Not had Nepalese food for years so couldn't miss the chance when we were staying a couple of miles away. Good choice, good portion sizes, and really tasty food. Wine list could do with refreshing though. Staff were really friendly and seemed to genuinely want you to enjoy your meal.

Rang up around 4 to find out if I could get a table for that evening but was told they only had 6pm available which worked fine. Restaurant looked clean and well presented. Pleasant greeting and very good service form staff throughout. Manager took time to explain dishes we were unsure about. On the first night I had Khasi Ko... More

This is my go-to restaurant for celebrating anything as it never disappoints. My wife and I visited it recently on a quiet mid-week evening. It didn't have a lot of atmosphere but the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. Highlights were Momo which are similar to dim sum, the Sherpa curry which is quite hot and...

We have eaten here many times and have always had the same great service, the same great food and always come away feeling stuffed! Last night we had takeaway service and the food was exactly the same as if we were eating in the restaurant! Well done team!

This was our first visit to a Nepalese restaurant, and on looking through the menu, it was easy to see the mix of Oriental and Asian influences, as well as some interesting dishes I had never heard of. Our meal was tasty and enjoyable, though not being familiar with the menu we had ended up choosing rather mild dishes and... More

Great food, service with a smile, and not over priced. We always have the Gurkha Palace in mind as our first choice to eat, friends or family we try convince them they would be converted once they have tried, some need more persuading than others - but not for all, people have different tastes. The staff here are always helpful,... More

Excellent food, friendly welcome and overall a very good experience. Discuss your needs and they will help with your choices. We had the Chefs Menu for two with one alternative as I need to avoid Ghee. This gave us good opportunity to try a variety of dishes. Very good value too. We will be returning.

Our second visit to this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. We hadn't booked but as we were early in the evening it didn't seem to be a problem. Very nice, delicately spiced and authentic food with friendly service and a good atmosphere. Couldn't really find anything to fault it. Worth a visit.
