Everest Indian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I loved the food, but we will not return due the way that we were treated. When we arrived we told the waiter that we had an Opentable reservation and were using a $25 credit that we had earned. When it was time to pay the bill, we were told by the female owner that they were not accepting gift certificates. After much discussion the male owner then politely told us that he never agreed to accept Opentable credits. This writer walked him through the process and explained that he need to run the card as credit and not as a gift certificate. This worked. However, the female owner refused to give us eye contact and pleasantly said thanks to other patrons as she turned away from us and obviously gave us the cold shoulder.
Been awhile since I ate here and that's my loss. Maybe it's the case of absence making the heart grow fonder, but, for whatever reason the food has never tasted better. I have always enjoyed their cooking but this time it was outstanding. As always their standard vegetable pakoras were excellent and another, Chaat Pakora, that is sauced was outstanding. The Chicken Tandoori was one of the best I have ever had. Even the white meat showed no evidence of being over cooked and/or dryness - tender, moist and perfectly seasoned. The Chicken Tikka Masala also benefitted from perfectly prepared chicken. The "salsa" served with the free papadum is addictive. Still the best Indian Food in the area.
This place is tucked into an older strip mall that I had never noticed before. The food while sort of Americanized was still really good. In fact the Indians at the table next to us seemed pleasantly surprised. I was with my mother and as I spent my high school years in Delhi. We were both very familiar with Indian food. Spicy here is very mild in India. So realize that when you order.
Hadn't been here in years, had lunch there last week and it was delicious. The staff is great and very attentive, the ambiance is cute and the Naan is great! I had the chicken tandoori and it was heavenly. Huge portion, I took half home and my family tasted it. They loved it so much, we got takeout from them the next night!
Highly recommend, its in a strip mall, but who cares? Very reasonably priced too which is another 👍🏽 plus!
Everest Indian Restaurant serves good Indian and Nepalese food. They have a good selection of dishes and will accommodate the spice level requested. I would recommend this restaurant mostly for take-out. The restaurant itself does not have much atmosphere, and the service was just okay.
The food is good, so doing take out works great!
I'd love to say my experience that night was wonderful, because ive eaten there many times before and it's always been fabulous. In this instance, I had family in town for a wedding so I booked a table for 10 at 7:30pm. Guess what? When we arrived at the restaurant it was CLOSED! It said right on the door " closed Wednesday ". So then, how did I make a reservation on Open Table ? How did I alter the reservation twice with no problems? How is Open Table not aware that this restaurant is closed on Wednesday? Did the folks at Everest not receive my reservation? Because they sure didn't call me to tell me they were closed!! Extremely disappointed doesn't begin to cover it. Ten people standing outside a restaurant that is closed, not good! Not good at all!!
From the moment we walked into Everest the staff was extremely attentive. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. The staff was very inclusive of our children, making small talk with them. The pace of the dinner was great and the courses were all impeccable, you can tell that at Everest they love what they do.
A search for restaurants that could accept a party of 12 produced Everest. (A little unlikely, as it turns out, since the place is small, but I'm not from the area and didn't know that). When we arrived, the hostess said that they don't take OpenTable reservations, and didn't seem to think that we were her problem. While she clearly couldn't seat us, if she had apologized or seemed at all sympathetic, it might have been a more pleasant disappointment.
The food was the reason we chose this restaurant. We went to see One Hundred Foot Journey and knew we would want Indian food. The restaurant was about half full but appeared to do a big carry-out business. Drink orders were taken (a decent list of wines and not so usual beers) and delivered fairly quickly. I ordered garlic basil naan as an appetizer, and my friend ordered vegetable samosas. Both were tasty when they finally arrived. We waited a very long time for our Chicken Vindaloos while dealing with the uneven wobbly table. (It wouldn't have helped to move--the neighboring table was just as wobbly.) From arrival to when we finished paying our check clocked in at over two hours. That's just too long for me.
No doubt this remains one of the top Indian/Nepalese restaurants in Petaluma, the food is lovely and well priced, only wish they would have some of the wines that would match their cuisine better, like some good Riesling, Gewtztraminer, Merlots and Pinot grigrios and Rose's. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Really like Everest and the food. It's also true they need help managing reservation load. On two recent occasions my reserved table was given to walk-ins in the minutes preceding my (on time) arrival. 12/25 (phone res) and again 12/27 (OpenTable). On 12/25 they did move people around and accommodate us--place was packed. They discouraged us from ordering tandoori dishes ("takes 25 minutes"). Ironically, the non-tandoori meal took 90 minutes to receive! On 12/27 (just two days later) we couldn't bear it again so left when they acknowledged they were unable to honor the res. Anyway, the food is excellent and their hearts are in the right place. They just need a little chef Robert Irvine from Rest. Impossible to tune up the front of house.
This is our favorite Indian restaurant in Petaluma, and we visit it at least monthly. The food is Indian with Tibetans options, such as Momo. The meal starts with a papadum appetizer with an inviting relish. Dishes are served in inviting round bowls, for ease of table sharing, and spicy levels can be had at any of three levels, so it works for everyone's taste. Rice is available in white or whole grain. Among our favorite dishes are the apricot chicken and the lamb dishes. The saucing varies with dishes, as they should. A strong vegetarian offering, includes vegan options. The service is attentive and unintrusive. The space is small, yet not noisy. A consistent performer.
A good place to go for Indian food after a movie or as a casual eat-out. The staff was very gracious, but they brought both of us the same delicious tandoor shrimp even though my friend had ordered something else. We were going to split and thus have 2 different dishes, but the shrimp was so good we didn't really mind. Wine list offers good selections, and the staff is too sweet to get upset at about the mix-up. We will definitely eat here again.
The outstanding food completely overcomes the poor service. Actually, the servers worked very hard and were very cheerful (and apologetic) but they are just very understaffed. There were 6 of us, and we had lamb, chicken, salmon and veggie dishes. My tandoori Salmon was the best salmon I have ever had, anywhere. Apricot chicken, lamb dishes, everything was excellent. One exception was the Naan. We ordered garlic naan, got plain naan, and then discovered that it was actually the garlic version, just so mild no one could taste the garlic. But this little place could become the next Amber India, which started in a little strip mall store front similar to this place. It's that good. The drive from SF to Petaluma was absolutely worth it.
Food was very good, but don't expect much meat or poultry in these dishes. For this reason, the food is a bit over-priced. The best part of the food is the excellent sauces. The Apricot Chicken was excellent. Service staff are very nice and responsive but they need more servers.
