Great Food

This is my favorite food on Grand Ave. Take out is great but in eating atmosphere, if improved, would give this restaurant a rating of 5.

A great dining experience. My friend and I had not eaten here so we stopped in. The service was amazing and the atmosphere was astonishing. We asked our server what the most popular dishes were and what she would eat if she were having dinner. She was kind enough to take us thru the menu and explain it to us.... More

Wonderful selection of ethnic foods, done very nicely, service was attentive, with the owner himself on stand-by and making sure we have everything to our taste. I personally don't like very spicy foods and my order was done as I asked- but later I wished I stuck with the original intent of the recipe and had it done not "Mild",... More

I highly recommend this place! The service was quite friendly and the food was served promptly, hot and fresh! Everything was perfectly spiced and delicious. Try the palak paneer, it was excellent and the daal was the best I've had. Go go go!

The service was incredibly bad, and they only brought out part of the order. The food was bland and mediocre. I would avoid it.

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 achars, fresh veggies, yogurt sauce and many other choices.... 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
