Great food, excellent service.
The three of us love Ghurka food and we were definitely not disappointed.
Very tasty starters and mains, all served with really nice service.
So impressed we are going back on our last day.
I visited Gurkha Cafe a few years back and recommended the venue to a group of friends whilst in Edinburgh. We were not disappointed. The food was really tasty and everybody commented how good the curries were. Definitely one to try when you are next...in Edinburgh.More
The decision for 'what to order for my main course' was made incredibly easy when I caught a glimpse of a bloke on the table next to us tucking into a leg of lamb where the meat was literally falling off the bone.
We had...poppadoms with a pickle tray for appetisers which was a great start to the experience!
For starter we had mixed pakora which was shortly followed by our mains of garlic naan, pilau rice, paneer curry & the eagerly anticipated LAMB KHUTTA!
The food was so good that all of our plates were pretty much spotless and could've probably been re-used without being run through the dish washer.
The service matched the quality of the food and we would've tipped had the payment device given the option to as we had no cash on us.More
Always visit here while staying nearby. Always a friendly welcome from staff. Our food was freshly made and delicious and beautifully presented and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will return. Highly recommend a visit here :) :).
Excellent food here at the Gurka cafe and restaurant. Eat in or out and offer takeaway too.
Atmospheric restaurant and lovely staff. Our food was to notch and no problems getting sorted with a gluten and dairy option ( I’m coeliac and dairy intolerant and...very wary)
Highly recommend for a really nice experienceMore
Only reason I’ve not given 5 stars was the service got a little slack towards the end. Purely down to how busy and how popular this place is. We had booked but by the time we left there was a huge walk in queue. The...staff are friendly and helpful I just think it’s a symptom of the climate we are in. I’ve never seen so many places advertising for staff. The food was simply AMAZING. I had tandoori king prawn - out of this world. Succulent and beautiful flavours. My husbands madras was hot hot hot but soooooo good. Highly recommend this place.More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
