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.
The Curry Lounge is closed. Raz sold the restaurant in 2015 and it closed in 2018. In 2017 Raz admitted to £65,000 of tax fraud in relation to the restaurant.
