If I could give 6 stars I would - seriously love this place. Fast, flavorful food and super nice, friendly staff. Can't recommend enough. Love the Everest Chicken, Himalayan Lamb & Sherpa Lamb. (Haven't tried anything yet I wouldn't order again!)

Great and fast service and excellent food. Really something different for your taste buds. Serving sizes are very big too.

At one point I ate from here at least twice weekly on my way home from work. There is a very wide selection of curries on offer and some lovely variations. I recommend the Himalayan Chicken and the Chicken Chat. Food is always fresh and delivery is quick.

Very nice takeaway. Good portions, tasty food which was piping hot on arrival. 5 of us ordered and all of us said we will be going back. Keep up the good work.

This was my first takeaway from Gurkha Kitchen and, based on tonight's meal, certainly won't be my last! Their menu has some dishes I hadn't previously heard of, so I tried a couple of those. My order was delivered earlier than I was told, piping hot and with a free Poppadom and Spiced Onions thrown in for good measure. The... More

We recently stayed in Aberdeen for a few weeks, and visited Gurkha Kitchen for take away a couple of times. The food was amazing; really tasty, beautiful flavours, great sized servings and served hot (temperature and spicy, where we asked for it). Service each time was also very friendly and prices were reasonable. We would definitely recommend this little take... More

Ordered take away for lamb curry but got chicken curry instead. Poor response on the phone. Was asked to pay the delivery charge twice. And yet the food was not received. Not a good value for money.

Working my way through some of the top rated Indian restaurants in Aberdeen and decided to try the Gurkha Kitchen this evening. A small takeaway, the menu contains a wide variety of dishes, so I decided to start with the cheese mushroom pakora (3.50), 5 deep fried mushrooms covered in a light batter and deep fried, so that the cheese...

Went with a friend after reading the recent reviews on this site. Went for the Everest chicken after recommendation by the owner. Chicken was tough and curry more to a masala/korma texture despite me telling him that I typically eat madras at Indians. Poppadoms were also soggy. Not local so don't have to worry about returning

It's a bit of a trek up George Street (one of Aberdeen's grottiest streets). Even the most energetic Sherpa would balk at tramping this far… but it's worth it as the food in the Gurkha Kitchen is invariably delicious. Since I've reverted back to being a vegetarian, I go for their range of vegetable side dishes including spinach and potato,... More
