The server didn't know what gluten was and I explained it to her but she had to get someone else to help us. That server didn't seem to fully comprehend it either but she was more helpful. I asked for chicken curry & she didn't know whether it contained gluten or not. The food tasted good but the service made me disappointed.
Happened upon this restaurant while visiting Berkeley. Waitress was very accommodating and aware to modify dal bhat special with lamb curry dish to be gluten and dairy free. The dish was very tasty. The staff very present and attentive. Wider menu has a Nepalise section and a wider range of indian dishes. Gets my wholehearted recommendation.
I recently went to try a Nepalese/Indian place, called Mt. Everest, with a good coworker of mine for my last day of work before heading home. The restaurant was located on a street corner on Telegraph. The outside looks unspectacular but the food more than made up for the lack of outdoor decor. Since this was my first time trying Nepalese food, I decided to ask the wait staff what they would recommend to order. They sure weren't expecting that I was going to give them the extra challenge of picking something that was gfree! Even though the wait staff were unaware of what gluten was and gluten free dishes, I kindly explained to them what I could and could not eat and based on that, they were able to recommend some dishes for me to order. I ended up ordering one of Mt.Everest's monthly specials, a delicious and exploding-with-flavor mango chicken swimming in a sea of sweet mango chutney with a side of basmati pea rice with cumin. I must say my taste buds were VERY happy with this dish! Did I forget to mention this dish was organic too? I'm sure that could be one of the reasons why it tasted so good! :) Also, one more thing I wanted to add was that the waitstaff gave our table some free appetizer! The appetizer were these lightly salted crispy rice chips called, Papadum, which I later researched are traditional crackers that usually accompany a meal in India. The crackers are made from chickpeas, rice flour, black gram, and lentils; all gfree! Props to the waitstaff for making my first experience here great! I will definitely be back to try some new dishes!
