I had a saag aloo madras which is always off menu but most places will do for you...which was lovely, not as spicy as some madras but nice nonetheless. Other half had a balti which he said lacked flavour and wasn't worthy of the 1 chilli rating on the menu. Also had a cheese naan.. cheese was sparce! We would... More

We booked for the dinner because we like ethnic food and never tried Nepalese one. We asked to the waiter to choose for us, a starter and a main. We take different dishes to taste as much as possible. Dishes are nice to see, and wonderful in taste. The service is nice too and it was a beautiful spicy night!... More

Many visits to this restaurant, food always good here. Clean restaurant, very smart staffs. Young girls are excellent, if they not sure about always call Manager and he knows in side out about food. Mo:Mo and Goat are my favourites and now Pineapple Chicken just add on to my list. Only criticism is they don't open at lunch time and... More

My wife and I visited the Gurkha Oven for a 'date night'. Food is very tasty we both had dishes from the Nepalese menu and enjoyed everything. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Restaurant is spacious and open but still has a pleasant ambiance. We will going back to try further dishes from the menu.

I and several colleagues work on the shuttle trains of an evening between Spalding and Peterborough and often make a point of having our dinner from Gurkha Oven as a takeaway. They are always obliging and friendly and food is served in a timely manner. The momos and curried goat are to die for and I love the dips provided... More

Matt, my cousin's son, recommended this during a family visit to Spalding. My good friend Raj came along for the ride and the three of us went to the Gurkha Oven. I told the manager on the way in that I had in fact been to Nepal. He asked when I said 1983 and he replied that he had not... More

Nepalese cuisine is the current trend amongst "Indian" restaurants with diners looking for alternative dishes to the typical familiar curry options, so whilst it's easy to go for something tried and tested I decided to order completely off the Gurkha Special menus. If you're a curry fan then I'd wholeheartedly recommend you do the same as I don't think you'd... More
