Description: You will be delighted by the wonderful range of healthy foods on our extensive menu at the Gurkha Spice Restaurant in Banbury, Oxfordshire. We serve many curry, balti, biriyani and tandoori favourites but our menu also offers typical Nepalese specialities with their distinctive flavours and spices. Our dishes are healthier than most other Asian offerings, relying less on the extensive use of fats and more on chunky vegetables, lean meats, pickled dishes and salads.

I've ordered from here twice and would do it again. The spices are delicious and fresh, the fish is really well cooked and delicate, and the lamb is tender. The lemon rice is out of this world, I can't get enough of this place!

We have now been to the Gurkha Spice 5 times! The food is delicious and just a little bit different to other restaurants. There are traditional Indian dishes, but also some special Gurkha recipes. We have tried Chicken Jaljala, Staff Curry, and Rum Rum Chicken. We loved them all and recommend that you visit soon. Suraj and all of the team there will welcome you. Tell Suraj that Linda & Colin sent you!
p.s. You can also drink real Old Hooky, or try a Gurkah beer!

I would like to say that the food is absolutely amazing. The curry Chicken Jaljala and Himlayan lamb is the best to eat. The staffs are friendly and the food were served on time. Onion bhaji which was not on the menu was absolutely wonderful. I will be definitely giving another visit in near future.

As opposed to the endless round of pubs that are trying to get custom by advertising Thai food, this is a restaurant committed to the cause. A real oriental feel and excellent service. Cuisine was more than just the usual "Pad Thai" with some other Asian flavours thrown in. Good value, relaxed atmosphere and well worth a visit

Dear valued Customer,
Thank you for taking time to write a lovely review. I hope you had nice time and had nice meal from Gurkha Spice. We are Nepalese Restaurant and there seems to be no similarity to Thai food. We use Himalayan Spices in our dishes, which gives a elegant taste and fragrance. If you require any different taste I would personally love to help you to meet your expectation . Our Chefs are always ready to help you to meet your expectation.
Once again, Thank you so much for visiting us. We are looking forward to see you again and again.
