It took 1 hour and 10 minutes for our starter to arrive! We were exhausted from a full day of walking in the Beacins but almost fell asleep waiting for our order.

I visited this quaint restaurant today to celebrate a friends birthday. Wow! We were both really impressed. The restaurant has seating for around 30 people and I can imagine it would feel much less comfortable when full than what we experienced today. There were only a handful of guests. The room is dark but quite inviting with lovely authentic pictures... More

Having not sampled Nepalese food before and I am glad that the opportunity arose to tick the box. On the surface it looks like an unidentifiable menu but read the descriptions and you can mostly pick out variants from standard Indian and Chinese food. The Gurkha beer was clean and crisp but at £4.50 a pint was over priced but... More

I had so little in the way of expectations for a curry deep in the wilds of Brecon. How wrong could I have been. The Momos were exceptional and I wish I could have more right now. The staff were lovely, the decor was actually pretty true to eating out in Nepal (gotta love the incense and bad paintings) and... More

I have been to Nepalese restaurants in the past which have a very similar menus to any Tandoori restaurant, but Gurkha Corner felt very different. You could have had familiar dishes but we chose pork dumplings and stuffed chicken breast and were pleasantly surprised by the flavour and textures. The service was good and the food delicious.

Lovely Meal, Very Quick and They Were Very Busy! Proper taste of Nepal. Only issue was a mess up with the bill, but not a problem!

We didn't know about this place and only discovered it by walking around the town. What a find. The staff were lovely and the food excellent. I can't wait for our next visit to Brecon just to have a feed here! Just make sure you book as it is quite small and very busy!!

After a lecture at Brecon's theatre, we chanced upon this cosy little restaurant. Warmly welcomed with a traditional nepalese menu, we had a wonderful meal and enjoyed the whole experience.

Nepalese restaurants are not very common in Britain, but this authentic restaurant reflects the presence of Gurkhas in Brecon. Food is plentiful and well prepared. Service is respectful and very good.
