Yummy takeaway

We tried this place for a takeaway after a friend recommended them. We were really pleased with the food and it was nice to try a new place. I had the Makhan Shashlik (very tasty) and my husband had the Bhatti Kukhara, which he also enjoyed. The food was flavoursome and enjoyable where we have... read more

Lovely dinner!! The food is so good here! Went with my bf and another couple who are vegans. The food here is brilliant for them! Lots of choices! The only thing that lets this place down is the slow service, I think they under estimate how busy they will be. There was only one man out the front when we... More

Little gem of a restaurant and such a lovely find. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. The special lunch is amazing value, and there is plenty of choice. The husband and wife owners are so friendly and welcoming. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. It has a warm cosy feel but seats plenty of... More

Superb lunch for 6 with huge variety of dishes. Our waiter was friendly and provided excellent service to us. All the food came out smelling totally delicious and tasting the same too. We ordered extra naan breads because they were so tasty. Much prefer this to the usual sort of curry house. The flavours here are fresher tasting and you... More

A pleasant surprise found tucked away slightly out of town, this restaurant was a real find! In a quiet, relaxed atmosphere, staff were friendly and welcoming and were happy to discuss the menu and suggest what dishes we may want to try. The food was excellent – fresh, well spiced and a welcome change from the standard curries we are... More

Whilst you're clearly in the front room of an old house, there is an intimate and friendly atmosphere. The staff were attentive and friendly, and nothing seemed too much of an issue. The food was delicious, and made a nice change from the usual! (Indian/chinese/Thai, etc) The spices were apparent, but not over-bearing, and you can chose how hot you... More

Set in a very calming atmosphere you will find incredibly friendly staff. This was complimented with some damn good food and at a price that didn't bust your wallet. Big thumbs up.

The Himalayan Gurkha is the sort of restaurant that you find yourself salivating at the thought of eating there! It's a little bit out of the ordinary run of 'Indian' restaurants, with an interesting menu.

I went for dinner here tonight (Tuesday 26 May), with two other people, and we all had a wonderful time. The staff were very polite, friendly and attentive and the restaurant was comfortable, clean and had a nice atmosphere, partly due to the lovely Nepalese music that was playing. The food was simply superb, the best Indian/Nepalese food that I... More
