Himalayan Kitchen April 3, 2011

Dinner last night with my mom and the D.  We’ve eaten at this popular Kaimuki restaurant three or four times now and though it’s a fun place, we still haven’t figured out how to order to get a good balance.  Entres come with white rice. Our order came with two bowls of rice.  BYOB with no corkage (big plus). Reservations are good idea (leave a message on the answer machine).

  1. Naan – 1 piece per order- very nice with a green ginger sauce, included.  $2     2 orders/3 people
  2. Mix tandoori grill:  chicken, beef, and shrimp.   I find this dish dry and salty.  There is an orange yogurt-like sause and small salad with it with the green sauce.  Not bad but not the best value.  $18
  3. Lamb curry:  Lamb chunks in a deep brown curry.   Lamb a bit on the dry but really tender but not tough.   $16
  4. Yellow Dahl:  Lentils in a sauce.  A good value.  $6
  5. Rice pudding – uhh ok , little odd for me.  arourn $7

Next time,

Tika Chicken Massala, possible something with a Korba sauce.    Maybe  try a Vindaloo.  A chutney would have helped.

I brought six or seven containers  for leftovers in the bag with the wine.  While that is a little strange, it worked awesome to bring back the leftovers and saved us from asking  the restaurant for seven take-out containers, or having to mix everything up in a leaky Styrofoam box.

$50 +-
