We used to go very often then children came along so less going out, I love the restaurant and food but love the specials as I love less choice and exquisite meals but menu's are so long difficult to choose, please bring back the special menu :D

I ate here with my wife the other week, on a Friday very late. Generally good, I eat out a lot all over London and we've recently moved to the area (overlooking the lovely Grangewood Park) so it's only 20 mins walk from us, 'quicker going downhill coming home!'

The staff were friendly, the decor a bit 'loud', lower lighting and a more intimate atmosphere would be better. I asked the waitress to recommend and was a little dissapointed with their special and a promoted Ale they were pushing. The menu could do with slimming down, less is more!

We would eat here again, but not a destination place if I lived near.

Recently had a lovely takeaway meal from here - I have lived here for many years but had not tried thier food before. My wife particularly enjoyed the Markhani Dhal.

Anyone noticed a change in the quality here? I loved this place and have visited on and off for about 5 years. In the summer I started geetting take aways from them and have had about 4 or 5 over recent months that have really disapointed. They have been different to the normal standard by some way.

Not sure if this is because its take away but its rerally put me off going in there for a meal. I am gutted about this!

Or is it me and everyone else thinks it fine?

That's what I'm guessing - a real shame.

Went there on Saturday, quite busy when we arrived but was empty by the time we left, which was only 10. Starter of vegetable samosa which was great and onion bhaji, which was spoilt by some sort of sauce poured over it - I think it was their take on mango chutney. Main course of a salmon dish and Chicken dhansak - I know, we're not very adventurous - were both OK (the salmon was the better dish) but nothing special. Also the temperature was only just the right side of OK - seemed like they'd been sat somewhere for a while waiting to be served. Overall I was a bit underwhelmed, it wasn't terrible but we wont be rushing back.

There's definitely been a change and from it being dangerously good a while back it's now not quite the same. That said, recent experiences (takeaways) have been good and some of the new curries are spot on. I have tried others in the area and still reckon GC is the best 'indian' around - happy to take suggestions and try a new one though!

This is one of the first restaurants I went to when I moved to Crystal Palace and I'm still a regular here. Their Momo is great - and definitely compares to the real deal in Nepal. Great takeaway when you can't face going out!

Being very regular to Gurkha cottage, i must admit their food and service is nevertheless comparing to any other restaurant in Crystal Palace triangle and as I am quite pleased to see all their 5 star comments on toptable website http://www.toptable....a-cottage?tab=2 .

You wouldn't work for them by any chance would you Carter simon?  Interesting choice of wording there.
