We fancied something different & this is. Nepalese food & what felt like a traditional warm welcome, proved as our party expanded to 6 & they were happy to help. The food was good & the Pinot was fine. I think they might struggle with quick service when over half full as it appeared only one waitress, but the service... More

Impeccable service by a lovely lady and really mouth-watering food - tender and bursting with flavour. We asked for recommendations when choosing and the four of us were delighted with the meal we were served comprising a range of varied dishes. We left full but not feeling overfed. I am already looking forward to a return visit. I really recommend... More

Another fabulous meal at the Gurkha. Such a treat to have such well prepared and cooked Nepalese food. The flavours are delicious. We had garlic naan, dhal, chicken dishes, poppadums, rice and potato dish. Can't recommend enough for freshly cooked food-if you enjoy tasty food you really should try eating here!

I went here last July, only now writing a review because I feel the poorly rated comments about length of waiting time unjustified. The reason it takes a little longer than most curry houses is because it is cooked from scratch. We had a excellent meal, fantastic flavours. My main criticism is they need to get a better fan extraction... More

Oh dear! 1 waitress, 1 chef come waiter to about 24 people in the restaurant. 12 of us in one group. We had preordered our meals but still had to wait ages to get anything and then only got about half what we ordered turned up. Most of what we had was quite nice but they're not up to the... More

Despite the other very positive reviews on this page, our experience last night was one of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had, which is what compelled me to write this review. I have eaten at restaurants all over the world in six continents, and the standard of all of these was higher than what we all experienced from... More

Lovey Gurkha curry house in Tunbridge wells. Probably the best in the Town. Great food to eat in or take away. Gurkha beer is delicious. Under visited due to location but a must for curry lovers.

This is the third time I have been here, and the food was excellent as always. It appears to be a quiet place, not sure if it's due to location, but has been going for years and is definitely worth a visit.

We have come here a few times now and each time is always better than the last. I have come as part of a large group, with a few family members and just as a couple and each time we have been so impressed. The food is great, very authentic and delicious and the staff are so helpful and friendly.... More

Menu seems to consist of standard Indian dishes, but with different names. Food was good when we got it - but we booked for 7.30pm and didn't get any food until 9.00pm. The place wasn't full either. This was on a Saturday evening. Only one server - who was very sweet, and, from the speed at which the food was... More
