Great service, when there it always feels as if you actually matter to the staff, they are all so attentive,. This of course would not matter if the food was not up to scratch . All i can say is if you have not been to the Gurkha. GO!! The food is amazing, full stop. The takeaways are always spot... More

This place is one of the nice authentic restaurants in Newbury. Their momos are amazing, as well as the lamb and chicken curries, and the vegetable dishes with aubergine and aloo. If you enjoy trying something different from chain restaurants and like Asian flavours, the food here is great quality, quite mild and the service is of high standard. That's... More

This is the third time I've been to this restaurant and taken different people each time. Yet again it was fantastic food and although it was a busy Saturday night and we were a table of 8 we had attentive service and quality food at an affordable price. It's the sort of place that you might walk past but don't... More
