India and China are countries with cultures that revolve around food, and at Everest Abercorn in Stanmore Hill – on the road between Watford and London in the Middlesex suburb of Stanmore – you can taste the both of them. Indian and Chinese cuisines sit side-by-side on the menu and there are fusion options as well, just as one would find on the streets of northern India and Nepal, as well as in Chinese restaurants up and down the subcontinent.
The menu at Everest Abercorn is a fusion of Chinese and Indian food, in both starters and mains. To begin with, there are samosas and wontons, paneer tikka and sesame vegetables, and to follow one can pick from such favourites as butter chicken and lamb bhuna, Singapore noodles and chicken Manchurian. Throw in a selection of sides and sundries and there is a fantastic meal in the offing, so head down to Stanmore Hill in the North London suburb of Stanmore – just remember to book a table first.
We had a great evening here. The food was really nice ( try the chilli garlic mogo) with a good selection for all. The staff were very helpful and polite. Would recommend this restaurant!
We had a small party of 7 people - a work colleagues meal. Great staff, delicious food, wonderful experience - will definitely visit there again.
Lovely well presented food that was very tasty indeed. Mongolian Paneer was especially great. One of the best Chicken Tikka Massalas I have ever had. Service is excellent, waiters are fast and efficient and great welcoming staff. The place is clean and fresh and all said a very nice experience.
The food was so lovely and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. I love Everest. It made my birthday so special. It's so tasty.
The service was excellent from when we arrived, the football was on that night and the waiting staff were happy to put the screen on as a few of the other diners had wanted to watch the game. The orders were taken promptly and the drinks arrived first and food shortly afterward. The staff were keen to ensure we had all we needed. The mains arrived and we shared a rumali roti-which was amazing!! The dal makhani was exquisite. You can always tell an amazing food place by how well the simple things are done. Considering how many venues that Everest have, they have managed to replicate the formula with a great ambience!! I can't wait to return with more friends next time. Thank you Abercorne!!
Staff were very attentive, food came on time and the correct items (surprising for some places this can be hard), it may be due to us getting there early though. The food was amazing, we went for a birthday and took a cake which they were more than happy to bring out and even put on candles which we forgot. I would say the portions are very big and we ended up ordering a lot of food but took a doggy bag which was great the next day! Venue is nice and I beleive it does get lively from about 9pm with a dj.
Very impressed. Food was wonderful, very fresh, tasty and authentic. Service very friendly and attentive, although a couple of things got missed or forgotten, were soon put right. We are a group of 4 very discerning curry eaters so very unusual for all of us to be impressed. Not cheap at £40 each including a bottle of wine, few beers but we did over-order on the food and had some to take home. Will definitely visit again.
Excellent food, and the service (Mo was looking after us) was friendly, attentive and super quick - he even recommended a main course dish for us, which didn't disappoint. The place looks fabulous, and the prices were actually very reasonable! The TripAdvisor reviews I had read prior to going were thankfully not borne out by my own experience. Would definitely go back. This is one of the top Indian pub/restaurants in NW London now, which is pretty impressive given the number of nice places to go to these days.
Very good service, friendly, very good environment, restaurant was 80% full, quality of food was good, seating was very comfortable, we were given a glass walled room. Overall it was a great experience to dine a Everest Abercorn, will recommend anytime
The food is fantastic and the portions are large. Not complaining! At least you get an amount of meat in the dishes unlike most Indian restaurants. This was the 2nd visit we had made and it was very busy again. Mostly Indian people which is a good sign. Service very attentive. Even though we booked for 7.30 and had to wait 30 minutes the staff were very friendly and the wait went quickly!! We will be regulars.
Food was good quality and tasty. Single portions were good for 2 people unless you have a huge appertite. We sat in a boot, the cushions on the sofa side have started to sag so made you sit low making eating a meal and little awkward. Chairs were fine though. Service was fine and you weren't constantly interupted with 'how is your food'
Delicious authentic food. Great staff. Good atmosphere and decor. Great for big groups. Very big restaurant with one wall of window showing the chefs at work in the kitchen. Excellent selection of vegetarian, meat, fish and seafood dishes which were explained by enthusiastic staff to us uninitiated! Very good hygiene standards.
food was tasty and fast service for a friday evening although it was very noisy and loud which is annoying. something i found rude was that the waiters expect us to order more food than we wanted and when we ordered only 3 dishes, they didnt look happy. customers should be treated the same despite how much they spend. we felt we werent welcome coz our bill was only £30.
The food was amazing and great value for money. The only thing that let it down was the service. Our waiter wasn't particularly friendly and hardly smiled. If some of the staff showed a little more interest this place would be great. Having said this the lady that greeted us and showed us to our seats was very nice. I would definitely go again because the food was so good.
We have been to this restaurant many times, on our own and with friends and the food has always been good. The service is also very good. The only downside is that it's always busy and if you haven't booked you could be disappointed.
Excellent food as always. Service was a bit on the slow side but it was a busy night so can't be too harsh. One of our favourite restaurant chains, follow the everest brand where ever he opens as Milin will not let you down with the quality of food on offer.
Normally go to the Honeypot branch and decided to try this one. Restaurant was near empty when I arrived but after 10 minutes sitting down, no one asked if I wanted a drink but 5 minutes after that, while I was still waiting for the rest of my friends, I was asked if I was ready to order! Later, before we finished the food, the waiters wanted to clear the table. Deco is lovely and food is ok. Prefer the Honeypot branch.
Busy Saturday night expecting slow service however was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the orders were turned around and the food was very nice. Friendly staff and management and we were never hassled to quickly order between our starters and main courses. Overall a great atmosphere and dining experience.
