The family run Royal Gurkha Restaurant & Bar is situated in leafy Broad Street Common, between the Surrey county town of Guildford and the tiny station village of Worplesdon. Well worth heading out of town for, Royal Gurkha is a must for those unfamiliar with Nepalese cuisine, providing the ideal introduction to the flavors of this exciting mountain country. As a pub restaurant, Royal Gurkha is comfortable, relaxed and friendly, welcoming children throughout the day and in to the evening and making for an ideal family dining venue. In the summer, a beer garden opens, providing beautiful country views while in the winter, this is a cosy spot where good food can be enjoyed in warm surroundings. Extremely affordable, the Royal Gurkha menu focuses on the authentic dishes of Nepal, the delicate flavors of Nepalese home cookery perfected by the dedicated chefs behind the scenes. Traditional Indian cuisine is also available, meaning that there is plenty of choice for even the fussiest of diners or those preferring to stick to what they know. Mon to Wed Special Night 3 Course Meal only £9.95 ( Choose Any Starter, Any Main Course & Any Rice Or Naan).

Generous portions, delicious food.

It was a lovely restaurant/ pub venue with very friendly staff. The food came in very generous portions and tasted delicious. My girlfriend had the Korma and thoroughly enjoyed it while I had a cashew nut, lamb thingy (Makmah?) which was lovely, but perhaps slightly too rich towards the end. Even... read more

Love this place. Best curry I have ever had. Can actually taste the individual ingredients in each dish. Not overly loaded with ghee either so feel quite clean after the meal. Value is astonishing £5(something) for chicken bhuna, got at least 2 chicken breasts in it. Staff really helpful and welcoming. Okay the decor isn't exactly The Ritz, but it's... More

We usually order take out from here, but we visited it in person for the first time the other week. This place is a little gem, hidden in half a pub in the outskirts of Guildford, but well worth a visit as all the food is just great. Everyone in our party commented on how the food is lighter, fresher... More

The food here is amazing and the takeaway service also great. Have never had to wait longer than 45 minutes or so. One of the best Indian/Nepalese places I've ever visited.

I desperately fancied a curry, but due to an operation I've been unable to drive, and on checking out the restaurants in our locality that deliver (via a specialist website) we chose this establishment - because it was fairly high up in the ratings. We ordered via the internet at 6.45 pm (a weekday). Delivery was promised at 8.15 pm.... More
