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.

The food was tasty and came in good helpings. There was nothing exceptional about the curries or rice. However it was a good standard and ready for collection when they said it would be and reasonably priced. They would have delivered it had we wanted.
