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.

Staff brilliant, food excellent and nothing is too much trouble. We asked for extra chilli's and no problem at all. Great with a group of friends but equally perfect for couples too. Thoroughly recommended.

I went with my friends last weekend to Gurkha Village and I have to say I was rather delighted with the standard of the cuisine. I must recommend the King Prawn Curry as generally I'm not a fan of sea-food but I have to say, it was delicious! The service was also excellent and the cost was reasonable. All I... More

We've been there many times throughout the years and the food has always been fabulous - never any complaints about it. Service is the same as anywhere else - if mistakes happen, they fix them and life goes on. It's a relaxed atmosphere and relaxed service which I like - I guess some other reviewers like to be bothered by... More

horrible customer service, the people that serve are ok, but the person in the bar is terrible. Very horrible experience, never going to visit again.

We have used the Gurkha Village for take-aways for well over a year and apart from one mixed up order (which could have been down to Just Eat and not the restaurant), we have enjoyed many take away curries, both traditional and variations on a theme (Jalfrezi). When we place an order, we are usually advised of the anticipated delivery... More

What a lovely place. The staff are lovely and the food is so tasty. It's almost like you can taste every ingredient. Everything is cooked with fresh ingredients and the choice is brilliant if you like to try something different just ask the staff. Bit pricier than normal but you get what you pay for!
