“Excellent staff, service and most importantly the food!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

As it was our first experience of Weymouth, we were very unsure of where to go each night. Somebody who was staying in our hotel recommended The Gurkha saying it was amazing. We went having high hopes and it ticked every box, the staff were so polite and friendly, and the food was ever so tasty. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!! :)

“A Hearty Nepalese Welcome”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

As a former serviceman I was pleased to see the Gurkhas exhibiting the same conscientious approach and commitment to excellence in the kitchen as they are renowned for in the battlefield. The food is very tasty and plentiful and the buffet is excellent value for money. However it is the friendly and cheerful attitude of the staff that really makes it stand out. A wide choice of Asian foods to choose from washed down with a fine bottle of Gurkha beer- smashing. We were fortunate enough to go on a Monday night so had the town's firework display thrown into the mix- great stuff. Many thanks and 'namaste' to the Gurkha restaurant!!

Best buffet oriental food in Weymouth! Ranging from thai to nepalese! With great views of the harbour and great service! Five stars must try.

“Got to love the Gurkha”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

My fishing crew always enjoy an evening at the Gurkha. The beer is cold and the food is plentiful and tasty. What more could you possibly want?

“Not recommended”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Oh dear - well this little restaurant sat on the water with very friendly service, seems to have lost it's way! There were Chinese lanterns on the ceiling, Italian type music, lots of Chinese food and a few curries. This not really a problem except that the food was very poor, particularly their curries which I thought would be their strong point! However, the Friday night we went it was eat as much as you want and with 2 alcohol drinks cost us £30. Unfortunately, because the food was not good we didn't make the most of this but there were plenty there who did!
