A colleague and I were just passing by, checked out their menu and stopped in for lunch. Though small and dark, it was cozy and comfortable. We got the best seats by the window/open door. The prices were very affordable ($7-$10 pp.) The place is made to look like a train car, its narrow and long (only has 1 bathroom.)... More

We have eaten lots of Indian throughout our travels and this place was just sensational. It was fitted out like the typical dodgy Indian restaurant but it was cheap (beers 3.95) and the food was just superb. And then we seemed to get dessert and tea thrown in for free. $60 (with 5 beers) and a sensational three courses and... More

Grabbed a quick bite here recently whilst waiting for a movie to start. Very friendly staff, and if you have the time, the special three course deal with coffee is a bargain ( be aware that the dessert will be rice pudding- not a universally loved dish). Staff very attentive, but thought we would have a better evening if we... More

Stopped in on a whim. Never been here before but what a great find! The Ghandi Cafe is small and dark but the service and food are quite excellent! It appeared to be the owner who took our order and was very pleasant and helpful. Papadums with 3 sauces were brought to our table with the water. We ordered the... More

Called in for a meal the other night, don't let the small dark interior put you off, this place does great food and the service was wonderful. Were given €complimentary pappadum and dip to start, ordered a bread and chicken, pepper and onion dip appetizer which was fantastic. Mains of lamb tikka and chicken jalfrezi, the lamb was a little... More

We had no experience with indian cuisine but the food should be good as it taste very home style and yummie. The guy who takes your order seems to be the owner and he is very very polite and friendly. At the end he will give you a complimentary and excellent pink indian pudin !!! Is easy to get there...

A friend of mine took me since he knows I love Indian food. Lived in Jackson Heights before moving to Florida a few years ago really missing authentic Indian food. The service was excellent and very friendly and accommodating. Started with samosas and eggplant fritters both very delicious. I had the chicken biryani and my friend had one of the... More

I have been enjoying this affordable consistantly delicious resteraunt for over 12 years and even with my stroller they happily welcomed us so I continue to return. Not sure if the kids will love it? Try the cheese poori, banana pakora and chicken korma not spicy but flavorful and kids friendly choices. Bring crayons let them go nuts on the... More
