“New owners - good food and excellent service!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I have used this restaurant regularly over 15 plus years and was concerned to see a change of owners. However the food and service was as good as ever. Nice atmosphere and a good evening overall.

“Did we go on the wrong day?”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Lots of positive reviews from others and ranked in the top ten for Fleet, so we had to try
We were actually heading to the WE Restaurant as we've always received phenomenal service and it offers both Indian and Thai dishes, which keeps both my partner and I happy when we can't decide
Anyhow, it seems to be under refurbishment (at time of writing) and so we wandered into the Gurkha Square

Seated quick enough as only two other groups in the restaurant
However, the place soon got use and full pretty quickly - not sure if it's always that busy or if these patrons were also offshoots from the WE restaurant
But we got the impression the staff were struggling to cope with a full house
Our food came in an ok timeframe, but I was disappointed to see it covered in coriander when I specifically requested all dishes ordered contain no coriander (at the very least, no fresh leaves on top or in the dishes) - however, they rectified it with little fuss made
Food overall was otherwise good (the dishes labelled spicy could've been more spicy) and the value for money was decent
When we requested the bill, we had to go up to the counter bar as it was simply not forthcoming - again, it's possible we simply chose to try it out on the wrong day
Not bad enough to put us off a repeat visit, but we're in no rush for any immediate return

“Ok but wouldn't dash back”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here tonight for the first time in about 20 years and it was ok. The people who served us were lovely and the food was ok. Both of our dishes had prawns and they were not quality prawns, a bit tough and tasteless. Sag paneer was a bit dull. The rice was lovely. I wanted to go to Golden Triangle but she wouldn't have it.

“One of the best and nicest restaurants around”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I lived in Fleet for about 4 years and became a regular. The food never disappointed the staff was always wonderfully friendly, helpful and good fun. It's a while since I've been back but if it's the same owner or family, I can't imagine that the service or the smiles have changed one bit.
