We decided at the last moment to go to the Gurkha Restuarant as we had eaten there on a previous visit to Blackpool so new the layout , due to... read more it being a Saturday evening we phoned up to book , thankfully they wernt full and 20 mins later we were seated.
Only when we arrived we realised due to covid 19 certain precautions were in place , that's when we first realised all the food is behind plastic screens , dont get me wrong its still done on a level were we felt safety was present whilst still maintaining the fact it was a buffet restuarant.
We were seated and offered drinks and were told to go up and get your food when ready , so off we trotted to get food, thankfully there was a extremely helpful young lad on the other side of the counter with a plate and a serving spoon in hand asking us what we wanted, you simpley tell the lad what you want and he puts it on your plate.
Now to some people that might think this is not be what we came in for seeing as its a help yourself buffet were you literally put on what you want, and at first I admit I was of that thought and I dont like this approach , but I'm hoping the owners read what I'm about to write, the lad who was serving from 9ish Saturday evening soon put me and hubs at ease , he asked what we wanted and simpley delivered , even asked if what he had placed on my plate was enough and wether I wanted more or less, was the perfect gentleman, when I came up for seconds and naughtily 3rds he asked me every time wether I needed another fork .
As per usual the food was fantastic, especially the char sui pork.
Sadly due to the fact id eaten to many main courses id left no room for sweet, they did look lovely though.
Its weird to think how we had walked in 45mins earlier and judged what we saw as bad , we soon realised this was down to civid 19 and our safety and soon realised how wrong we were, the way they are looking after your safety combined with the fact the food is yummy made it all worthwhile,
Till the next time Gurkha when we will be back, hopefully covid free but if its still there it wont bother us.
Great buffet with loads of choice. As per previous reviews, there are screens over the food at the moment and staff behind the counters to serve you. They are not... read more shy with the portions so make sure you are hungry when you go!
Everything we ate was tasty, and the tables seemed quite well spaced out.
The track and trace sign in sheet was in the entrance to the restaurant but staff didn't ask/remind us to fill it in so we almost missed it. Not sure how many other people would have missed it altogether.
