Immediately, we were guided to a lovely table. The bottle of wine we ordered was on the table in no time (and on ice!). The smell... read more

Three adults sat down. Really enjoyed the choice, price, quantity available and service. You get what you pay for, and at the price this is great.

Just had lunch The Gurkha. The bad reviews further down on here are very true I should have listened! The restaurant is very grimy, tablecloths wet dirty plastic and cutlery could do with chucking really! Starters- satay chicken has been bought in and the sick looking peanut sauce has been made here but I wished they had bought that in... More

The range of mains food was good. No ice cream and deserts served by waiter. Now for the negative the vinyl tablecloth was very very grubby under the top paper one. The wooden floor was filthy. Despite this we were not ill thankfully. I would eat there again but some of our party would not.

Visited this restaurant again on Saturday evening and despite there being 14 of us in the group they easily accommodated us without booking. The restaurant was quite busy and lots of birthday celebration around tables. Great selection of Chinese/Indian/Nepali cuisine. Everyone could chose foods that they preferred. 12 pounds per person which is very good price too. On the top... More
