About The Everest

In the beginning, sitting down and deciding on somewhere to eat that will please the whole bunch is a daunting task. You set up base-camp by your computer, review your forward party – any vegetarians? Gluten-free? Nothing spicy? – and then ascertain the mountain that you have to climb. At The Everest in Edinburgh’s Old Town you can take away all of the stress. They have every base (camp) covered, with a menu that scales the heights of Nepali cuisine, and at prices that are far from vertiginous. Head up to their Home Street location and the closest to the North Face that you’ll come across is your jacket.

More about The Everest, Edinburgh

Nepali cuisine is a fusion of Indian, Tibetan, Chinese and other influences, and at The Everest on Home Street in the Old Town, they are serving the whole range. They take in the diverse recipes of their homeland and cook them using locally-sourced Scottish ingredients, allowing both authenticity and freshness to come to the fore. Edinburgh is a long way from Kathmandu – though the hills and weather might make some Nepalis feel at home – but you can get a true taste of the Himalayas at The Everest.

With a range of curries, starters and side dishes available at The Everest in Edinburgh’s Old Town, it can be hard to decide where to start. Here’s our list of Kathmandu’s and don’ts. We recommend going for a bara, a traditional Nepali dish of lentils and spices to kick off your meal. Treat the whole party to a sharing selection of mains, indulging in a combination of Indian and Nepalese dishes: Himalayan chicken from the tandoor, raksi chicken, cooked in rum and coriander, as well as the more standard madras and dopiaza options. A few naans, of course, on the side, and you have yourself a meal to feed a whole Gurkha regiment. We’ve run out of Nepal-ling jokes now, but if you get yourself down to Home Street in the Old Town, we promise they’ll happily provide you with a few more: that last one was abominable.

Friendly and attentive staff. A good selection of food choice on menu for both starter and main. The food was tasty and there was plenty of it. I will definitely return here.

The food was delicious. We had starters and Mains and everyone enjoyed their meals. I would definitely recommend the momos. We went on a very quiet night.

The food is a glorious mix of Nepalese and Indian, the Kukuri beer is a cut above (sorry) the usual lager, and the staff are fabulous. It's a popular restaurant, but the guy who served us remembered what I had ordered the last time I had been there, a month earlier. The Momo are truly spectacular. If you haven't experienced them already, get on and do so! You will very soon find that you have joined the happy band of regular diners.
