Copper Chimney is an Indian restaurant based in St. Peters, Missouri.
At Everest you'll find a mix of exotic Nepalese, Korean and Indian dishes prepared with only fresh, healthy ingredients hand-selected by chef Dr. Devi States. The menu is veg friendly and chock-full of organic vegetables: This is very much a health-conscious place, which means no processed foods or butter or heavy creams. Choose from the simple pleasures of mo-mos (steamed pork dumplings from Tibet) to the complex interplays of meat, vegetables and spices that fill daal, bhat, tarkari ra saag (a complete Nepalese meal: rice, meat, vegetables, pickled mango, a lemon wedge and a slice of cucumber). Everest also offers a lunch buffet every day but Monday, and with food this healthy, there's no reason not go back through for a second helping.
Namaste. Greetings and welcome to lunch. Everest's return to the downtown area, now located in the former Union Trust Building on Olive Street just west of Seventh Street, provides patrons with a quick, filling and healthy midday meal. Open from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on weekdays, Everest does have a full menu with appetizers, soups and salads, and several vegetarian and meat entrees, but their typical diner swarms to the buffet line, which offers the opportunity for Nepalese, Indian and Korean food to tastefully share a plate. Around seven different dishes are available, with typical vegetable options such as korma and kimchi keeping warm next to chicken and noodle trays. White or Nepalese-style fried rice are offered, along with steaming hot naan and a ladle of garlicky, aromatic daal to complement your meal. Diners can also make donations to the Himalayan Family Healthcare Project, dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of the people of Nepal.
Flavor of India doesn't veer far from the standard Indian restaurant formula. But that's no complaint. The daily lunch buffet is an excellent value and offers favorites (tandoori chicken, saag paneer) and unusual dishes (goat curry on one visit). Aficionados of Indian cuisine will want to stop in for dinner, though, when Flavor of India offers a wide array of classic Indian dishes along with its stock-in-trade, the milder cuisine of north India (such as kormas rich with nuts and raisins).
Located in the former site of Miss Saigon Vietnamese restaurant, the recently opened and elegantly designed Gokul Indian Restaurant on Delmar Boulevard a block east of Skinker Boulevard features a vast menu of meat-free, kosher, vegetarian, and some vegan, Indian food. Starters include samosas stuffed with spiced potatoes and peas, deep-fried paneer pakora and mirchi bhaja, sections of deep-fried banana peppers stuffed with seasoning. Lighter fare is available, such as chhloe puri made with fragrant, slow-cooked chickpeas, and idli sambhar, four dumplings made of steamed rice and served with a vegetable-and-tomato soup. Larger dinner items include aloo began, a curried potato-and-eggplant mixture, and a vegetable korma, mixed sautéed vegetables with raisins and cashews in a creamy tomato sauce. Gokul also offers a selection of flavored rice and naan, including spinach, cheese, and garlic. On the second and fourth Mondays of each month, Gokul features a vegan buffet for lunch and dinner.
Gokul Snacks & Sweets is an all-vegetarian and vegan-friendly Indian restaurant located in Overland. It's the flagship location, with a second Gokul located in the Delmar Loop.
A nondescript building on a nondescript stretch of Page Avenue is home to an Indian restaurant whose food is anything but nondescript. The menu follows the pattern of most area Indian eateries, with a wide selection of chicken, lamb and vegetarian dishes that will appeal both to aficionados of and newcomers to one of the world's great cuisines. Goat curry is a standout, rich and gamy, while Navratan korma is a complex vegetable dish to win over the staunchest carnivore. The requisite lunch buffet is reliable, if not as large as others'.
Looking for companionship at lunch? Try these magic words: "Anybody wanna go to House of India?" Within seconds you'll be surrounded by friends and coworkers, all of them near-crazed at the thought of H of I's awesome $6.95 lunch buffet: the piles of chewy, fluffy naan! The fragrant pilau topped with vegetable korma or spicy chicken tikka masala! The veggie samosas, so crunchy-perfect; the smoky, falling-off-the-bone-tender tandoori chicken. The cups of cardamom-kissed chai, the soft bhangra music, the super-helpful (but never intrusive) service. Dinner's great, too.
Is there a less likely location for a great Indian restaurant than an eleventh-floor former tiki bar that looks out over airport runways? The awesome view isn't the only thing to recommend India Palace. The popular daily lunch buffet offers fantastic chicken tandoori and other favorites, frequently replenished. The lengthy dinner menu excels at both fiery vindaloo and noble rogan josh. Chicken, lamb and seafood dishes abound, but adventurous diners should consider trying one of several goat entrées. Numerous vegetarian dishes are also available, and all of the little things so essential to Indian cuisine - like naan and rice - are topnotch.
The downtown location of India Palace may lack its sister restaurant’s aesthetic charm, but what it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in flavor. The extensive menu is filled with classic Indian dishes such as the rich navratan korma and tangy chicken tikka masala. The lamb vindaloo is a must-try. Hunks of tender lamb are simmered in a spicy tomato sauce that is not for the faint of heart, but its potpourri of exotic spices make the dish multidimensional. The dark horse of the menu, however, is the aloo palak, a mix of skillet-fried potatoes, garlicky spinach, onions and coriander seeds. It’s such a simple dish, but its perfect execution make it magical. Monday through Saturday, India Palace puts on a respectable lunch buffet. The kitchen keeps the steam table filled with a rotation of its house specialties, giving diners a chance to sample a variety of the same dishes that it serves at night. It’s a great way for the uninitiated to sample a spectrum of items before flying blindly at dinner — or for those overwhelmed with too many excellent choices to have a taste of everything.
