Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent food and service. Don’t be put off by the shopfront and stairs. Good value for money. The Nepalese food was great.

Great choice of both Nepalese and Indian dishes. Very reasonable prices and serving sizes were generous. Nice atmosphere. Staff were attentive and polite. It is upstairs, so people with mobility problems may have difficulty accessing the restaurant. Would highly recommend if you are in Paignton...looking for an authentic meal.More

If you’re in Paignton you just have to try this restaurant. They cater for Indian and Nepalese cuisine using only the best ingredients making really tasty food. The Base camp curry I had was delicious with both Lamb and chicken tikka meat in it and...a heat of madras. The staff are all really nice and make you feel so welcome. We will definitely be back again. I highly recommend this restaurant. Well done Ghurkas Diner 5 stars !More

We had a large party of 16 for them to accommodate which they did very well. We all got the food we pre-ordered and the service was attentive but not overly so. I would say the dishes were too sauce heavy with little meat but...the flavours were good. Not spicy but flavoursome!More

I read the reviews and looked at travellers photos before I visited this restaurant and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. OK on first impressions the staircase leading to the restaurant is not very inviting and in desperate need of redecoration however my...daughter and I were welcomed by a lovely gentleman who was wearing a woolly hat as stated in other reviews. He was extremely pleasant. He showed us to a window table. Nice and warm by the heating. We ordered a Chicken tikka starter and onion bhajees then a chicken Biryani with madras sauce and a garlic nan and a side of bombay potatoes. All was superb. We had 2 bottles of water a coke and a glass of wine . Also poppadums and chutneys. I think our bill was around 42 pounds. Extremely good value for good food. Unfortunately we do not live in the UK otherwise we would definitely be visiting again. Looking forward to a visit again near Christmas. Definable worth a visit.More

Had ordered for delivery via the website. Food arrived earlier than expected which was great. The food was exceptional, absolutely outstanding. I had base camp curry and the missus had prawn pathia. Omg, it was literally heaven in my mouth. I've been using Gurkhas for...years now and they have never ever let me down. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting an amazing Nepalese cuisine whether it's delivery at home or eating in their restaurant. If you haven't tried them yet, make sure that you do when your are craving Indian food.More

Took my Indian boyfriend for dinner as I love their takeaway. He said it’s easily the best Indian food in Torbay. Everyone was really friendly and the chef came out to say hello too. We will definitely be back.
