The Gurkha Palace
Have you and your friends ever been in a situation where neither one of you can decide where to eat that night? It’s not that there’s not enough places to eat, it’s just that you’re bored with the “same ‘ol same ‘ol”?
Thankfully, there’s a place in the small quiet town of Seria that offers just that… something unique… something different…
The highly disciplined Gurkha soldiers of Nepal (under the flag of the British Army) has been around in Brunei since the 60s where they helped with the rebellion, and since then, has continued to serve Brunei until today. Therefore it is no surprise that they should at least be a place that offers Nepalese food, which is appropriately named, ‘The Gurkha Palace’.
Upon entering the restaurant, the first thing you would feel is unfamiliarity. This is because you are stepping into a restaurant that has been decorated with Nepalese influences. The place gives out a feeling of exoticness, yet as cozy as any other eatery.
A lot of the decorative ornaments and even the eating utensils are gold!
Overall, I am totally impressed with what Nepalese cuisine has to offer. I look forward to my next dine in the Gurkha Palace. There are so many other dishes that I (we) have yet to try and most importantly for commoners like me, the prices are easy on the wallet… very reasonable and comparable to other restaurants around.
The Gurkha Palace is indeed a fine addition to the food choices of Belait. Have a try and judge for yourself, something different and something unique to our usual chinese / malay food!
