Good food

Probably the best Indian I've had. All dishes were great, they all tasted different, packed with flavour. I'll visit again

If you're tired of the run of the mill curry houses...try this one. Great food with lots of unusual dishes and the staff are always happy to help with your choice. If it says 'hot' trust me, it is. Very reasonably priced.

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 and the food delicious. It's also very good value for... 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.
