So all I can say is compliments to the chef who knows how to cook traditional Indian food with... More

A good choice of wines and always a freebie offered at the end of the meal. Can have some boisterous customers on... More

Git to our Hotel about 10pm, put bags in room, needed food. Most of the pubs had stopped serving, and the only real option within a short walk was the Gandhi Tandoori. Walked in off the street, offered a choice of tables. Poppadums and chutneys ordered, plus a cold beer of course. Poppadums were nice and crisp, a good flavour... More

Stopped off here at the request of my husband. I wasn't feeling very well. Oh. My. The tastiest food. The best service. I simply cannot recommend this place enough! Coconut rice and a curry with honey and nuts..... so happy.

Glad we did because it was a lovely end to the evening The menu is what you'd expect of a Tandoori/Indian restaurant and the... More

On first name terms with the restaurant staff, always accommodating and can never do to much for you, food is outstanding and beats any curry house in London.
