We have visited the Gurkha Oven a number of times, it is one of our favourites. It is not local to us, we need to drive about 40 minutes to get to it, so it is more of a special treat than a regular haunt. A group of four visited last night, and we found the staff just as welcoming... More

In Spalding looking for a good meal on a bad weather day. Had seen some good reviews for the Gurkha Oven and decided to give it a try. A good decision! Popadoms were tasty, Duck Tikka hit the spot and the Spicy Lamb Kidney dish was epic. Recommended by the owner we ordered a second dish to accompany the mains.... More

We found this resturant by pure chance ... it is by far the best curry I have had ever .... Nepalese cuisine gives some variation but all your regular favourites are there too ... The 4 of us had chicken tikka, duck tikka and Nepalese mixed starter.. mains were amazing freshly cooked and the goat curry was perfect ... £80... More

I have heard a lot about this restaurant from others so decided to try it. I was not disappointed, what a brilliant meal, excellent service and lovely surroundings. If I was to criticise anything it would be the restaurant was very brightly lit for a romantic evening. However the quality of the food and the helpful staff made up for... More

I am not into spicy or hot food, but after a lot of consideration, decided to give Gurkha Oven ago. I was pleasantly surprised. I explained to the waiter what I don't like. I had a chicken korma with pilau rice, a plain naan bread and sagaloo. It was delicious. My daughter had buttered chicken so I tried this too.... More

Ate here as lone traveller. It offers something different to usual Indian restaurants. The clue obviously being in the name. Good range of different dishes, including goat curries. Everything I had was very tasty, and portions were generous. Bill for starter, main, side, bread, and a large bottle of beer was £28. Would definitely recommend.

Really great place to eat, good menu, great service, nice tasting food. Restaurant has a good view of the sheep market. Being a converted bank the atmosphere isn't quite as intermit as some more traditional restaurants (in my opinion), but although I wouldn't pick it for a first date it's an ideally venue for a meal with friends, family and...

My first visit here, it's a straightforward Indian restaurant with good quality food and excellent service. Chicken Madras was just how I like it, well cooked and presented and left me wanting more. We had mixed starters which were lovely and it was all cooked to order, swiftly but we weren't rushed either. Probably the best sit down curry in... More
