Saga has world’s first Nepalese restaurant at sea

Saga’s boutique ship Spirit of Adventure offers guests the chance to experience delicious Nepalese cuisine in its Khukuri House. The first Nepalese restaurant at sea serves up tasty dishes such as king prawn madras with lobster samosas, all included in the price.

Just in from Kathmandu, 32-year-old chef Shovan Gautam is already delighting guests with the fragrant meat and vegetable dishes – and pungent spices – of his homeland.  Executive chef John Mc Cerery is relishing what Shovan is bringing to Khukuri House. ‘Shovan’s home-grown dishes and expertise using spices is really exciting,’ he says. ‘We work together as a team to create a homefrom-home atmosphere across the ship while continually raising the quality and presentation in the restaurants.’

Saga’s home town of Folkestone has long been associated with the Royal Gurkha Rifles, and Khukuri House is a tribute to this long-standing Gurkha heritage.
