Great food, decent price!

This was my first takeaway from Gurkha Kitchen and, based on tonight's meal, certainly won't be my last! Their menu has some dishes I hadn't previously heard of, so I tried a couple of those. My order was delivered earlier than I was told, piping hot and with a free Poppadom and Spiced Onions... read more

We recently stayed in Aberdeen for a few weeks, and visited Gurkha Kitchen for take away a couple of times. The food was amazing; really tasty, beautiful flavours, great sized servings and served hot (temperature and spicy, where we asked for it). Service each time was also very friendly and prices were reasonable. We would definitely recommend this little take... More

Ordered take away for lamb curry but got chicken curry instead. Poor response on the phone. Was asked to pay the delivery charge twice. And yet the food was not received. Not a good value for money.

Working my way through some of the top rated Indian restaurants in Aberdeen and decided to try the Gurkha Kitchen this evening. A small takeaway, the menu contains a wide variety of dishes, so I decided to start with the cheese mushroom pakora (3.50), 5 deep fried mushrooms covered in a light batter and deep fried, so that the cheese...

Went with a friend after reading the recent reviews on this site. Went for the Everest chicken after recommendation by the owner. Chicken was tough and curry more to a masala/korma texture despite me telling him that I typically eat madras at Indians. Poppadoms were also soggy. Not local so don't have to worry about returning

It's a bit of a trek up George Street (one of Aberdeen's grottiest streets). Even the most energetic Sherpa would balk at tramping this far… but it's worth it as the food in the Gurkha Kitchen is invariably delicious. Since I've reverted back to being a vegetarian, I go for their range of vegetable side dishes including spinach and potato,... More

This is the third time I have ordered a takeaway and each time I have not been disappointed. I ordered the Chicken Saslik which was beautifully cooked and not dry at all, I loved all the flavours which came through especially the coriander. The mixed pakora was yummy and spicy and a plain naan bread which was great for mopping... More

When i fancy a curry i never go any where else! Never had a problem with Gurkha, very tasty meals and very good chicken (I can be fussy with chicken) If you fancy a take out curry this is the place to order from.

Ordered from Gurkha Kitchen many times now and never had a better meal, all the items on there menu are wonderful. There is never any grease on any of the dishes and they all have different tastes. The chef who makes these dishes should be commended as every time I order from them the food is amazing. The best food... More

I had a the mixed pakora which was perfectly cooked and tasted great. It was very cheap too. Only downside was there wasn't enough mint sauce. Only a tiny amount so I didn't have enough sauce for half of the pakoras.
