Waiters and service good, draught lager good, decor pleasant. Only bad thing was the food which was tasteless and claggy. Hope they can send chef on training course or get a new one; the problem here is that the chef may own the restaurant, in which case nothing will change. Can't really recommend going in here unless you have to.

By far the worst service I have ever experienced. Waited 2.5hrs for a deliver, which never came. Phones were engaged for 1.5hrs. I drove to the restaurant and was told they hadn't started to even cook the curry and it would be another 40mins. Then openly admitted to turning the phones off! This is not the first time this has... More

We had a takeaway from here last week when visiting friends nearby and it was very poor. The Tikka Massala just tasted like a tube of tomato paste mixed with a bit of cream (even our children thought it was awful!), the Karai chicken had very little flavour of anything and was bulked out with onions and not much chicken....

I think I'm probably qualified to give an accurate review on The Gurkha, having now been there four times in the past 3 months, with another visit planned for Christmas Day. I really REALLY like this restaurant. They don't cram you in like some other local Indian restaurants, and they don't seat you by the door like some others, to... More

I was pleasantly surprised of the food quality and a good service. It was a new experience for me and I really enjoy it . Everything we ordered was delicious. If am back in the town definitely will be my choice for lunch or dinner.

Favourite local Indian restaurant which I've even going with my family to for years and we have come to expect the high quality food and good service we receive every time we go there!

Very local to us, we often pass by and look in, but it is never very full. On the evening we visited I was glad to see the restaurant filling up. The staff were courteous but not very engaging though... I always love the Momo, little dumplings, and they were as good as ever. However, the main course left a... More
