For those looking for good food that has great flavours and is enhanced by wonderfull spices but not overwhelmed by them, the Everest Gurkha is for you. The menu offers a good and varied choice and is reasonably priced. The staff are very welcoming and attentive and are happy to help with your choices by explaining the origins of some of the dishes and methods of cooking.
Well worth trying.

We have been coming to this restaurant on a regular basis since 2012.The food is always excellent and the service very friendly & welcoming.Whilst we still enjoy an Indian meal elsewhere in the Chelmsford area the Everest Gurkha does offer something a little different with great flavours and spices and at reasonable prices.The tripadvisor ranking is well deserved & if anything I am surprised they are not ranked higher.If you like your Indian food & have not been before give this restaurant a try and you will not be disappointed.

This is an excellent example of the very best of Nepalese Cuisine. I think it is the best Nepalese Restaurant in East Anglia and well worth the drive down to Chelmsford from Colchester where we live. The owner Harka is a true restaurateur. He has a very well trained team, both front and back of house. The dishes are all very authentic and remind me of the best meals I had in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Pam had the slow cooked Lamb and loved the rich flavours that deeply permeated the tender lamb shank. I had the Everest Special which was a delicious selection of marinated meat and seafood cooked in a clay oven. There is such an extensive choice that we will be coming back again soon to sample more of the dishes. The service is friendly and cheerful, and yet very professional. We felt very well looked after. Make sure you book in advance for Fridays and Saturdays. There is good parking in the Railway St. Pay & Display - only £1 for the whole evening..

mate booked online never got the phone call to confirm we put it down to being busy (why sign up for on line booking and not actually follow bookings through) so funnily enough no table .
Went to the ship for a drink went back no one said a thing to us
we stood there like lemons for 20 mins (minter)

food was average and getting poppadoms was like asking for the crown jewels

my friend wanted something like a tikka massala got something close to a vindaloo

wont go back stick to what i know tm2 in baddow road or zara in woodham mortimer which the owner of this place should visit to understand about customer service and decent food
