Himalaya Restaurant in Hong Kong

Today is the Easter weekend, I've decided to do something special - Himalayan lunch. The Himalaya Restaurant has been around for some time. As it is nearby my home so I notice it. I've tried its buffet before. Today is Saturday, so I go there for a relaxed lunch.

The set lunch is only HK$70 (US$9) and looks attractive. I have no doubt in this restaurant's authenticity. I see all Indian, Nepaleese, Himalayan faces from the chef, waiter, cashier and boss.

If you love spicy food, this is a good place. Before lunch, I try the crunchy bread (I don't know the exact term) with some of the spicy sauce and had my tears running.

My Himalaya Lunch

Tandoori Chicken 炭燒雞
Lamb Curry or
Chicken Makhani 咖哩羊肉或咖哩牛油雞
Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables 炒雜菜
Pullao Rice 印度黃飯
Garlic Kulcha 烤蒜蓉餅
One Soft Drink 汽水一杯

Wasn't the Tandoori Chicken a little over cooked? The burnt bits looked quite scary. I ended up had to remove them with my fingers. I liked the Chicken Makhani very much.

The Himalaya Restaurant is quite decently decorated

As usual in any Indian restaurant, my lunch was wrapped up with some sugar or candy. The other looked like some herbs but I didn't try it.

For US$9, it is comparable to Continental USA. But you make Tsandoori too? That's great. But I notice that you serve soda in a glass, quite unlike the West in cans or plastic bottles. The wedges in the basket also look like custard cake. I can see that this meal is not spicy and it may be the food preference of Hong Kong.

It is only casual restaurants will serve soft drinks with cans or bottles. With fine dining restaurants charging service fee, they usually serve in glasses. This meal was not quite spicy. But the red and green sauces were really hot.
