I have, on two occasions, ordered a take away from the Gurkha restaurant. We have enjoyed the experience very much. The food is well presented and there is a lot of it. The menu had a lot of choice and you will certainly find something...More

One day visit and hotelier recommended the Gurkha. The mixed grill was excellent and my friends vegetarian curry was very good. Managed to polish off a little of that too. The Gurkha beer, a new one to me, was very good and topped off a...More

We had a takeaway and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The staff were more than delightful. The Yak rolls were really nice and the garlic rice was a treat. The food was not particularly spicy although it was full of flavour. Highly recommended.

Had 3 nights in Dawlish ..and eat here twice. Both nights was good...ambience, food, service and price were all good. When I am eating in an Indian restaurant I like to hear traditional Indian music in the back ground..this was absent.

Well, it's the only place offering Indian-style food in Dawlish so therefore it is the best. But I was underwhelmed by our visit last week. The menu is promising, with a good range of dishes including some Nepalese dishes. The food however was quite bland...More

Haven't been to this restaurant for at least 5 years. Upon returning we were left disappointed with the food quality. What used to be an excellent place to eat will now become one to avoid for us.
