Noted as a "fantastic addition" to the Long Beach dining scene by Gazettes Town-News, Himalayan Grill melds the culinary traditions of India, Nepal, and Tibet. Chefs observe authentic preparation standards when preparing Indian dishes, slow-roasting chicken, lamb, and shrimp in a tandoor oven. Among a quintet of "out-of-this-world, make time stop" dishes sampled by restaurant critics of the Orange County Register, lamb masala garnered particular praise as incredibly supple and "moist enough to cut with a spoon." Ginger, garlic, and curry infuse spice and heat into most entrees, whereas saffron and cardamom lend uncommon warmth and market value to desserts. Inside the dining room, low music and dim lighting create a relaxed atmosphere. Table minders elevate the comfort factor with "fast and very warm" service.
