The little street in a remote area offers unexpected quality and most of all, personnel and personal commitment. Price level is excellent. Pleasant surprise. Everything was fresh and/or home made. Good usage of fresh herbs. Not afraid serving spicy, but with proper warning. Place was packed. Discovered.. Then, reservation is recommended. But indeed, best Indian/Nepalese so far. Great atmosphere. Forget... More

Gurkha is the best Indian-Nepal restaurant in Eastern Europe. It is perfect to have nice time and nice food with your friends and family. I strongly recommend it. The restaurant has also a garden which is very nice.

I went with a group and we sat outside. This restaurant is located on a quiet street in a pleasant neighborhood. We ordered a variety of dishes and ate family style. Everything we ordered was amazing, perfectly seasoned and spiced. The food came at a good pace - we had time to finish our starters before the mains were delivered.... More

If you are a true fan of Indian food, you have to visit and try this restaurant. Since I am a true lover of this type of food, my visits there are more than regular. Great, tasty food, good service; the restaurant is nice, friendly and clean. In my top 3 for sure.

We went with some friends for a casual dinner and stayed in the quiet garden. As I am a big fan of chicken tikka-masala, went for that one. My friends also picked mostly Indian dishes and less Nepali. All were quite happy with the food & service. We ordered also Korma and all starters and trimmings, including naan. The waiter... More

I have given this restaurant 4* not because it is the best example of Nepalese cuisine you will find in the world but the food I had was fresh, tasty, excellent value (compared to UK prices) and there was plenty of it. The fresh cooked naan was lovely. I was there on a mid week evening and it was packed... More

A large variation of not so/spicy food soups, meals appetizers and desserts with indian/nepali origin, although far away from the typical indian curry dishes that you can find anywhere. I love almost all the soups - most of the dishes ( w/o the really spicy ones that I just cant handle wihthout 5 galoons of water and a box of... More
