Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very accommodating and friendly to book with. Felt you were a valued customer. I had the set lunchtime menu (good deal at £10.95) and my husband ordered off the main menu.

Amazing food still after going there iver the years. We live 40 minutes away but look forward to every visit. We were looked after royally by the staff. It was Valentines night and busy but service was very personal. I had the lamb ribs with...minty creamy sauce. Cooked in a tandoori, beautiful, just that little bit spicy. Can still recommend very highly. Thank you.More

A tasty and enjoyable meal at sensible prices and served by a polite, professional and pleasant member of the restaurant team. We arrived at 18.00 on a Saturday evening, having booked a table, were seated immediately, drinks order taken while we perused the extensive menu,...and the food order taken once we were ready. The food arrived piping hot around 10 minutes later, by which time the restaurant was around 75% full, with a range of customers (couples, groups of friends, family group, and people waiting for takeaways) I enjoyed a "chunks of lamb" curry dish, my wife had a King Prawn Korma, and we shared a mateer paneer and a portion of egg fried rice. With two soft drinks added in, the total bill was £45, good value for money given how basic prices have risen and the fact that the restaurant is in expensive Winchester. 100 metres from the Theatre Royal, so perfect for pre-theatre and post-theatre meals. The Worthy Lane car park is four minutes' walk away and free after 17.00More

Really friendly staff, nice atmosphere and fantastic food. Lots of menu choices too, both Nepalese and Indian. The Ghurka lamb leg curry special was the best lamb curry dish I've ever had at a curry restaurant.

Husband and myself in Winchester for Christmas market and had decided on curry for dinner, we had already researched Gurkha’s Inn and menu sounded lovely, Arrived just before 7, the place was already busy but we were seated . Everyone we spoke with hadn’t been...before but all loved the food. We shared the seafood platter as a starter and was in heaven with the first mouthful, so tasty, I chose the Kathmandu lamb curry as my main, was totally blown away by how utterly gorgeous it was, The meat was so tender, the sauce was rich and portions very generous. Service was spot on, I could not recommend this enough and would return to Winchester just to eat here again.More

Popped in here for lunch while Christmas shopping. As always with the Gurkha inn the food was fantastic. We had garlic chilli chicken and tandoori chicken jalfrezi, both dishes were very tasty. Service was good.

We were met at the door by a waiter who grudgingly pointed to a table we could have which was difficult to access and on top of other diners, despite the restaurant being (and remaining) more than half empty. Although we struggled to get into...our seats no effort was made to assist us as we had to move the tables to even get seated. As our table and seats were touching another group of diners we lacked any privacy and were extremely cramped as we ate. The vegetable curry was composed of virtually raw onion and cauliflower and was eaten in unnecessarily cramped conditions . We will not be returning.More

Visited when passing through Winchester - we were lucky that we were able to be squeezed in to the restaurant which was full on a Tuesday night. Excellent food and great value for money - would recommend

Vegetable biriyani (spicy version) was excellent. I loved it 😅 Onion pakora is also one of my favourites..
