Generous portions, tasty and reasonably priced

Living around the corner from the Gurkha Kitchen, we don't visit as often as we might. That's a big mistake as the food is really very good.

Although we were sat by the door, our experience on our visit was very good. We got there after reserving a table over the phone just 30 minutes before arrival at 7 PM. By 7:30 PM the place was full, and we could tell why. The food was plentiful, hot and tasty. Well presented and not too long coming. Look... More

As a visitor from our of town I was treated to a meal at this restaurant this evening by my hosts. Really impressed. Good food. Plenty of it. Also presented imaginatively. I had the chicken shashlik which was one of the best I've ever had - served with delicious yoghurt sauce and balsamic vinegar. Yum! Would definitely return when I'm... More

Very busy/popular but for a good reason! Was really nice to be able to sit down and enjoy each course with out the feeling of being rushed out the door! Highly recommended!

We have been to the Gurkha on a number of occasions as a couple and with friends. The food is wonderful. My husband has to eat gluten free food and the restaurant has a huge variety of gluten free food. The service is excellent and the prices very reasonable. The only one thing we haven't always liked is the 'blue... More

I absolutely love this place. The best curry house in town for sure. The staff are warm and welcoming. The food is absolutely delicious. They cater for allergies without making you feel awkward. The menu has many Nepalese dishes which are just awesome. If I could afford to eat here every night I would definitely not go anywhere else. Even... More

We dined here last night. Despite the restaurant being really busy, our food was on time and served by courteous friendly staff. We have been before on our trips to visit our daughter in Exeter and will be back. The Range and flavours of the Nepalese/Indian fusion food is superb.
