This was our first visit and we could not fault the restaurant on any aspect. The food was tasty, the portions extremely generous yet reasonably priced, the service quick and the staff friendly, courteous and helpful. We can only presume that whoever wrote the review headed 'Worst food, don't go!' on 1 November 2012 was doing a deliberate and spurious hatchet job to discredit the restaurant. They certainly do not deserve that and we would encourage anyone to give this restaurant a try. We believe that, like ourselves, they would soon be back for more!

Absolutely burst with heavy cold and wanted something spicy to eat in Perth - the Gurkha looked ideal on the internet so gave it a try. I enjoy Nepalese style having worked there - albeit a long time ago but still like the country.

Only customer on a Tuesday evening at 8:30pm but other nearby restaurant were dead also. Had a very different meal to the usual Indian restaurant menu (Nepal/India is a bit like Scotland in UK) and waitress spent a lot of time explaining food. Portions, as others have said, are generous and were brilliantly explained.

Other reviews mention the decor - didn't seem too bad for me.

Suggest that it well worth a try - especially if you like spicy food that is not always Chicken Tikka Massala.

Will certainly go back

Wonderful food x huge portions but full of quality, flavour and fresh ingredients x loved it!!!! Only suggestion would be to do a bit of refurbishment would love to have a comfy chair to chill with coffee after meal. But cannot fault the food or service

We were staying in Perth and wanted a good curry so asked some locals - they recommended the Gurkah,so we thought we'd try something new and we were very pleasantly surprised.
The decor is nothing special,but the food and service were.The staff were very helpful and chatty,nothing was a problem.
The food was great,a bit like an Indian but with different flavours.There's lots of choice and the portions were HUGE - I'm a pig,but with a starter it had me beat! The Gurkha beer was very nice too.The bill was very reasonable,amazing value for the quantities.
So if you're in Perth and want a slightly different curry,give it a try,I'm sure you'll love it.
