    Biryani and rocket naan are a hit. Lots of comments on the quality of the service but the guys were fine when I went here.

    Excellent Pakistani/Indian restaurant, one of the best in Houston. The goat biryani is superb as are the lamb samosas

    John Rowley · August 6, 2014
  • Tasting Table

    The goat biryani has a lightness of texture that's the perfect foil for a riot of dusky spice and fall-off-the-bone meat. Read more

    The Chicken Hara Masala's verdant brightness hints at a keen-edged freshness even if it doesn't warn you of the impending bloom of heat. Read more

    Don't come here expecting good service. There's one waiter and we like to call him Mr. Personality! Food is delicious, authentic Pakistani food. Go with the chicken hara masala and the gola Kabab.

    Houston Press recommends the grilled fish masala.

    I stopped going there because of their customer service. Their food is good but the way he treats his customers is just rude. The head waiter and the manager need an attitude adjustment.

    The owner is a cheater, charges more than what u order by adding gratuity of 15% even on the party of 2. I heard about this from other people but experienced it myself when I recently paid a visit.

    Himalaya is a favorite among Houston chefs because it's the best, most consistent Indian restaurant in a city that offers some seriously delicious Indian food.

    You HAVE to tip the "waiters" who do absolutely nothing for you...why? If not the big guy behind the register will catch you before you exit and demand it.. Such a bully. Thumbs down!

    The Indo-Pakistani dishes burst with spice, flavor, and comforting textures. I have had a lot of Indian food around the country, but nothing else quite so good.

    It's a dive, but it's got great, flavorful Pakistani and Indian food that some of Houston's best chefs love to eat. [Eater 38 Member]
