The quality of the Nepalese food at this Derby restaurant is as high as Everest. See what we did there… A wonderfully modern restaurant, Mount Everest Gurkha is a city centre restaurant with a refreshing approach, by which we mean cholesterol-free cooking oils and genuinely fresh produce each used to create Nepalese and Indian dishes that will never leave you feeling horrible after you’ve eaten them. On top of that, the menu here on London Road – within walking distance of Derby train station – is put together by a award-winning chef who knows this part of the culinary world like the back of his hand. Get involved as soon as you can.
Excellent service, cooked quickly, complimentary poppadom and naan and the portions were a very good size. The quality of the food was good too. I’d go back every week if I didn’t live three hours away! Definitely recommended
Excellent food and service. We arrived early and had to wait for our friends to arrive, no problem waiting and well looked after. At the end of the meal we were left to chat without any pressure to move on - even when everybody else had left.
Local family-run restaurant with amazing Nepalese curry and good prices. The location and décor may not be super classy, but the food is high quality and the atmosphere relaxed. Food usually arrives pretty promptly, but ask for the bill early if you need to leave in a hurry. Highly recommend anything from the “Chef’s Recommendations Nepalese Dishes” section of the menu, especially anything with lamb. Their 'normal' Indian curries are pretty good too if you aren't feeling as adventurous, but that's not why the locals go there. If you aren't familiar with the area, then be aware that parking is mostly free around the station after 6pm, but can be difficult to find a space. I normally park in the layby on Hulland St, which usually has room for 3-4 cars that time of night. It's my favourite place to eat in Derby and I highly recommend you give it a try!
