Himalayas Restaurant post-quake

Himalayas Indian Restaurant was located at 830A Colombo Street.  It was damaged during the Canterbury earthquake on 4 September 2010 and was eventually demolished on 2 December 2010.  The restaurant has since moved to a temporary location on Main North Road.

According to the restaurant's website, Prime Minister John Key ate there several times.

Very soon afterwards the owners announced plans to rebuild a new Himalayas Restaurant on the same site with signage indicating it would be up and running in mid-January.

Himalayas rebuild underway

Construction on the new building began in January but was halted by the 22 February quake. In the meantime Himalayas continued by offering a takeaway/delivery service from Blenheim Rd premises.

Eventually work on the building continued and the restaurant re-opened on the same site on 21 September 2011.
