Decor a bit shabby and still has bits of the former Chinese restaurant displays but is about to undergo a make over apparently. Very quiet when we were in at about 8pm on a Saturday night. Lovely warm staff - really cheerful and polite. Good choices on the menu for vegetarians and priced fairly. The food is more subtle than... More

This was a Chinese restuarant originally, we ate in there every Saturday lunchtime. We thought we would try it again as we had not eaten Gurkha food before. The atmosphere was very nice and the staff went out of their way to make us welcome. The food was not to our tase though.

Loved the starter, the main course was delicious just too big a portion so the waitress gave it to us to take away. The restaurant was quiet and the down side being it did lack atmosphere but we had very good service and it was very reasonably priced.

Perhaps I am being a bit enthisaistic about the place - maybe should only have given 2 not three. Décor is awful and the bathroom was terrible. Food was passable but nothing you would rush back for. That said the staff were very nice

In Perth for a night and it was the right kind of weather for some spicy food. Indian, why not Nepalese, or Gurkha to be more precise. In we went and swelled the diners by 2. Always a concern when you're you're the only dine in patrons. Well, we soon found out why. The entrees were acceptable, seek kebab and... More

My wife and I have been here several times and always find the food and service excellent and the value exceptional. The food is absolutely delicious, and if you can't make up your mind the Thalis make choosing easy. The Nepalese food is more subtle than the average Indian, but they do a full range of Indian for those that... More

Had a lovely meal in "The Gurka". First visit to a Nepalese restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent, portions where very big. Was eating by myself and 3 plates was too much - should have resisted the starter. Will definitely be back with the family another time.

Fantastic food, great value and super freindly. A huge menu with so many dishes to choose from, spoilt for choice. Food was exceptional and the owners and staff were very freindly. Great sized portions (we took some away with us), price was incredible value for money. It was a tuesday night and very quiet but i cannot believe that it... More

Was a little put off venturing into this place as we were the only customers. The interior is nothing to rave about and is slightly dull and uninspiring. Oh..... but the food makes up for all of that completely and in such large portions we dined on what we couldn't eat for lunch next day. Mention that you are in... More
