About Spice of Himalaya

As the very first Nepalese restaurant in Darwin city centre, Spice of Himalaya offers some of the most authentic flavours south of the equator. Time-tested Nepalese recipes are made even better with local, often organic produce from the farms of Darwin, meaning each dish is bursting with honest goodness. Our favourites include, but are certainly not limited to, the paneer Himalaya oak chilli entree and the boneless lamb bheda ra plungo blended with fresh spinach and a homemade, creamy sauce. The Nepalese also love their thali, so if you think you’re up to it, why not try a thali set? You’ll be served with handmade bread and a traditional mix of vegetables, lentils, cheeses and meats. Vegetarian sets are also available, so there’s really no excuse. Located on the bustling Mitchell Street, Spice of Himalaya is well known, so it’s wise to book ahead.

Excellent food and friendly service. The atmosphere is like sitting in a friend's house eating the most delicious home cooked meal. It is really wonderful. Have been four times now.

We had a wonderful lunchtime experience of food, friendship and hospitality. Six people all from different countries worldwide, eating at a Nepalese restaurant in Darwin, Australia. The food was delicious - unanimous agreement. No MSG, very little oil, magical tastes and fragrances. The management and staff were very welcoming and hospitable, interacted with us and even joined in the photos! Highly recommended.
