My friends Lesley & Debs & I visited Great Himalayas Nepalese Restaurant on the evening of Thursday 23rd July 2020. It is a new restaurant, opening on a site occupied by at least 2 previous ones. Operating in challenging times, but with the advantage of being located in the "Northern Quarter" of Lord Street, it is at the busier end of town. Inside, the venue is clean, smart, well laid out and easy on the eye, with a distinctly Nepalese theme - clearly a lot of thought & care has been put into upgrading the premises. And with a new and quite fabulous open kitchen at back. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. 2 or 3 other tables were occupied, otherwise it was not busy. The menu is well laid out and explanations of the various dishes are provided and proved extremely tempting. After some superb papadums & homemade dips, we opted to go straight to the main courses: I ordered Hariyali Chicken ( £9.95 ) - "chicken cooked in blended spinach, cashew nut, garlic, onion and Himalayan dried herbs." It was absolutely superb, tasty, creamly and luxuriously indulgent. Mushroom Rice and an Aloo Jeera (which I asked to be cooked with a fiery kick) completed my meal. Dishes were well presented, skillfully-cooked & clearly contained quality produce. Portion size was good. Service was relaxed, friendly and yet efficient & professional. The draft Everest lager is really good. And the white wine we had was amazing, although sadly, it`s name escapes me. Prices are slightly above some Indian restaurants in the town centre, but I can assure you all that for the quality, it offers excellent value for money. So in summary, the venue is smart & comfortable, service very good and the food was truly fantastic We will be back. Highly recommended. I`ve now found the best South Asian restaurant in Southport town centre. PRO TIP: parking on Lord Street is free after 6 pm. The restaurant is surrounded by quite a few decent bars. I`d recommend Ra Bar for a drink before and/or after your meal, which is only a few door away and has a large terrace for outdoor drinking in decent weather.

As being Nepali ourself we wanted to try the Nepali taste in Southport when we went on our day out from Liverpool.. And ohh woww food there was delicious. We loved Momos (dumplings) and the Aloo bodi Tama(vegetable dish) was soo tasty with rice or naan.. Staffs were very friendly and the environment+music made us feel like We were in Nepal somewhere..It wasn’t very expensive either compaired to some other Indian restaurants.. so was worth a visit and will go again for sure....

This place is a fantastic gem of a place. Situated at the far end of Lord Street, near to the trendy bars, it deserves more credit. My wife and I visited on a Friday evening, expecting it to be far busier than it actually was. We were greeted and seated quickly, by very polite staff. The menu is expansive, as is the drinks list. I started with the Chicken Lollipops, and my wife had prawns on a light pancake, both were delicious, and perfectly cooked, not too spicy. The portion size for a starter was large also. For mains I had Prawns in a tomato and onion sauce, with a pancake style flatbread, whilst my wife had a vegetarian set meal, my apologies I cannot remember what they were actually called. Both meals were stunning, really flavorful and tasty, again the portions were large. We had starters and mains, 2 rounds of drinks and the bill came to less than £70. Amazing value for money, we will be visiting again in the future.

As an African/American I had not tasted food that tastes so good that its flavor are out of this world. The starters........yummm, the main dishes, oh my god, just the smell is mouth-watering. They were so good they are second to none. We went there while the eat out to help out scheme was going on. The restaurant was packed people were queuing to be sited down, they seemed angry. I hate to break it to you people, this is a hospitality sector and come on knock some senses back to your brain and give those staffs from slack they are human too, not slaves. Despite the busyness and the crazy customers, the service was top notch, the price compared to the food you get is nothing even when i had to wait longer then I anticipated. Highly, highly, highly recommended. You have to visit this place and try at least once even if you are far away.

From the seconds we walked in to this restaurant we felt welcomed. All the staff were very knowledgeable about the menu. We had an extremely fussy eater with us who was a total curry/spice novice, the staff went through the whole menu and explained everything in depth and he ended up with a meal that was tasty and the portion was very generous. The images was mesmerising and the restaurant was spotless. Our family can’t wait to return.

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant, firstly pre-lockdown and secondly tonight, we booked in advance as we heard that it has been busy and thankfully we were lucky enough to grab a table for 8pm. when we arrived we were greated by friendly staff who asked us to wear mask whilst moving through the restaurant and sat us down at our table which was shielded by plastic screens making my partner and I feel very safe in these difficult times. The food came very quickly and was cooked to a tremendous quality, my partner is a vegan and the staff and chef's went to great lengths to make sure all the food for her was vegan friendly which was a very welcoming touch. Even though the restaurant was quite busy the staff made the atmosphere of the restaurant feel calm and nothing was too much to ask from them. All the staff were constantly smiling and were all very attentive throughout the evening,they were not afraid to have a chat with the customers adding to the friendly atmosphere. Our second visit here was definitely a success and we will definitely come back again, I strongly recommend if you have not visited that you give it a look as it is definitely the hidden gem of Southport.

Visited for the first time yesterday following recommendation from friends. What amazing food! Flavours were zingy and fresh and everything we tried was delicious. Waiting staff were helpful and friendly and made sure we were happy with hot spice before we ordered offering recommendations and descriptions of the food. We felt very comfortable with the efforts the restaurant had gone to with regard to Covid too. We were reminded to wear a mask if moving around the restaurant and each table was screened from the next. On a Thursday evening, the place was very well supported and had a great atmosphere. The star of the show is the food without a doubt. Our first visit but definitely not our last!

