“Friendly restaurant with interesting food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2010

We ate at this restaurant on the recommendation of our B&B landlady and were not disappointed. Friendly service and very interesting food - we had not eaten at a Nepalese restaurant before and enjoyed the flavours of the food which was more gentle and aromatic than Indian cuisine.

“Delightful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2010

My partner and I visited this restaurant over the August bank holiday weekend.
We must totally agree to the previous excellent reviews - food is fantastic (the first authentic Nepalese cuisine I had in the UK), service is friendly, efficient and professional, atomosphere was very relaxing. We will certainly go back there for future weekend get-aways just to dine at this restaurant!

“This was my second visit to the Gurkha...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2010

This was my second visit to the Gurkha Chef. The Thursday night banquet offers excellent value for money. The service is generally exceptional although on this visit a couple of items arrived late and not with the rest of the food. The restaurant gets very hot at the end of the evening when busy, they have air conditioning / fan but didn't turn it on !! A couple of minor issues on this occassion but still one of the best restaurants overall in the area. Would recommend to anyone, you will not be disappointed I will return in the near future.

“Dont miss this one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2010

Stayed for a long weekend in St Leonards at the end of April 2010 and our hotelier recommended the Ghurka Chef . The food was excellent , the staff extremely friendly and the atmosphere was good . Can't fault the value for money either. Would definitely return if ever in the area again
