NBY is full of restaurants, of any kind. But this is one of the 2 tops around. Great food, great service, budget prices. If they only serve some Ales, it would be the best of all. Don't miss it, especially if you like spicy food, fish and curry.

Refurbished restaurant (current photo is out of date) service a good range of napalese food. Properly hot if you want it but a good range for those who don't want the spice.

Gurkha has become a local institution. It's good food and significant different flavours compared to the myriad of Indian curry houses really sets it apart. Well worth taking the time to enjoy the options on the menu.

Visited Friday night (21/4) - 1st class experience from quality & quantity of food through to service and how good value for money everyone thought it was. Food was explained to us based on our previous Indian visits to give us a similar meal - everyone had starters which were excellent in taste accompanied by naan breads - main courses... More

We waited an hour - no food arrived . We decided to cancel. Starters and then the food appeared . No real apology . The food was tepid . Not enjoyable . Then they had the temerity to charge us for staters which we did not have . Will never go there again . Will definitely not recommend it.

I have been to this restaurant twice, once in it's old location and now next door where they have made it a very spacious and welcoming place to be. My companion has been visiting for ten years, whenever he is over from the US. Great service and flexibility on the menu. The dish I had was fresh and really tasty,... More

This remains our favourite place for a good curry but its popularity is growing which can mean on a weekend you might wait some time to be seated and for food. I would recommend booking and go with the expectation that you will not be seated immediately and wait at least 30 minutes between ordering and getting your food. If... More
