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.

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!

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

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
