A HUNGER buster, that’s what they call it.
And clearly, that’s exactly what it is. I mean, just look at it. That’s not a child’s hand next to it. That’s an adult human hand. And the fiancée isn’t small.
Hunger buster? No doubt about that.
If you’re being unkind, you might say just looking at it would be enough to put a person off food for life. Because obviously, it could be presented slightly better. It’s never going to get top marks for appearance, is it?
But, then, let’s be frank, when you order a dish called hunger buster, you’re not going for subtlety, are you?
So it’s a monster. And it’s monstrously good too. Doner meat, chicken tikka, lamb tikka, seekh kebab, salad and sauce all thrown onto a fresh nan, and yours (and, presumably, unless you have a serious appetite, someone else’s too) for just £10. Good value. Superb dinner.
There were two and we also had the tandoori chicken (nice and succulent), boiled rice, keema naan, and dhai raita. All in all, it hit the spot.
Everest is a family place, taken over by three brothers in September, and it gets busy but we were waiting just 20 minutes for our food. One slight criticism, the door’s a little lightweight and it gets drafty if you’re waiting but, then, the thought of that hunger buster fair warms you.
Did we mention it’s big?
