“Birthday bash.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Have had many excellent take aways' from the Gurkha, but this was the first time I had sat in. Service was excellent, the staff were very friendly and efficient, attentive but not intrusive or pushy. The food was fabulous. It was hot, fresh and very, very tasty. There were 3 of us with birthdays (the reason for our visit) and we were all treated to birthday cake and flowers. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Indian Cuisine at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

What a pleasant suprise, the food was fabulous, what a treat to have an indian restaurant with such high standard of food, not the same food that you get it the majority of indian restaurants, Because it was a Nepalese that made the differnce, excellent service and very friendly with a lovely atmospher, you must try, ime sure you wont be disappointed.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Took a trip from Exeter and well worth it. We both had Nepalese dishes but they also do Indian favourites. Very friendly service, extremely tasty food at a reasonable price. Will be back.

“Christmas day excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Did not want to eat yet another boring Turkey Christmas lunch, so when my daughter said she had booked a table at the Gurkha Restaurant in Dawlish for Xmas Day lunch I was more than pleased.
The service was excellent, the food excellent and when Mr A,the owner and his wfe Indira said they had only accepted our booking beacause we were bringing 3 grand-chlidren with us made it all more worthwhile.
Thjey made us feel very welcome and I felt they were genuinely happy to be serving us.
We had previously only had 2 take-aways from there but will definately be eating there many more times

“fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

we went here for the first time with our family for ur 25th wedding anniversary last year, it was amazing the staff were friendly and the food was exceptional, they made us garlands of real flowers for our anniversary and when we left our umbrella they came after us to give it to us
I think those adventurous enough to take their reccommendations are rewarded the most it is after all nepalese not an average English indian, dont have a korma!!
i took my sister last week and she loved it and she is well travelled
My Goat was out of this world, we have visited as much as we can afford and will be there again to celebrate our 26th
