On the recommendation of friends, we had dinner at The Everest Restaurant (in the old church on South Mall), serving traditional Nepalese/Indian food. It was a very good choice – we had pappadums to start; vegetarian samosas; Navartna curry – traditional Nepali vegetable curry available in a variety of ‘heats’ (we went with ‘hot’ – very happy!); Plau rice – multi-coloured rice cooked with whole spices; garlic naan. Of course, we ate too much, but it was such ridiculously yummy food.
The service was efficient and friendly and they were sincerely happy that we were enjoying the food so much! While we were the only ones eating early on a Thursday night, they did a roaring trade in take away.
Highly recommend The Everest.
