Thank you for a really wonderful meal. We ordered a starter of mushrooms and main of a wonderful veggie dish of lentils and tamarind. We also had beans and potatoes with rice. The food was delicious, full of flavour and great value. Definitely far superior to the average curry. The next time I visit Exeter I will definitely be back.... More

Small buffet style menu but the full a la carte was available if we wished. Made very welcome as we arrived before they opened as website stated from 5.30pm, we were invited in to have a drink whilst the food was prepared. Lovely food and excellent value, parking is an issue but we found spaces on the road opposite.

A good variety of indian and Nepalese dishes, went for mostly veggie options all of which were different and full of flavour. We had a few of the side dishes with bread and a starter which makes it an incredibly cheap takeaway at £3.15 a dish and the portions of these were still large.

Can't claim to be a curry connoisseur - or even spell connoisseur - but this place has great food, good portions, nice atmos and super-friendly staff. It's also reasonable value - certainly for Londoners like us. Therefore highly recommended.

The old Chadni, this has been the Gurkha Kitchen for a couple of years. We used to rate the Chadni but had stopped going for some reason. We thought we'd try the GK for a work team outing. It was a great success. The ambience here isn't fabulous but the food was great. As well as most Indian favourites the... More

We have been very fortunate to eat here regularly since it changed ownership over a year ago. The staff are great and have a passion for their food and it's origins, in particular the region it comes from. There is a wealth of information on the tables in the takeaway section about the Himalayas and it's culture which enhances the... More

My partner and I have been lucky enough to travel in Nepal and were excited to try The Gurkha Kitchen to remember our amazing trip. The food was wonderful, ordering so many dishes we couldn't choose just one or two! From gently spiced creamy mango chicken, dhal, rotis and fenegreek and cumin mis mas to chilli and cardomom lamb, the... More

After hearing from someone about the Gurkha kitchen and how good it was I decided I better try. All I can say is it might be an extra 10 minute drive but well worth it. My new local. Great curry they cook to the way you like it. The service is want you want not to much and not to... More

After coming back from a holiday from Portugal with friends we were looking for somewhere to eat on the journey home. We looked on trip advisor for a restaurant off the M5.
