My expectations were not sky high, however I hoped for something more. The momo's were good and I thought the ambiance and staff were great. But as a former resident of Nepal and the Tibetan region of the Indian Himalaya, I expected more from the entrees. It wasn't bad, but it's not the Himalayan flavor I hoped for.

Food is delicious and will bring us back but the service last time was lacking. Took so long for waiter to come to table we almost left. Server never came back and checked on us once. The Jogi Takari curry (medium +) I had was outstanding. Medium + definitely brought on a little sweat.

Lighter on the Curry than Indian restaurants, Everest offers a variety of dishes, vegetarian and with meats that are tasty and spiced to your taste buds. Very nice staff. All food off menu is prepared fresh. They also have a lunch buffet. Live the veggie momos and kabuli chana (chick peas). Can order noodle dishes and rice dishes with chicken... More

The food here is basically Indian cuisine. There are many vegetarian options, many of them made with tofu. There are meat and chicken dishes as well. For lunch on Saturday, we chose the buffet. It included a salad bar and several vegetarian dishes including pakora, chickpeas, okra, rice, cauliflower with peas, and nan. They were very good and not at... More

I have driven by here many times, but yesterday was the day to try it. This restaurant is directly across from the Kowalski's grocery store on Grand, so it is very easy to find. We were a party of 4 stopping in for a buffet lunch. I was the first to arrive at 11:25AM, but the door was locked. They... More

Dinner was delicious and had leftovers to take home. We enjoyed the Veggie Pakora and the pork and turkey momo for appetizers. The chicken tikka masala was especially good. The one thing we have found is that the mild, medium and hot ratings are not very consistent. Sometimes medium has me sweating this time it just right with a nice... More

I've been to this restaurant several times for lunch and dinner. The first time I went a couple years ago, I thought it was just fantastic! I was just getting into Indian food and we ordered a selection of different things to try. I've been back for the lunch buffet and a couple times for dinner. Each time I go... More

On our first trip to Everest we were so looking forward to a flavorful, robust indian experience. Unfortunately t was far from flavorful. I ordered the chicken tikka masala and my partner ordered the lamb tikka masala. Both of them, while served in a buttery, creamy sauce had absolutely no flavor. I don't mean to say that they were too... More

My girlfriend, the Queen of All She Surveys, is a vegetarian, and it can be hard to find a restaurant with real vegetarian options. Consequently, we are frequently at Thai restaurants, Chinese restaurants, and Indian restaurants. Everest on Grand is one of the best restaurants I've been to, especially for vegetarians. A tremendous selection of vegan, vegetarian, and meat eatin'... More

I went to Everest on Grand with a friend for lunch. I've been to Nepal and was craving Momos. I'm not sure why everyone else is raving about this place. In my experience, it was below-par with half-steamed momos, and bland dal. Additionally, the quantity of food you received and low quality, for the high price was shocking! I will... More
