More about Gurkha Cafe & Restaurant, Edinburgh

With its traditional decor and wooden beams creating a warm and intimate ambience, Gurkha Cafe & Restaurant in Edinburgh’s Old Town feels quite like a cosy Himalayan mountain hut.

Then move on to a flavoursome curry, like the lamb khutta (lamb leg cooked with traditional Nepalese herbs and served with rice) or Ghurka Cafe’s special chicken (roasted chicken prepared with chef’s blend of spices served with daal makhani).

Perfect in every way. Food, staff and service excellent. Ideally located just a short walk from the back of Waverley Station. 35 minutes door to door from North Berwick.
