Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food here is wonderful. The layer upon layer of flavour in the dishes is truly amazing. I would recommend eating in so you can get the food fresh off the grill/pan. They also have a BYOB policy with a very small corkage fee. The owners are very friendly, and they employ some very polite and attentive waiters and waitresses.

Great food and first class customer service make eating here a tasty treat. The people of Barnstaple are lucky to have this gem on their doorsteps - it’s even on Just Eat. The dishes and flavours are authentic Nepalese and took us back to a holiday we had in Nepal pre Covid. The Chefs Specials are very good indeed we tried two of them - can’t remember the names but one was first on the specials menu and the second was last in the list.

We travelled to Devon from the midlands and found Everest as an online recommendation. Booked in advance and weren’t sure when we found the place looking like a tiny takeaway. We needn’t have worried - service was excellent and the food was freshly cooked and phenomenal, particularly the chilli paneer. Would massively recommend this place to any curry fans!

Probably rates amongst one of the worst meals we've had. We are great fans of Nepalese food which makes it worse. We ordered lamb momos and the Everest Mixed Grill Sizzler. The momos were badly unfrozen as the dumpling was falling apart and the filling was tasteless as was the dipping sauce. For the Everest Grill suffice to say that several lumps of overcooked meat on a bed of burnt onion should never cost 14.99. To top it all, a half an hour wait and continual bickering coming from the kitchen

I’ll start this review by saying how much I used to enjoy going to this place. The food, the atmosphere, service and prices were great. However, some of this has now changed… I attended a family meal of which there were 13 of us. Due to the numbers we all had to pre-order our food and pay a £10 deposit person, which is understandable. We all arrived at the time we booked and were placed on a table where we were all bunched and squashed together. When a table adjacent became free, we enquired if some of us could move to it, to which we were told no. This table was then empty for the entire time we were there. Our food began to arrive quite quickly. However, instead of serving people’s s curry dishes and rice and other sundries together, some people had their rice served first and then had to wait 20mins for their curry to arrive. Some people also had this the other way where the curry was served and then had to wait a lengthy time for the rice etc. Either way, one part of your food was guaranteed to be cold! If you were lucky for you food to turn up cold, spare a thought for the people who were told that they had now run out of some their food, so they could not now have it. I thought the fact that we had to pre-order would guarantee that we would have what we ordered, does it not??? Now, normally this is a great little place where you can take in your own drink, they’ll supply some glasses and some water too. Not everyone took or had a drink that night, yet come the end of the night the owner had decided to charge everyone corkage regardless of the fact that had a drink or not. When this was contested, the owner started to become aggressive towards some of us. The rip-off tactics didn’t stop there. Even though we had all paid the deposit, the owner conveniently seemed to forget this and tried to charge us all the full price and not deducting the deposits. His anger continued and tried to make out that this was all our fault and that we should have ordered and paid differently?! So, there we have a it. What was supposed to be a lovely family evening was ruined by a greedy and hostile little man. There was a time that I used to recommend this place to everyone I knew. Unfortunately, now it is the complete opposite, and I will never go in there again.

Visiting Barnstaple, found this little place which looked more like a takeaway than a restaurant. So pleased we went in. Delicious Nepalese cuisine, prepared and cooked in the same room, with just a counter between the kitchen and tables. If you’ve not had Nepalese before, the Everest specials use authentic Nepalese spice mixes - very tasty.

We've been here on numerous occassions over the last few years and is one of our favourite destinations for food. Lovely couple Romi and Milan cooking away in the background never fail to please with outstanding Nepalese food. The Momos are superb and to be fair so is everything else.Bring your own Alcoholic drinks with a very small corkage charge to pay for the disposal of bottles etc and the cleaning of glasses provided.One of the last times there we squeezed up on the same table as Drew Pritchard from Salvage Hunter who was in Barnstaple filming.A friendly welcome always and a fat belly to go with it too.Just Lovely.

Don’t be put off by the appearance from outside like we did when we arrived. It’s currently covered by scaffolding and it is pretty small inside. We had booked this restaurant based on the reviews on here and we were very glad we decided to give it a try. The food was really lovely and the service was great. I’d definitely go there again if I return to the area. The chicken in my curry was very tender, I’d go as far as saying it was the best cooked chicken I have had from and Indian/Nepalese. To note, the restaurant doesn’t serve alcohol but they are more than happy for you to bring your own. If you forget before you go, there is a little Tesco’s just round the corner.

In Bideford for a few days but dire reviews for the three curry places in town, so took a bus into Barnstable to try this place on the strength of comments here. REALLY glad I did! One of the best meals I've had in ages, lovely flavour, decent portion size and piping hot. On a cold February Tuesday night most of the other local restaurants looked pretty empty but every table here was full, mostly with people who seemed to come regularly and know the owner - always a good sign. Not the cheapest place, but certainly great value - thoroughly recommended and will return if I'm in the area again.

7 of us ate here and all had different choices all of which were delicious . We all chose dishes with a Nepalese origin and they were very interesting . Expect large portions and to be offered how hot you want the dishes . Everything was beautifully cooked and served very promptly . It’s very small but we were fitted in comfortably . You need to bring your own alcohol . All the staff were very friendly and it was a very good experience

We keep returning here as we really enjoy the food and the friendly, yet professional service. The food is excellent and I really enjoy the nam breads, which are thinner than the ones you usually see. The menu has a good selection of dishes, including the popular dishes you expect to see on an Indian menu, plus some special Nepalese dishes. Already planning our next visit….

I stumbled across this restaurant whilst working in Barnstaple today. Since moving back to the area 2 years ago, our family haven’t really found an Indian restaurant that we’ve been completely happy with. So I decided to try this for a takeaway. I have to say that considering we have tried and tested Indian food all over the UK and in our countries, this is by far the best Indian/Nepalese restaurant we have come across so far in this area! The food was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and we will certainly continue to use this restaurant going forward. Great service too! Thank you Everest Gurkha Chef.

Sparkling water barely sparkling. Small special rice very overpriced at £5.49 grams Ben the modest surroundings. Staff nice but far too many items on the menu to have them all freshly made.

I asked the barista in Cafe Nero where to get a good curry from and he recommended this place. He said something along the lines of ‘it doesn’t look like much but the food is fantastic’ - he wasn’t wrong! Not the cheapest curry I’ve ever had but definitely delicious! Staff were also very friendly and polite. They do a mix of Nepalese and Indian food, we ordered some of each and it was all amazing. It really doesn’t look like much from the outside but I would highly recommend a visit.

The setting/restaurant is not obviously delicious but the food is. There were six of us which meant we took up almost half the space. Starters of salmon, chicken and lamb were good sizes and flavoursome but not so much that they detracted from the main event. Lamb bhuna and a huge variety of unusual chicken dishes were nicely accompanied with soft and crispy naan and subtly spiced pilau rice. I am NOT an expert on Nepalese cuisine but this made a really nice change to the usual Indian/Bangladeshi curry houses. Staff were very friendly and cheerful.
