This is by far the worst restaurant I have ever been too. It was recommended on hotel local information sheet. Chose because of 30 year experience, locality and apparently "real touch of india" slogan! Arrived at 745, shown to table and staff seemed friendly and...More

I was a little skeptical at the restaurant's claim to be the best in town but that was my prompt to check it out. To start, I had poppadoms with sauces. They were fresh, light and crisp. It would have been great to have spiced...More

We were at Gandhi restaurant some days back, terrible service.! The waitors had no clue what they were doing, food was far from how Indian food should taste like. I will not recommend to go to this restaurant.

I've never been a fan of Indian food because I don't care for curry. On a local visit to Haarlem, my husband talked me into trying Indian food again. We visited this restaurant and LOVED it! The food was outstanding and the owner made sure...More
