Ghurka Village, Kidlington, Oxfordshire.
I’ve had a takeaway from here before and wasn’t greatly impressed with it, However, my problem is I love Asian cooking but I can’t eat anything too hot so I often end up with something fairly mild and boringly English. I’d always wanted to eat in the restaurant though as I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. I saw that they have won the 3rd place award for Asian food in Oxfordshire so that made me more determined to try it.
The restaurant itself used to be a pub and is now half restaurant and half pub. It was packed when we got there but not many people were drinking so I don;t know why they have kept it as part-pub.
The menu had more Indian dishes and less Nepalese dishes than I was expecting but I ordered two Himalayan/Nepalese dishes which were absolutely stunning. The starter I had would probably be quite salty for most people but fortunately it was just to my personal taste. I had a chaphati instead of a naan as I normally find them greasy in restaurants but they did look very nice and non-greasy.
It wasn’t cheap but definitely worth the money we paid. They seem to do lunch time deals which I will certainly be taking advantage of. A fabulous restaurant for our village and I will be recommending it to everybody looking for a decent dinner!
