The Himalayan Peak at SFU sells Indian food. You can either do takeout or eat in. They are best known for their all-you-can-eat buffet since its the best bang for your buck if you eat a lot.
Since a few of us weren’t super super hungry, we decided to pick a few items off the menu for lunch to share.
There’s lots of tables available and its not too busy.
Butter Chicken ($14) has boneless pieces of chicken breast cooked in creamy sauce. The flavours were good, but it could have been a bit stronger.
It tasted good and its always best with an order of naan or rice. There was a good amount of chicken, but it is quite an expensive dish.
Naan ($2) is what we chose to get with the butter chicken. It was made fresh and really good!
Chicken Naan-wich ($7) has very little ingredients inside, but I guess thats to keep it from falling apart. Since the naan is also thin, it has good proportions. Too bad there really isn’t a binding agent to really keep it all together.
Thats what the center looked like.
Twin Peak Samosa ($5) has a crispy outer layer with potatoes and peas inside. You get 2 types of sauces too.
In the middle of the two samosas are a type of a bean curry. It went well with the samosas but the raw onions was a tad much.
Overall, it was a good food but certain item can be a bit expensive. Flavours are a bit mild to suit general people.
Words of Wisdom:
- Regular items on the menu are quite pricey
- All you can eat Buffet at noon is quite popular
- Naan-wich is recommended or the paneer
- No free parking anymore
- SFU Student? Free Parking at UniverCity (they don’t check the 2 hr limit)
