“Lovely wedding anniversary dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Just returned from an excellent meal at Gurkha Brothers for our wedding anniversary. We have never tried Nepalese food before and had heard good things about this restaurant. The food was lovely, the service attentive just a shame we were the only customers on a Monday night. Still we did feel like we were VIPs having the place to ourselves. My husband and I are so pleased to discover an excellent restaurant in Chatham. Will definitely be returning.

“"nul points"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

Having eaten at this restaurant on a previous occasion and enjoyed it when a leaflet was dropped through the door offering Home Delivery it appeared a chance not to be missed – how wrong I was.

A phone call was made the food ordered from the menu given within the leaflet and the criteria for ‘free’ home delivery was fully met – then it all went wrong.

We were then requested if we could collect – this was politely declined. We were then informed that this delivery would take at least one hour – which was agreed (as said eaten here before and whilst not excellent it was good and we thought the wait would be worth it).

The member of staff on the phone then had a conversation with the ‘Manager’ and we were informed that the delivery was not possible – they were too busy...!

What is the point of offering a service, making a leaflet drop and going through the rigmarole of the above – then refusing to ‘honour’ the ‘agreement’?

Needless to say we were very disappointed in the overall poor way this was situation was handled and will not be supporting this local restaurant in future.

“A little upset with the reviews.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

great service,
great layout-ie they have not decided to pack the floor with tables.
but this place can't be the best Indian in Chatham. Or if it is please go to gravesend or better still east London. Don't get me wrong the food was good but not as the reviews suggest. Ps I have had real nepalese food- no offence but I think you will find it difficult to separate the food from a standard balti house. Tastes have evolved and this was excellence 10 years ago

“satori is gluttony”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

We were working on an away job and Nepalese was suggested, I found the Gurkhas Brother while wandering about and the menu looked good so we tried it.
One of the best meals I have ever had.
Good service, very polite, and reasonable prices (just under a ton for four people).
Wonderfull.

“Fantastic food with friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Once again we had a great meal at this restaurant, very friendly service with good advice on the meals, they go the extra step to make you feel welcome.
The restaurant is spotless, toilets nice and clean with plenty of soap, hot water and paper towels.
Could not fault anything, well done.
