We checked out the menu outside the restaurant the previous evening (See my review on the Caliente Cab), and promised to come back. We were extremely pleased with the atmosphere, decor and of course the food. The flock wall paper was a tounge-in-cheek (to me) throw back to 1970s Bengali restaurants in the UK, and the Arsenal and Liverpool football... More

Do not come with more than 4 people. Although we sat 7, it was not comfortable and I just felt like we were in their way. I had the Chicken Tikka Masala that I get everywhere I go and the Garlic Naan that I also always have to get. I know Tikka Masala is generally more on the sweet side... More

When visiting NYC, we like to simply wander around the village and pick a restaurant just by checking out the menu and the ambiance. We chose Ghandi Cafe because it was busy and the smell of the food from the entrance was enticing. We were not disappointed. We were greeted and seated immediately by friendly staff. We ordered traditional entrees... More

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
