Himalayan Kitchen. Owned by a Nepalese chef who has worked in Indian restaurants, Himalayan Kitchen aims to serve all the cuisines of that high-altitude region. But the menu is largely Indian standards—curries, biriyanis, tandoori grills—that are the best in town (which isn't saying a lot in a town with few Indian restaurants). Nepalese dishes include momo (dumplings) and Kathmandu shrimp chili. Get a seat in the outdoor patio and don't forget to bring some ice cold beer—the place is BYOB. 1137 11th Ave., Kaimuki, Honolulu, HI, 96816. 808/735–1122.
