Description: The first and still the only Nepalese restaurant in Swindon, it would be all too easy for the team at Gurkha Village to rest easy. However this fantastically friendly restaurant works tirelessly to maintain the reputation that it has quickly gained here in the town where it sits pretty as a real local favourite. Situated in the town���s Gorse Hill neighbourhood, Gurkha Village is worth the wander from the centre, providing a perfect combination of warm, relaxing atmosphere and deliciously exotic food. Designed with simplicity and comfort in mind, the dining room is fairly frill free, only touches of attractive art and greenery giving hints of the restaurant���s Himalayan heritage. Freshly cooked food is traditional and tempting, the menu offering both Indian style classics such as biryanis and tandoori dishes as well as intriguing Nepalese specials made to authentic home style recipes. A real selling point is Gurkha Village���s dedicated children���s menu which includes English and Indian options - ideal for family dining.

Arrived at 8pm and shown to our pre booked table. Now..... considering we are a party of 4 and we booked at least 5 days before, we were shown to the 'smallest table in the world'. Having a look around and seeing that other tables of 4 were much bigger we asked if we could move to a larger table... More

Really great food. Went on a group on voucher and was made to feel very welcome. Particularly good bhaji, probably the best I have ever had. Would highly recommend them and go back without a group on.

Myself and my partner went here with a Groupon. I am quite a fussy eater, but the food was wonderful and the service was fantastic.

The restaurant is located on a main road whicheans it is easy to find but there is little parking on the road although a car park can be found on Chapel Street, about 500 yards away. The restaurant is decorated in a bright and airy... More

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and I plan to go back again. I purchased a groupon voucher for me and my 3 friends. The large amount of good we were served was surprising. We all had something different for our snub and all the dishes tasted different. In some places you can get similar... More

It is a little place in Gorse Hill and a friend referred us because we complained there were not any good restaurants in that area (which is near our house). We arranged to go one Saturday evening and everything we had was good. They apply a regional twist to your standard curry house and everything was freshly made. Well blended... More
