Best Indian restaurant in South East London. Cheap and cheerful the best food is the freshly cooked Nepalese range. The service can be a little slow because of the thriving takeaway business but the food is worth waiting for. No one is going to go...More

I've tried a lot of different Indian take aways before and this is by far my favourite. I've ordered many take aways from here and each and every time the food is flawless. Looking forward to my next meal from gurkhas flavour!
