Gurkha Himalayan Kitchen

Authentic Nepalese cuisine. Exceptionally highly rated on Tripadvisor.

Gurkha Himalayan Kitchen is a long-time supporter of MealShare.ca, a dining-out based charity that costs you nothing to participate in.

The participating dishes at Gurkha rotate, so we'll have to see what qualifies as a MealShare item. You are under no obligation to order any MealShare items. It is enough to simply support the restaurant and thereby acknowledge their charitable contribution.

    Anyone want to try yak meat momos at their sister restaurant? http://www.yakyeti.ca/zgrid/proc/site/sitep.jsp

      As per my review that I posted, I wasn't overly blown away by the food, however, if there is an event and I can make it I would certainly come out just for the awesome company alone.

      If I go, it'd only be for the yak meat momos. Gurkha has weak mains but good appys. Since the chef at Yak and Yeti is from Gurkha, I expect the same there.

    Hi Simon. Can I bring two guests, it only allows me to add a +1. Thanks.

    January 9, 2014

    • Simon

      No problem Lance. I've adjusted your RSVP and also changed the guest limit. Thanks!

      Thanks Simon, see you there

    Oh boy. We're 20 people! OK... Final instructions -- They will probably split us into 2 or 3 tables.
    To help out the restaurant (since crushing out 20 meals to come out all at once will probably only lead to frustration on their part and disappointment on ours), when a table is full, just go ahead and start ordering. I'll sit with the stragglers drifting in last. (^_^)

    Thank you everyone for your interest. See you on Friday!

    Are we going to share the dishes? Or we will eat our own dishes respectively?

    January 9, 2014

    • Simon

      Hi Lorenz,
      If you're into sharing, I recommend that when people get to the restaurant, right away they should start getting into teams of 4-6 to share between them.
      If you're going to get your own dishes and have a separate bill, just be sure to mention that to your server, and to the people around you so they don't try to steal your dumplings or what not. :P

    This was the place with the great appies? Isn't there a dessert place around there too that you like Simon?

      I think 5pm or 6pm last time I went by. I'm thinking of swinging by early to maybe pick up something for peeps who show up early at Gurkha. -_^

      January 8, 2014

    • Simon

      The place is http://transylvaniant...­ . My bad--They close at 9 PM. I must've been there a heckuva lot later the last time I went to Gurkha with my friend. Their chimney cake looks intriguing...

    Is there parking there?

    January 8, 2014

    • Simon

      Oh boy. I recommend you check the Google map. We're smack in downtown. I vaguely remember a parking lot next to it, but it might be part of Shoppers Drug Mart (?).

    Simon, Thank you so much for organizing this event, it will be awesome and for taking the time to put that organizational post. Just a heads up that dietary wise and financially I will be ordering only what I eat so that I can keep track of my own personal caloric intake and ensure that I am within my own personal budget. I won't be sharing any dishes since I have some allergies that I need to ensure that I am personally responsible for. I have eaten here before, therefore, I have already pre-planed with confidence what that meal would be. Since it sounds like the game plan is for sharing, I will make sure upon arrival that my bill is completely separate from the groups.

      I have the same issue. I have celiac so it limits my food choices. Usually I can select 2 things on most menus and forget Chinese restaurants. I can't have anything. So I totally hear where you're coming from.

      January 8, 2014

    • Simon

      Hi Shila, Hi Stephanie,
      No worries! But if I happen to order something that you can eat, feel free to reach over and grab a nibble. :P

  • Aileen

    Not sure yet might be too hot and spicy.

    January 7, 2014

    • Simon

      Hi Aileen,
      Last time I went, the spiciness level was really mild. If someone were to order their curry hoping for Indian-food-spicy, I'd say they would be very disappointed.
      There are a variety of items there, many not spicy. Just be sure to check with the waitress first.

      January 8, 2014

    • Shila_Bhimji

      They also have hot sauces and chilli sauces to adjust if you want something spicer, I am just commenting for everyone in general. They can even make mild as well

    Hi Everyone,
    Thank you for your interest in Gurkha Himalayan Kitchen!

    Since there are quite a number of persons attending, I recommend that once you get to the restaurant, start organizing yourselves into who's into sharing and who wants to get individual orders. For sharing groups, it would probably be easier to break up into groups of 4 instead of trying to order enough for the entire Meetup. That would probably help the restaurant too.

    They are a SMALL restaurant, so if you decide not to attend, please update your RSVP. I will be calling ahead to make sure they are prepared for us.

    Thank you.

    January 8, 2014

  • Shila_Bhimji

    Thanks for inquiring about the extension, much appreciated.

    2 · December 19, 2013

  • Simon

    Hi Everyone! Right now we have 10 seats, but the restaurant has suggested that with enough notice, they can definitely accommodate more. I am therefore expanding the RSVP limit. Thank you everyone for your interest!

    I would also like to point out that Gurkha Himalayan Kitchen is a long-time supporter of MealShare.ca, a dining-out based charity that costs you nothing to participate in.

    Trying to expand the reservation... Please stand by.
