“Best curry outside of India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We had a take-away while on holiday in Falmouth. I had two small veggie dishes which were fantastic - really tasty rather than hot. My partner had a lamb dish which she said was also delicious. Honestly, best curry i've had outside of a holiday in Goa.

“Great food, service and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Had a wonderful meal here with members of my family. Very attentive and friendly staff, superb food and great atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Will definitely eat here again next time I'm in Falmouth.

“Best curry house in Falmouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

When it comes to food I feel the Gurkha is the best curry house in Falmouth, though the Asha restaurant across the street is not far behind. The portion sizes can be very large, which people may like although for people with a smaller appetite it may be better to share dishes. The restaurant stocks an excellent selection of bottled beers and wines to compliment meals too. Gurkha is perfect for a group of friends but due to its layout I don't feel it's as intimate as it should be for a couple. The tables are very close and it's quite brightly lit, but this is because I believe the primary element at Gurkha is the food experience, not the social.

The restaurant also offers a 15% discount on collections which is an offer worth taking advantage of.
