“Excellent food, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Clearly converted from a pub, the Gurkha Village Nepalese Restaurant is an excellent place to eat on the outskirts of Oxford as parking is easy, and the prices far more reasonable than many more touristy restaurants in the city centre. We had the set menu which offered starters, a main, a side and rice or Naan for less than £14 a head - excellent value. The décor is smart, the service quick and comes with a smile. Highly recommended.

“Gorgeous food !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

5 of us had a Girly get together last Thursday evening, we had the set menu which I believe was £13.99, for this you had a starter, main course, side dish and rice or naan, the food was delicious and plentiful we couldn't manage to eat it all. The staff were attentive and polite, I would thoroughly recommend it and can't wait to go back !

“Good food, but service flaky and 1.5 hour wait...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

This pub has been converted to a Nepalese takeaway and eatery, and while the food is good, they are a bit understaffed which makes for long waits and short tempers. I also think it's a bit atmosphere free and noisy, so best as a takeaway rather than eat in. But while the food is tasty (dumplings are very good) the kitchen does seem to be struggling to turn it around in a reasonable time and get it to you hot; 1.5 hour wait for food Saturday, and then luke warm on arrival... not impressive. I hope these are teething troubles, as it's good to have another takeaway in Kidlington and the menu is different and fun.
