This was an OK place but it's trying to do too much and the standards are slipping it was also difficult at time to navigate the buffet set up as space was at a minimum although the restaurant itself is quite big. This was a midweek visit and I was pleased to see that there was an extensive range on... More

Have eaten at other restaurants that serve multiple choices for a set price before, but in comparison I thought this one was fairly expensive for the standard of the food. My daughter and grandson enjoyed it, and have eaten there on other occasions, and as I was treating them to a night out it was their choice. It is very... More

We read the reviews and thought, could it be that bad. The location is great, the staff were friendly, the food was lacking. As it was a weekday, I'd expect a smaller range. What was there had been there for a while, quite dry. Taste was fine it had just been sat in the warming pans too long. Also, there... More

Begrudgingly paid our £40 bill for a family of 4. Dreadful food, all cold and horrible. Could not find one thing that was ....nice! Not fussy eaters and down to earth family but will never return. Sorry!

Buffet style serve yourself. Can eat as much as you like , but will give this a miss . £12 for evening but food dry not kept topped up, drinks on the expensive side . Save your money or go somewhere else.

The service at the Gurkha is very friendly and efficient. There's a wide variety of dishes, and lots of them are suitable for vegetarians! The food is very filling but you can stay all evening and keep going back for more!

Had dinner here last night. Loved the selection but drinks were disappointing as tiny cups for hot drinks

Always a brilliant selection of Chinese and Indian dishes. They cater for all tastes. Always our favourite destination for a night out with friends and an all you can eat buffet. Very reasonable and with friendly staff - what's not to like.

Just had lunch here and selection was poor and not kept full, every time I went up the food was gone and it took over 10 mins to replenish. All their was for kids was chips and guess what?? Empty! Food that was there was Luke warm, toilets are a disgrace! Was not worth the money and feel very disappointed.
