“A touch of Bangladesh a long way from home”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Sunday evening in a curry house can be a fairly desultry affair - not so Nellie Grays. There was some life about the place and the food was definitely up to scratch - if slightly limited by its location on a not very well connected island off the coast of France. When asked about the lack of bhindi/okra/ladies fingers (call them what you will) the restauranteur's response was very worthy and principled - 'we can't get them fresh and we won't do them from a tin'. He then went on to explain his approach to creating good food from good ingredients. It has stood him in good stead as he has built his business since arriving in Alderney in 1996 (if my memory serves me right)
Good food - and Cobra beer - chappatis served though not on the menu - I am fairly sure the tandoori mixed grill hadn't come immediatley from a tandoor but it was tasty and tender however they actually cooked it on the night. The pistacio kulfi was also a fairly good imitation of the real thing.
Service was impeccable - friendly, personable and prompt without being rushed. Being on Alderney you would go a long way to do better if you fancy an Indian - and many towns in mainland UK would be the better for a Nellia Gray's.

“Stag Weekend”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had a table for 7 and even though the restaurant was fairly full (it was Friday night) the staff were able to serve us very quickly. The quality of the food was of a good standard and the final bill contained no nasty surprises. Recommended.

“One step further ...”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We enjoyed a superb meal at Nellie Gray's on Sunday evening. The restaurant was very busy, atmosphere and food fantastic. Very friendly, accommodating staff, well presented food and they even made up a special meal for one of our party who is unfamiliar with Indian cuisine (although he did sample Chicken Biriyani for the first time and enjoyed it!). Thank you for an enjoyable evening. We will visit again when we return to Alderney.