The restaurant was too noisy with certain tables next to us having guests which were swearing. The waiters did not advice us in good time that they were closing our part of the restaurant and rushed us in choosing our desert and having our coffee. We did not have desert in the end as the waiters were hovering around us making us feel uncomfortable and they were even clearing the table before we had finished. Overall not a good experience!
Service was slow. Food was great as always. Very tasty. But despite not being busy, took serveral reminders to get fresh set of beers. I assume that staff were tired after a very busy Sunday lunch time. Did not make a great impression on our guest who were being introduced to my favourite place to eat in north London
We expected the food to be as good as all the other Everest branches but were disappointed with the food flavours. When you arrive the staff are very helpul but after you have been sitted and as the restaurant gets busier we had to literally look out for the staff to come and serve us. Prices are a bit more expensive than the Honeypot branch. I think I will stick to my nearest Honeypot branch
The ambience was good and clean.. The staff was really courteous and very child friendly maybe it was Sunday nobody complained since the kids were having a good time..Starters were really good main course was a bit on sweet side but again that's my viewpoint
Great venue,service and food.As for comments on value you may have seen 3 curries , 3 starters ,breads 3 bottles of wine with beers and doft drinks etc for a party of five is £138 expensive?
The food was really good service was excellent will definitely be going back. The only thing I would say against it ,is the background music was Just a little bit on the loud side .
Food was very good and so was the service and decor. They even provided cushions for the children to reach the table more comfortably. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we will definitely be going back.
This place has a good ambience to it. The service can be a bit shoddy but we went on a busy friday night so it was expected. Overall really good food and place to meet up with friends and family.
Excellent food and service. Spacious place and can cater for large groups. Separate drinks area nice decor throughout. My favourite place to host large and small groups. Only setback is parking area limited.
Been here a few times now and the food and service are excellent. Last night the chef even came to our table to querie a request one of my friends had for less garlic in case they were allergic!
Great and simple to use booking system which was replicated by the restaurant. Food and service was great as standard at abercorn which is the reason why we return regularly. Thanks you
Superb food. Ambience was amazing. However the tables were placed very close to each other so felt congested. But the food was probably the best I Indian I have had.. highly recommended.
Excellent food ordered more than we should have however , Excellent service most accommodating. Most definitely would recommend it to my friends and family. a Big change from how it was historically
Nearly 10 different items ordered of which only one no one touched after trying .Good service by waiter called Deepak even though the place was busy . Slight expensive but worth going for food and drinks . I
Staff very attentive and the main waiter remembers each of our names which was a nice touch. Food was gorgeous and they gave big portion sizes! I would recommend this restaurant and in particular the chilli mushroom starter
Starters were excellent, absolutely would recommend the mixed grill to everyone, and king prawns were fab too, although very pricey. Main courses were tasty, and comparable to local alternatives. I did feel that our lamb karahi was a bit padded out with veggies, but quality was good.
A very enjoyable experience. Excellent food and very attentive staff. Even thought the place was pretty full the food arrived quickly and was very freshly prepared. I would go there again!
When we arrived we were offered a table by the door, not in the main body of the restaurant. We refused and were eventually given one near the bar. We were so far away from the rest of the diners we might just as well have ordered a take away and eaten in our own home as there was no ambience.
Lovely restaurant with freshly cooked delicious food and very friendly staff. Service was very good too.Parking is very easy here as the restaurant has its own huge car park.
The food was amazing, however the service was a bit slow. Also the prices were really expensice so if they were lowered I would go there more often. But there is alot of space to park cars which is always a plus.
Scrumptious food, lovely interior, hospitable staff and we had a fab time. Would go back again and again and again just to try everything on their extensive menue
Excellent food. Good size portions. Particularly liked the chili paneer and lamb Tika. Service was ok. Overall recommend this restaurant. It is a very nice place to go with a crowd of people.
The food was very nice and the waiters were very helpful - even on a busy Friday night! If the music wasn't so loud - I would definitely have given it a 6!
The food was good. Staff were very accommodating and the service was good. Our group size had increased from the original booking but the staff were very quick to arrange a larger table.
Very pleasant, large portions and super flavours. rather busy so service was very good but a little prolonged. I would suggest that they serve popadoms whilst ordering/before serving food to deal with this.
Food is good but it gets annoying when four different waiters come and ask if everything is ok within 5mins of each other. Also the seats are too low for tables - made us feel like we were back at school!
Service was good and food was excellent. Clean facilities and place was packed. We have been there a number of times and the food is constantly good.
Very tasty food - Good choice of starters dishes and Main dishes --- always consistent in quality and quantity. Very clean place and friendly staff. Good ambience.
Excellent food, we travelled an hour to get to the restaurant and were not disappointed. service was good but not great - had to go looking for our waiter for more water
Amazing food and good portion sizes (especially the starters) however the restaurant gets very busy on fridays and we had to wait a long time to get our food. Prices are slightly higher than other similar restaurants in the area.
Horrible service. I do not understand how this restaurant is rated a 4 for food hygiene. We ordered a vegetarian starter and biting into it, we pulled out a long black hair from the dish! Secondly, we ordered a vege salad and there were pieces of chicken in there! The food came 45 minutes late and when asked the waiter when the food will come, he replied "your next"! Seems like he hadn't a clue what to respond! When the food came, the incorrect cutlery was given and it took another 20 minutes for them to give me a fork! Food was all cold. After waiting for a fork, I couldn't eat the food anyway as I couldn't trust it seeing the black hair in one of the dishes. Absolutely Rubbish! Not recommended at all and would never go there again. Hopeless staff and management. Doesn't know the meaning of customer service and apologising for their mistakes.
Excellent food, excellent service. The restaurant decor is first class and our party was well looked after. We enjoyed the evening very much and will return.
