Amazing food, wonderful service, just a bit too brightly lit and perhaps the divider screens could be a nice Nepalese cloth with a clear wipable plastic cover and not those white plastic ugly things, but I do appreciate the need to adapt fast.
We had a delicious meal. All the food was freshly prepared. The service was excellent.
I will start by saying our waiter was excellent. The booking was made easily and we were expected. I accept that Covid has had a huge impact on ambience with the inclusion of screens etc. Not a huge restaurant and it was quite loud making hearing the waiter with his mask on quite hard. It became noisier for us sitting by the door as the chef wanted to open the door from time to time to circulate the air, but then it was cold. I had high hopes for the food but have to say myself and my guests were disappointed. It was cooked fresh but our dishes were very bland when we had expected them to be far more flavourful, however one of my guests ordered a dish that turned out to be very spicy and the menu had not indicated it would be. The rice was lovely as was the garlic naan, but the main dishes were lacking in flavour.
Fabulous authentic food with excellent service. This is the only place that does a genuine Biryani served as it should be with Raita.
Had to wait a short time for a table as it was full up and busy due to "Eat out to help out". Food was outstanding, and service was very good even though they were rushed off their feet. Drinks were very expensive though.
The food was outstanding. Really subtle spicing in both my courses. We really enjoyed it.
Great, friendly restaurant serving wonderful food. Would definitely go again
It is difficult to find fault with my favourite Gurkha Planet. I usually sit on a bench seat at the side but for the first time was directed to a chair in the middle. Over dinner this was uncomfortable and gave me back ache. Otherwise excellent.
The staff were great and very friendly, and the food was delicious, flavoursome, and tasted fresh. Only complaint was the portion sizes which were quite small - especially the starters and bowls of rice. The mains were a good size for us to have one each.
Fantastic food, really great service (our waiter was wonderful), love the fusion cooking and just really adore this restaurant. We'll be back again and again!
Lovely food. Great pricing. Will go again.
Excellent food and service as usual.
Fantastic food wonderful service, will definitely come again and recommend to all.
Lovely meal, lovely people. Full marks thanks
I always recommend Gurkha Planet, it's consistently brilliant.
The two waitresses were simply lovely, so attentive and friendly. Starters good, prawn puri (bread very dry though) and calamari nice. My lamb curry was very delicious, as was the naan. My husbands dhall was pretty bland, and maybe not the best choice, having come back from Sri Lanka recently we expected something a bit more tasty. We would give the restaurant another try.
Amazing food but very quiet. We were the only diners in there at 9pm in a Friday night! Would definitely go again though.
Delicious food, Nepalese flavours, robustly spiced, with good heat, all very yummy, and served with a smile. Waiter couldn't do enough for us!
We had a lovely meal with friends. The food and service was excellent. Our waiter was very enthusiastic about seemed genuinely pleased to serve us. A small restaurant with a nice friendly feel serving very tasty food. Wine was reasonably priced, 3 courses for 4 people with 2 beers and 2 bottles of wine came in at under £150. We have booked for one of their celebration evenings later in the year.
It was a quiet evening, and it was so lovely and cool inside despite the temperature outside. The young lady serving us was excellent: very friendly and efficient. The food was fantastic. We would definitely return.
From the outside looks pretty basic but you walk in it's like another world. The food is to die for they cant do enough for you really made the night special thank you
I was the only return customer of our group of five - you now have 4 new fans!
Pity there was only 1 bottle of cider in stock.
Very enjoyable meal, the proprietor made suggestions for our meal which we followed, it tasted very good
We was a table of 17
Ans the food was beautiful and all served on time and hot, a full restaurant at the time but no delays on service
We will definitely be going back
Very enjoyable. Dietary requirements well catered for
First time to this popular neighbourhood restaurant. The menu had always seemed limited with a high proportion of very hot dishes, but we now know this is a great little place with very good food and a pleasant atmosphere.
Really great. Food, service, atmosphere, and value was outstanding. Will definitely go back soon.
My wife and I enjoyed another very good meal on Saturday evening. Although the restaurant was very busy, the service was excellent.
Incredible food as always
we were a large group and all agreed some of the best food we have recently had, will be returning !
I would recommend this nice place but not when full of noisy people. Apart from the noise this place is very good.
Tasty clean food.
Good service and delicious dessert.
We were made to feel welcome and the service was prompt, without being intrusive. The menu offered a number of interesting options that our party of six were not familiar with, including several appetising vegetarian choices, all of which were rather delicious. The spicing was appropriately pitched, with some dishes served with additional slices of chilli for the more adventurous. The atmosphere was good and I am very glad we'd booked, as it was getting quite full by the time we left around 9.00pm. We enjoyed the Gurkha beers, which were new to us and the final bill worked out around £25 per head including a reasonable tip, so I consider that very good value for a pleasant evening with good food.
Food is fabulous...all just a bit hectic on serving.
I recently met with a friend one evening for a catch up/birthday celebration. The food was delicious and nicely presented. All the waiters were very friendly and efficient. A lovely evening and a little gem of a restaurant. I will certainly return soon.
Had seen very good reviews. Disappointed that when we asked for a mild curries for 3 of us. They were all too spicy hot to eat. It was cold in the restaurant and even colder in the toilets. If you like spicy food. Then this is great for you.
Our second exceptional New Year's Eve at Gurkha Planet. A beautifully balanced fusion menu showcasing seared scallops on a pea risotto, a delicious champagne granite, lamb cooked two ways and, the piece de resistance, an outstanding modern twist on vanilla cheesecake with mango sorbet and fresh raspberries filled with intensely flavoured coulis. Hits of spice throughout but without uncomfortable heat. This really is a gem of a restaurant and very reasonably priced; why it wasn't completely packed out I don't know. Give it a go!
Wonderful food and was made to feel very welcome. Food was amazing and will be back again as soon as possible