How good was it to be back dining at Great Himalayas Nepalese Restaurant & Bar? The service is top notch here, from the young lady handling my telephone booking request, to the warm welcome on arrival , the farewell after the meal and everything in between. Quality of the food is consistently high. I sampled a starter that is a recent addition to the menu - Veg Manchurian. ( £5.95) It was sublime. A mix of vegetables formed into 4 soft balls & served with a deliciously sweet, sour, hot and very rich topping. For a meat-eater, this was veggie heaven and comes highly recommended to anyone who hasn't yet tried the dish. My main course was an old favourite - Lamb Saag. (£11.50) The meat melted in the mouth and the thick spinach sauce was flavoured with garlic cumin & ginger. Better than any saag dish around. I also had a lentil dish called Jhaneko Daal (£6.50) which was thick, rich and full of flavour. Oh, and I nearly forgot. I also sampled my dining companion's starter, which was Lamb Momo (£5.95). Nepal's National Dish, these are steamed dumplings filled with lamb mince, ginger, garlic, coriander and a hint of chilli. They are divine. I've not seen them on a menu before, which makes a visit to this restaurant even more compelling. All helped along with a pint of their Nepalese draft lager, which sailed down (£4). I'm am so pleased to have this truly superb restaurant in Southport. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed. But a word of warning, once you've visited, you won't ever want to go back to your old favourite "curry house" ever again!

First of all, they are busy, really busy, called several times, fully booked, fully booked then finally got one on a quieter day. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful with serene music going on background, the staff were attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding. Not a big fan of poppadoms but the prawn puri and the chicken lollipop was the best as well as 2 chicken dishes, I forgot the name were out of this world. Will definitely come back for more to try the whole menu. One of the BEST and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, be sure to book before going there.

Eaten here several times with family and also with friends The good is amazing, lots of choice and staff couldn’t be more helpful. My husband wasn’t sure about the curry so staff member asked him what flavours he liked and he had chef make special sauce. Atmosphere is also very welcoming. Already booked again 👍🏼

The great Himalayas, From the moment we entered the restaurant we felt the warm and friendly welcome from the staff. It was Asif they was welcoming us into their home rather than a restaurant. The restaurant was very busy but that didn’t impact the amount of service we got. The staff kindly explained the food and drink menu (even allowed us to taste wine before buying). We had a basket of papadums and had the lamb momo and Pepper chicken for starters and mains we had lamb shank and chicken bhutuwa. I couldn’t fault a single thing. This restaurant is an asset to Southport and I wish it and the staff all the best. Welldone great Himalayas team. I will be returning when I’m back in Southport.

We have never eaten Nepalese food before and after watching Santosh on Masterchef we wanted to try it so whilst planning our weekend away in Southport a restaurant search bought up Great Himalayas so we booked it immediately. I am not really that good with spicy food so (unlike my husband) so I was a bit apprehensive and discussed with the waiter. He asked me questions about previous foods I've eaten and how I found them and based on that made some recommendations. My husband absolutely loved each dish he had and mine which of cause he tried. I enjoyed but it was still a bit spicy hot for me however I finished everything and was still smiling at the end. This is no fault of the restaurant its just my own taste, my husband is still raving about the food to anyone who will listen. The service was a bit slow however with most places having only just re-opened this is to be expected. The only one down point is when we came to pay we were told they take cash only. In this day with the pandemic people rarely carry cash and we didn't understand why we weren't told earlier than when we needed to pay the bill. Thankfully we had enough money between us but there were other tables where someone had to leave the restaurant to go to a cash point before they could pay and leave. I'm not sure if this was due to the machine being down or they just don't take card payments. However that is the only negative in what was otherwise a great night with lovely food with good service. My husband would definitely recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed our food at this lovely restaurant. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and happy. The service was prompt and the selection of food was good. We chose the lamb dumplings and kebab to start with followed by the chilli chicken and Gulmeli chicken with a rice and garlic naan to share. We both loved the food and will definitely be back again.

Arrived without a reservation bang on opening time and was welcomed into the heavenly scented restaurant. Advice welcomed from our server on our options to eat, nice pint of Golden Himalayan to accompany our delicious meal, rich, creamy and spicy, not too spicy but spicy enough to taste all that had been put into our meal. Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience, 10/10 yes we most definitely will be back .

To get the obvious and and most important thing out of the way, the food was excellent. Whilst I've had plenty of Indian, Banga and Pak curries in my time, Nepali is a delicious take on the theme. The only complication was not really knowing what we were ordering but five of us took a stab and we weren't disappointed. Please note this review covers the restaurant in the CoVID-19 pandemic and this visit occurred two days after a three week second wave lockdown. Areas for improvement, maybe we just had "that table" but whenever the waiting staff circled the restaurant we were missed. As such drink re-fills were frustrating, difficult and rare. One waiter had some friends in the establishment (fair enough) but that did mean every time he passed he turned to share a couple of words with them, which meant that everytime he passed, we were missed. Staff also seemed to spend too much time chatting with each other at the bar (eg. I noticed) and I noticed we didnt have a dedicated waiter so drive-byes were haphazard at best. The restaurant has a peculiar lighting, whilst some bulbs are out, those that worked were a cold white light and generally too bright. But the food was excellent, so very recommended you try it for yourself
