The Curry Room is an intimate and relaxing restaurant offering excellent varied and unusual Indian menu which is superbly cooked and presented. Felt like we were back in the days of the Raj.

We ate here as a group of 4 on a Friday evening. The service was very attentive on arrival and the dishes were all explained to us as being of medium spice. We were told that any of the dishes could be made more or less spicy to suit our pallets and one of our party said that they did... More

Just been to the Curry Room at the Old Government house Hotel. Probably the most expensive curry I have ever had but really good value for money. £55 per person including wines for each of 3 courses. Just superb.

I've been to the Curry Room a number of times before and always had fantastic food and service. However, when I visited recently the menu seemed to have been stripped back to more basic ingredients. The presentation had gone down as well and overall the taste was bland. We also had a corked wine and the tap water was undrinkable... More

We spent a week at The Old Government House Hotel in Guernsey. My husband was particularly looking forward to a meal (or two) in The Curry Room. Firstly the restaurant itself is lovely - intimate, nicely decorated with attentive staff and a welcoming atmosphere. Unfortunately the dining experience was a huge let down! The starter was satisfactory only. The main... More

As we were residents we chose Sunday to eat at the Curry Club as Guernsey seems to close down on Sundays. So looking forward to the meal but disappointed as it was bland for both of us. Our waitress Andra was superb and got extra chutneys to see if it would help. The curries are cooked South African style and... More

This was the first time of trying The Curry Room and we had very high expectations. Starter nice, my main course was a lamb curry which was no more than a very bland stew, wifes chicken dish was made with brown meat and again bland. I must say the waiter was fantastic though.
