Visited two weeks before Christmas while visiting friends in the area. Expected the restaurant to be full due to the time of year, so our friends booked a table for four. On arrival the restaurant was empty at 19:30 so we were given our table. We were hovered over while choosing our meals. To cut a long story short we... More

Having visited this Indian restaurant several times before, I must say this was the worse visit to date. As we entered the establishment around 10pm on a Tuesday evening, there was no one in the restaurant dining. Asked for a table for three by the usual waiter and kindly escorted us in the middle. No issue there. Ordered poppadoms and... More

Dear customers, We are sorry to hear that the food did not meet your expectations on this particular visit. Had you informed us at the time, we would have been able to resolve the matter. The starters are not microwaved and are served on the plate direct from the tandoor. We serve the food as soon as it is ready... More

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the B&B we were staying at. It was a quiet thursday night off peak season so we were the only customers actually eating in the restaurant (although take a away was busy). This is one of the nicest indian meals we have ever had. Authentic dishes and all really well cooked and tasty.... More

Really enjoyed The Ghandi. Frequent visitor to Skeggy and decided to stop over rather than travel home. Glad I did as I would not have found this place. Not very busy but a little gem. Will come again.

We usually go a couple of times a year. Don't do the set meals any more, but have a good choice menu. Good food for a good price, friendly service.

Poor service bad food and just plain rudeness, hardly ate any of the meal as it was so poor and when asked if it was OK we were honest and it was plain to see we hadn't enjoyed it there was no apology or discussion just a grunt....rude!

You ordered the Korma and the Chicken Tikka Masala and complained of it being sweet and not like what you're used to at your regular. The Korma and Tikka masala is served sweet at our restaurant and is clearly stated on the menu. Every Indian restaurant is different and we understand that you may be used to it cooked differently.... More

Had a great meal. The service is very fast and business like. A great range of dishes to choose from. We found the staff very efficient. Asked them to get us a taxi and it was done straight away. Highly recommend
