I've never eaten in, so can't account for table service; but the delivery service is great - timely, polite - food sometimes a little 'warm', but just microwave! Great food variety & has a very good local reputation - it's been going for years.

It was wonderful to find an Indian restaurant so close to home. They had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Terrific menu and very good service. Attentive but not in your face (something some restaurants don't seem to be able to manage). We will definitely be visiting again (so many things on the menu to try!

Mine and my boyfriends favourite Indian takeaway! Obsessed. Never late, if anything it's been early more than its been on time... Which when you're hungry is the best thing!!! Lovely food, best we've had. Can't fault it!

We were headed over to the Brook and decided to grab a bite before the show - didn't have anywhere in particular in mind. As we looked to parked up we passed Ghandi so we made our way back there. They were pretty busy but they sat us down until a table became free, which wasn't too long. The staff... More

First time I had been there. The pricing was competitive and definitely worth the money for what we had. The choice in dishes was much better than other places and they weren't your run of the mill meals. The first round of drinks was slightly wrong but he apologised straight away (which is all I require). The food itself was... More

We ordered drinks when we sat down; these were forgotten. When the menu was delivered we ordered poppadums; these were forgotten. About 1.5 hours after we had ordered, our main courses were delivered. The food was delicious but oh my goodness the service - it was diabolical, shambolic and to cap it all by the time our food arrived a... More

Staff seemed overwhelmed with the number of patrons. When the food finally arrived it was very good. Will give them a another try.

Having travelled 4 hours down we did a quick TripAdvisor search for an Indian restaurant. The first choice was fully booked so we went wandering and came across the Gandhi. It was a good decision for us. Service was decent and food tasty. My wife had chicken tikka masala and I had lamb Gandhi Special. Both were tasty. The masala... More
