Ate here with friends and food was not very good. Service was good though. We felt that the food was quite bland and would not recommend or return to this restaurant.

We have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions over the last 12 months and have never been disappointed with the friendly reception, the beautifully presented and delicious food and the incredibly reasonable price. If you enjoy curry washed down with a refreshing pint of lager...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

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.
