We were exploring Spalding last Saturday as we will be moving to the area during the summer. Picked up a local free newspaper that had a review of the restaurant and stumbled upon it during our look round the town.

We were pleasantly surprised at just how good the restaurant was. We had experienced Nepalese food in Maidstone during a trip there and were impressed with the flavours and variety and it is brilliant to think this gem of a restaurant is so close to where we will be living.

The prices are reasonable - hubby had beer and i had a soft drink, popadoms and 2 courses with naan and it came to £42 so at £21 per person, I consider that good value.

My husband had the Momos as a starter while I had the Stuffed Tandoori mushrooms (I am veggie) both were very tasty. Husband then had the goat curry which he said was exceptional. I had the vegetable biryani which again was full of flavour.

Service was good and it was nice to see the restaurant full of people who were all enjoying the food as much as us.

Could be our new favourite restaurant! Hope to see you again soon.

We visited Gurkha Oven for the first time last weekend as we were in the area. We were so glad we did! It is certainly worth any drive. I honestly think it was the best Indian food I have has as of yet!

Welcomed into roomy restaurant with parking directly outside. Good range of starters, those we had being nicely presented and tasty. Menu extensive and mid to high priced in relation to the area. Drinks, as with all restaurants, slightly higher than one should pay, but with a good choice. The main meals served to our party were extremely good, in fact my curry was exceptional and the best I've had in some time, Generous portions were the order of the day and the rice was fragrant, fresh and a delight in itself. Nan's were wonderful and presented well. Side orders were good and not too excessively spiced. All in all an extremely good meal which was enjoyed, presented and attended to by very pleasant staff.

Family meal to celebrate my son's 15th Birthday and also my brother in laws 65th. There were 12 of us. For most of us it was our first visit. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, very light and spacious. Nice wide tables so there's plenty of room to put the various dishes that so often come with Indian food. The service was excellent and as a few of the party hadn't really tried Indian food, they offered advice on what to order. They also ask how spicy/hot you want your food. All the waiters were polite, courteous and friendly.
The food was very good, tasty and plentiful. No complaints from anyone. The cost of the meal was pretty average for an Indian meal.
We were in there quite a while and we didn't feel pressured to leave before we were ready to which can happen in quite a few restaurants. The whole experience was great and will definitely be going back and will reccommend to others.
