Description: Welcome to The Gurkha Kitchen, an Nepalese and Indian Cuisine at Boxburn.The Gurkha Kitchen offers such authentic food from the Himalayan region that you may get completely lost in the fresh herbs and spices. Forget that you are in the Broxburn,‎ West Lothian of Edinburgh, and let the aromas of cardamom and cumin take you to the land of the tallest mountains in the world. Enjoy the panorama photographs of the Himalaya as you savor the flavors of Nepal and India. Nepal is the country known as birth place of Budhha ,Highest peak in the world Mt. Everest and great bravery of Gurkha soldiers.Gurkhas come from the hills of Nepal and have been recruited to serve in the British Army for almost 200 years. The incredible bravery and loyalty of these remarkable people has won them great respect and affection. Today, the Gurkhas remain an important part of the British Army. In more recent times, Gurkhas have served in the Falklands and Gulf Wars, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Peacekeeping missions have taken them to Kosovo, Bosnia, East Timor and Sierra Leone. We are here to serve Nepalese traditional food with friendly manner of service together with great quality freshly prepare food by Nepalese Chef with his own style at its most authentic and vibrant form. Our aim is to stand out from the crowd to enhance Traditional Nepalese food in most significant way as in Nepal.

Never expected to find such delicious food in a small town like Broxburn, the staff were very polite and attentive, this restaurant is a joy to sit in and eat a meal. First class and we will definitely be back again and again.

“Heaven sent !”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

As visitors to Broxburn, we were recommended to try the Gurkha Kitchen. It was beyond our expectations, and certainly was one of the best Asian meals we've ever had. Presentation was perfect, as was the warmth and helpfulness of the staff. A very comprehensive menu of both Nepalese and Indian dishes, and very tasteful surroundings. Oh, lucky, LUCKY Broxburn, to have Heaven on your doorstep !

Great food and service. Friendly staff. We enjoyed it immensely. We were tired and looked around for somewhere nice to eat which took sometime, then we saw this restaurant and gave it a go. Which turns out to be the best thing we did. Great restaurant, would thoroughly recommend it!
