Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares

Show Summary

Each week Gordon travels to a different restaurant in dire need of help. He often has to deal with chefs and waitresses stuck in their ways, ready-made meals and slow service, none of which he allows in any of his own restaurants. With a long history in the food industry, Gordon uses his wealth of knowledge to try to get them back on track and into financially viable businesses.

  • Gordon Ramsay made the cooking shows a real TV hit for all ages!

    9.5
    British superstar chef and restaurant-owner Gordon Ramsay travels around Great Britain, helping unsuccessful restaurants to improve their quality of service and come back to life. Very useful, because it not only teaches to cook (it does not really go into details of the recipes), but Gordon shows his management skills and explains them to the viewers. It is truly funny, because the poor restaurant employees are being hammered (Beware, explicit language!!!) and the whole process results in serious drama. Lazy employees are not always prepared for the heavy task to live up to Gordon's expectations. Genuinely enjoyable show, except it always goes around the same scenario and is kinda predictable, but of course, every eatery has its own problems, so you can watch it again and again!moreless
  • Gordon Ramsay goes from failing restaurant to failing restaurant offering his gruff nurturing, brutal honesty and stubborn style of desperately needed help. Most often dragging the owners and chefs kicking and screaming all the way to SUCCESS!moreless

    Gordon Ramsay is a STAR! I am a fairly new fan of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and I just can't get enough. If you listen closely to the advice Gordon offers these Businessmen and women, the chefs and staff, you can hear how his words of advice can be applied to all walks of life and in almost any profession! His advice makes so much sense, common sense. Be prepared though for the bleeps as Gordon doesn't edit his language as he goes along. He is so passionate about what he does and says that he doesn't worry about the listener possibly being offended by his choice of vocabulary. That is one of the things I like about him. He is spontaneous and says what he's thinking and feeling at any given moment and still his advice is sound. He is so confident with HIs advice he just GIVES it, uncensored and right on the mark! I've learned alot from watching his shows. Do I ever think he could have handled someone with alittle more sensitivity? Yes. He can be hard on a person. But in the end he is there to help them and his warmth and caring come through. He means what he says and if shocking you into listening is what it takes then this is your man! Watch his eyes as he's speaking....you'll see the compassion and the passion even when he's being...well....sometimes verbally offensive. I'm so impressed with his knowledge and sound advice that I seem to see past the bleeps and just "get" what he's saying. He's a genuine man and I love him! Now I have to find out what channels his other programs are on!moreless
  • As one of the best chefs in the world, Gordon Ramsay, travels the world to help less fortunate restaurants than his own. But he dosen't know that he is heading disasters way as he tires to make kitchen nightmares into kitchen delight. Ah, Languagemoreless

    For a TV series made by one of the best chefs in the world, it has certainly become a great success. It has toped the UK television charts for the whole first series legth. A UK servey also said that it had the most content viewers in the whole UK alone.

    Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares has been critized for his use of bad language during this cutting edge show a lot lately. One viewer counted the number of times bad language was used in one episode only and a staggering eighty times was announced.

    Although one of the most swearing shows on TV right now, Ramasay's Kitchen Nightmares has lately had all the good reviews from the Australian newspapers. It even replaced the most anticipated TV series times to be aired, that beins Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. This show was put into the nine thirty time slot while Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares was put into the eight thirty time slot.

    Gordon Ramsay has made a hell of alot of money in the last couple of years, 55% of that profit coming from his TV shows.

    I think the use of bad language is the thing that makes the show funny and interesting. If you are one of those low-lifes whom thinks this show should be banned I tell oyu now, switch the @#$&*!@ channel over dummies.

    One last thignif you are planning on becoming a chef here are some of Gordon Ramsay's tips from 60 minutes:

    1. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort spot.

    2. Be imaginative about your cooking

    3. Enjoy your cooking.

    4. And the most important thing: Mind your language!moreless
  • Gordon Ramsay is on a mission to stop restaurants, of all over the world to go down the drain. The experties and patience of Chef Gordon Ramsay is put to the test as he tries to turn the tables for the kitchen nightmares. Ah, mind your language Gordon!moreless

    For ashow that is full of kitchens nightmares and and hidious attitudes, "Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares" has had all the reviews from viewers around the world.

    This show is hosted by Chef Gordon Ramsay, one of the best chefs in the world, and also by his and his counterparts dirty language.

    It is one of the most popular and controversial TV shows in Australia. The reason why it is so controversial is because it has so much dirty language that, one viewer counted 80 dirty words used in one episode.

    The Tv show has been asked to be on air a little bit later at night or even to be band. A primary school principal in Victoria even had to ask for the parents of the children attending to not let their children watch the show because they were using the dirty language in the classroom.

    Gordon Ramsay watch your language! And as for the losers out their that don't like this show, (Duh!!!) switch the channel over dummies.moreless
  • He swears because he cares!

    9.0
    I think this is a great series. One I never miss. So much more than just another cookery programme. In fact, there is very little actual cooking in the show. It is, rather, an entertaining way of demonstrating how to run a proper restaurant business, by showing all the pitfalls in the form of REAL failing businesses. In other words, a 'How NOT to do it' show.

    In some of the episodes, the owners are so arrogant, and think they know it all, but are losing staggering amounts of money every week. Ramsay has the patience, if not the language, of a saint! Great show. It'll make you wonder about the state of the kitchens next time you're in your favourite restaurant!moreless
