3rd time...charmed!

This was the 3rd time we've eaten at Everest, but this time we visited for the buffet lunch. It cost $11 and was wonderful. Rices, potatoes, curried veggies and a spicy curried pork w/veggies, breaded, fried veggies, roti and a dhal soup. They also have a lovely condiment buffet loaded with... read more

Fourth visit in as many years (during business trips) to Everest. The food remains really good, service is fast and friendly, and the cost is reasonable. There's a small wine and beer list. Try the momos--really excellent. This time I had half an order of momos and the vegetable pakoras (an appetizer). I couldn't finish the pakoras--they would have been... More

Food and service were very nice. A lot of food for a great price! Dishes were good, but the flavors were mild. The Samosa Chaat is my new favorite. it is like the indian loaded baked potato. Yummy.

2nd visit to this restaurant. It was Ok, but not as amazing as others have described. Food was kind of bland. Of course I could have asked for more spice. I had a veggie samosa and the peas in it were hard as rocks. Also and palak paneer, it was ok. Cheese was kinda carboardy. I've had better. Also had... More

I was in the mood for curry but didn't want to make it myself so I ordered takeout from this place. It was extremely good and flavorful! Mild is perfect for those of us with low spice tolerance but my friend got medium and loved the spices. A little pricey for what you get but the quality makes up for... More

The atmosphere is laid back and service excellent. We had samosas, curry veggies, chicken tikka masala, garlic naan, curry lamb, and chicken with noodles. All of our food was incredible... very fresh, very hot, very flavorful. Food is served family style, so if you want to try lots of different things, it's easy to do. As far as hot spice... More

We stopped for a late lunch and enjoyed some wonderful curry. There are choices from mild to real hot and I chose med +. Maybe a bit hot but it sure was good. Great service. Nan was right out of the oven warm.

We visit Everest on Grand at least a couple of times per year and have always enjoyed the food. The vegetarian options are numerous and the food is always good. Spice levels are a bit higher than your typical Minnesota indian restaurant. Their medium can really be quite spicy. (True Indian food lovers will laugh at this I'm sure!) The... More

I liked the decor with the pictures of nepal under the table glass.My order was the yak momo (stuffed dumpligs) naan ( fried flat bread ) and katmandu coffee.

My wife and I went yesterday for a lunch buffet. I am inclined to give two stars for the following reasons: *The food had decent flavor, but 90% of the dishes tasted exactly the same *The buffet kept running out of a few fishes *The buffet selection was OK, rather piddly on snack/dessert-type items. *The dining area was fairly uncomfortable...
