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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

It was our first experience of Nepalese food and we shall certainly return. The staff are attentive and friendly and passionate about their menu. We shared the starter of Crispy prawns an pork dumplings. To follow I had the Sea Bass which was amzing and my husband had Salmon, the flavour of this curry was esquisite.

We had a really lovely evening. The food was absolutely delicious and there is the option of traditional Nepalese food or more well known western dishes. Everything we ordered was amazing and the service was impeccable. We can't wait to go back

Had dinner with a group of 10, we were all properly amazed by the quality of the food. It was a great night with amazing flavours in every serving; even the starter was so good I didn't want it to finish, and I hardly ever get impressed by a starter!
We've been to quite a few curry places but Gurkha Planet impressed us so much we still talk about it.
The service was great and friendly too; what else could I say than absolutely recommended!

Our second visit to Gurkha Planet and it didn't disappoint. This time it was for a family get together and we all really enjoyed the food and the beer. It was a Monday night so wasn't very busy but the staff were excellent as was the food. Will definitely be returning.
