Never ever been to an Indian restaurant that did not offer poppadum's at the start. Food bland and uninteresting, lamb was tough and not cheap. Main plates were stone cold, diet coke was flat, toilets a mess, staff looked like they were wearing working clothes. Best bit was the constant turning on/off of the background music (to find another track?)... More

Rumour has it that Gandhi came to this actual restaurant when he came to Rye back in the day.It used to be called Tandoori Knights but the owners changed the name to The Gandhi after his visit.Yum Yum.

Food was bland and nothing special. Bill came and was well over £60.00 for three pints and three curries which seemed expensive.... It nearly got paid until I clocked there seemed to be an extra charge of £11.70 with some illegable scribble beside it. When queried was told was for drinks until I pointed out another line which also appeared... More

Food was reasonable. Service was average. But the bill was ever so dear... Then it turned out we had been charged twice for our drinks. Make sure you check your bill

Our table was booked for 8:30pm, we arrived a few minutes late but the table wasn't ready. The waiters did say they would prepare the table, unfortunately they didn't advise when it was ready, we waited around 10 minutes and asked if it was ready, they then said it was ready. Once seated drinks were ordered, I'm not sure how... More

Whether takeaway or dining in, this restaurant works for me. Bags of flavour, but if you want it, they don't hold back on the heat. A decent amount of food for your money, customer service is fantastic. I live 9 miles from this place, but refuse to buy substandard meals from places more nearby, I know i'd just be disappointed....

After some indifferent meals here because of change of staff. We had a takeaway last night and all food cooked to perfection. Sheriff as pleasant as ever but most of all chicken was moist not dry as in most Indian restaurants... Well done sheriff. Alfie

It was a fine dining restaurant. But the price was very reasonable. The staff were happy to serve us with smiles all around. Although we chose the dishes from the menu, we were asked for our preference for spice levels and indeed the food was cooked to meet our specific requests. The staff were friendly and engaged us throughout our... More
