Cute name isn’t it. I have never had Nepali or Afghani food before,so that is why we decided on Himalaya. When we arrived we were surprised to find a $10 buffet. We also learned that the place had new owners;as of September 1. A Russian married couple. The chef was the same so the food would not miss in the translation. The buffet line was small but nicely done and well stocked.

I was impressed with the quality of the preparation. Each dish was impeccably seasoned. No one spice took control and none of the dishes were spicy hot. I especially liked the spinach and lentils. However I couldn’t find one single weak link. They offered kabob options,sans skewer in chicken and ground beef.

The beef was really nicely done. Little torpedos of meat that still had a touch of pink in the center. The chicken in tomato sauce offered a bonus as the sauce was a good cover for the Jasmine rice.

Before I forget they have an excellent chicken noodle soup. A goodly amount of noodles in a wonderfully tasty broth.

They also offer a dumpling I believe it is called a Manto. Seasoned turkey and the only dish with onion in it. It was superb. No pictures though. One last thing. As we finished the owner brought us a piece of fresh Baklava. It was the best I have had so far in town.

They have the buffet as a weekly lunch time affair. In the evening and on week ends they offer an extensive ala carte menu. They show the menu on their website and as you can see the prices are more than reasonable. Besides where else can you get Nepali food from a restaurant owned by a Russian couple, in Indianapolis.
