Friends from Holland/Switzerland in town, and we convened for a delightful visit over Nepalese food. Service helpful, friendly, courteous and quick. Spectacular food, beautifully presented. Try the butter shrimp, mango rice pudding ... everyone, including our vegetarian, had a great feast!

Food is great. Tantalize your palate with something different on each visit. Staff is very friendly and helpful with the menu if you have questions. Cheaper than flying to Nepal.

Was in Calgary for a conference and happened on the Hymalayan one night. Liked it so much we came back again later in the week. Lamb saag, momo, tandoori chicken, fish curry, coconut rice were all fantastic.

The atmosphere was nice. It's a bit more upscale than the TripAdvisor photos appear. Food was authentic and very tasty. The wine was a bit pricey per glass though. 4 out of 5 stars.

Very tasty food (a lot of tomato based food). The staff was very pleasant. A small space and very busy, so book ahead.

No buffet. They used to have a lunch buffet but no longer serve lunch at all. Dinner is by the menu.
