“Great food, great experience”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This place had come highly recommended by friends so had a lot to live up to - and it did. Helpful friendly staff, interesting menu with plenty of choice, and good value for money. I hadn't had Gurkha food before - there was enough that was recognisable and plenty that was new. I loved it. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

“Best Asian restaurant in Blandford”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We have eaten here a couple of times and on both occasions the food has been excellent. A real taste of Nepal with the food not too adjusted to suit western tastes. The food can be very spicy but you can still taste the varying flavours coming through. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is cosy and compact on the ground floor, but there is also an upper floor. The prices are reasonable and comparable with other local eateries.

“A pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

It's 13.50 on a weekday and Blandford is a very pleasant place but eateries don't really enthuse you. Hunger strikes the Gurkha is the next thing you see so in you go with no real expectation as to what it will be. It is extremely welcoming, service absolutely spot on,food very well cooked and the value for money second to none. What more can be said? If you find yourself in Blandford Forum and like Indian cuisine simply go in and enjoy the food!

“Great restaurant to dine in, disappointing to take out”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We eat here regularly and love the food, service and ambiance, in fact you cannot fault a thing. We recently had a take-away and found the portions to be very disappointing, mostly sauce and little meat. Thought it was perhaps a one-off, so tried another take-away and the same again. Definitely won't get a take away again, but dine in the restaurant only. How can the same dishes be so different dependent upon eating on or taking out?

“Blandford just got interesting!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

From the outside you might think that there wasn't much going on here, but you'd be wrong. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet for lunch and looked a little "rustic". However the £9.50 lunch menu offered great value. Some set lunch menus can be very limited but here there were 6 or so options for each of the 3 courses, giving plenty of choice and an excuse to go back.

If you enjoy curries, Chinese or Thai food you will find the food refreshing and interesting. Our meals were cooked to perfection, with lots of flavour. There is an excellent choice for vegetarians. The service was ideal, attentive but not invasive.

We will be returning to Blandford, if only to go to the Namaste Gurkha.
