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. No trip to a Nepalese restaurant would be complete without trying Nepal’s most famous dish: momos (steamed dumplings filled with spiced chicken or mixed vegetables) and we recommend beginning your meal with some. 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).
As well as Nepalese dishes you’ll find some Indian favourites available Gurkha Restaurant, from korma to tikka masala, with plenty of options for vegetarians and seafood lovers too.

Awesome meal, everyone enjoyed everyting we ordered. Can’t recommend enough! Service was fantastic and it’s a great location. Madras was the best I’ve ever had.
Had a lovely meal, the food is really good well worth the visit, service really good too, will go again when I next visit Edinburgh
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Café Gurkha. Being traditionally Indian eaters, this was our first taste of Nepal. Service was great - having asked for a pause between main and starter, waiter checked with us to ensure we were ready for our main. Loved my garlicky fish and garlic naan.
