Ventured into the downtown branch of Everest Spice (Cnr. Ruthven & Margaret Sts.) for Sunday lunch on 16 Dec 2012. Our party of 5 was shown to and seated a table at the far end of the restaurant close to the counter above which was a tv playing a Bollywood movie. The Nepalese decor was colourful and somewhat kitsch, but did not detract from our dining experience. The front doors and windows were left ajar permanently rendering the air-conditioning ineffective and we also had to contend with a few flies. The restaurant was not busy and the service was to our satisfaction. My wife and I opted for Beef Madras and Lamb Nawabi with the usual servings of steamed rice and naan. The variation in the taste of the two curries was subtle, the Beef Madras being a touch spicier. However, there was a distinct sugary sweetness in the two dishes, untypical of authentic Indian curries.

What can I say? All the things the other reviewers have noted about the line-up of people for Take-away and the decor are true. But who cares, the food is delicious! And quite frankly we found the crazy clash of colours, Bollywood videos and mellow Kama Sutra prints on the walls endearing.

Everything was excellent best Indian I have tasted ever. Ask for the butter or mango chicken. The waiter was very nice and personable a most enjoyable experience

While I was working in the CBD this was one of my favourite meals to grab in a hurry. The food always tastes great and I have recommended many people there who also love their food.

We stumbled on this by accident, while visiting Toowoomba recently and enjoyed our takeaway Tandoori Chicken and naan bread so much that we went back the next night for another takeaway! This time it was a very good Beef Masala. It was only later that we saw the great reviews here on Trip Adviser and can agree that there may not be a great deal of atmosphere to make dining in a good option. Were we alone in finding it difficult to find good places to eat in the town - surprising, given its size?
