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.

We rang late, but they were able to accommodate us. The staff were lovely and welcoming, without being intrusive. The menu was extensive and a great mix of Indian and traditional Nepalese cuisine. Had never had Nepalese food before, but this was delicious and I will definitely be having it again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Although we are local we had never been to this restaurant before yesterday but will certainly return. The food was excellent and well presented. The waiters were friendly and attentive. As others have said, ignore the location as this restaurant is well worth a visit.

We only found this restaurant on the web and had we passed it by first we would probably not have gone in - it's in a small local shopping area, but the taxi had already gone! We had booked earlier in the afternoon, and we were glad that we had because by the time we got our starters all the... More
