“Best Nepalese in Maidstone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I haven't been for awhile but since my first visit when it first opened the Gurkha restaurant has always impressed me.
I love Indian food and this is probably the best Indian like food in Maidstone, with of course the twist that the menu is Nepalese making an interesting change from the many Indian restaurants around. The food is very tasty, fairly spicy and very good value.
For something different from an Indian I would recommend the Mooli curry or the noodles, delicious.
The service is good and the owner(?) is very friendly.
The only problem with the restaurant is it is rather small and fills up quickly. So do book if you want to eat there on a Friday or Saturday night. In the winter it can feel rather stuffy.

If it wasn't for the cramped surroundings I would give a rating of 5.

“Superb!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

The food at the Gurkha restaurant is fantasic simple as that! The flavours and spicing is top notch. Our party consisted of 10 and all our meals from our starters to our mains, side dishes etc... All arrived perfectly no one was left waiting whilst watching others eat and the restaurant was full.

Well done to all!
