Mount Everest, Nepali cuisine; Telegraph Av in Berkeley

This is our go-to place. It is the site of the former Tandoor Kitchen, on Telegraph (corner of Parker). Quite inexpensive.

Our favorites are Papadi Chaat, Veg Momo or Chicken Momo.
Also Okra (Bhindi), tandoori Lamb.
Mount Everest Herbal Soup -- good on a cold day.
I like the Goat curry; they don't always have it on hand. It has a lot of chewy bits so some others in our group don't care for it.
They have brown rice, a big plus for us. The garlic naan and onion naan are good.
We have ordered the dishes made "spicy" which is just right for us -- they also have "extra spicy" but we don't do that.

One of the few dishes we did not care for was Kukhura Ko Sekuwa: Chicken cube marinated with garlic in a famous Kathmandu sauce cooked in clay oven.
Also the Dal Bhat Tarkari turns out to be a "thali" platter with a lot of small dishes, hard to share with more than two people.

Every month or two, they have a new set of specials -- organic, and a bit more expensive than the usual items.
Very nice young people on staff.
Corkage $6; I think they have a decent wine/beer list, though we always bring our own. In warm weather they have seating outside on an upstairs balcony.
