  • Fine example of the show; nothing more, nothing less.

    This time around has Gordon Ramsey in Nottingham to try and revamp 'The Curry Lounge,' an Indian restaurant that had came in 2nd place the past year, and isn't afraid to promote such (ridiculous) accolades on its front windows. Gordon mentions that this area of Britain has over 100 Curry Restaurants in a 2 mile block radius! Talk about needing help! Especially if Israel, the ex-salesmen turned restaurant owner refuses to reduce his insanely enormous menu to a menu that could work. Gordon, with the help of Khan (Head Chef), convinces Israel to try the new menu and it works. The episode works - not the best episode of the 30 offered, but certainly one of the better ones.moreless
  • Gordon goes to a Bollywood themed place that looks trashy at best. With bad food and an owner who knows nothing, Gordon has his job cut out for him.

    Sometimes just having money makes success easy, but in the restaurant business it does not. The terrible decor, overpriced bad food, an owner who is convinced he is right and a kitchen staff that does not seem to care are the obstacles that must be overcome.

    Gordon talks to the cooks in the kitchen and let's them make dishes from their home areas in India, getting rid of poorly thought out dishes and letting the people get good home cooking at reasonable prices.

    Gordon shows his expertise other areas and impresses me with his understanding of how those dishes are made. Not everyone in the world cooks the same or with the same spices. Yes, curries are a staple on English menus from their colonial days, but the dishes served with definitely well beyond that.moreless
