We were visiting Crieff for a few days on holiday, we were delighted to have found The Gurkhas. We had starters and mains with some sides. It was all so flavoursome, we really enjoyed our meal in the relaxed environment.

We were staying locally for the week and saw this restaurant while driving through crieff. Read the reviews on trip advisor and decided to go one evening. It didn't disappoint. The starters could be taken for a main course. So much chicken! We both had a dish from the specials (chefs and Gurkhas ) and they were extremely tasty with... More

Tried it for the first time tonight and was not disappointed! Best curry I have had. The chicken Momos are divine and worth the wait. Everything is freshly prepared and the lamb Kathmandu has a nice spiciness and melt in your mouth meat. Will definitely go back!

We went in to this restaurant based on previous good reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing, and the lady who served us was so friendly and welcoming. And compared to some other Indian restaurants the prices were very reasonable aswell. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

I first ate tandoori in London in the 1970s but find myself usually going for a Madras or Vindaloo curry or similar, with occasional forays back to tandoori. I did that at the Gurkhas 14/1/17 and enjoyed a chicken meal cooked to perfection, with superb accompaniments. Wine list is very accessibly priced with good choice. Staff pleasant and kept calm...

We went here instead of Crieff Hydro Brasserie which seemed a little overpriced (Christmas!). What a find! Fantastic Nepalese starter (chicken choyla), and great mains, pakora and peshwari naan. Lovely staff. Will definitely be back!
