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.

Works visit with the team. Food was flavoursome and the right level of spice. Each dish had its unique taste and not the traditional gravy type of dishes you find in Indian restaurants. The only issue was the language barrier but certainly not one to put me off.

Went recently with the family( 16 & 19), great new premises right next to there old one but double the size, jam packed as always, service can sometimes be a bit slow, the great food and buzz make up for this. The free pompedoms were enjoyed followed by 4 starters, 4 mains a couple of rices and some breads, all... More

Great menu of different dishes which we are working our way through. Always extremely tasty and well prepared. The starter of Momo is lovely. Hot dishes spicy but never overpowering. Highly recommend

The food is good quality staff are friendly but don't order through just eat as its more expensive and ordering can take a bit longer.
