Description: 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).

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.

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 the Onion Bhajis were huge, and one portion has... More

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

As always food was well cooked, delicious, and reasonably priced. The customer service was fantastic. we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at cafe Gurkha. I am sure we will be coming... More

First time we ordered takeaway was New Year's Eve and we waited 2 hours. The food was very nice and given it was NYE I cut them some slack in case they were super busy. Have tried them again for takeaway today and waited an hour and 40 mins for an asap delivery. No communication from the restaurant. When I... More

Booked this as could walk from where we were staying locally. Not necessary as we were the only ones there when we arrived. What to say ? The food is surprisingly good; we had a starter each then a mains each plus rice, a veggy dish & a naan to share. The food is certainly very tasty & is nicely... More
