Needs some improvement

Our hotel suggested the Gurkha to us, by all means the food was ok but I wouldn't say it was out of this world. It was hot and well cooked but nothing exciting. The whole place could do with a revamp and lick of paint. But the actually setting of it is really nice, beautiful view. The service was... read more

Nice array of eastern food but a bit tasteless I think they are trying to do too much and losing the oriental taste,watch out for the cost of the drinks £4 for a pint of lager

In a lovely setting on a lake, this restaurant is buffet style with attentive and polite staff. On first sight there doesn't seem as much food on offer as in other buffet style restaurants, but we were proved quite wrong. There was plenty to choose from and for an extra £1.50 a really lovely choice of sweets. Drinks were also... More

Visited on our wedding anniversary with the kids....kids ha....they charge full price for children aged 8 and over. There was lots to choose from and it was regularly replenished but most of the main dishes were sauce and veg with very little of the main ingredient i.e meat/seafood. The staff were ok but not very enthusiastic...we were shown to a... More

On holiday in Weymouth at fancied a night out. Visited many Chinese and Indian restaurants, good service , excellent food but this was an exception and disappointment. Self service, one very young waiter and the food, a lamb curry, tough and almost inedible. Apart from what appeared to be a young rugby team (well behaved) the place was empty. Speaks... More

We have been on holiday in Weymouth this week and parked in the car park by The Gurkha twice. We saw the restaurant on both occasions and thought it looked lovely with the ideal location right on the water front. We decided to try it on our last night and we were not disappointed. Very friendly staff and had a... More
