I have had Indian food in quite a few places from the massive buffets in Bristol (ZaZa Bazaar) to some of the smaller restaurants in both Bristol and Dorchester. I live locally to Dorchester but spend a good chunk of my time in Bristol so I get a decent try of the food on offer in both places, and I believe that New Gurkha is better than any other place I have ever had Indian food in.

Like others, the food here is fantastic, well seasoned and just generally yummy. I honestly believe this is a real find and just shows how bright the future is for Dorchester in terms of food and shops. New Gurkha is a real gem and I will come back again and again.

6 of us booked for fathers day for the buffet and were pleasantly surprised. Do not be put by the shabby exterior. First of all the staff are extremely polite and attentive. The buffet had a commendable variety without being excessive. All the dishes and sundries were all freshly prepared with the quality exceptional. The naan bread was unquestionably this best I have ever tasted. Fantastic!

The New Gurkha is simply a fantastic place to eat. The food is delicious and the staff incredibly helpful. 90 year 1 children from Damers First School agree. Having written stories about Nepal in our literacy lessons, we tentatively asked if we could bring our children along to sample some real Nepalese food. The restaurant said yes... and it turned out to be the best school trip of the year. The children absolutely loved the food (almost as much as the teachers!) As I type this I am awaiting the arrival of a New Gurkha takeaway...mmmm...

Me and my wife stayed the night in Dorchester and visited here because of the great reviews and also because we have both traveled around India a lot..
Fantastic service from the head waiter even though we were the only people in there on a quiet Tuesday night, very authentic and freshly cooked Indian food cooked however you like it.
Really can't wait to go back!
Easily the best Indian food we have tasted in the UK!!
TRY IT :-)

I have visited The New Ghurkha a number of times now and have been impressed with the consistency and quality of both service and food. There staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble.The buffet is more a quality over quantity affair, although you will never be short of food as the dishes are refilled promptly, and not over-filled to ensure freshness. The authentic starters are most enjoyable, although there is one strange anomaly: chicken nuggets! Get rid of those and replace with the typical quality reflected in the rest of the dishes on offer. Further to the starters are the intermediate dishes such as Dahl and Bombay potatoes. A good selection of mains are available, in varying heats and flavours. To complement these offerings further are a delicious selection of naans.

Look forward to returning again!
