A Little bit of Nepal !

Tucked away in a side street we came across this unprepossessing little restaurant. Step inside and you find a lovely, cosy piece of Nepal, and a very warm welcome ! All the dishes we tried were absolutely delicious. My chicken absolutely melted in my mouth. Everything was cooked to perfection... read 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

We've had some lovely meals here - eating in or getting take aways. The service is great, the food is delicious and great value for money. There's a nice, friendly atmosphere and there was no pressure to rush our meal. It was a great evening.
