“Great Lunch Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Consistently good quality lunch buffet with a reasonable choice and great price. Minor drawback is that there are too many tables jammed into a tiny space.

“Best Indian Restaurant anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I have been going to this restaurant for the last 5 years with my boyfriend. Even after we moved to Toronto, we keep coming back here for the curry - it is that good! We have tried restaurants in Toronto but have yet to find one we enjoy more than Mount Everest.

Probably have tried the majority of the chicken and lamb dishes on the menu. The dish we enjoy the most is the butter chicken. It has large pieces of chicken and a creamy tomato flavour. Any dish with lamb is cooked very well - lamb is very tender and just falls apart. The aloo naan is also our go to naan on the menu (although any option is delicious). The prices cannot be beat. Most of the meat dishes are 9.95 and if you pay for your order with cash you get an additional 10% off.

The owners of Mount Everest are very kind and are great at recommending dishes if you are unsure of what to get. We usually get take out and they will have our order ready for us to pick up on time.

If you enjoy Indian, this restaurant is worth the trip!

“Best curry I have ever had, anywhere, ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I love this restaurant!! It is one of my favourite places to eat in the world, and I'm lucky enough that it is in my hometown! If you like curry, you will love this place. It is the best curry I have ever had, period. Everything is so authentic and fresh, it never seems too oily, and it is all absolutely delicious! Order a couple of different dishes and share with everyone to experience it fully. Just to be clear, I am heralding the food here, not the restaurant itself. The restaurant has several tables, though the floor space is extremely limited, and the decor is nothing to write home about. But the food is so phenomenal that it cancels out any other possible shortcomings. Go here- you will not be sorry!

“Best Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I have been several times. Love the platers for two. Veggie is my fav....
Owners will come and confirm that everything was to your liking. Don't be afraid when you walk in - it's not a trailor

“Every Bit a Good as eating in India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The Mount Everest Restaurant is a bold TEN. For us it is worth the drive from central Etobicoke to Pickering Village for very authentic, cooked to order Indian food. We were in India in November and ate at the best hotels. The food at Mount Everest is every bit as good as the food we had in India. Prices are very reasonable and service is quick and attentive. They offer four preselected ``packages`` (for about $20 for 2 people) with very interesting varieties plus a full menu if you prefer. On Sundays they have lunch and dinner buffets.
It can be very full on weekends, so make reservations.
