All seven of us agreed food was seriously good and surroundings spotless and very attractive. We all ate from the Tibetan/ Nepalese menu. Delightfully fresh and flavoursome. Normally curry dishes are quite oily, these were not in the slightest. Prices very reasonable. Lovely helpful staff.

Gurkha Tingmo Palace is an Authentic different kind of Nepalese, Tibetan, Indian and Chinese restaurant. We specialise in preparing food using minimum of oil, no artificial colourings or preservatives. Born in a nice city of Hyderabad in India our Executive Chef Ramu Bhusal originally started his chef carrier in a Hotel Rizz Plaza residence, Amritsar (1993-2003). Ramu moved from region to region learning how to master the complexity of Indian, Thai and Chinese cuisine, before moving to Orient Pavilion Restaurant in Dubai (2005-2009). After which Mr Bhusal moved to United Kingdom and started at the prestigious Jimmy Spices Buffet Restaurant in Birmingham. Then he moved to London and started to work in Everest Restaurant as a Head Chef. We have Shree Gopal Ghimire - another qualified Executive chef who started his carrier in JI JA JI Restaurant in Derby (2006-2009) then worked in Shalimar Restaurant, Matlock as a head chef till 2016. At Gurkha Tingmo Palace we take pride in our qualified award winning chefs that creatively combine and balance the flavours to conjure up exquisite dishes, a tribute perhaps to our belief in good customer service, quality produce and the importance of a comfortable environment for our guests to appreciate the wonders served by our kitchen. Our Menu is based on the highest quality produce and fresh seasonal ingredients from all corners of Nepal, Tibet, India and China. We specialise in a large variety of dishes from the sub-Continent whether they are vegetarian or non-vegetarian. And all our dishes are served by our friendly and attentive staff.
