Utterly outstanding. Indian food in Berkeley is all pretty good, but in terms of freshness and care this place is a cut above. I like that they have lots of Himalayan appetizers such as momo. I'd also recommend their biryani and tandoori dishes. I've corroborated with my Hindu coworkers that if they have to go out for Indian in Berkeley, this is the place to go.

New to the neighborhood and wife and I loved our meals (Malai Kofta and Butter Chicken)...the flavors were top notch. Best Naan I’ve ever had! Well done, TotH!

The food is awesome! So flavorful and a wonderful introduction to Nepalese cuisine. The owner is attentive and knowledgeable. We're vegan and found lots to love. I love this spot and its connection to the larger community. Yum!!!!

I Went here the first time with my wife and we absolutely loved it pre-COVID, but they have went downhill since then. I am writing this after giving the restaurant roughly 4 chances to have my patronage. Don't call them to order because in my experience they have never answered once or called back of the roughly 8 times I tried to contact. I went there in person tonight at ~8:45 to order. The man that opened the door said they close at 8:30 when the hours post on the door clearly say 9:30pm along with several online resources that say that too. I pointed this out and the man did not know this but proceeded to close the door in my face to and say to come back when they are open. Seems completely unprofessional. Update a week later: they have finally adjusted their hours on at least this site.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Berkeley. Ordered takeout from Taste of the Himalayas tonight and it was delicious! We ordered the tandoori chicken, chicken vindaloo, plain and garlic herb naan, and rice. The meat was tender and juicy, spices and flavors were perfect, and the garlic herb naan was a great new find!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Berkeley. Everything I have tried has been delicious! I miss dining in-- they have a beautiful place with a wonderfully detailed mural on one of the walls. Every time I look at it I discover something new. Service is incredible, everyone is so nice. It is a relaxed but classy space- good for a date or a meal with friends. Check it out!!

The food here was so yummy! Haven't had nan before made with cherries and coconut. The lamb curry was great too.The best part of dinner here was the friendly staff who made an effort to make me feel comfortable.

Ordered chicken tikka masala and it was really good! Nice chunks of chicken and their garlic naan is the perfect combo.

The food and service is fantastic! Even during quarantine. The person who wrote up my order remembered my name from the last time I came and helped explain dishes I hadn't tried. The paneer is fantastic. 11/10 check this place out!
