Owner shares plan for city’s newest Indian restaurant

Jitendra Poudel is busy working to prepare Everest Indian Cuisine to open in a few weeks.

The restaurant, which also will serve Nepalese dishes, plans to be open daily starting Dec. 15 in the retail center on the southwest corner of 41st Street and Western Avenue. Poudel is remodeling the former Moe’s Southwest Grill space.

Everest Indian Cuisine will feature a buffet  from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. It will include 10 items that will change each day, he said. Customers will be able to choose from an extensive menu from 4:30 to 10 p.m.  The restaurant will be able to seat 82 people.

While Poudel said he knows how to cook, he has hired a friend to be the chef. Running restaurants is “the only think I know in my life,” he said.

Poudel moved to the United States from Nepal seven years ago. He lived in Sioux Falls before moving to Rapid City, where he was a partner in two Indian restaurants. He sold his interest in those businesses and a restaurant in Casper, Wyo., to return here with his family.

He said he was drawn to Sioux Falls because of its growing population.

“It’s a good place to run a restaurant,” he said.

Here’s a look at the menu:
