I have only ever ordered takeout from the Royal Gurkha but it has always been an absolute treat as their food is of the best quality, delicious and ample. A definite recommendation!

I'm always very sceptical when order from a new take out, I never expect it to be as good as my own local one. And quite often I'm right... This time around I chose the Royal Gurka, expecting once again to be disappointed. I was not, this food was delicious, everything was cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding as... More

This Gurkha place is all about the food and I am glad to say it does it well. My friend and I went for a lunch after passing the place countless times. It's one of those places where the dreary looking building does not really invite you in but I thought we would be brave. It was a Thursday, we... More

The food here was very disappointing. I am a big curry fan, and this was some of the worst food I have eaten. I really cannot understand how any have given this a good review. the food was prepared with no skill or care. Maybe the chef was on holiday, but I wont be trying it again to find out.

Been here a few times now and they are consistently excellent. I consider myself a curry connoisseur and I can't think if a better place. The food is delicious and the portions are very generous. On top of that, the value of their £10 set meal (choose anything apart from duck and prawn dishes) and you get a starter and... More

We called in for a takeaway this evening and was very pleased with the food which was delicious, good value and generous portions. Will be going back soon. It has a five star hygiene rating which is always reassuring.

The family run Royal Gurkha Restaurant & Bar is situated in leafy Broad Street Common, between the Surrey county town of Guildford and the tiny station village of Worplesdon. Well worth heading out of town for, Royal Gurkha is a must for those unfamiliar with Nepalese cuisine, providing the ideal introduction to the flavors of this exciting mountain country. As a pub restaurant, Royal Gurkha is comfortable, relaxed and friendly, welcoming children throughout the day and in to the evening and making for an ideal family dining venue. In the summer, a beer garden opens, providing beautiful country views while in the winter, this is a cosy spot where good food can be enjoyed in warm surroundings. Extremely affordable, the Royal Gurkha menu focuses on the authentic dishes of Nepal, the delicate flavors of Nepalese home cookery perfected by the dedicated chefs behind the scenes. Traditional Indian cuisine is also available, meaning that there is plenty of choice for even the fussiest of diners or those preferring to stick to what they know. Mon to Wed Special Night 3 Course Meal only £9.95 ( Choose Any Starter, Any Main Course & Any Rice Or Naan).
