Gorgeous food and friendly service

The food was amazing. I had a chicken dish and my boyfriend a pork dish. We had a bottle of wine and 2 starters and 2 mains with lovely dips and poppadoms to start and all for £22 a head. I cannot recommend it highly enough : )))

I use the Gurkhas very often on a Friday to relax after a hectic week and it never fails to disappoint. It has a very loyal following among those who seek a little more than just a "good restaurant". There are some places in Bexhill in which I will not eat (I speak as one who has had his own... More

This restaurant is so unassuming that it would be easy to walk past it. Inside you are welcomed by a polite, friendly staff in a spotless dining area, that makes you feel at home instantly. The food is presented in a stylish way, my wife and I were both intrigued with the three division plate the chutney and sauces were... More

Doesn't look like much but definitely worth a visit, with pleasant service and delicious fresh tasting food. The MoMo dumplings were especially good, as was the dhal - delicate flavours giving (in our opinion) a mix of North Indian and Thai. It's worth booking a table as its small and gets busy particularly on weekend evenings. Price was extremely reasonable... More

We visited the restaurant as an alternative to Sawasdee Thai, as they were fully booked. It was a recommendation from our landlady, but we were a bit disappointed really. The staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful,. but their front of house efforts were let down by the chef(s). I went for a prawn dish which just tasted like raw... More

Nothing special, sauces a bit gloopy and not so flavourful, a bit sweet. Mixed bean dal clearly used tinned mixed beans.

Came here with the rest of my team from work. Great service and would definitely recommend. Waiters very polite and attentive and also knew the menu well to describe the dishes on offer. I told them what I was wanting (hot!) and that's what I got! I have never been here before but I would definitely go again even though... More

Relaxed atmosphere with good food freshly cooked. The white wine is always cold as I am fussy about wine and the dry white is dry. The food is cooked to a high standard as they never over book and actually turn people away rather than jeopardize the quality of the food. Excellent service.
