Review on Gurkha Diner
Gurkha Diner an acclaimed Indian restaurant first opened its doors in 2009 in the leafy suburbs of Cobham in the heart of Surrey, by the team that cooked for Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales back in 1992. The restaurant with its frontage of floor to ceiling windows has a smart contemporary décor, with well-laid tables on wood flooring and a pretty walled patio area for dining al fresco when the weather is warm.
The kitchen has been the recipient of numerous plaudits for its authentic cooking and has an award winning chef manning the stoves. Ravi Deulkar trained as a chef with the well regarded Oberoi Hotel Group and was previously head chef at Michelin starred Zaika in Kensington and Rasoi Vineet Bhatia in Chelsea.
Seasonal ingredients are carefully sourced locally and delivered daily ensuring the freshness of the produce. Meats, fish, bread and other foods are cooked in a clay tandoor oven creating a unique and authentic flavour, particularly to the restaurant's signature seafood dishes such as Patrani Machchi from the West region, a whole sea bass prepared in traditional Parsi fashion where it is steam cooked with coconut, sesame seeds, coriander and mint and enveloped in banana leaves.
There is a well crafted cocktail menu together with a first-class wine list created by Sommelier Maria Rodriguez, who previously worked for Gordon Ramsay at Claridges.
