Gurka/Nepal restaurant

Post by smudger » Wed Aug 08, 2018 12:11 pm

Four of us went to the new Gurka restaurant and impressed with food. At first glance thought helpings were rather small but turned out very satisfying. They do a carry out service but heard waiter tell someone could be up to an hour for carry out meal to be ready.

We have a Gurkha /Nepalese Restaurant in Buxton the food is fine along with the service and surroundings,however I don't think it differs a great deal from a lot of Indian food.As previous post where is it? :) :)

It’s up the road that takes you from restaurant hill to Algar Seco, The Wolf sits on the corner!
If you get one of the Carvoeiro Freemaps, it’s number 54.

Amazing how different peoples views of a place differ so much ! On TripAdvisor it is the number 1 Indian restaurant in Carvoeiro but we had possibly the worst Indian meal since we came here.
My prawn biryani had what appeared to be deep fried small prawns in unspiced rice with a bland vegetable sauce and my wife had a lamb dish in what she described as unspiced Bisto. The friendliness of the staff was beyond reproach and, when we commented that the medium was in fact bland, said that we should have ordered medium to hot.
It will be interesting to get other comments in the hope that our experience was a one-off bad day.

Shame about your visit, for Indian I was under the impression Pashmina (former Bistro 72) was the place to go. When we went to Gurka, didn’t choose Indian style dishes. Like you interested in other views.
PS only went there as family wanted to try. When I’m here like to do Portuguese, as they say “when in Rome”......!!

For years we have considered the Bollywood indian in Armaçao de Pera to be the best in the area. They have now opened in CVO so it will be interesting to get a report/ comparison between the two.

Why don't we try for ourselves ? Because there are too many b----y tourists at this time of year and we cannot park anywhere near :lol:

Yes! The same one that was at Armacao. Same people.
Best in town. Maybe a bit expensive comparing to other indian food restaurant but well worth it.
Spices and cuissine are no joke here.
Did lower my taste of Pashmina...
