We booked for an early dinner, a lovely welcome on arrival and shown to a nice table. We were advised, very well on the menu and my wife had the chicken stir fry and I had a spicy chicken dish. Both were fabulous as were...our sides of Naan and Rice. There was hand sanitizer at every table so very responsible management.More

What a great evening and wonderful food and service. The restaurant was busy but the staff kept us updated with the progress and when the food arrived it was well worth the wait. This was possibly the best curry we have ever had on holiday...or at home. Highly recommend a visit for you’re in the area, you won’t be disappointed.More

Our neighbours recommended this restaurant and, as my wife was suffering with a winter cold at the time, we thought some great spicy food would be a good idea. It was! And the great spicy food was just that. Great & spicy! Not only was...the food delicious but the service was exceptional. Everyone, especially our waiter Diram, was so friendly, helpful and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone we asked for was delivered with a smile. We’d give 6 stars if it was possible and we’ll definitely be returning. First class!More

How do you rate such an experience ? We saw the place slightly up the hill from the Main Street and walked up. It is beautiful serene and we walked in. The food here s stunning good. The kebab was hot from the grill and...the veggies done to perfection. The mom were like they should be heave. Hashtag heaven.More

This was our first Visit to the Gurkha Kitchen having seen the rating on Trip-advisor. I have to say it’s rating is fully deserved…. We decided to have Nepalese dishes and were not disappointed. When the starters arrived they were very well presented and the...taste….Wow…!! The meat was so tender and the flavours for both dishes were something we had not had anywhere else. The mains were again well presented and packed with flavours. Robin and his staff were very attentive and couldn’t do enough for us. The ambiance and atmosphere were just right and the restaurant was 3/4 full by 8.00pm in November..!! I highly recommend you visit this establishment as you will not be disappointed but remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment. We have already booked to come back in a couple of days time. Well done to Robin and his Staff for giving us a very memorable evening.More

We tried Gurkha Kitchen on our recent trip to Carvoiero, and boy were we glad! The food was excellent, and the staff were very friendly & helpful—they wanted to make sure we tried the best they had to offer. We ordered Momos and the Himalayan...Cham Cham. Both were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant & these dishes!More

We had a lovely evening, sitting outside mid october 2021. Staff is very friendly and the food is very good. One can chose if you want normally spiced, medium spiced or well spiced. We chose medium spiced which was good enough to us. We ordered...Portuguese rose and white wine by the glass, which were matching the food. We only were in Carvoeiro for a short period of time, otherwise we would have returned here.More
