Whilst camping nearby we wanted to have a special meal out and this places seemed a good bet. We certainly were not disappointed. Dawlish isn't exactly a huge place, but this was a real gem and the best meal we had in the area all week.
The restaurant is clean and comfortable with a knowledgeable and attentive staff.
We started with Lamb Momo, a dish I'd never tried before and really enjoyed. I can only liken them to a chinese steamed dumpling, but with the unmistakable spiced flavours of Nepalese cuisine and a tasty dipping sauce. I followed this with the Everest Lamb which, whilst fiery, packed a huge amount of flavour.
All in all a very good restaurant serving a good variety of both Anglicized and authentic dishes. A good choice to ensure everyone is pleased and affordable prices.

We picked up a very decent takeaway from Gurkha whilst renting a cottage approx. 5 miles from Dawlish based on Trip Advisor reviews. Good quality and hot at a reasonable price.

As a Korma expert I can say that the way the Gurkha make their chicken version is pretty much the best - not a hint of artificial colouring, and a delicate, creamy, coconutty, lovely tasting sauce. Service is just right, not intrusive but always making sure the customers are happy. Have been before and will go again - my fellow diners were very pleased with their meals too.

This is an experience that takes your taste buds to another level. A variety of Nepalese`dishes are available that cater for the adventurous ''heat'' seekers and for those who seek a milder experience.The starters are presented in such exquisite style that each individual dish is a work of art that makes your mouth water before even the fork goes into it.
This is a family run restaurant that is full of pride.and makes every customer welcome and treats them as if they were a family member. The whole experience is pressure free from start to finish. Excellent. A relaxed evening Thank you!
