This was our first visit to The Gurkhas and we were met with a very nice welcome. We have had Nepalase food before so a lot of the menu was familiar. Our starters, prawns & lamb dumplings were nice, good sauce with the dumplings. However our mains, a lamb dish and chicken dish, were just bland. Each dish was supposed... More

The owner has an incredible memory and can remember my favourite dishes even after I had been out of the country for two years he knew good start in my books. The lamb is simply the tastiest I have had in any restaurant. The fresh herbs and... More

I have been using the Gurkhas once a week for the past few years and have never been disappointed. I largely have the same lamb dish each time and it has always been excellent. You can be assured of a baby-free environment, as it is predominantly a restuarant for older well-behaved young people and adults, which creates a restful ambiance.... More

House sitting for our friends and their lurcher we decided this place was a 'must do', during our stay. Just a look at the menu - fantastic. Thank you so much for a wonderful, tasty and memorable meal. We loved it.

The Gurkhas in Bexhill is only small, but they make you feel very welcome. We don't go that often, only birthdays and anniversaries usually, but they always know us. They are very friendly guys, and the food is wonderful. They ask you how you like it and will make little changes for you if needed.

I had been to the Gurkhas a long time ago and had always meant to return, but parking had always put me off. Our visit was on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was quite busy upstairs. We were seated downstairs quite comfortably. Service was steady, but not slow. Since there was only one man serving as well as helping... More

Being a fan of Indian food and often walking past The Gurkhas i decided to take some family to this for a meal. The restaurant is deceptively big with downstairs seating as well as upstairs. We sat upstairs where it was very snug but comfortable, and the restaurant is very quiet and peaceful even when it was fully booked, which... More

This was our second visit to the Gurkha's. The first visit being good enough to make us want to return. Sadly this visit was not as good. We booked an early table for a pre show meal, so were amongst the first customers of the evening. We ordered a lamb dish and a chicken dish with a vegetable side, a... More

I was the other person along with Alexandra S (see her opinion) who went to the restaurant one we had frequented quite a bit when we both lived in Bexhill. On our weekend together back in Bexhill top of our list was to have a Thali at our favourite restaurant. Well what a reception. I hope other ENGLISH people which... More
