Having read previous reviews and having some expectation of what would be on offer , the reality at Gurkha Restaurant in Lydney whilst very pleasant was a little disappointing. The dishes on offer were predominantly just your standard Indian offering and very little Gurkha specialities. The dishes we ordered were well cooked and nicely presented and ultimately tasted really good. The waiting staff were somewhat attentive but for a very quiet Thursday night with only 5/6 tables occupied, it did take some time to be acknowledged at reception and when seated, it took a while to get our drinks order. As this restaurant is in a 70's style pub, it did lack atmosphere with very rigidly placed tables in one main room with a few tables in a raised area. The open kitchen was good to see the food being prepared but general decoration was quite dated and could do with a bit of an overhaul Overall a very pleasant meal but to live up to its name, more Gurkha specialities would have improved our dining experience.

all the dishes our party tried all seemed the same. could of all been Buhnas or madras. Just another crry but cooked by a real gurkha . The staff are very pleasant though, wish for their sakes that their menu was more interesting.

What a mistake,
had to wait for over an hour for our food,
it was cold and not worth the wait.
No taste, expensive and the service was poor.

Food tasted worse than a cheap supermarket microwave meal.

Save your money and buy a Tesco curry bag.

I thought the meal I had the Gurkha was nice but a bit over priced for what it was. I will probably eat here again and give it another chance to wow me.
