Excellently cooked main course with just the right amount of spices, quick but not rushed service, very busy with a good atmosphere.

We visited The Gurkha Chef twice this weekend (August Bank Holiday). Genuinely can't fault it! Especially the Sunday buffet. The most beautiful food, lovely friendly service, and all for £34.50 including a bottle of prosecco! If you happen to be in the Newbury area, it's well worth a visit.

Have been to one or two Nepalese restaurants and this rates very high, The owner and staff were very attentive and friendly. I would recommend this place and to book early, as it appears to be a favourite for the locals and busy.

I placed an order for a large dinner party for last Friday and went to pick-up my order from the Restaurant as we only live around the corner.

We went in a Sunday at 6pm and were seated quickly. Being American we do not have a lot of experience with Indian curries (we have a lot more Thai restaurants than Indian ones). The servers were attentive and helpful. We had the buffet and liked everything we tried. Our waiter is from Nepal and is here for school and... More

Placed order online. After an hour the food had not arrived so we rang up and it turned out that the order had not been placed. No apology, no discount. Very poor service. Will not be using again.

This is a great little restaurant serving authentic Nepalese food, great service and reasonably priced and they do an all you can eat on a Sunday for not a lot of money.

I took my parents and my 95 year old grandmother to Gurkha Chef this evening for the first time, it definitely wont be the last! The food was incredible and so was the service. Mia Roshan was our waiter and he was helpful, friendly and attentive. We will definitely be returning soon!
