“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

We looked forward very much to our second visit last Saturday and the restaurant was full. My gripe was the time it took for the food to be prepared....whilst warned there would be a delay over an hours wait for the main course was unacceptable. The food however was superb.
We will return soon.

“Still No.1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Since my review in November, my wife & I took two more curry connoisseurs last Friday evening.
When one recommends & revisits, one hopes it will still be as good. Well, it was! The same nice welcome, efficient serving Staff and pleasant ambience (once inside). Food & drinks quality & quantity were judged excellent by our guests. Priced very reasonably. Still highly recommended.

“Once again a fantastic meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Had another great meal here with friends that havnt visited here before and they also loved it! By far the best curry in town and I have had plenty! First class service and top notch food, the gurkha beer is nice but at 4.20 its a little pricey for a pint, but its a nice change from other beers, booking here is a must as it gets rammed especially friday and saturdays. One bowl of rice is enough for two, the gurkha currys are fantastic and the nan bread is divine! We simply love this place and wont go anywhere else as its that good!! Cant wait to return soon.

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

We have been visiting Maidstone and came across Khukuri Cross when exploring and decided to try. The food was amazing, beautifully cooked and presented - a cut above the usual with some interesting Nepalese specialities. So good in fact that we returned with friends a couple of nights later when we had another superb meal. The service was also terrific, friendly and attentive.
