Am slightly biased, but have been going here for a number of years and the food is always top quality and the staff very friendly and enjoy a good conversation. I won't go on but it is a hit with us!

We went here because we couldn't get a table at the curry house we normally go to. The food was well cooked and presented. The staff were very good, but a little overworked. Very different from an Indian menu.

I have never eaten in the restaurant but often get takeaway. It's ready quickly and the restaurant is always spotless & staff friendly and welcoming. The food is marvellous - bread & rice steaming hot and fresh, curries have the right ratio of meat / veg to sauce and are rich but not greasy.

If like me you don't like spicy food you will be very happy eating here as most of the dishes are flavourful but not too hot. There is a very good variety of vegetarian dishes, more than most takeaways for sure, but veggie or not you must, MUST have the aubergine curry which being a side dish is smaller (and therefore cheaper) than a main, but enough on its own for someone who isn't a big eater as the main dishes are very generous.

It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday so they don't usually do takeaways on those nights and it's best to book a table if you want to eat in.

The service was exceptional, the food was very good. This is an easy recommendation to make because the food, the service and the bill made it a great evening.

Let's face it - who wants babies and toddlers in good restaurants where people go to relax and enjoy the convivial ambience of a good dining venue? It is no surprise then that the only negative comments you will find about The Gurkhas, are from those who wanted to take very small children into the restaurant and were refused. The proprietor is keen to safeguard the tranquility of his restaurant from the noise that babies and young children can emit on a prolonged basis and without warning. I have nothing against toddlers and babies, it's just like so many other adults enjoying a relaxing night out I would rather choose a restaurant with a no infants policy.
This is still Bexhill's 'best', and, having eaten at some of the 'opposition' I cannot understand why it is not yet holding the number 1 spot - but it will: it's creeping up on the 'competition because more diners are recording their positive experiences.
