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

We are sorry to hear of your experience. We were exceptionally busy on Saturday and our waiter who served your food was under a lot of pressure. However, this does not excuse him from not interacting or serving in an abrupt manner. We will surely have a word and resolve the issue. We hope that you can revisit so that... More

It wouldn't matter if it is your first visit, or if, like us, it is a favourite Indian Restaurant. The Gandhi has been in the town for many years, and its reputation and quality of food is second to none. The menu is wide and varied with many options - Tandoori, Korma, Vindaloo, Balti, Madras etc. etc. etc. It always... More
