I crave this place all the time!

The staff may not be the kindest but, it makes it up in the food. I never really liked curry before but my goodness do I crave curry now. I am a big lamb fan and nice I found my favorite dish I always get the same thing every time. I get the Mutton Curry with the basmati rice. I... read more

Usually Indian food outside of India, USA, and United kingdom is worthless. Especially in North and SE Asia. This restaurant happens to be the worst I've ever had. I ordered the lunch set. The curry was so small, it had about 10 tablespoons in it, not even joking. The chicken tikka masala had 0 pieces of chicken in it. What... More

The place is walking distance from JW Marriott on Dongdaemun square, where we were staying. It is not on a main street but it is not difficult to find if you have spent a few minutes looking at a map. When you get to th eplace, make sure that you go up to the second floor and not stop at... More

Everest, tucked away in an alley close to Dongdaemun station, is one of the nest Indian/Nepalese restaurants in Seoul. For a start, the atmosphere is lovely - the place is beautifully decorated, and they play good music (Indian/Nepali). They have an extensive, very veggie-friendly menu, and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The service is friendly and efficient, and... More

great food quality and service, along with value for money. Location is not very good but it had got authentic tasty Indian food which is rare in Seoul, since most of Indian restaurants in Korea moderate their spices to accommodate the taste of Korean customers.

We're Indian food lovers and recently wrote a strong review for the Taj Palace, having visited in December. On this trip to Seoul we found ourselves in a different part of the city and, considering the excellent reviews on TA, we were keen to visit Everest. All in all, the visit was fine - ambience, service and food were all... More

Many people rave about this place but I have to say it was just average. The food was good and the service was very good but I wouldn't rave about it. They say they are a Nepali restaurant but I found the menu to be mostly Indian food. If you are in the area its a good choice but I... More

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.
