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.
