A word from Gurkha's Inn
Situated in the leafy South London suburbs, not far from Greenwich Park; Gurkha’s Inn is a firm favourite with local curry connoisseurs. High-backed leather chairs, wooden floors and low-key décor create a relaxed setting for laid-back lunches and dinner with family and friends. The extensive menu showcases the best of Indian and Nepalese cuisine, with familiar favourites like chicken jalfrezi, lamb pasanda and prawn bhuna on offer. For something a little different, why not try one of their signature dishes? We love the cod cooked with coconut milk, green herbs and mustard seeds, and the Khasi Khutta – tender lamb with peas in traditional Nepalese style. For authentic Indian food, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly service; Gurkha’s Inn is hard to beat.

    Good food, and great value. Hit the beers and ate handsomely for £30 each. Atmosphere was a little lacking as the restaurant was quite empty early on a Thursday evening. Worth a visit.

    We'd Both noted that we'd never eaten Nepalise in the last few weeks, so this was a chance to loose our cherry. Ghurka's Innis a nice little restaurant just off Trafalger Road. The decor is smart, and friendly, like the staff. The menu was mainly 'Indian Restaurant' favorites, with a reasonable range of Nepalise items across the menu. We chose Nepalese for all dishes and we're not disappointed, nicely cooked dishes, slightly left field of standard Indian cuisine, worth checking out. Try the Nepalise beer! I would say that the food Is a nice change from standard Curry.

    The food here was very nice although the portion sizes were very generous. Certainly in the rice department you could easily share between two. The staff were really lovely and also helpful with our menu selection queries. The restaurant itself was unremarkable and not what I would choose for a special occasion. We were given a little free drink of our choice at the end of the meal which is always appreciated.

    A really friendly restraint with an extensive menu of northern Indian dishes. A little quiet on the Wednesday but I'd definitely return on a weekend. We were made to feel very welcome by the waiter and our food arrived at good time. Surprisingly good selection of wines for such a small restaurant.

    i love bhindi. it is sometimes called ladies fingers. i have travelled all over europe to find the best bhindi in the world. my personal favorite is in baba thaba in a town called Ludhiana in Punjab in north west india. i ate there on 28/08/97 and have never found a better cooked bhindi. however, the gurkha is a very close second. if only it was just a little more spicy and cooked in a little less oil. it is definately worth a try. i also love the peshwari naan. a lovely crumbly feeling in your mouth as the coconut and raisins melt and you have the sweetness of the naan with the savoury bhindi.another good dish is the chicken hariyo, a bit spicy, but if you like hot, tastes like a food eqivalent of the most wonderful orgassm...

    This was my first visit to Gurka's Inn and hopefully, it won't be my last! The food was lovely, the potions were huge, even the starters. As a result, I was unable to finish my main course as I was so full! So I think in future I will just stick to a main.

    We had a dinner for two at the Gurkha's Inn. It was packed mostly with bigger groups so it seems like a fun place for birthdays or special occassions. Food was tasty, particularly the specialty dishes. I would recommend friends to go back if they lived in the area - otherwise it is quite far to get to from other parts of London.

Atmosphere was cosy and warm. Price was not too bad as well. Came to £60 for three of us for three courses. Will be visiting again.

    Gurkha's Inn Greenwich is one of my favorite curry houses. Not your everyday curry, very different menu using great quality ingredients. May have to wait a little longer fo each course but worthwhile as all cooked to order. Also they are very helpful with changes to menu or recipe. Great Beer too. Tucked away so not always found easily.

    Great service & atmosphere. Quiet and out of the way. Not sure of the difference between the Nepalese experience and a typical Indian restaurant (then menu had a lot of dishes which would not be out of place in an Indian restaurant). The food was very good none the less. The outstanding dish of the evening were the Momo Lamp Dumplings which were a starter (similar to a Japanese style dumpling), these were wonderful.

  • Gurkha's Inn is my favourite
    JonR
    Dined on 11/9/2011
    Gurkha's Inn is my favourite curry house, the Nepalese way of cooking seems to have more spices than the usual fare. Very nice service and the buffet was great value at £7/person for freshly cooked to order food despite being a buffet. Unlike other banquets where they try and rush or limit you they were very good and brought the right amount of stuff. Naans are good, not greasy or stodgy. Been before and will go again, glad they're on toptable so I can get the points.
