Great food

Was recommended this place by the in-laws that recently visited. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the curries are great. Biggest poppadoms I have ever had.

We took advantage of Tablepouncer and tried this restaurant with our daughter. Absolutely delicious food! The best Indian/Nepalese food I have ever had! And I am not a huge fan of Indian food normally but it really was delicious. The lady who served us was very polite and friendly. We all look forward to going again!

We were planning to go to Koh Thai but it was shut due to the broken window. Disappointed, we searched for somewhere nice on a rainy cold night. Gurkha gave us a friendly welcome and we had the pleasure of discovering Nepalese food. The Momo were really delicious and if we lived in Bournemouth we would go back regularly. Good... More

We live 10 mins walk away and have never noticed Gurkha 2 until a friend recommended. Off we went having never eaten Nepalese food. The food was excellent and we now have this on our list of good restaurants. We will definitely be back.

Not eaten Nepalese food before, loved it. Tried a spicy dish (Piro MoMo) which came with a "its very hot" warning, and a gentle herby dish. Both were lovely and we would eat there again. Looking forward to my next business trip to Bournmouth. Try it, not to pricy, and lovely people.

On Friday evening I was in Bournemouth for a gig at the o2 academy. I searched for nearby places to eat and didn't fancy macdonalds so was pleased to see this place nearby. I emailed them the week before and booked a table. Closer to the day more people wanted to come so emailed and said there were 13 of... More

I ate here on Wednesday after checking on trip advisor, I particularly enjoy Indian food and after reading reviews thought Gurkha 2 would be good, at least. I must point out the staff were friendly, quite attentive but the young lady who served me couldn't describe the content of a Chicken Shashlik, I simply asked was it pieces of chicken,... More

We've eaten a couple of times at Ghurka2, and have now had a few take-aways too. We love Indian and Nepalese food and you absolutely can't go wrong with Ghurka2. Friendly and quite fast service, nice atmosphere, and food to die for. I highly recommend the Piro MoMo starter if you really adore spicy food - it's hot and definitely... More

We stumbled across this restaurant quite by accident as we were in Bournemouth for a family wedding and were just meandering up the road. What a find! We had a lovely meal, the staff were so helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed our evening here. Highly recommended!
