“Delivery - under delivered”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We have had meals from here before which we were unhappy with... It is tasty but a bit pricy.. This time we got delivery on Monday night which they forgot one of the meals which we weren't impressed by. When we rang to complain they were mainly interested to confirm we were ok with the fact that they had forgotten and weren't willing to fix it... Raj's corner for now on..

“Overpriced Indian but tasted good to me”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Went for dinner in winter 2013. Service was OK, meals were tasty just a but more expensive than i would prefer because you get similar Indian meals in Hamilton for much less and taste similar. Probably wont go back unless someone has arranged to meet there and in that case i will be happy to go along. My main sore point was price but Im mindful of cost vs food/setting

“Inedible overpriced food and delivery rip off and super slow service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

we ordered food from this place on a family trip. The food was in edible we all had gastritis after eating it. They initially said food will be delivered in 45 minutes but it took one and half hours. With young kids it was a great issue.
They charged 7.5 dollars to deliver food which was never mentioned initially.
I would never order from this place

“Best Indian in Newcastle!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

What a hidden gem! I'd be hearing great reviews of Gandha's for quite some time from a wide variety of friends, but it took me quite a while to actually get there and try it for myself.

Since the first visit I've now been back quite a few times and have had excellent food and service every time.

The staff seem to know their stuff around what goes together and are always happy to help and offer advice on a good selection to go with.

I've tried a whole bunch of different things from the menu and have never been disappointed.
I recommend getting a few dishes (one main per adult will be plenty) plus rice and sharing between your dining group (even if you're only a couple).

It's a lovely little place, and we've never felt rushed or crowded, even though it always seems to be busy.

I rate this as the best Indian food in Newcastle!
