About the show

Gordon is pushed to the limit as he faces a succession of worst-ever restaurants, from a vegetarian eatery in Paris and a huge curry house in Nottingham, to a trip to a meat carvery in Sussex and an oyster bar in Brighton with delusions of grandeur.

There are walk-outs, shut-outs and shouting matches galore, including one obstinate chef who just won't leave until he's physically removed for good. 

Irrepressible and irresistible, Gordon's approach is more radical than ever: making vegetarian food sexy for the French, using sustainable seafood to reinvent fish and chips and making authentic regional Indian food to replace oily slop.

Moving, surprising and inspiring, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares takes viewers to the heart of the harsh reality of running a restaurant, and reveals that there's always a chance of redemption even with the most seemingly unpromising ingredients.
