Excellent. Best Restaurant in Barnstaple.

Me and my friends went to some restaurants in our 4 days trip to Devon. This one was the best of all. Food was excellent, staffs were friendly, wonderful environment. Had a great time. Will surely visit again when we will be in Devon next time. Highly Recommended to all.

Having read the previous reviews, we booked a table here while out in Devon on a camping trip. The service was excellent but unfortunately the meal did not live up to expectations. We ordered chicken Dhansak, chicken madras, sag aloo, brinjal Baji, veg rice and a plain nan. Unfortunately the veg rice was full of raw vegetables and the 2... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. However, I didn't like the taste of food. No where close to the Nepali or Indian food I had in past.

22 hungry golfers descended on this restaurant on a wet Sunday night in Barnstaple, and The Gurkha delivered us a very good meal which was appreciated by all who attended. The staff were kind and attentive to all our requirements, and it really was service with a smile. The food was good quality, and the range range of dishes provided... More

I booked this on a Sunday night for 23 golfers on a one night trip to Saunton Sands. What a great place, called me in advance and we organised the starters and stayed open later to accommodate our schedule. Food was great and very friendly. Would thoroughly recommend coming here again. Menu had plenty of choice, though we probably didn't... More

We love the Gurkha, and yet again we had a fantastic meal here. There were three of us who all had something different. The Sherpa King Prawn was amazing, as was the King Prawn Dhansak, and the Chicken Chilli dish. The Vegetable rice was outstanding with lovely fresh pieces of nicely cooked veg in it. Tarka dal and garlic nan... More
