I have just eaten here this evening and was very impressed. Went with my friend as a midweek treat and was not disappointed. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and offered drinks and poppadums. The lager was fantastic and i put my trust in the waiter. I can highly recommend his recommendation of the Everest Lamb and the... More

We visited here on Saturday 18th March 2017 - a group of 12 adults for a 50th birthday. The restaurant was nice and food came out nice, hot and good portion sizes Pro's: Big bookings go into a separate area from the restaurant which is good if you are a noisy bunch! Restaurant seems nice Friendly and cheerful staff Good... More

Fabulous meal,all the dishes we ordered were excellent and beautifully presented. It was a lunchtime so not many other diners but those that were there seemed equally pleased.

It requires some effort to get into the Nepalese Gurkha with two flights of stairs up from the White River Centre and more stairs to access the restaurant itself. Perhaps this is intended subliminally to symbolise the topography of the home country of the cuisine. A climb in Nepal, however, would lead invariably to breathtaking views. In this case, the...

Out of the 50 or so establishments of this type I have been to in my time the Nepalese Gurkha restaurant is in the top 5. Food well presented staff attentive and food came out in... More

This was my first visit. I will definitely be coming again. On arrival we were immediately offered drinks and popadoms with chutneys. I had lamb momos and lamb biryani which were both lovely and decent sized portions. Service was excellent. Very attentive and polite, the chef came out to speak to customers and check they were happy with the food... More

Kept seeing lots of good reviews on here. Haven't had food from here for a long time as it went down hill a few years ago. We had a takeaway last night which was absolutely spot on. Really nice food delivered on time piping hot. Very impressed, really like the food.

Visited at 7.00pm on 2 Jan (Bank Holiday). Very spacious, open and relaxed first floor restaurant unlike your typical curry house. Service was friendly and efficient. Enjoyed the Nepalese "special" dishes which were all very tasty, individually spiced, most plentiful and refreshingly clean (not swamped in ghee!). We will undoubtedly return.
