Wirral’s first ever Nepalese restaurant has opened in Liscard, Wallasey, and people are absolutely loving it! Mt Everest is located on Wallasey Road and offers mouth-watering Nepalese cuisine alongside Indian classics — bringing something completely new to the Wirral dining scene.
The restaurant opened in February 2023 and since opening customers have been raving about the quality and being introduced to some incredible authentic Nepalese delights. The menu is extensive, with an abundance of Nepalese and Indian options available, and the Nepalese MoMos (dumplings) and Gurkhali Chicken have been particularly popular.
We visited on a Thursday evening and sampled a number of Nepalese speciality dishes, including the MoMo dumplings that everyone has been talking about. With a simple style, prayer flags and traditional music, dining here is like as visit to Nepal itself and if you’re looking for flavoursome dishes to capture your senses, you will thank us for this recommendation!
During our visit, one customer, Adam, told us: “Absolutely stunning food. Took me right back to India! What absolutely amazing staff too, it was great to meet such a passionate community-conscious owner. Our review: 10/10 and our new favourite place to eat!”
The new restaurant has been created by Nepalese culinary legend, Deepak Khadka, who has enjoyed great success with Everest Kitchen in West Derby. Deepak Khadka has made a name for himself as one of the region’s leading Nepalese chefs and is well respected in the Nepalese community. An active member of LIVNEC (Liverpool Nepalese Community), he does lots of great work for local and Nepalese charities.
Deepak said: “It is a great honour for me to bring my native Nepal to Wirral and the feedback from customers has really touched us. To have such praise from local people is really special and we take great pride in giving each and every one of them a special experience — giving them an authentic taste of our culture and cuisine.”
Deepak originally opened Mexican Bar & Grill at the venue but due to its success and request for large celebration bookings, he has moved that restaurant to a larger Liscard Road premises near Central Park and has now opened the more intimate Mt Everest on Wallasey Road.
Deepak said: “I opened Mexican Bar & Grill in Liscard in 2021 and it has been very popular, but we soon found that people were booking large parties regularly as it’s a really fun celebration venue. That’s when I came up with the idea of moving Mexican Bar & Grill to a larger venue and opening Wirral’s first ever Nepalese restaurant here on Wallasey Road.”
He continued: “It was a great decision. Mexican Bar & Grill has been hosting some big celebrations and birthday parties and we always make a fuss so a bigger venue was logical! Meanwhile, people have been loving Mt Everest as it’s intimate with traditional Nepalese music and there are some beautiful dishes people are trying for the first time. It’s worked out great!”
Both of Deepak’s Liscard restaurants are open 7 days, both offering a discount on takeaway and deliveries, and both bring something unique to the area. At Mexican Bar & Grill you’ll find fun, colourful and filling Mexican classics such as fajitas, burritos and chimicangas alongside specials, burgers and steaks, whereas Mt Everest brings you mouth-watering Nepalese and Indian cuisine in an intimate setting.
Deepak summarised: “It is a great honour for me to bring my native Nepal to Wirral and the feedback from customers has really touched us. Mexican Bar & Grill has been doing great things in Liscard and we will continue to do so in our larger venue, but to see the Nepalese concept have such praise from local people is really special.”
Mt Everest is located at 45 Wallasey Road, serving authentic Nepalese and Indian cuisine, and is open 7 days from 4pm. Mexican Bar & Grill is now located at 233 Liscard Road, serving fun and colourful Mexican classics, and is also open 7 days. Both restaurants offer a 10% discount on deliveries and takeaways.
