It started as one of the very first Nepalese restaurants in Melbourne. Now, it's the go-to for this most underrated of cuisines.
Welcome one and all to the happy mayhem of Gurkhas in Brunswick. A happy-go-lucky spot that can always fit in an unexpected arrival or two, the dining hall offers a very informal setting to enjoy the company of loved ones, no matter how many of you there are. You can even eat like a true Nepalese; on the carpeted floor heaps of comfy cushions and a low table that can fit plenty of you around it. Now, how's that for the real Nepalese experience?
As for Nepalese food, a lot of it centres around the grill that is working its magic on whole barramundi, lamb cutlets and chicken leg, all of which are served with rice and fresh vegetables. Other non-vegetarian main courses hunker down with warming curries like chicken masala, their signature goat curry, chilli beef and the authentic meat thali that features Nepalese-style meat served up on a sharing platter.
For vegetarians, they're preparing a whole range of comforting delicacies that include hearty vegetables like sweet potato, pumpkin and cauliflower with the added goodness of black-eyed beans, Asian-style tofu and cottage cheese. Add to that curries based around fresh prawns, calamari and daily fish and you have gorgeous Nepalese food that shines the light on Melbourne at the same time.
