The menu at Taste of the Himalayas tantalizes taste buds with a mix of spices mingling in meat, seafood, vegetarian, and vegan dishes. Diners can opt for the chicken tandoori plate, in which the chefs marinate chicken in yogurt and spices with the tenderness of a mother washing chocolate from her child's elbow before broiling it in a tandoor oven ($15.95). In the lamb vindaloo, boneless lamb pieces and potatoes backstroke in a pool of bhindalu gravy ($13.95), and salmon fillets glide through a curry in the macha ko tarkari ($13.95). Meat-free fare includes the bhindi tarkari, fresh okra intermixed with sautéed onion ($10.95), and the tofu saag, fresh spinach stir-fried with tofu cubes and spices handpicked from the Himalayas by mountain-climbing foodies ($10.95).

Taste of the Himalayas

Skewers of chicken and shrimp simmer in a clay tandoor oven, filling the dining room with the heady aromas of ginger and cumin. Tandoor baking is one of many time-tested cooking methods that the chefs employ at Taste of the Himalayas, along with tossing shrimp with traditional Indian spices and stuffing steamed dumplings with minced cabbage and homemade cheese.

The restaurant's decor matches its cuisine with regards to cultural authenticity, with a mural of the Himalayan countryside spanning an entire wall with saturated blue skies and green foliage. Its swirling designs echo the curves of carved wooden chairs and heavy brass serving bowls, and white tablecloths are exact replicas of those worn by real Nepalese ghosts.
