We visited Gurkha Spice on Sat 4th June, never having been there before, we were immediately made to feel very welcome and a special fuss was made over our three year old granddaughter. The meal was delicious and different to most of the Indian restaurants...More

The most pleasant and humble welcome from this strongly Buddhist influenced restaurant staff, the décor is very 1920's at the waning of the British Raj, music is traditional Nepalese and the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. Then we had some food.... Oh. My. God!! Having...More

An excellent establishment, as it tends to be quiet, so a relaxed meal is usually assured. The service and food are excellent, and there's a big screen that usually plays a variety of Nepalese and Indian tourist videos to keep you mildly entertained. The first...More

Hello, I was just wondering if you have changed the recipe for Honeymoon Chicken? I used to absolutely love the creamy, coconuty flavour and I was not at all spicy. As I don't do well with spicy food, even really mild spice. However the last 2 times I have had it, it seems to have been spicy. There are these little black seed things that never used to be in there. Is that what is causing the spice? Thanks, Emma.

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.
