Gordon visits the Curry Lounge in Nottingham, the city with more restaurants per square mile than any other in Britain. This 110-seater Indian restaurant has been run since January by ex-sales director Raz who's new to the business - and it shows. Despite a £500,000 refurbishment, and décor like a Bollywood set, the honeymoon period's well and truly over. His once-healthy trade is evaporating and, at his current rate of loss, it's uncertain he'll make it past Christmas.
Did You Know?
Raz is so proud of his Bollywood palace, that he's prepared to bend the truth a little to get it noticed.
