The only problem we have had is on the last 2 occasions we have ordered a big delivery, for 6 or more... read more

My first visit here on a busy Saturday night, and a most enjoyable meal. The menu was great with so much to choose from with some dishes I'd never heard of before. I'd definitely recommend the momos, they were delicious! I got to try lots of the dishes our table ordered and everything tasted fresh and wasn't greasy at all.... More

We visited on a quiet Tuesday lunchtime and had what I can only describe as a great experience. This was the first time we had experienced original Nepalese food as we usually would have had an Indian or Chinese meal.

I first visited the Gurkha Palace over 10 years ago, it was the first time I'd experienced Nepalese food. I remember describing the taste as a combination of the best Indian and Chinese meals I'd had. Since then I've had the pleasure of eating in many restaurants, but always remembered that excellent first meal. Fast forward to December 2014 and... More

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

We always go to this restaurant for special occasions. It is wonderful. The staff are so helpful and happy. The service is second to none. The food is to die for. We bring visitors to the area to this restaurant and always suggest it if anyone asks where is a good place to eat. If you have the chance, go... 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.
