First Class Meal

My wife and I recently had a couple of days in Derbyshire and came across Gandhi's Indian restaurant. The staff were warm and friendly on our arrival. Although it was mid-week, the place was quite full, we didn't wait long to be served. There was a good choice from the menu and the meal was first... read more

I live in Manchester, which is not short of outstanding outstanding Asian restaurants. I make it my business to seek out the very best. My job every couple of months involves an overnight stay in Castle Donington. In the winter of 2014 I stumbled across Gandhi's on the high street. I was greeted by Gandhi himself and quickly taken to... More

Good food, great atmosphere and 5 star entertainment from the Boss. The menu was read out just like in India at 100 mph and service fast (Monday nite). Definitely going back soon. pic of Thali below, choose your own dishes.

Stayed in Castle Donington last weekend and ate here with five others. Wow what a superb experience. Friendliness and service was second to none, the evening was relaxed and unhurried and the food was absolutely superb, the best Indian I've ever eaten actually. Probably the best service I've had in any restaurant too. If you're in the area and like... More

5 of us experienced the Ghandi after looking at previous Tripadvisor's reviews and a personal recommendation. We were not disappointed, really friendly Mr. Ghandi and a very courteous and professional service. Very nice surroundings, excellent food and three Indian lagers on tap. The nans are really big and the curry portions quite big, overall a great experience and fantastic quality... More

Met by the owner who shook our hands as we entered. Seated, drinks and popadoms in record time. Lamb was so very tender. Never seen a naan so big, and was really tasty. Free after dinner drink too. Will definitely be returning.
