Currently closed - not clear whether it's going to re-open

We've been coming to the Khukuri for years - since the late 90's - but it is currently closed - the interior has been gutted and the workmen are in. A notice in the window says that the owner has requested the removal of the licence to sell alcohol. So it would seem that the Khukuri as we knew... read more

Went with some friends and the place was a bit off the beaten track. Food was absolutely delicious and served by beautiful attentive staff and the wonderful manager who performed magic tricks for us. Thoroughly recommended , thanks guys, sorry if we were a bit loud. Best curry experience in Reading.

We've been frequenting this restaurant for years as it's very convenient and local for us. We now go there as a family as our daughter loves it! The food is very good and variety of dishes great. The restaurant is always quiet at the times we go there (I think they probably do quite a large takeaway trade), and as... More

Lovely momos and nepalese curries, really tasty, nicely spiced and perfect hotness. I highly recommend the food. Experience was underwhelming: things missing from thet menu, cold popodums, strange half-filled condiments, loud music, owner doing accounts in the corner, sloppy service, radio turned on to get rid of us...average over all.

Having purchased a Groupon voucher for 4, I visited the restaurant on a Tuesday night. Although the exterior and interior decoration may not be everyone's cup of tea, don't let your eyes fool you! We had an extremely sweet and accommodating waitress, who went out of her way to tailor for our various tastes and special orders. Her recommendation for... More

When purchasing such a voucher 2 things to note: 1) The only desert on offer is ice-cream, the restaurant does not have a desert menu. You are only given tea or coffee instead which is not really a desert and you think is... More

We ordered a takeaway from Khukuri and was told the order would be 30mins plus 'delivery time', however long that is (we assumed 15 minutes at most). The call redirected to a mobile which was strange, and there was so much noise in the background it took ages for the guy to actually receive the order. After waiting over an... More
