The Gurkha is an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant, whilst it is unlikely that you'll leave hungry the quality is not the best. The service is good and the staff are friendly, and the food is reasonably priced. In the window there is an extensive menu however not all dishes are on offer. Providing you like Indian/Chinese food you'll find something to... More

This is a very well run establishment. The food I had was lovely, it is a running help yourself buffet, and very good value for money. Very pleasant helpful staff. What was a treat was that you can see into the kitchen and watch the chefs beavering away over the stoves! The whole place was clean and tidy, we were... More

We visited here on our short break to Ilfracombe. As it was an out of season weekday night we knew the range of dishes wouldn't be vast but we enjoyed what they had on offer. The waitress was excellent and even arranged a small dish of my husband's favourite Nepalese snack to be made. An enjoyable evening.

Visited this 'restaurant' while on holiday. Was hoping for a decent buffet with some authentic Indian food, as that's what we fancied the most and the reviews for Indian restaurants nearby weren't great, not to mention the fact one of the cuisines listed on its TA profile is Indian. Well, what can I say? The curries were disgusting. The chicken... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit, certainly at lunchtime anyway. We haven't been there in the evening. Sadly, it only opens for the lunch buffet on weekends. It opens 12-2pm. They do an evening buffet with different and hotter dishes for about £12.. We have been there three times and the food was great. There was a wide range... More

Go to the Gurkha a few times a year but have been a couple of times in the last month or so for family meals. Staff are very friendly and the food is definitely filling. There were children with us who we felt were catered too well. A couple of the chicken dishes were a little bit of a let... More
