I have eaten here before and it was great but when I took my niece, nephew and husband here tonight we were all dissapointed by the very poor service. I booked our table for 19:00 and we were 10 minutes early. The man who greeted us didn't seem to know what was happening and just put us at a table... More

Delicious food - curry but with a unique blend of spices that sets this place apart from your standard curry menu. Newly refurbished restaurant provides more space. Take away service can be a bit unreliable - accuracy of order and speed of production being risky..

I would recommend booking as it was incredibly busy. But the staff are friendly and efficient so it certainly seemed smoothly run despite being busy. Great food freshly cooked and not greasy like some Indian style food. Really tasty, perfect size portions. I will definitely be back.

At the restaurant as I write this right now; Am here with the team (about 12 of us) and have grown tired of waiting...first for my drinks (oh you won't find lassi here since apparently they don't drink lassi in Nepal?!), then for my starters, then to order the main course...heck I think even Santa would have delivered sooner!

It's different, it's Nepalese, I really enjoyed the food, and will go back as the menus is extensive. Obviously they have a had a complete refit recently so the place is immaculate if not a bit bland inside, they need to put something on the walls not just beige paint. Portions are OK but not generous e'g' the naan bread... More

Phoned in a takeaway and was told to collect at 7:15pm. I arrived at 7:10pm the restaurant was very busy. It was very apparent that my order had not been prepared. I was told a few minutes 7:35pm the order arrived. It tasted nice but made us ill, two family members having bad diarrhoea. A real shame.

We had one hour in which to eat & selected this restaurant because it was close to where we were. The food was swiftly prepared, whilst we enjoyed our papadums & pickles. They were so kind & understanding that we plan to return, except this time, be a bit more relaxed about it! We suggest you do too!

Went with colleagues for dinner on a Tuesday. Nice table by the window. Service was very good. The food was tasty - not too spicy - and we all enjoyed it. I do not know enough about Nepalese cooking but it was somehow nicer than Indian food and certainly better than any other 'curry house' I have visited in Newbury

Visit Gurkha Chef every month. Food is usually fabulous and this time we were not disappointed. Staff could do with a bit of training but they do try and are pleasant. Visited with work colleagues and everyone was impressed.
