I first ate here in 2004 and returned again in 2012 when I moved to that part of Seoul. In Dongdaemun you have many choices for Indian food, though most of it is rather low quality.
On my last visit to Everest, I was surprised to see that the interior hadn't really changed at all in the 8 years since my previous visit. The walls are splattered with food, and the furnishings are stained. It's really a gross interior and should have been refreshed years ago. Then again, maybe this is part of the experience you're looking for. It was also uncomfortably hot inside. The air was stagnant and made dining something we wanted to do quickly so we could leave to get fresh air outside.
As for the food, it was one-dimensional. We ordered various curries, and they all tasted about the same. One of the curries was ridiculously spicy--and we eat spicy food all the time, as is the case for most living in Seoul--but the spiciness was the only thing you could taste in that curry.
In the end, between the dingy atmosphere, uncomfortable air, and terrible food--we left. We never leave an Indian restaurant with food on the table, but this time we did, and we headed over to Namaste for what we knew would be an excellent meal.
