The owners of Sydenham’s Gurkha’s restaurant must know that the famed strength and resilience of the Nepalese-British soldiers owes more than a little to the great food they’re raised on. Inspired by the brave men of Nepal, Gurkha’s restaurant serves fine cuisine inspired by the Nepalese kingdom with that same focus on honesty, tradition and health its namesakes are known for. The authentic flavours of Nepal are found throughout the menu, the dishes prepared using specially sourced ingredients by a talented team led by an award winning head chef. Also on Gurkha’s menu is a range of better known Indian offerings, including biryanis and masalas, for those who like what they know. Opened in 2000, Gurkha’s is modern and spacious with elegantly classic furnishings and a peaceful atmosphere ideal for winding down after a day at the office or running around after children, enjoying conversation with a loved one or simply allowing yourself to truly relax and let the flavours of Asia take over

Wanted to put '4' and actually expected to put '5' as I have been there several times and really liked the place.

However, service was very, very slow (waited for the food for almost an hour) and not good overall yesterday. Severe deterioration since last time and I find it too bad. Staff apathy is terrible.

Food was still very good except a chicken dish where the meat did not seem very well...more

Really super food with a great atmosphere. The decor is from the 70s, the pictures are mismatched and not amazing. It could do with a lick of paint and an update of their bathroom. Which is why it's missing a star. The food, as I said before, is lovely. I tend to go for the Aloo rayo; pak choi in a garlic sauce, it's a lovely mild heat and packed full of flavour. The only thing that annoyed me...more

I like this place a lot - lovely clean decor, great service and very very nice food.

Ps. eating in is much better than delivery - they only accept cash on deliveries and it usually takes an hour or so to arrive.more
