I’ve had Indian, Thai I love… but Nepalese? I was keen to try something different and Gurkha Kitchen definitely fitted the bill.
With a menu that required Google for a bit of clarification, we decided on chicken choila and saag aloo to start and Everest chicken and chicken Gurkha special for mains. Perhaps our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, because we added mushroom basmati rice and peshwari naan.
Our food was ready within half an hour, packed with complimentary poppadoms and dips. The portions were ginormous and the starters would have sufficed as mains but we powered through.
The saag aloo was delicious; chunks of potato in sweet and spicy sauce, wrapped up in a homemade soft chapati. The chicken choila was lightly spiced with red onion, again in a standout chapati. The Everest chicken was tasty in a creamy tomato sauce, though I could’ve handled more heat.
The chicken Gurkha special was a fiery affair, with chunks of chicken clearly cooked on a skewer.
For £26 for all that, Gurkha Kitchen is excellent value.
