We had a lovely meal here and thought the service was excellent. Very polite and friendly. We love Indian food and this is by far our favourite restaurant. Also good value for money.

We visited en mass after a day out at the rugby. The food was good, but not remarkable. I did however like the page of specials which included tandoori salmon (very tasty) and. Darjeeling (which was not a cup of tea but instead a dish with a modicum of poke to it). Polite, discreet, prompt service. There was nothing to... More

We had a lovely evening meal, the food was wonderfully presented and cooked to perfection, it tasted divine. The only down side was the service was incredibly slow and we had over an hours wait between starter and main.

We chose to eat at the Ghandi to celebrate our Dad's 70th Birthday! We were greeted on arrival by very courteous and friendly staff who took our drinks and food order in good time. Everyone in our group enjoyed there choice of food, and had nothing to complain about. I must state that our evening didn't quite go to plan... More

Went there with some visiting foreign guys who wanted to have a curry. We asked them to do us a range of food for twenty quid flat and they did us proud. Too much of it even for hungry ex rugby players. See you guys again soon. That was superb. Thanks!!!!

Gave this place a try after seeing good reviews on their Facebook page, however I was disappointed with the service and flavour of my curry. The waiters were slow and disinterested, heaven forbid they'd crack a smile it seemed. Curry was listed as fairly hot but came out as a bland lemon dish. Disappointing as we live local and would...

Went here over the bank holiday weekend for the first time. Nice atmosphere and really enjoyed our starters, we had vegetable samosa's and onion bhajis. When our mains came it smelt really nice, I ordered chicken korma and mushroom fried rice. I cut into the chicken to check it was cooked (I'm fussy with meat) and it was pink. It... More
