We were in Blandford Forum for 1 night, and wanted a good meal with wine. Recently we had an excellent Indian curry in Gloucestershire , and were intrigued to find a Nepalese restaurant in Blandford with good reviews. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is...small with 4 tables downstairs and there appears to have more space on the 1st floor. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The menu offers a range of curries some of which sound familiar, others less so but all sound interesting. The food served in large portions was delicious, in particular I can recommend the choilla, a mixture of barbecued chicken with tomatoes peppers and onions with garlic ginger chillies and mustard oil. Be warned it is a large portion served sizzling. Wine was good and affordable. This restaurant deserves to thrive, we will return if we get the opportunity to visit Blandford Forum again.More

Visited whilst on a business trip. Friendly staff, nice food, not amazing but still really good. Tried the Thali offering which had a good variety. Would recommend and worth a visit.

Decided to have a takeaway during lockdown. Namaste Gurkha has always produced top class service and food as a sit down restuarant, so this was a new experience for us from our local curry-house. Was certainly not disappointed. Prompt answer of the phone, polite with...excellent confirmation of order. Timeframe for delivery was given40-45 mins on a busy Friday night. Delivered on time (delivery with a smile). food still hot and packaged well. The food was judt perfect. Highly recommended is the Gurkha Exotikka, which was divine (perfect for those who llike a tasty, mild curry). Found our go-to take away now. will be ordering again very soon and look forward to visiting you all again once we are able to accept your kind hospitality again.More

Despite the self-isolation regulations, this excellent curry-house is still allowed to remain open with a full menu of 90 dishes. You can either: - pick up (take-away); - home delivery to a radius of 4 miles, if your order costs over about £20. It is...open from 6pm till 11pm, and is only closed on Mondays. The lamb is very tender; we also loved the papadums with mango chutney or Raita with cucumber. The large prawns were delicious, and good value for money. We chose all our dishes from those marked with only 'one chilli', and even these were well spiced. The rice portions were sufficient for one or one and a half people. The new Gurkha owner has only been in charge for a month, so deserves much more custom than he has at present.More
