The food itself was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful, able to make recommendations. The starter... More

This was my first experience of Gurkha food for many years and I was very impressed. We both had an excellent, well prepared, and very tasty meal. It was very crowded as it was a Saturday night, and it was very loud with large groups because everyone was having a fun time. I will definitely re-visit, but midweek. The service... More

Another awesome meal from the Gurka, full of flavour and not too expensive, cannot really add anymore to what I have written in my previous reviews. Will no doubt be back again sooner rather than later.
