Great take-out food

I've only ever had take-out from here but it's been consistently good. Nepalese is a great alternative to Indian and since falling in love with the food in Windsor I'm delighted we have a Nepalese restaurant in Newbury. It's fairly understated but the service is good, the menu is comprehensive... read more

I had a meal here with some friends and it was great. The staff are so polite and friendly. If you like your eastern food then please try this place, you will not be disappointed. The flavours are not your usual Indian spices but more of a cross between Indian and Chinese which makes a delightful change.

This was indeed an excellent place to eat. The place itself is not very big and in many ways it is functional inside. However, the best part about it is the food and the service. The fayre is tasty and the portions are very good. The staff were very good and the food arrived promptly after ordering. We were only... More

Very friendly service as always but food quite average and lacking any special qualities with chicken curry dishes ok but nothing special like rice and sides . Decor well overdue for a makeover making place sadly rather tatty, one saving grace is it's quite cheap

For those who find Indian dishes a little greasy, give the Ghurka Chef a try. The food is freshly cooked and delicious; the SHERPA KUKHURA is a favourite of mine, no grease, and no pulpy mass - that could have been on the simmer for days! The atmosphere is good and the restaurant is normally busy and still the staff... More

The service was slow, portions were small and the food tasted like a cheap take-away that had been re-heated. I was not impressed. I was here with a large group of 15+ people. I have heard it is better when you go as a smaller group however many other restaurants in Newbury have easily accommodated similar group sizes.

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

Took some friends for evening out. Excellent curryhouse with Nepalese slant. Good value. Meal for four with several cold beers and plenty of food came to £50 well spent. Everything had its own disctinct flavour and the vegetable side-dishes for £3.50 are excellent. Ended with a shared orange sorbet in a scooped out orange. Thanks you Ghurka Chef for friendly...
