First meal of our trip was at Everest Indian Restaurant. They specialize in Indian and Nepalese cuisine.
Note: lunch specials are only available weekdays from 11:00am to 2:30pm
We dropped in on a Thursday (around 1:45pm) for a late lunch. The inside is massive but we were the only people dining in. They were playing an interesting mix of music (wasn’t expecting Indian EDM, but it was more chill after).
The menu is extensive but we were here to try their lunch thalis.
We were asked how spicy we wanted our dishes (mild, medium or hot); we opted for medium.
Veggie pakoras ($5.00)
You get 10 pieces with two sauces. Pakoras were crunchy and not too greasy.
Both sauces were great, especially the green chutney.
Non-vegetarian thali ($11.99)
Chicken korma, dal, vegetable balti, rice, salad and naan.
There was a good amount of chicken and the sauce was well balanced.
The dal had a hint of heat (think potentially from the gunpowder).
The vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, peas, potato) were decent.
Liked the carrots that were included as part of their Indian green salad.
Basket of naan was fresh and plentiful.
Vegetarian thali ($11.99)
The only change here was palak paneer in place of the chicken korma.
Spinach was tasty but wish they gave you more.
We’ll be back next time to try their momos.
