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.

Ordered take away from here, after waiting 50 minutes the food was poor. Most of it was cold, I ordered a prawn starter and got one prawn! Thanks for the generosity.......... My other half had chicken tikka and chicken was so dry he couldn't even chew it ! Nann which was supposed to have cheese in it was rather lacking... More

We did book but there was no one else in when we arrived, though other people did come in later. What food there was was very good but the choice was extremely limited. There were only 3 starters and about 4 or 5 main dishes, but all nicely cooked and very tasty. Would have expected there to have been many... More

To be honest its just another indian restaurant and they try to make it different saying nepalese restaurant but even the most special nepalese dish MOMOS doesnt taste like authentic... More

We've been to this restaurant a few times for lunch, dinner or for the Sunday Buffet, I must admit the food and the service in this restaurant never disappointed us. The last time we went there was for a farewell party, there were 10 of us. The waitress was very friendly and polite. We ordered different dishes and no bad... More

An evening meal for four of us. Never eater Nepalese food, so I was a bit hesitant, but from the moment we entered I felt welcome. Several different people served us, all smiling all making me feel like a guest. I ordered something that wasn't vegetarian, but the chap taking the order said he'd get the chef to make it... More

We visited the restaurant on a Monday evening, traditionally a very quiet night for most restaurants, this is the only reason the atmosphere has been marked as average. EVERYTHING else was fantastic! We were given some poppadoms to settle in with, we enjoyed the variety of pickles, slightly different from those given in an Indian restaurant. We shared a selection... More

Don't be put off by the cafe tables outside... Inside is an extremely nice restaurant with a fantastic welcome and smiles throughout from the staff. And the food was gorgeous...similar to Indian but personally I believe it is much better in terms of flavour...the Thali was EXACTLY like the picture shown on trip advisor and was excellent. Would definitely recommend... More

We first went here with a Groupon but were so impressed with the service and quality of the food that we have been back since. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone but don't ask for it hot as my friend did and was shocked. Sweat was running off him. The normal way is quite hot enoough.

My wife and I went out for a meal on a Friday. I expected the restaurant to be busy and so it was. However, the service did not disappoint and the staff were all very friendly. We were both craving an authentic and well cooked curry and that was what we had, with the lamb chilli as my favourite! The... More
