Mt. Everest India's Cuisine

$ $

When it comes to Indian cuisine, Mt. Everest prefers to let the food do the talking. The stand-alone restaurant, just west of The Strip, has a barebones dining room with red walls and diner-style booths. The focus is on Northern Indian dishes like Tikka Masala, Lamb Biryani and Tandoori Chicken (cooked in a traditional clay oven).

"As the name suggests, a few of the recipes have a Napalese influence," notes Rob Kachelriess of Thrillist. "Like the crispy samosas and chicken momo dumplings."

Indian restaurants often have lunch buffets, but Mt. Everest put its version on hold during the pandemic. However, prices per dish are more than affordable with hearty portion sizes. Save room for the mango lassi, a drink so thick and sweet, it could be dessert.
