Always excellent - a friendly welcome and delicious food! A family favourite, and first suggestion for friends visiting Chelmsford.

Incredible food - incredible service and overall I actually couldn’t fault it. I had the mixed tandoori grill and it was easily the most incredible one I’ve ever had - the salmon is untouchable! Will definitely be back and only ever ordering takeaway from here...again!More

Very welcoming as always. Well run family business. Food up to the standards we have come to expect having been eating here for over eight years. That little bit different to your normal Indian restaurant. Covid secure ie Hand gel,well spaced tables, masks etc. Well...done Harka.More

Firstly the staff are very welcoming and polite. But when they get busy they are a bit flustered but they don’t mind you giving them a quick reminder So menu is vast and the food is lovely make sure you don’t over order plates are...full. Say mild if you don’t want too much spice. A couple of our party chose medium hot food and found it a bit hot but a bit of yogurt sorted that. Fabulous happy comfortable place to eat price also average and drink on the house at the end.More

I LOVE this restaurant and cannot recommend it highly enough. Delicious food - you could order anything on the menu and know that it will be good - with fantastic flavours. A particular favourite was the Gurkha curry. The staff are all so warm and...friendly and gave us such a lovely evening. Thank you!!More

Another review and another 5 ⭐️’s for this brilliant restaurant. Although open for dining in now we have been using the Gurkha for takeaway service as several family members are unable to go out. Great staff who have become friends. Tremendous food and prompt service...100 %. Recommendations Sherpa Kukura, Chicken Hariyali, Kathmandu Chilli Chicken, 😋😋😋😋More
