disappointing as service was so slow, No welcome on arrival, drinks slow to arrive , starters took 1 hour to arrive and when they did only 3 out of 6, the others went to the wrong table. After the other table noticed they only tried to bring them to us after the people had started them. We then had to... More

Service friendly and professional in dealing with the endless delays, but that was cold comfort. Really really unacceptable delays, some of the food was very nice, some of it was tough as old boots. Found a hair in my food. Sad because we used to love coming here, but there you go. Won't be going back.

I'm a bit of a fussy eater so wasn't really keen on going but after browsing the menu I realise this is very similar to Indian restaurant food. The food itself was absolutely delicious. The service was brilliant and the waiters got the orders right despite there being 14 of us. Very accommodating as I wanted to bring a birthday... More

I have to confess I struggle to differentiate between this and a normal curry restaurant, but I do appreciate the variety they throw in. The atmosphere and service could have been better, but there's a certain charm to the size of the place and the relative informality of the setting.

Nothing to dislike about the restaurant at all, there was a very good choice on the menu. It was gorgeous food and great friendly service and all at a very reasonable price :-)

What can I say when your 13 other friends are eating away whilst all you have been given is naan! Around the point where my friends had finished eating i had finally received my order, however by this time, my naan had become cold... I thought that hopefully the quality of the food would make up for this pathetic service,... More

The Gurkha makes tremendous curries - the best I've had in Tunbridge Wells and they are consistently good. Well done!
