Tara's Himalayan Cuisine is about family, yours and ours. Serving authentic Nepalese and Tibetan cuisine, we invite you to experience a true taste of home.
We use mountain grown herbs and spices from Nepal and whenever possible, locally grown vegetables. Our yak is Colorado raised. All of our dishes use the finest ingredients, and are prepared with a light touch.
Tara's Himalayan Cuisine is the dream of Tara Gurung Black. Born in a tiny mountain village in Nepal, she started her training in Nepalese classical and cultural dance at age eight. In her teens she became a member of the Royal Dance Academy of Nepal and has traveled extensively, kings, queens and heads of state have enjoyed her performances.
While performing one day in Los Angeles, she had an overwhelming desire to share her Nepali culture with the people of Los Angeles. That is how and why Tara's Himalayan Cuisine came to be. Recently, she returned, after many years, to her mountain home and found its only school to be in sad disrepair. She made a commitment to raise enough funds to rebuild the school. Ten percent of profits from Tara's Himalayan Cuisine go towards that goal.
Come join us and experience the food and culture of the Himalayas, here in Los Angeles.
