The restaurant was recommended to us by a member of staff at the Holiday Inn Express when checking in. We had a take-away which was dlivered to the hotel. The food was very good and reasonably priced and delivered with half an hour of ordering - what more can you ask for. Great

The restaurant was recommended by the chef at the Holiday Inn Express. I'm glad we took his advice as we had a delicious meal, served by Pritam. The service was fast and all the staff were friendly; the food fairly priced. Pleasant surroundings. We plan to return as we regularly travel via Folkestone to the Chunnel en route to Germany.

The food is, so my companions told me, very good. However the latest allergy legislation has passed them by and not only was my 'safe' meal sent back because of undeclared garnish that would have made me ill but apparently cross contamination of cooking utensils is an issue.

This restaurant is situated in a rather nondescript looking shopping precinct, but don’t let that deter you. We found the staff to be welcoming and the service prompt. The food really was delicious, and very reasonably priced. If you’re not sure what to expect, I’d recommend that you take a look at the restaurant’s website www.gurkhapalace.co.uk. We visited the restaurant... More

We are frequent visitors here, as a couple and with friends. Never fails. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the food is great at reasonable prices. We are vegan and can report that the vegan items are delicious. Our carnivore friends are always equally pleased with their choices. The range of dishes is very good and pleases me, as... More

We went here from the Trip Advisor recommendations, and we were not disappointed . This a Nepalese restaurant with some familiar Indian meals on the menu. This is not in Folkstone town centre itself but on a small shopping precinct next to a pub, there is a car park in the middle of the precinct so easy to park which... More

My husband and I are regular visitors to this restaurant, and can honestly say that we will not eat curry anywhere else. Having just discovered that they now offer a delivery service, we decided to try it. WOW!!!! The food was as amazing as usual, delivered by one of the friendly team - piping hot and with complimentary poppadoms and... More

The menu here is so varied, I had trouble choosing! The food was absolutely amazing. I had vegetable pakora to start, a very generous portion. I thoroughly enjoyed the paneer from the clay oven and the dhal lentils. The only thing which slightly spoiled my "experience" was the loud birthday group, which of course is no reflection on the superb... More

Me and a few friends have just had what we all considered to be one of the best and most tasteful 'Indian' takeaways we have ever had. The food was genuinely delicious and we would wholeheartedly recommend it.
