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

I highly recommend this for something different. I had never eaten at a Nepalese restaurant and decided to check that one off my list of new quisine. Nice, small neighborhood place with simple decor. It appeared to be popular with families. Very clean. No loud music or TV's. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I was with a friend with... More

I haven't enjoyed a restaurant meal this much in years. Great food, generous portions, friendly staff. Ordered Yak Momo as appetizer with Chicken Tikka Masala. Both were great, especially the chicken. Friend had Turkey Meatballs and they were very good as well.

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
