Light of Gurkha

Our next visit will be to Light of Gurkha, a Nepalese restaurant nestled between Tooting and Balham. Nepalese food is diverse, and draws on influences from India and Tibet, as well as native cuisines such as Newari. The food is fresh and exciting, and you will find ingredients and flavour combinations that will delight and astound you!

Be prepared for dishes such as Lamb Karnali, Chicken Khorsani, Phewa Fish, Phaelo Pharsi and Bhuteko Ko Khukra (try pronouncing those after a few drinks!). But don't be afraid, they also serve the more well-known dishes such as kormas, bhunas and dhansaks



7pm - Drinks at The Duke of Devonshire (39 Balham High Road, SW12 9AN)
7:45pm - Head for dinner at Light of Gurkha (88 Balham High Road, SW12 9AG)

The pub is halfway between Balham and Clapham South tubes. We'll be out in the rear garden in the pub if the weather is nice. If you can make it earlier than 7pm, please post a message on the meetup notice board


The Bill

As usual we will be sharing the bill equally, because splitting the bill is too much hassle for large groups


PayPal Deposit

I will be taking a £2 payment for this meetup. £1 towards the bill and £1 towards my meetup fees

    Pros: serves St Peters Brewery ale Cons: Food on the dry side, no lime pickle with the starters, noodles overcooked

    I had the signature dish. It was quite a dry spicy dish and so I was surprised that they recommended having pilau rice with it - it needed some sauce or something with it. Maybe that's just the way it was supposed to be, but not really to my liking

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
