“Great Indian - no so great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Gandi appears as a genuin indian restaurant, and it is. At first we were a bit unsure, the location is outside the main streets overlooking a parking (at the port). But getting inside it appears well designed as and indian restaurant, with high quality furniture and decoration - and not at least with freindly staff. We was were pleased with our meal - "the chicken tikka malsala" - very tasty and nice prepered.

I will give it four out of five. The main reason for picking off one star is it's location and appearance from outside.

“Before show-off time, serious food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Outstanding Indian food. Well prepared, well served and delicious. Service is excellent, specially when compared with the typical French standard. Good atmosphere. A nice place if you want to have a very good meal. Fair prices.

“Very good Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Gandhi restaurant in St Tropes served a very nice evening meal. The restaurant had a good selection of food on the menu, not extensive but just right. The quality of the food was very good, the service professional and the general appearance was good. Will definitely return.

“Authentic Food with Charming Staff - a rarity in St-Tropez!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

A friend had been imploring me to have dinner or at least a takeaway from Gandhi Restaurant in St-Tropez for a couple of years now. I should have listened the first time he mentioned it! The restaurant overlooks the "Parking du port" but don't let that put you off. The design of the restaurant is typically what you would expect from any Indian restaurant around the world but don't come for the design. Come for the service and especially the food! Long time visitors to St-Tropez get jaded by the poor service culture and distinctly average food. Gandhi Restaurant discretely (not a word usually associated with the bling of St-Tropez) succeeds at both.

We had a Mixed Starter plate to share. The Lamb Samosas were lovely and very meaty! The other starters were nice but I think in future I would go for something a little on the lighter side or just more samosas! For mains we had Lamb Vindaloo, Chicken Madras and Prawn Malai Curry with Dal and two types of rice accompanied by Cheese Naan and Raita. I loved the Vindaloo and the Madras! The Dal was absolutely delicious! The Kashmir Rice was a little sweet for me - I prefer a more savoury Pilau Rice. I am really looking forward to trying loads more dishes on the menu.

Accompanying the food, was the charming and attentive service! Each member of staff interacted with the guests on a very warm and personal level. It felt like I had been a customer for years. It is only my fault that I didn't visit sooner and put it on my list of favourites! When presented with the bill I was amazed. Outstanding value. Well done Gandhi!
