Tasty Nepalese food

A pleasant surprise , the restaraunt from the outside doesn't,t look appealing, however don,t letthis put you off. The service was excellent, the food really tasty, Indian but with a difference. I will be back.

The decor may be dated and the restaurant facade tired and uninviting but the food is a different thing. It is excellent, so tasty and fresh and simply good value. You could easily pay twice as much elsewhere. The staff are really friendly and kind and nothing is too much trouble. Unfortunately the restaurant has earned its excellent reputation so... More

We were visiting from out of town so checked reviews on here first. Can see why so good, staff were friendly and attentive food was excellent and reasonably priced. Don't be deceived by view from outside - much bigger inside.

Gem of a find in Loughborough. 5pm and hungry; quick search on Internet directed us to Mount Ghurka - the reviews were not wrong. The menu was extensive combining Nepalese and Indian with a lot of choice. We had Nepalese and it was superb - will definitely return when next in the area as food as good as this is... More

Turned off the M1 to find a place for dinner in sleepy Loughborough and was lucky to find Mount Gurkha! Excellent choices of chef's special Nepalese menu and traditional Indian. I went for the Nepalese -- outstanding! Very good service, and they had no hesitancy turning off that noisy heater at the door. Wake up and try Mount Burgha!

Recently visited this restaurant for the first time with friends. We all enjoyed the food which was excellent. Staff, friendly, menu varied and extensive. Couldn't fault the place apart from one little critisicm, the toilets. However the rest of the night was so good, I can forgive this.

Nice place, friendly staff and the Mount Gurkha Special Biryani is a nice dish, although the extra money for 'all the types of meat' in this dish instead of just one, is a bit much compared to how much meat there actually is in there. (something like 3 pounds more that Biryani with only 1 type of meat). Taste is... More

This is easily the best curry I have ever had. I've been back many times to try many different dishes and have not found one I didn't like yet. You can ask for them to make some cooler/hotter etc and they are happy to do this. Amazingly tasty and a lovely place to eat. Fantastic!!!
