The first and still the only Nepalese restaurant in Swindon, it would be all too easy for the team at Gurkha Village to rest easy. However this fantastically friendly restaurant works tirelessly to maintain the reputation that it has quickly gained here in the town where it sits pretty as a real local favourite. Situated in the town���s Gorse Hill neighbourhood, Gurkha Village is worth the wander from the centre, providing a perfect combination of warm, relaxing atmosphere and deliciously exotic food. Designed with simplicity and comfort in mind, the dining room is fairly frill free, only touches of attractive art and greenery giving hints of the restaurant���s Himalayan heritage. Freshly cooked food is traditional and tempting, the menu offering both Indian style classics such as biryanis and tandoori dishes as well as intriguing Nepalese specials made to authentic home style recipes. A real selling point is Gurkha Village���s dedicated children���s menu which includes English and Indian options - ideal for family dining.

Stopped at the premier inn nearby and went looking for a curry house for a night out. Not much choice in the local area but glad we found this place as the food was excellent and the service brilliant. One tip, if you're over 6 foot tall, duck when you go to the loos as the one doorframe is quite... More

Came here for a birthday meal and had the macha salmon curry which was amazing, not too spicy. Service was great too! Lovely rice and good portion size.

We've been to this restaurant 5 or 6 times now over the years. We recently went again on Saturday, Although it's changed hands it still provides a fab service with great food to match. We will definately be coming back

We have eaten in the restaurant a couple of times and also had takeaway a couple of times. On all occasions the food was fantastic but the service in house and delivery service is poor. Such a shame as the food is fresh, light and different. We've fallen into the delivery service trap again today, and again been let down.... More
