“You have to eat here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Can't say enough good things about the restaurant. The place is nicely decorated, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is amazing. Have tried several different dishes on the menu and not had anything I didn't like. All the dishes are extremely well cooked and full of flavour.

“Amazing world class food at a very reasonable cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We used TripAdvisor to select a good Indian Restauant in Banbury. We were blown away with the delights of this hidden gem. This is by no means the average Indian food. What you have here is authentic Napolise cuisine and it is truly delicious. Try the Honeymoon Chicken, With breast of chicken, stuffed lightly with minced lamb and spinach. Served with vegetables and noodles. Garnished with cheese for £9.95 and you will not be disappointed. The restauant has only been open for 5 months and is very clean with a hygine standard of 5. Thank you for excellent service too. We will definately be back on our way back to Napton Marina.

“A hidden gem of Banbury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

As soon as you walk in you will notice a very tidy, clean and mouth-watering smell of all the delicacy flavours Gurkha Spice has to offer. Super friendly staff, extremely quick and good service for a busy restaurant in town. It is definitely a hidden gem of Banbury. The food is just precise in every way, everything cooked to perfection and with a variety of dishes on the menu I felt very satisfied with this restaurant. Highly recommended, would come back again.

“GORGEOUS FOOD... EXCELLENT SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I recently ate at Gurkha Spice as part of a birthday group. The table was decorated and we even had a rendition of happy birthday from the music system. Never mind that though on to the real reason for this review. The food here is amazing.... good and spicy and aromatic and plenty of it! We like to think that we have tried every curry house in town and now favour this one in regards to variety/quality of the dishes. The staff are attentive and friendly without being over bearing and intrusive! Brilliant job guys keep it up!!!
