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.

We were in Folkestone for a weekend and choose Gurkha Palace because of the good Trip Adviser reviews. It's an unprepossessing location next to a pretty raucous pub, but the staff were friendly and the place was busy on a Saturday night. The food was satisfactory, but it took a very long time to come, one hour and twenty minutes... More

My wife and I have visited the Gurkha Palace on many occasions and I have yet to find fault with the place. I find their food to be lighter than many of the other Indian/Bangladeshi/Nepalese places around as many of the others can be quite heavy and quite greasy. It's always piping hot and very tasty. It is only a... More

Booked on the back of TA reviews, and then confirmed as a good choice by our B&B hosts; and it did not disappoint. The location doesn't inspire, but there is lots of free parking. But the welcome was warm and the food a delicious fusion of Indian and Nepalese. The menu was huge, the house wine was fine. If you... More

Food was excellent, the service was great and all in all a lovely place for a meal in Golden Valley just outside Folkestone. I have been there on at least half a dozen occasions over the last year and they have never let me down. The prices are very reasonable too.

As other reviewers have said, don't get put off by the location or the simplicity of the restaurant. The food is excellent, served by friendly and attentive staff, and it's excellent value. If you want something that is tasty, spicy and a bit different from the usual Indian / Bangladeshi fare you won't be disappointed at Gurkha Palace. To those... More

Really friendly staff and great food. We were made to feel welcome and the waiters were very attentive. A real gem. We'll be coming here again if passing through Folkestone.
