Thank you Gurkha Cafe and Restaurant for serving me some delicious food at 10:05pm on a Wednesday evening, after I had been turned away from The Filling Station and Frankie and Benny’s on the Royal Mile, after asking whether I could have a sandwich/simple pasta meal. It was 10pm in the capital of Scotland and these two places couldn’t provide a hungry tourist with some food.
At Gurkha, I had Vegetable Korma and Pilau Rice, which were exceptionally tasty. They were also served with extreme happiness by the manager/waiter.
