Description: The first and still the only Nepalese restaurant in Swindon, it would be all too easy for the team at Gurkha Village to rest easy. However this fantastically friendly restaurant works tirelessly to maintain the reputation that it has quickly gained here in the town where it sits pretty as a real local favourite. Situated in the town���s Gorse Hill neighbourhood, Gurkha Village is worth the wander from the centre, providing a perfect combination of warm, relaxing atmosphere and deliciously exotic food. Designed with simplicity and comfort in mind, the dining room is fairly frill free, only touches of attractive art and greenery giving hints of the restaurant���s Himalayan heritage. Freshly cooked food is traditional and tempting, the menu offering both Indian style classics such as biryanis and tandoori dishes as well as intriguing Nepalese specials made to authentic home style recipes. A real selling point is Gurkha Village���s dedicated children���s menu which includes English and Indian options - ideal for family dining.

Was expecting something a little different but turned out to be pretty much the same as any other curry restaurant just had to wait longer

We had never been here before & have to say i was somewhat weary after reading some of the more recent posts, however,upon finishing our meal we were more than happy, the staff were friendly & attentive & the food was excellent.

We enjoyed a set meal via a Groupon voucher. The food was very good & the staff friendly. Our only complaint was that the server led us to believe that certain items were included in the deal, but we were actually charged extra for them on our bill.

We have been here before and we couldn't really fault it, great food and staff. HOWEVER, I think the recent change in management has affected the staff. The last time we went on a Groupon deal, and as soon as they knew it was a Groupon it was like they immediately changed attitude. Also, the deal had changed without us knowing, but we didn't kick up a fuss. The thing that really annoyed me was being told we were not allowed to take the rest of my meal home - what is that all about? (I can understand this rule on an all-you-can-eat, but not for a single meal which we had paid for). last time we came (non Groupon) we were allowed. If you don't like people using a Groupon, don't set up the deal!!! For the sake of the attitude on this night, they have lost our custom.

visited with my partner in a busy night without booking but the manager gave me a table after waiting just 5 minutes. I was well explained about the voucher which i had bought on internet and got poppadums with very tasty dips and onion bhagi which is one of best ever i had. We had excellent main course called Gurkha Chilli Chicken and my partner had nepalese dish called chartmary. Excellent food and great service from the waiters made our evening special. Definitely going back and recommend others to go at least once.
