The portion size is just right. The dishes are amazing. I couldn't tell you what makes it Nepali specific - it was great Indian food as far as I could tell. I would definitely come here again.

I lived in Seoul for 7 years and I love Indian food. I've tried several other restaurants in the city and I've always come back to Everest (even though it was an hour subway ride away) the food is a good price and consistently good. Accessible by either dongdaemoon or dongmyo stations. Kind of hard to find after that, but... More

Easily our favorite Indian/Nepalese restaurant in Korea. Let's be clear, the food is what keeps us coming back to Everest, not the decor. As others have mentioned, Everest is due for a remodel. However, if you are able to look past the dated decor, your taste buds will thank you. I am partial to the Chana Masala and Aalu Paratha,... More

I went there for my first dinner in Seoul, it was not easy to find the location, its hidden inside a side street and not the main street, once there the setting and food were good, spicy and lots of variations, the mutton meat was less than average, but the bread and curry were great.

Very well done! From the curry to the naan and the other ten bowls and plates we had spread across our table...we figured we could never finish it all. Great service and all for a very reasonable cost. Easy to find...follow the previous posts

The Everest restaurant is located on the second floor of a run down building in an alley between Dongdaemoon and Dongmyo stations. It serves (Nepali?) Indian food and the style is very authentic in the sense that it is very close to what you get in India, versus what you get in London or New York. The dishes are reasonable... More

The best curry restaurant in Korea. I have visited this place for a long time. This place has the best nan and samosa especially! So crispy than the other indian or nepali restaurants. It is a little bit difficult to find if you go there first. The place is basically close from the subway.

I went to Everest because of their many good recommendations. The chicken curry I hab was delicious but really not much. Main courses vary from KK 7,000-10,000 not including rice or bread. I found that the servings for this price were too small even though tastewise is was good. The location itself looks a bit run down. Service was fast... More

Situated in a alley in Dongdaemon, had a dinner with family. As athe title says, value for money. Not as posh and tasty like Ganga. But somewhat similar to a Indian Dhaba, has a mixture of Indian, Nepalese and Chinese food stuff. But cheap and value for money. Food was ok. Not very tasty.
