Hawaii Kai Resident Ventures to Kaimuki for Himalayan Food


Recently we left the great choices in Hawaii Kai and drove the short distance to Kaimuki,, to try the Himalayan Kitchen:

(808) 735-1122
Kaimuki 1137 11th Ave
Honolulu, HI 96816

The restaurant is tucked away in the lot behind Kaimuk├»’s Big City Diner. The outside deck eating area leads to an elevated gazebo draped with a string of lights and colorful Tibetan prayer flags.

The staff was attentive and energetic, eager to please. We found the owner to be charming and helpful. Some people may have to wait, but when you have a bottle of wine (it's BYOB) to help pass the time it goes quite quickly. Also, we went early and there were not too many people. By the time we left, it filled up and that was on a Thursday.

As described by Honolulu Weekly, "The best time to eat here is arguably at dusk, as the fading orange-pink rays of the sun contrast with the wood interior, being further illuminated by muted ceiling lamps. One feels relaxed, ending the day along with the setting sun and a rich meal."

The menu presents Himalayan dishes, ranging from seafood to meat to biryani (rice-based) dishes. There are also offerings of more general Nepali cuisine, curries, vegetarian dishes, tandoori dishes, breads, as well as a trio of “Himalayan Favorites with a Touch of Aloha!” Entrees range from $9.95 to $16.95. Read more about the food and menu at Honolulu Weekly.

Sounds good doesn't it? This is just a sample of the great restaurants available within minutes of Hawaii Kai. Contact me for more information about our lifestyle, and to request a free Relocation Package.
