We visited the Gurkha chef last night , luckily we had booked a table as it was already busy at 7pm full by 8 pm , a good sign so suggest booking if it's a Saturday night . Service was good , polite and the Nepalese food was great . A little different from standard Indian fare and made a... More

Great service and food was served quickly and all at the sametime.... Would 100% go back.... The only thing I would change is the seating space it is a bit cramped when full - just need that extra couple of inches

I've been dining at the Gurkha for many occasions both business and pleasure for some years. The staff have always been courteous even friendly disputes being very busy and rushing around to keep us all happy. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys delicious spicy food that overpowers your taste buds.

The Gurkha Chef is a VERY good food destination in Newbury – It is not a typical curry house, it has lots of quirky Nepalese food choices that are very very nice. We ordered various Chicken, Lamb and Fish curries and by far our favourite was the Fish dish, which was our gamble dish but it paid off handsomely. The... More

Nice change from your usual Indian menu. Very pleasant staff. Restaurant nice and clean. Certainly refurbed since photos on here were taken. Coconut rice was delish as was the chefs staff lamb curry. All excellent. Thanks.

We eat at the Gurkha chef several times a month. Nepalese food served here is fabulous most of the time. We often have takeaway. New restaurant is lovely but service remains a poor. They do try but don't succeed. Possibly due to English as a second language but it makes for a poor service experience. However, forgive this and savour... More

I visited this place with friends as part of a Sunday buffet. The atmosphere was ok, but the food was not to my taste (bit too spicy and bland). Its located at the top end of town, so convenient. Personally I would not go again, but its not a terrible place, just not to my liking.

I have eaten here on a number of occasions, it makes a nice change to eat Nepalese curries and not the usual curries you expect at Indian restaurants. Overall the food is a good standard but if I was to criticise it would be portion size, they are not overly large so I have left here feeling a bit hungry... More
