“Great Indian food on the NW Oregon coast!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I would not limit my praise of Himani to just the coast. Himani is one of the better Indian restaurants I have tried in Oregon. Great place for a family dinner.

“For vegetarians, a big disappointment.”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

My partner and I love Indian food, and were eagerly looking forward to an Indian restaurant opening in Astoria, OR. So we had high hopes for the Himani. Sadly, we were disappointed. The vegetarian selections are limited, and not very appealing. The saag paneer is made with lumps of potatoes, rather than paneer cheese.
Meat eaters might have a better time there. But across, the basic meal does not include naan, you are not served any papadum before the meal, chutney is extra, and the prices are what you might expect for a much better meal in Portland.
Best bet is their lunch buffet. Again. not much in the way of appetizing vegetarian dishes, but at least you can eat all you want. Dinner is paying too much for too little.
Big disappointment!

“Incredible!”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Since they had just opened, they offered only a buffet at lunch, but they did serve dinner from an extensive menu starting at 5 p.m. Their lunch buffet consisted of at least 15 items, including tandoori chicken, two soups, two curries and numerous other offerings. Not to mention a salad and a dessert involving mangos.

Everything was piping hot (well, except the salad and dessert) and was excellent. We were also impressed by the cloth napkins, tablecloths and REAL cutlery. Weird, but we both remarked on it.

My friend paid for lunch while I was otherwise occupied, and when she left she said. "How much do you think lunch was?' I said it was probably around $12 to $15. When she told me it was $5.00, I was stunned!

So give this place a try. Even if you are not a big fan of most Indian food, I can almost guarantee that you will find something on their buffet or menu to like.

“Great new option in Astoria”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

This family has been serving the best food at the Astoria Sunday Market for years. I am so glad that I have so many more chances to enjoy during the week now. Fearless traditional entrees served family style. Go with a group so you get to try more items!
