Welcome to Gurkha Palace - easy to see why it's among the best!

Happy, helpful staff and management, who have long been good with our autistic son (taking an interest in his drawing ability), provide excellent service. Consistently good food, though it would be nice if they had some real ales instead of just lagers (as with most curry style restaurants).That's... read more

This has become a go-to when in Farnborough on business. While popular with the locals, they draw a healthy amount of business travellers on any weeknight. The selection is excellent with a wide array of dishes for those that like their meal mild or hot. Very prompt service makes this a keeper on my list.

I visit the Gurkha frequently on business and have done for many years now and the food and service is and always has been of the highest order. If you fancy trying sub-continental food with a Nepalese twist then this is the place to visit.

visited here for the 3rd time and sadly it's progressively got worse from first experience. Where as the food remains OK , if not a little bland , and well priced - the service and ambience seem to disappointingly get worse - the staff don't seem very interested or attentive and the decor is starting to look a bit tired...

There is a huge range of Indian restaurants in the area and quite a few Nepalese, the Gurkha Palace has distinctly above average food but at very good prices. Staff are attentive but parking can be a bit of a challenge so it's best to book early.

We visited this restaurant prior to a visit to Nepal and chose it because it is highly regarded in the area. We explained our planned visit and asked them to recommend typical Nepalese food - they said that they didn't serve it!! The ambiance is also rather strange: it is very much a 'business dinner' venue with loads of pairs... More

Have previously eaten at this restaurant a number of times but most recent experience a let down. We went for my wifes birthday (table for two). On a positive note the starters were very good - tasty, good value, nicely presented. The quality of the meat on the main dishes was also very good - lean, large pieces of meat.... More

Ghurka Palace has become a firm favourite choice to eat out for me and my friends. This is mainly due to the fact that the food is just so good, but also the service is always good and the staff are really friendly. The restaurant always has a warm, friendly, welcoming atmosphere and I have never had a bad experience.

First Nepalese food I've had, smallish curry house layout, attentive service, great starters and tasty mains. Done!
