About Gurkha Café

Situated in the very centre of Edinburgh, just off of Market Street is the Ghurka Café, an unassuming Nepalese restaurant particularly popular with hungry locals seeking a taste of the exotic. Inspired by the traditional flavoursome dishes of the Himalayan region, this well sized restaurant provides its diners with a whole host of new and exciting food adventures, many of the selections not often found on menus here in Britain, taken directly from the recipes of Nepal’s home kitchens and transported to the UK to be recreated using the best and most authentic ingredients. Ghurka Café is set within an historic old Edinburgh building, surrounded by the history and character of this central area, moments from Princes Street Gardens and the main shopping and tourist areas of the city. With this in mind, for those seeking somewhere to kick back and relax after a hard day pounding the pavements or to enjoy a trip to a whole other part of the world without so much as hopping on the bus.

Great Service and the best naans in town. Curries were much better than the oily stuff elsewhere! Definitely recommended

Not impressed at first as we tried to book using a voucher and they were having none of it even though there were no restrictions on it....anyway we booked and went along. It was quite empty when we first got there, staff nice and attentive.... Starters were gorgeous (chicken pakora and spicy poppadoms with dips) definitely whet our appetites for the mains. Plates were hot which again is a bonus as my husband had a thing about cold food! Anyway, my main was fabulous, i had lamb special dish and my husbands was 'ok' he had garlic chilli chicken. Naan breads were totally freshly made and piping hot and overall I really enjoyed the Gurkha grill, hubby was left feeling a little 'deflated' but I think that's just cos then starter Built him up too much!! Definitely recommend for an authentic Indian:Nepalese dinner at a reasonable price!
