“Great Affordable food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Have been regularly eating at Ghandi restaurant, get a chicken and veg meal packed to eat at home. Portions are good, great food. We love their quail eggs and chicken masala.

It looks like a canteen, but then it is the food that matters so we get it packed to enjoy at home as it is always crowded.
Definitely recommended if one wishes to try the south indian flavours in Singapore

“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

A real place for good home cooked food. Really delicious and large portions. Very reasonably priced. No Hype, just simple good food that you can eat daily. Only thing is sometimes dishes are a little too spicy, so chose carefully. Dont worry about the ambience, concentrate on the food alone. Staying at Grand Chancellor consider this to be the hotel restaurant!!!

“Experience True Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

During my exploring of Little India I was fortunate to have a local friend of mine who is a Singaporean resident for some 50 years. He took my by the Gandhi restaurant and told me it was his favorite place to eat. He informed me that the owner is the only one that cooks…if he is sick or on holiday the restaurant closes down.
So taking his recommendation I decided to go there for lunch a few days later. The food was served on a banana leaf, rice is severed out of a large silver container…and then you have a choice of sauces to go over the rice. I ordered the curry lamb, curry chicken, and roasted fish. These are all small portions severed on the side. The food was wonderful. Full of flavor especially the curry lamb! I recommend this dish as a must have…simply wonderful! I do have to admit it takes some getting use to getting with your fingers…but no worries; a fork and spoon are available at the table for the ones that simply can’ put aside the western table manners.
The price is great for the quality of food and the portion is generous as well. If you really want to experience authentic Indian cuisine then stop by the Gandhi restaurant.

“Worth the trip to Little India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

This was a great find with yummy food, cheap prices, local Indians and tourists queueing and then chowing down on great spicy curries and delicious accompaniments, washed down with sweet, hot chai. The serving sizes are decent, the turnover of customers is pretty fast as the service is efficient. Food is served on lush green banana leaves with all you can eat rice (if you opt for the rice option). The chicken curry was a bit spicy for me but I still ate it all up and sweated it out. 2 meals with 2 drinks came to S$15. We took away Indian desserts which each cost S$1 (but I wasn't a fan). Indian food while in Singapore is a must try for tourists, cos of the demographics of the population, and this is a pretty good place to have it.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

I loved everything I had, it was all delicious. I had mutton curry, daal, a variety of chutneys, rice, and bread. Food was served on banana leaves, forks and spoons provided, although most of the other diners were using their hands. The service was quick and efficient, although the water was a man of very few words, mostly just grunted. The atmosphere is a bit bleak, but dont let that deter you. Next time i'm in Singapore, I will definitely go there again. It was a great experience.
