Himalayan Cafe , Pasadena (Himalayan/Nepalese/Indian) $$ ***7 out of 10***
Himalayan café is definitely not a mind-blowing dining experience nor is it likely to give you an unforgettable perception-changing meal. However, it is quite capable of giving you a satisfied tummy with its decent portions, tasty food, and great service in a clean and bright environment for a fair price. Located in Old Town Pasadena, it’ an easy stop-in if you’re looking for something Himalayan/Nepalese/Indian with a lot of spices and flavor. Their chicken mo-mo seems to be their most popular dish. It’s a classic Asian-style chicken dumpling that comes with a tasty dipping sauce.
Their lunch buffet is a fair deal too. If you’re not familiar with the food, it’s a good way to try a few different things without committing to an entire dish. It’s basically standard Indian fare consisting of Naan, a couple of curries, some salad, Tandoori Chicken and a little something sweet for dessert all for $9.99/person everyday from 11:30AM to 2:30PM.
