Liked the ability to sit down and eat. Disliked almost everything else. Have cooked better curry at home on numerous occasions.

We love coming here. The food is always to a high standard, as is the service. Polite and friendly staff are a credit to the restaurant. Excellent place to bring children, our six year old loves it! Always a yummy meal. If your in the area it's definitely worth a visit.

Was a little put off by the outside of the restaurant which I found very ordinary, but was encouraged by a member of my group not to be so easily put off. Was very pleased I did go there. Service was warm and friendly. we were welcomed into the restaurant and this feeling continued throughout our meal. The food was... More

We've been eating here for years. It's always very good, I don't understand why the ratings aren't better for this restaurant. The food is lovely, well presented, the staff are always friendly and the service is always fine.

We have been visiting the Gandhi now for 15 years and it is my favourite restaurant in Rye. Not only my favourite, but that of my children too whose first choice for a dinner out is a visit! They say the Chicken Korma is unsurpassed! Service is always with a smile and it is highly recommended.

My wife and I and our 8 year old went here for dinner. It looked promising with nice décor and a booth to sit in. From the start, the staff were weird and unfriendly. My wife's white wine tasted watered down and so did my Kingfisher beer which was flat. Later a "freebie" baileys was given to both of us... More

First time here, I went with my parents for a lunch on the 10th April, and I truly cannot express how much of a pleasure this lunch was. Everything from our welcome by our server Suhel, through ordering our food, and enjoying a set of starters and main courses to finishing the meal and leaving. The restaurant is beautiful, clean,...

I have visited the Gandhi many times since it opened and previously when they were in New Romney. The food has always been consistently good and the staff are great. We visited again on the 10th April and the food was excellent. Always a warm welcome and they will always try and fit you in. Well worth a visit.
