Really Authentic and Yummy!

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... read more

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

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 dinning companion had the same except his was the... More

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...

We had a pre-flight dinner here. Told the staff and we were in and out on an hour. Yak Momos were great. Lamb curry was tender and spiced to order. The goat was tasty but tough. The Kathmandu Coffee was superb. Brewed with milk not water and spiced like Chai.

Visitng St. Paul and wanted to pick up Indian food to go, to bring to my sister's apartment. Read good reviews online and chose to call Everest on Grand to order take-out. Phone service was neither friendly nor unfriendly, but less than average in appreciating the customer. The food was OK, but the tandoori chicken was overcooked and therefore dry... More

We ate here on a week day, electing to try the buffet. It's an unpretentious, casual atmosphere, not fancy at all. The food was quite tasty, though one might want to avoid the buffet if they don't like spicy food. Several of the choices were on the spicy side, which we enjoyed. But people were also ordering off of the... More
