Himalayan Bistro brings to Northern Colorado a unique dining experience showcasing culinary art and beloved recipes. While Indian food is rather well known and loved, few people know about food in the other Himalayan countries. Nepal, a small country the size of Illinois, is nestled
in the Himalayas between India and Tibet.
Nepalese food is influenced by Indian and Tibetan cuisine and makes extensive use of spices, such as ginger, garlic, coriander, pepper, cumin, and chilies. Owners, Dawa and Tashi Sherpa grew up in the lower Solukhumbu Valley of Nepal. At age 15 Dawa began carrying loads as a porter for climbing and trekking expeditions to mountains such as Everest and Annapurna. Tashi and her family own a popular tea house, and welcome scores of trekkers making the long hike to Everest.
For Dawa and Tashi, Himalayan Bistro is a dream come true. The menu is an ever present reminder of where they came from. They are honored to share their rich culture with their adopted home here in Fort Collins. A sense of authenticity carries overs as original photographs of Himalayan peaks, temples and high altitude mountaineering line the walls of this classy restaurant. A forty-foot hand painted panoramic mural of Everest and Nepal’s Solukhumbu Valley creates a background for any event. White linen tablecloths, delightful aroma of Indian spices and quiet music greet you as you await the delicious tastes and flavors of authentic Himalayan cuisine.
A gorgeous bar is well stocked with your favorite beer, wine and spirits. Himalayan Bistro offers an extensive menu of Nepalese, Indian and Tibetan dishes at reasonable prices.
