It looks like a simple cafe - which it is but the food was excellent. Staff attentive and helpful - very polite. Food was tasty, big portions and good flavours. Nice spot to eat.

First and probably the last time. Called up for a collection at 19:20 to be told at least 50 minutes. Went in to collect at 40 minutes still took over an hour and half. Food was nothing but average. Not a great experience

This is a very busy restaurant. The staff are mostly English but they all bend over backwards to ensure everything is 1st class. It has been refurbished in the last 18 months ,which has improved it. The food is always excellant

The Nepalese are famed for their courteous hospitality - this place is no exception. From the moment we walked in the welcome and service were second to none. We ordered momos to start which were delicious and very authentic. We then had the lamb jalfrezi...More

We had a takeaway, which may be different from a restaurant experience. As being the only curry house in town, you are bound over to order from here. My partner wanted the 'sag paneer', which is described as "fried pieces of cottage cheese". Upon questioning...More

So disappointing as the Taste of Gurkhas Honiton has been our favourite Indian for the last couple of years, but lately food quality has been getting suspect but yesterday evening our takeaway was disgusting, Garlic Chilli Chicken, it was cold, not even warm, large chunks...More
