The restaurant is upstairs and was a welcome surprise when we walked in - warm and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. We, as ever, ordered too much and they immediately offered us takeaway boxes for the left-overs. We...More

We visited Gurkhas Diner early on a Saturday evening. It doesn't look much from the outside, but once in the upstairs restaurant it is nice enough. We ordered starters, mains and sundries and stuck to the Nepalese parts of the menus rather than the more...More

We have always had excellent meals in Nepalese restaurants and always enjoy trying new ones - until we came here. This was our first visit and,though the decor was dated, the staff were attentive but we had to suffer that dreadful music that is supposed...More

Not the most attractive looking place from the outside (The restaurant is upstairs) but well worth a visit. Quite a small place (we went mid weak so it was nice and quiet) first rate food and fantastic service. A real hidden gem!

I visited here on my own, which can sometimes be uncomfortable, but not here. I was made very welcome. The food was delicious and plentiful and the service was good. Not the cheapest restaurant on the planet, but not more than I would expect to...More

The diner itself is ok inside, nothing special really. The food is very pricey once you add all the extras, rice, naan breads etc. Have eaten in many restaurants serving the same kinds of food at much lower prices so this restaurant was a bit...More

We are not just an ordinary Nepalese or Indian restaurant. Founded in 2004 as a take-away in Market Street, Torquay, we were the very first Nepalese Cuisine Speacialist in the whole of Torbay or Devon. We have grown from a single small takeaway to a big licensed restaurant. We serve stylish, high quality, great value Nepalese and Indian Cuisine, as well as outstanding quality food, responsibly sourced from around 7 suppliers nationally. Since the closure of our takeaway in market street, I've seen number of so called Nepalese Restaurant opened around the bay but we can guarantee you none of them is traditional nepalese like ours. We are a family run business where my dad is the headchef, my uncle is the second chef, my mum is the customer host and im the waiter/manager. Now thats a proper family business. We look forward to seeing you and serving you mouth watering momo (my personal fav).
