Description: About Gurkha’s"Better to die than be a coward" is the motto of the world-famous Nepalese Gurkha soldiers who are an integral part of the British Army.The potential of these warriors was first realized by the British at the height of their empire-building in the last century. The Victorians identified them as a "martial race", perceiving in them particularly masculine qualities of toughness."If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha." -Sir Sam Manekshaw “There is No safer place to be then with Gurkhas” -Prince Harry

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I have passed this place hundreds of times but never ventured in until last weekend, I'm so glad I did. The staff are so respectful, friendly, polite & helpful. The food is AMAZING. Well presented, hot, fresh food with very generous portions, too generous I couldn't finish it all. Great variety of drinks and cheap!! I would highly recommend this to everybody.

“Outstanding every visit”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

One of the best restaurants I've ever visited. Friendly, attentive staff and lovely surroundings. The food is without exception excellent, one of the few places I visit where I want to try everything on the menu at some point. Cannot recommend highly enough

“Great taste of Napal”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had a lovely meal here while staying up in Musselburgh, just outside of Edinburgh Scotland. A real taste of the food of Napal. Service was excellent, had full attention but not in your face. Highly recommend if you go up to Scotland.
