Just the place for a celebration dinner

I always go to the Gurkha Palace for my special meals, being a Coeliac I have never had a problem with the food. The staff go out of their way to make you feel special.

We went to the Gurkha Palace for a meal and we cannot fault this restaurant, it really is first class. The service is excellent, the whole place very clean and most importantly the food is amazing with portions of a good size. The prices are very reasonable in our opinion too. We are looking forward to returning for another meal... More

It was nice to find a "Gurkha" restaurant that's was service genuine Nepalese food rather than Indian. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I was visiting a friend in folkstone and we went here, we pulled up outside and thought oh god when I saw the place from the outside. The place was very busy which made me happier. The staff...

This Gurka restaurant delivers delicious fresh authentic Nepalese food. The service is prompt and very friendly and you will not leave disappointed rather you will be planning a return visit. Parking is available immediately opposite the restaurant. You would be well-advised to book your table as this is a popular restaurant.

Gurkha Palace is our go-to place for a great take-out or family meal. The traditional Nepalese dishes are all packed full of flavour and the staff are all incredibly friendly. My personal favourite is the Gurkha Lamb because I do like a tandoori dish and my boyfriend is obsessed with the Momos and its accompanying delicious dipping sauce. Another firm... More
