Waited over an hour for mains. Were being treated by friends who were paying. During the hour wait, "Have you forgotten us, etc, several times", went to the loo upstairs where a drunk customer collapsed comatose outside the toilet as I left. Told staff, and that 4 of us were still hungry, an hour has passed since our popadoms, waiter... More

Extensive menu, some thing for everyone, I had the Everest Lamb which was not disappointing with the lemon rice and a side of Chana masala, the staff made us feel welcome and the service was prompt, not a bad place for a seaside town.

Our third visit to this excellent Nepalese restaurant in Dawlish. The chicken dopiaza, lamb dhansak and lamb biryani were all first class, as were the veg side dishes and naans. Special mention for the biryani, which was big enough for two - worth remembering if you're sharing dishes and usually struggle to finish everything on the table. Really can't fault... More

Went on a Wednesday which happens to be banquet night and had a fantastic meal. Gurkhani chicken and Rogan Josh for mains were definitely up there with some of the tastiest I've ever had. Perfect attentiveness of service and we will definitely be returning when we come back in August.

We visited this Indian-Gurkha restaurant after reading the reviews , but have to say we left a little disappointed .The chicken tikka starters were very good but the mains of chicken bhuna & korma were not the best and also the side dishes, the restaurant lacks those little extra touches and presentation that you get in a lot of top...

We have been to the restaurant with friends, with family, and on our own. We have also ordered takeaway on numerous occasions. And every time we have been very pleased with the quality, taste, value for money and friendliness of every single member of staff.
