Sadly the lamb was not available so it was just chicken, prawn or veg for the main. Small menu although what we had was very good. Service good although we had to ask for wine to be topped up on a couple of occasions. Staff pleasant and knowledgeable about the food. A very different Indian experience in decadent surroundings. Good... More

The restaurant certainly felt special. With only a few tables immaculately set up it had an exclusive feel. The meal was tasty with well presented dishes. The service was quite slow but pleasant.

Firstly the service was good and the waiter excellent, this review no reflection on him. Food was shocking, terrible in fact.We have eaten Indian food all over the world, I am afraid this was amongst the worst. Dhal soup tasteless, chicken cashew curry tasteless and fatty, fish curry plenty of spices, but not blended well. Dessert was fine and lobster... More

Curries based on South African chef's adaption of traditional Indian curries in a sumptuous environment. A small restaurant with just 5 or 6 tables. Expensive but excellent for a special evening.

I love indian food so decided to book the Curry Room at Old Government House where I was staying. I had the curried crab as a starter and the lamb curry (medium hot) for second course and it was one of the best I have eaten - as good as the Cinnamon Club in Victoria, London. Superb cooking.

Interesting menu and not like any normal UK Indian restaurant. Great use of local seafood like crab and lobster - giving a great twist to traditional Indian dishes

Me and my partner went to the Curry Room at the OGH in Guernsey for a romantic dinner - nice ambience and good location. The problem was we were the only diners there and even then the service sucked. The menu was fixed and limited and could be better for the price it was charged. We had to wait between... More

We were treated to a wonderful dinner of exquisite, delicate and different flavours from the popadums to th desserts. The staff were helpful and friendly but not over-attentive. Well worth a visit for a special dinner.

Set in a beautiful private dining room within the hotel and exclusively for our party of 9. Our private waiter was so attentive and knew the food and wine menu inside and out. Most of us enjoyed the taster plate for starters, and for mains we all all shared a little of each other's. The taste was so fresh and... More

we tried to eat here on a Saturday night in May. we were the only people in the restaurant. the menu showed one vegetarian starter (soup) and one main course (curry with red peppers). I asked whether there was any way of adapting any other dishes to make them vegetarian and the waiter pointed to the menu and said "this... More
