Took my mother-in-law for her birthday. Started off with the chicken chili, and I had a Momo soup beef. We also ordered beef Momos pan fried. The chili is always excellent. Crispy fresh and delicious. Vegetables perfectly cooked. I loved the Momo soup. I had three very large dumplings in a really flavorful broth.
For entrées, we ordered chicken tikka masala, specialty dish called Himalayan Makhini which was a combination of beef and chicken in a very rich delicious and spiced sauce. Not hot though.
I ordered beef sekuwa Which were very flavorful beef cubes. I also ordered a shrimp appetizer was rock shrimp in a glaze. They were good. Garlic nan was excellent! The service is excellent. Waiters and waitresses are so polite. They explain every dish, and what’s hot and what’s spicy. Meal ended with a Himalayan ceremony for my mother-in-law‘s birthday. They gave us a silk scarf came up with a gong and put a mask on her and did a ceremonial tradition. She loved it. Love this place, it’s always consistently excellent

As a regular customer , this was perhaps the first time my wife and I got disappointed by the food ... It was very light on spices (e.g not much flavor & taste) and the server mixed up our order and my plate did not come back at the right level of spaciness (i.e. it came not spicy at all and I had to ask for extra hot sauce and chopped chilies)... Will definitely go back hoping this was just a bad day in the kithcen.

Excellent food and service. Staff very welcoming. The food is different from your standard Indian food to make it worthwhile to go to this restaurant. Try the Chili Chicken appetizer. The Sha Faley are good though a bit more spice would make them tastier. The Tibetan bread is unique and delicious. For the mains we loved the Chana Masala (Chickpeas), the Chicken Zalfrezi and the Chicken Curry. They bring a lot of rice with each main dish so unless you plan to eat it all or want a doggie bag, best to ask them to bring fewer orders of rice.
For dessert, the kulfi is delicious.
Not very expensive and great value for the quality of the food.
And as a plus -- the bathroom is always spotless.

What a gem! Had lunch there with a new friend, and my only sadness was that we were the only people dining. I will go back there again and again.

The ambiance is nice, the food was delicious and the portions were generous. The menu had a lot of choices. We and the couple next to us had a chuckle when I asked for a vodka martini with a twist and was brought a martini with a maraschino cherry!

It is always consistent deliciousness at Jewel of the Himalaya! We ordered chicken and beef korma, chicken tikka masala and Makhini chicken and beef. The Makhini combo was awesome in a great spicy tomato sauce. The korma was a delicious blend of nuts in a golden sauce. Very delicious and satisfying. The tikka masala was creamy and very flavorful.
Loved all of it!!! Everyone was happy!

Glad that you asked! We both ordered vegetable curry. After an hour our waiter told us they didn’t have vegetables. They offered aloo gobi. We’re not fond of potatoes but figured at least it would have cauliflower. It arrived with just about 90% potatoes. We’d skipped lunch so my husband said, “Just eat it. The Irish survived on potatoes!” The couple right next to us who’d ordered eggplant and spinach didn’t look too happy either. But we couldn’t hear them well. (See noise level, ambience.)

This restaurant is one of my favorites. Not only is the food excellent, the service is also excellent. The staff truly makes you feel welcome. We had samosas, chicken tandoori, chicken tikka massalla, shrimp bryiani, nan, and it all was delicious.
