this used to be a very good place to have a curry - nice and spacious area to eat and the menu was very good and a great tasting meal but, unfortunately, the menu was changed and not so good and the service is a lot to be desired. this is a shame as it could be a good restaurant if managed better and the owners listened to the reviews.

Ive been eating here for some years and have to keep coming back whenever I have the opportunity.
Curry is without doubt one of my favourite foods and this is one of my favourite places to eat it.
Plenty of room for large groups, and your also made to feel very welcome if eating on your own.
Great selection of dishes available and the fresh ingredients used can really be tasted.
I would recommend the Gurkha to anyone who like quality food.

Visited the restaurant for the first time with a group of friends. One older man served both at the bar and our meals making the service quite slow. During the meal one of our party found a long hairline piece of metal in her meal which she pulled from her mouth. When mentioned to the older man he took it from her hand and simply walked away! No apology, no replacement, just walked away (very odd). We assumed he would be addressing the matter at the end of the meal. The end came and he happily went around the table collecting payment. When we broached the issue again to him "Will there be a discount for the meal with the metal in it?" he replied "No.", "Not even an apology?" we asked. Looking out of sorts and put on the spot he says "oh of course....I apologies...........Ill buy you a drink next time".

Well Sir, there wont be a next time :I

What a fantastic restaurant! I went here as a lone business traveller and was made to feel so welcome by the manager. Lovely food, and plenty of it! Would definitely recommend.

When arriving we were asked if we had booked but there was only one table with people on it.The man who greated us was very rude and told us next time we came then we would have to book.When ordering our drinks the same man got the drinks wrong ! Then one of our beers tasted wrong and was given more rudeness by the man again saying that he had already served 4 pints and they were ok.
So we thought we would pay for our drinks and leave and we were told to leave straight away !
My friends had only came here for the weekend and thought we would try somewhere new.

So in the end we went to the Sernia instead a lot better and polite people and nice meal !

Would tell people to stay away from this place !!!!!
