Good Indo-nepalese food

Loved food, decor and service Parking was a bit of a problem as we are not local and didn't know where to park. A quick call to the restaurant sorted that. Loved the food, would repeat if in the area.

Absolutely disgusting. Chicken was either reheated or overcooked not quite sure but it was horrible. The plain naan bread was obviously reheated from the previous night as this was rubbery. The poppadoms were soft (obviously the previous nights left overs). Absolutely disgusting. Start of the night so we obviously had the previous nights cooked food that hadn't been used. Shocking,...

We were staying locally and fancied something different, and we are very glad we did. After ordering a take away for three the food was ready at the agreed time (1/2 an hour) which we then collected and ate at the hotel. From packaging to plate to mouth we were all very impressed, delicious! We will by returning customers and... More

Yet again this place pleases! Again had another fantastic take away, full of great flavours and again did an off the cuff version of buttered lamb for the mrs as they weren't too busy. Still keep meaning to actually dine here but will!

Tried the Nepalese curry and was blown away-not by chilli but the standard of cooking and flavour in a takeaway curry! Very rich but delicate and just enough kick, recommend the lamb.

Fantastic food, really nice staff and a lovely pleasant atmosphere. Have also had delivery from here, although they have been busy the food is definitely worth the wait!!

I love visiting Exeter for a curry, and this is a gem, nearer to Heavitree that the city. The ambiance is good and the service attentive. But the food is the real plus. I love their garlic king prawns and lamb dishes. A real must!

I've ordered takeaway a couple of times from The Gurkha - each time the food arrived promptly, was "hot straight from the stove" and tasted great.
