Accidentally ordered takeaway from here thinking it was Kathmandu Valley. Big mistake, the dhal was so bad I couldn't eat it. Maybe this was a one-off and maybe the restaurant experience is vastly superior but I'm amazed this is considered the best place in Tonbridge.

We’ve been to this place three times now and it’s been fab each time. Pana puri was absolutely the best taste sensation ever. Spicing is fantastic, the portion sizes are generous without being over the top, everything tastes fresh and the service is friendly. Can’t...More

A great evening meal! We had two very unusual starters which were bursting with flavour and whetted the appetite perfectly. My Duck Choili was just perfect on bothe the spice and the flavour front. The Pani Puri was very different from anything I had encountered...More

Nice little restaurant just off the high street . Saw it on trip adivisor & thought it worth a visit . The flavours on the meal were fantastic & the chicken dish was full of flavour as well as offering a bit of heat .

Not one for venturing into Tonbridge too often, I was bribed over to GP for a friends birthday meal. So very glad I decided to brave a stabbing as the food was top notch. Really friendly waiter who dealt with our large group very professionally....More

Questions & Answers

Goodevening Sarah, I 'm really shocked to hear that you didn't enjoyed food and service at Gurkha Planet. We make sure that everytime food is served to highest quality possible and our service staff also ask the guest how they felt about the food after few minutes of serving. Till the date I have never got any information like the one you have written in tripadvisor. I have checked our business overview notes where we write any specific comment given by our customer and act on it. So I didnt find such incident there too. There is no date of visit so i couldnot identify exactly what was the incident as well. We treat all customers as our valued guest and try to satisfy through the food and service we offer. As a manager I would like to apologize for the incident happened to you and if you can give me your number or call us I would be more than happy to solve the issue and offer you what I can do for you. And finally I would like to say sorry for such incident which I remained unaware. Hope you will give us chance to delight you. Kind regards Krish 01732352074
