If you love curries but want something a little different, try the Gurkha Chef. You still get standard bits like poppadoms but the curries are different, more aromatic and sometimes verging on Chinese for example the delicious Aloo Tama Bodi (bamboo shoots, black-eye beans and potatoes). Golbheda Achaar (in the Rotiko Parikar sundries section of the menu) is one of... More

A group of us meet in Indian Restaurants in several places - Andover, Basingstoke, Farnham, Newbury. After trying many of them - some many, many times! - we voted the Gurkha Chef the best.

I enjoyed the food at the Gurkha Chef. Food is Nepalese, not your normal Indian fare. Service was great and the food was reasonably priced. The restaurant decor is fairly bland and nothing to write home about. However, its worth the visit for the food you can get the normal Indian favourites but its great to see real Nepalese food...

It was okay, portion sizes a bit smaller than the local Indians also a little weak on spice. Well cooked food and good staff. Maybe try something different next time.

Had a takeaway yesterday for the first time, simply great, couldn't have asked for more. Every dish was flavoursome and it all came to £20 for two us with sides. Only took 25 minutes and greeted with friendly faces :-). We will be returning.

Regularly use this restaurant, either for an evening eating out or a takeaway meal & it's always fantastic. Would recommend this restaurant highly to everyone.
