Description: The Gurkha Kitchen has emerged as the leading Nepalese and Indian Restaurant in Maidstone . The Menu balances flavour, texture and colour, all of which are integral touching a high note in your symphony of senses. Equal attention is lavished on preparation and presentation. If cuisine is an art, then our chef has mastered the magnificent canvas. We serve innovative cuisine from different region of Nepal and India, with genuine friendly hospitality and great efficiency.Nepalese food is as diverse as the country itself and it's ethnic group. Keeping this in mind, our chef has prepared the menu with meticulous care, so his customers can enjoy the different varieties and flavours of Nepal and India here in Maidstone. What makes food at so exquisite is the combination of elegance and simplicity of the cooking style and the sophisticated and subtle use of many spices and herbs. We also put a lot of emphasis on the quality of the ingredients used and presentation.

Went on a Tuesday eve, easy to park outside - they have concession if you put their card in your car. Welcoming, good explanation of food choices and free pompadons while you wait fro your dishes to arrive.
Good mixture of typcal Indian dishes and the Nepalese dishes, which are generally healthier, using less if any rich cooking oils. Try to Momo's as a starter.
Food tasted fresh, portions were just right - all washed down with Ghurka beer!
Prices were in line with similar restaurants, no service charge added, leaving it to your discretion.

This restaurant deserves a five star rating for its food quality and service. The only thing that lets it down is its location and outward appearance.

Once inside its unattractive exterior the decor is warm, if not clinical, and the staff are friendly. They cannot do enough for you. The table settings are lovely and you are made to feel very welcome. The management made a point of coming to the table to engage with us and we were offered drinks on the house at the end of the meal.

The food itself is fantastic. The curries are delicately spiced and the entrees beautifully presented. I fully recommend a Gurkha Beer! It is about one or two pounds per course more expensive than your average curry house but the friendliness, cleanliness, speed of service and food quality more than make up for this and you really won't mind paying it.

Whilst in the restaurant, a family, groups, and couples were present and the place itself seems to do a good trade in takeaways. This was reassuring since the premises was less than half full on a Friday night. We were not disappointed and will be returning, bringing all our friends!

The food was wonderful & the service excellent. Also, the atmosphere was quiet & relaxed. A pleasant change to the loud, noisy & frenetic atmosphere of a lot of places these days. Well worth a special trip into Maidstone for

The interior of the restaurant is very nice and the Nepalese food is very good. The service is excellent. Are all Nepalese people this friendly?
