    Although this restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, it's a real gem. The inside is decorated nicely, and the servers are friendly and accommodating. But it's really the food that stands out -- it's really great! My friend and I tried that Nepali specialities, and they didn't disappoint. I can't wait to bring my family here the next time we're in Berkeley!

    We booked a reservation last minute via open table for 10 people. When we arrived the restaurant was already busy and they seemed surprised when we were there but quickly jumped into gear setting up a large table. The service was excellent, the food arrived was very good and arrived quickly. We had a lovely evening, we would definitely go back if we are in the Berkeley area.

    My chicken dumplings were good, but my companions' dishes were lacking in substance; a few small pieces of meat floating in sauce. The service was poor in that my dish arrived after my husband finished his, I ended up bringing half of mine home. I think the worst part is the poor ventilation; my hair and sweater stank of pungent spices and oil, I ended up washing my cloth and took a shower even after driving home with my window down in the cold night air to get rid of the smell. Though the spices tasted and smelled good while eating, I didn't want to smell like my dinner. More candles or better lighting; we had to use our iPhone to read the menu.

    Went there while up North...really liked it. The food was rich in flavour but was a tad salty for my tastes. Otherwise excellent.

    Reservation wasn't even addressed. Could've walked in. Food was good. Server gave us 3 dishes when we only ordered 2 and swe'd ordered 3. It's all good in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the food and had lunch with the leftovers. Real Gold beer is a trip!!!

  • Indian food in the Bay Area
    OmnidinerVIP
    Dined on 6/15/2012
    Indian food in the Bay Area has been getting much better in the last few years, and this place is raising the bar even higher. The "Kurauni Jhinge" special (prawns with milky almond coconut gravy) was extraordinary, and the Navratan Korma was rich and flavorful. The special naan (stuffed with coconut, cashew, raisin and cherry) was light, yummy, and crispy with no burnt spots, and the drinks (a lemonade and a lassi) were delicious and as beautiful as fancy cocktails.

    The food was good but the portions are so small its disappointing and you can easily forget how good the food is because you're done in a couple of bites. Nothing else notable about this restaurant to comment on. Hope they will read the reviews and improve on the portions.

    We had a quick meal here before heading to Berkeley Rep. The portions seemed small, but the bill was only $45 for 5 people! Food was tasty and not at all oily. Lamb and chicken tikka masala were both good. Wish we had tried some vegetarian dishes.

    We were attending a concert nearby and needed a meal in the South Campus area. This restaurant appeared on Open Table and we decided to give it a try. We were surprised at the quality of service and the food. The staff was genuinely welcoming and very attentive. The diners were a mix of students, families and older couples such as us. We found the food to our liking, not spicy but tasty and well-prepared. Service was prompt and attention to detail was evident. We will return to try other items on the menu.

    A very friendly place with delicious Nepali food. I loved the Nepali lemonade (a little salt made it tasty). We had some special foods on the organic menu. Outstanding casual restaurant. Great value.

    We took my niece there after her nurse pining ceremony and we had a blast. The waiter was awesome and the food was "off the hook". They had tons of vegan options which was great because both of my nieces are vegan. We will go back again, we highly recommend Mount Everest Restaurant.

    We had an excellent meal. Chicken Tikka was moist and flavorful, excellent channa masala and spinach with lentils. A very pleasant neighborhood meal.
