My wife and I visited Ghandi's on Friday 6th Feb 2015 for a rare night out as my Mother babysat our children. What a lovely clean restaurant!! The place was immaculate with authentic Indian stylings and discreet background music. The staff were perfect at their jobs and couldn't be more helpful whilst the service was very quick indeed.

the food is brilliant and the service is courteous and friendly. I have both sat and taken food from The Gandhi and have never been disappointed. The food is well prepared and presented. The Take Aways are always well packed and hot. This is a very good and well priced restaurant and I recommend it without reservation.

It was my first time eating at this restaurant, I thought that the food was exquisite, as well as unique to other Indian restaurants- I will be definitely visiting again! The service was surprisingly immaculate, staff were very friendly and helpful, and overall the atmosphere was amazing, I had a great evening, and recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!

Our first time here for a take away. Discussed the dishes with them and they did not have a clue. They had no idea how to slightly adjust a dish. Nor did they know how to remove the tomatoes from another dish. Our normal price for our meals is £35. These charged us £52. And it was diabolical. NEVER AGAIN

It is highly unfortunate that you felt the need to post a negative review even though we spent 20 minutes on the phone with you on a busy Saturday evening trying to explain what I have pointed out in this response; and even offered a free meal as a token of our good will. Since you have done so, please... More
