We were visiting Banbury and read all the restaurant reviews before choosing Gurkha spice. The variety of main courses especially the Nepalese dishes helped us decide and so glad we did. We arrived early and the place was empty but soon started to fill up. The service from start to finish was excellent as was the food. Portions were huge... More

We had a lovely quiet meal on a Saturday night in Gurhka Spice while on a one-off visit to Banbury. Everything was well-flavoured and each dish distinctive. Portions were very generous. Prices very reasonable (<£40 for two with starters, mains and soft drinks).

As a professional cook, having spent all weekend creating dishes for 3 separate events- and for more than 60 people, the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was more cooking. So I suggested going out to eat. But where? Curry seemed an obvious choice for a Sunday night, but the last couple of times we have... More

a colleague of mine has lunch here daily and is always telling us how lovely the food is and that it reminds him of home. He is right! The food is fresh, home cooked and presented beautifully, the staff are really friendly and there is a lovely warm atmosphere in the restaurant. Definitely visiting again.

Having waited for 90 mins for an order that was promised in 45 mns we were hungry & looking forward to our curry. What a disappointment. Bindi side dish really greasy. My husbands Chicken Dhansak was ok but my vegetable curry was very bland & not very spicy despite my request to m Ke it extra hot. When I rang... More

Visited Gurkha Spice again this evening for my darling Wife's Birthday. Once again , the service was excellent. The taste of our wonderful food sublime. This restaurant is probably the best kept secret in town. Please go and give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Description
You will be delighted by the wonderful range of healthy foods on our extensive menu at the Gurkha Spice Restaurant in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

We serve many curry, balti, biriyani and tandoori favourites but our menu also offers typical Nepalese specialities with their distinctive flavours and spices. Our dishes are healthier than most other Asian offerings, relying less on the extensive use of fats and more on chunky vegetables, lean meats, pickled dishes and salads.
