Indian restaurant to open on city’s east side

Feb. 27, 2018

The east side of Sioux Falls is getting an Indian and Nepalese restaurant.

Nandi Siwakoti, his two brothers and a friend are opening Himalayan Indian Cuisine in a retail center on Arrowhead Parkway.

“There’s nothing on this east side,” he said of Indian restaurants. “I’m doing this for the east side of Sioux Falls.”

Siwakoti said the food will be Indian and Nepalese. The restaurant will offer dishes such as chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, lamb curry and dumplings.

Himalayan will offer a buffet at lunch, or diners can order from the menu. Hours will be 11 to 2:30 p.m. for lunch and 5 to 9:30 p.m. for dinner every day of the week.

Siwakoti is a native of Bhutan who spent 18 years in a refugee camp in Nepal. He and his family came to Sioux Falls in 2008. He graduated from Dakota State University and is employed as a quality auditor, which he will give up to work at the restaurant. His brothers are Anena and Metrika, and their friend is Sarbajit Rai.

Remodeling work started at the site at 5310 E. Arrowhead Parkway earlier this month. Siwakoti hopes to open at the beginning of April.
