Food at Everest is genuinely different and interesting! Thank you! I have eaten there several times and each time have experienced a totally different kind of meal, slightly Indian, slightly Thai, slightly Chinese. The team there are some of the friendliest people you will ever likely meet and you know what sometimes the service is not super quick but what I want is good food,interesting food, friendly service and to feel like your custom is appreciated. If you are just out for a nice evening, don't want to rush (so many places seem more interested in getting you in and out the door in the shortest time possible) I cant recommend them highly enough. Special note goes out to the Chilli lovers, some of these dishes are seriously hot...take some of the 3 chilli challenges! Be seeing you all very soon...

We have been meaning to go to this restaurant for some time now as it is within easy reach and we had heard a lot of good things about it. Finally today we went along for our anniversary meal and we were not disappointed.
The first thing you notice is the friendly welcome by all of the staff, immediately acknowledging you as a valued customer. The menu is very different from your average Indian Restaurant (Scallops, Venison and duck dishes for example) and it was fun looking through all the choices.
When the food arrived it was hot and delicious. If I was being critical it could have been garnished a little better as it looked a little plain but the taste made up for that.
the manager comes round to make sure everything is OK and you get the impression that he genuinely cares rather than the usual obligatory visit. The prices are good for what you get and it was comparable to most Indians where you would get inferior food.
All in all it is a restaurant I would recommend to friends and we will certainly go back.

Recently visited with my partner, the food was a step up from your every day Indian, very reasonable prices but what stood out the most was the customer service, they couldn't do enough for you, welcoming and extremely polite could not fault it. Would definitely recommend for a laid back meal any day of the week.

We have been going to Everest Ghurka for a while now and have only just got around to writing a review. We always take friends and family whenever they come to visit and are never disappointed.

The food is exceptional. We weren't sure what to expect from a Nepalese, but there really is something for everyone. From your usual curries (the dhansak in particular is excellent) to specially cooked Nepalese dishes - it's all beautifully cooked and packed full of flavour and not oily or greasy at all. Make sure you try the Everest Ghurka special - a sizzling platter of chicken, lamb, prawn and salmon.

As well as the food, the service is one of the reasons we keep going back. The staff are so polite and attentive and always are happy to see us.

The restaurant is truly special and one of the best we've experienced in chelmsford, and reasonably priced too. Don't miss out!

I have been to the Gurkha on three occasions now and the welcome is great each time. The place is always clean and tidy and the food makes a really nice change with dishes fresh, healthy and full of fantastic spice and flavor.I love it and look forward to eating there again in the near future.
Great food and great staff. Highly recommended!!
