If you enjoy Indian, Nepalese, and Tibetan cuisine, I’ve got a great tip for you! You must visit the Himalayan Grill when you are in Flagstaff!
This lovely little place is located on the west side of town, right off one of the main roads in Flagstaff. It is not pricey at all, there is a lunch buffet, and they offer delivery as well. They are open 7 days a week from 11:30 am until 9:30 pm.
We stumbled upon this place during lunch time – lucky us – and took advantage of the buffet. I was a little worried that picking from the buffet was going to be a hit or miss, since we had no clue what was what. We picked a little from everything and by the time we got to the end of the table, our plates were just overflowing with food. We sat down and pretty carefully (at the beginning) tried everything and all of sudden the plates were empty.
It was a ridiculous amount of food and all I could think about was: Would I get judged if I got up again and loaded my plate one more time? But then I realized that everyone else was too busy stuffing their faces and they would never judge me…they understand me.
It might not seem like too much food but then you try them and you just want to keep eating…
And if as this was not enough, they bring some garlic flavored pita to the table because go big or go home!
At this point there is no turning back. You tried a bite of the pita but OMG it was so delicious and ….what self-control??
You must remember one rule when you enter the front door though: You can’t let your thoughts wonder off and think about bathing suit season coming up because there is just no point and that does no good for anyone. Your husband is busy enjoying his food, he doesn’t want to listen to you whining about your belly rolls, plus you are a semi-responsible adult, you made the decision on your own to get more food. So be quiet and eat your food.
The wall next to the entrance door is decorated with all the awards and recognition that the restaurant has received in the past.
The other wall has photos of famous sport teams, athletes, celebrities, and politicians who have paid a visit to the restaurant and enjoyed their stay very much so.
One of their latest guests was for example, Bernie Sanders…
Here you can find the restaurant on TripAdvisor and see all the well-deserved love they have been receiving.
Leaving the place we ran into some people who were going in. It was funny to see how they looked at our filled tummies and nap ready faces and headed in, accepting their faith, knowing this was going to be them in a short period of time.
