Edit Did You Know? Goofs At the beginning of the episode the restaurant's name is clearly displayed as "Dillons Lounge" (on the scrolling marquee) and "Dillons Restaurant" (on the canopy). Later, after Gordon Ramsay changes its name, the new signs and canopy say "Purnima Dillions Restaurant" (note the errant "i" in Dillons). In a followup episode where Ramsay revisits the restaurant, the spelling has been corrected to "Dillons," removing the extra "i." See more »

There, bathed in neon light beaming from the Subway sandwich sign across the street advertising the $5 footlong sub, stood Purnima. Loud music blared from the adjacent bar, Dillons, which explains why the Indian restaurant dropped the name. As we perused the menu in the window, I noticed a laminated clip from Time Out New York touting the restaurant for being a Kitchen Nighmare success story. Unfortunately, Allison realized why we were there and doubted my optimism.


I guess the folks at Purnima, though miles away from where they started, have forgotten a few of Gordon's golden rules. If Purnima brought the prices down and the loud volume from neighbor Dillons, they might be able to salvage their reputation. Certainly diners would remember the food and not the sensational images from Purnima's former kitchen nightmare.


Bravely, I headed to Purnima, formerly known as Dillons. The most nightmarish of the bunch, before Gordon installed a new chef and fired the restaurant manager, Purnima was infested with cockroaches and rotten food that Gordon said could kill any innocent diner.


Gordon's biggest challenge is fixing a Indian restaurant in New York City, which happens to be across the street from his own restaurants. The place is run by three different managers, none of whom are doing a very good job. The kitchen is atrocious and flies are everywhere, but Gordon has no choice but to give one manager the ax for backstabbing his partners. Written by Kyle J. McElravy
