Restaurants Jongno-gu
4 out of 5 stars

Although Everest restaurant may not look like much from the outside, this self-effacing restaurant offers up some of the best Indian food in Seoul. Consistently packed with loyal customers of all nationalities, Everest's food speaks for itself. The curries at Everest are what differentiates it from other restaurants of its kind. The palak paneer is creamy and rich and goes perfectly with an order of garlic naan, served piping hot. Presenting a perfect balance of spicy and sweet, the chicken and mutton masalas are also fantastic. Top off your order with a fruity lassi and a side of samosas, which are served with a memorable mint dipping sauce. Although the food keeps diners' attention, a glimpse around the place will have you feeling as if you're dining on the Indian subcontinent—prayer wheels, colorful photographs of the Himalayas and upbeat Bollywood tunes complete the atmosphere.
