Could be better .... Room for improvement

On a winter night. I had no hesitation to dine @ Gurkha. The chilli chicken, their signature is always consistent. Nicely fried, with herbs n the chilli to make it taste so .... Good. Disappointment was also their signature dish, goat curry which wasn't as good as the last time I had a meal here... read more

Interesting decor you can sit on cushions on floor or sit at tables and chairs. The service is good and value for money for the food.

This place is well fitted out, easy to get a table and service is friendly. Food is somewhat bland, nothing we had stood out (veg curry, grilled tofu, curry puffs). Inexpensive wine.l

Have been twice now and had the chicken, along with various starters. Have to say the value for money and quality of food is excellent. Additionally, the staff are all very accomidation. It is a BYO so bringing a bottle of wine or a few for the table is very helpful to keep the cost down. Highly reccomend.

We used a voucher for her (Cudo/Groupon typer thing) and we had the banquet. We opted for the Vegetarian banquet option, as I dont eat meat, much to my partners initial disappointment, but I have to say, we both very much enjoyed it.! The pumpkin curry was a favorite for both of us, all the food that came out tasted... More

Food was just OK, would question its authenticity when compared to other Nepalanese restaraunts. Upon entering the restaraunt we didn't get that Indian Curry smell sensation nor did we taste it in the food. Not a patch on "Chiraag Nepalanese Restaraunt " in Croydon. Worth the drive to Croydon for the experience. Had to try " Gurkha" but unfortunately it... More

The quintessential factors that a diner looks for in a restaurant are good food, good company, and to a certain extent, good service. I have never in my life come across a restaurant whose management gave such horrible service that it left a rotten taste in our mouths before we even had our food. This experience spoilt the mood of... More

We did our first restaurant walk-out of our lives at this appalling joint. We had a gift voucher for banquets worth $220. We were served by the manager (third person from the right in their cover facebook photo). He said we could choose any banquet on the last page of the menu using the voucher. We ordered four banquets and... More

Visited this restaurant with my partner tonight. An oasis in the business of Chapel St. We enjoyed potato filled roti and mixed momos for entree and chicken Marsala for main course. The service was excellent and the price reasonable. All food was delicious and authentic. Highly recommended.

This was our second visit to this particular place. Both times we bought vouchers on Our Deal for $29. We really liked their food first time and after that we did not hesitate to buy another voucher four months later. First time we chose to sit on the floor. It was interesting experience - not very comfortable though. I had... More
