We had a lovely quiet meal on a Saturday night in Gurhka Spice while on a one-off visit to Banbury. Everything was well-flavoured and each dish distinctive. Portions were very generous. Prices very reasonable (<£40 for two with starters, mains and soft drinks).

You will be delighted by the wonderful range of healthy foods on our extensive menu at the Gurkha Spice Restaurant in Banbury, Oxfordshire. We serve many curry, balti, biriyani and tandoori favourites but our menu also offers typical Nepalese specialities with their distinctive flavours and spices. Our dishes are healthier than most other Asian offerings, relying less on the extensive use of fats and more on chunky vegetables, lean meats, pickled dishes and salads.
