“Still among the Best”

Himalaya Friends Corner
Ranked #40 of 116 Restaurants in Amherst
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 May 2017

Small but well appointed this little restaurant continues to serve authentic Himalayan food, since one of the owners is Tibetan and the other a Nepali. No liquor license yet, but patrons are welcome to bring their own wine or beer. For more detail, please see my earlier review.

I hesitate to write a review, only because the place only has about a dozen tables, and I don't want to wait in a long line out the door next time we come. However, the place is really great. Food was excellent: we had the chicken momo's and vegetable curry. Both were were fresh, and well prepared. They offered us three sauces: a basic sweet/sour, an amazing black mushroom sauce and a hot spicy sauce. The first was average but the latter were amazing. We liked the simple atmosphere with chunky wooden tables and chairs, and prayer wheels above each table. Give yours a spin and get a blessing from this little gem. We will be back.

Really interesting flavors with good variety. Really enjoyed the sauces on the table. Certainly worth a return trip.

We just tried this place for the first time, and everything was yummy. We had momos, curry, and mustard greens. The place is attractive and very friendly. We appreciated the opportunity to try Tibetan, Bhutanese, and Nepalese cuisine--distinctive yet not too challenging flavors. We will return.

I've had two meals from Himalayan Friend's corner, both with family, both outstanding. This little hole-in-the-wall really does it right, from the excellent Nepali curry, the incomparable momos, right down to the lentils and rice. My wife, who has spent time in Nepal, believes this to be the best and most authentic Nepali/Tibetan restaurant she's been to in the U.S., including NYC. The momos are perfection!
You won't go wrong here.
