Visited last night with friends and family. I have been to the Gurkha Chef before but not for some years. The menu can be a bit difficult to navigate with some somewhat vague descriptions -I took a punt on a dish described as "cubed chicken in a medium creamy sauce", which in all fairness was delicious, but I had no...

If you're getting fed up with the usual Indian fare then I would recommend you give this place a go. Yes the place is a bit small and there was a bit of a waiting time for us (Saturday night after the horses) but this is more than made up for by the Nepalese slant on dish's you are aware... More

I've been here twice now in so many months and have nothing but good things to say about the food. Not quite your normal curry, but close enough that the menu doesn't look far off that of an Indian. 5 of us had a good selection across the menu, and there wasn't any complaints. We couldn't decide if it was... More

The food is excellent, we have been here a number of times so we've tasted several curries and they are all excellent. The service is efficient and the cost is fair. In my opinion, they have the best curries in town.

Such good simple food well presented and so tasty that will return - often. Great atmosphere, busy a bit cramped but the food is outstanding, a different menu, if you are used to the usual curry, but experiment and you will not be disappointed the staff are happy to assist you.

This place is really simple and traditional Nepalese restaurant. The place is little clumsy but offers simple food which can be had everyday. The service at the restaurant is average as well. Overall, an average experience to have a meal.

I've been going to the Gurkha Chef for years and their dishes are very good. Lately some of the portion sizes have been small and when you're paying almost £10 for the dish you'd expect to get an adult portion. Other than that very good.

I have eaten here many times, the latest was last night and every single time they have been consistently good. This is not the place to go to if you want an Indian curry (Korma, Vindaloo, Madras). This is somewhere to go if you want something slightly different. They do Nepalese curry dishes which are "equivalent" - so if you... More

Never disappoints. Great food, good service. Much preferred over Indian curry for me. If large work parties are there I would give it a miss as the space is small and you won't be able to hear yourself over the festivities.
