The Gurkhas are world famous soldiers, highly prized in the British Army and known for their bravery and courage. Gurkhas come from the mountainous country of Nepal which nestles in the Himalayas, bordering Tibet in the north and India on its southern foothills.
Gurkha units are closely associated with the khukuri, a forward-curving Nepalese knife. Former Chief of Staff of the Indian Army, Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, once famously said about Gurkhas: "If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha."
Nepal has diverse geographical regions and this is reflected on foods we serve at the restaurant. The use of fresh herbs and spices, many of which are unique to Nepalese cooking, are prepared in the “khal” (stone mortar), rather than powders used in other Asian cusines.
The heart of a Nepali meal is “daal bhat” (rice and lentils) and “achar” (chutney) with other main dishes thus achieving the ultimate meal. Gurkha Corner Restaurant presents a gastronomic experience, which is prepared with great care and attention and has no room for short cut methods.
We look forward to sharing with you a part of our culture and hope that you enjoy your meal.
