For adventurous foodies willing to take a short jaunt south of Manchester, West Didsbury’s Gurkha Grill is an unmissable destination. This restaurant, along Burton Road, is renowned for offering up a very niche specialty indeed: Nepalese cuisine, with border-crossing northern Indian cuisine thrown in for good measure. It’s been a long climb to the top, but this recently refurbished restaurant has firmly planted its flag at the very peak of the West Midlands food chain. Let Quandoo give you a helping hand up to the heady heights of Gurkha Grilll – reserve a spot at the top now.
The ghurkas are the famously fearless soldiers who hark from the mountains of Nepal. We suggest you arm yourself with a similar fearlessness – when have we ever offered bad advice? – and climb to the very top of Gurkha Grill’s dizzyingly diverse menu. This specialty Nepalese restaurant in along West Didsbury’s Burton Road, a short hike south of Manchester city centre, also offers good Indian cuisine too, in a nod to the two nations’ shared borders. But it’s for the Gurkhali and Gurkha Specials that you’ll really want to conquer.
The Ghurkali are simply the house recommendations, and take in ingredients, flavours, and aromas that unite Nepali and Indian cuisine. The very hot chilli chicken is a classic for the truly brave culinary ghurkas in your company, while unusual dishes like the lawsoon kukhura or khasi (garlic chicken or garlic lamb) are still dangerous enough to satisfy your inner adventurer. The Ghurka Grill specials are where this West Didsbury restaurant really shines. If you only have one chance to journey south of Manchester and book a table at this Burton Road outpost, then you have to pick one of these dishes, prepared specially by the master chef using a home-ground spice masala. Just for example, the Lhotse haans (tender duck finished in a wok with ginger, green pepper and spring onion) will take your breath away.
Great place, great food, customer service is excellent. I have been to Gurkha Grill twice and both times have been brilliant. It's reasonably priced, and great atmosphere, friendly. Highly recommended 👍
