Pretty average overall

We thought we would give this a try as liked the idea of many dishes we may not have tasted before on a buffet basis so we could try a little and have more if we liked. The choices were not huge but all pretty tasty but nothing there that was a 'wow'! some dishes were piping hot and others... read more

As a regular visitor to Weymouth the Gurkha is quite noticeable, a faux boat on a lake. Serves pan Asian food, all sounds good doesnt it. Well yes and no. We have eaten several times at the Gurkha and it ranges from average to terrible. Terrible being cold limited food and draught lager served from a plastic bottle and it... More

I visited, I was appalled by everything, inside and out. it's has a nasty stench outside the restaurant and the food Is below average. Waste your money if you want, but take my advice. It's like day light robbery.

DO NOT EAT HERE!! I don't even want to give The Gurkha a rating as it was absolutely POOR on my visit. First of all, before you walk into the place it has a stench and the lake which overlooks the restaurant is dirty, full of rubbish. Once inside there was a very limited selection of foods, it's states Thai,... More

If you don't want to be ill, DO NOT EAT HERE. I came here with my family whilst on holiday and we left without paying after we found our chicken only half cooked. It was totally pink (RAW) in the middle. But what I did try before discovering the raw chicken was extremely tasteless, cold and quite honestly disgusting. Even... More

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 quick... 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
