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.

We went to Gurkha Spice for a joint birthday meal and the whole evening was excellent. The food was delicious, the surroundings clean and the staff very pleasant. We will definitely be going back again, highly recommended.

“Phenomenal Nepalese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Have just returned from Gurkha Spice after what can only be described as a phenomenal meal out. If there were 10 stars to give then this restaurant truly deserves it. Service and food among the best I have ever experienced. I will definitely go back again very soon and would advise a visit for anyone who wants to experience something different to the 'run of the mill' Indian restaurants that Banbury has to offer. It was very quiet when we went and it it would be a dreadful shame if this were to become a victim of the economic downturn. The prices were reasonable and even the House Wine was above average. All I can say is 'Go and see for yourself'

“Great Food and Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Several of us went to Gurkha Spice to celebrate a Birthday! Restaurant was nice and busy which creates a good vibe, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
There was a great range of food to choose from and it was delicious.Most people had a starter and a mains on our table and it was enjpyed by all.
When the staff found out we had a birthday the Manager (I Think ) brought over a a envelope with a nice message from the team and a little pressie inside (not sure what it was) This was a very nice touch.
Only Negative was it took a little while for anyone to take our order.
Look forward to going back.
