“consistently one of the best in town”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

As one of the main reporters for the Curry Club for several years I have had the pleasure of eating in very many Indian restaurants throughout the country, but particularly in Kent. I first visited this restaurant shortly after it opened in 1996 (in a former pub) and was very impressed,and despite the plethora of Indian restaurants that have opened in the town over the years it has remained the best, or one of the best, in town. The food is always well spiced, from hot to delicate flavours, freshly prepared, service is always spot on and portions plentiful. Previous reporters have said it all really, and I agree. It is always busy (naturally) and booking advisable (and essential Fraidays and Saturdays). The family also run other restaurants in town, but this, in my view, remains their flagship. For those interested in Indian food (and who might not get in the Gandhi) it is worth mentioning that there is an autentic Indian restaurant in town (i.e. not Bangladsehi run , but with an Indian manager and chef) called Rasoi Ghar in Milton Road. It is smaller, less sophisticated surroundings and with a less extensive menu, but the food is different and also excellent. Gravesend it fortunate to have two Indian restaurants offering much better than the average high street curryhouse fare (and to be fair another - Tufail - that comes close.

“Very impressed”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

Been eating out at various Indian restaurants in Gravesend for years but somehow never visited the Gandhi. Very glad that have made up for that now. Food was excellent, very tasty and good size portions. Service was just right, not too rushed but we weren't kept waiting too long either even though it was very busy. Only downside would be that it was very crowded in the main part of the restaurant, but we sat in the 'alcove' which suited us fine. Overall a very pleasant experience, looking forward to going back soon.

“Lovely food and great service”
Reviewed 26 June 2011

Stayed in Gravesend unexpectedly and looked at Tripadvisor for a restaurant recommendation so chose The Gandhi. The previous reviews were spot on. This is a really super restaurant. The food is tasty and fresh and the staff are absolutely lovely. We have no hesitation in recommending it.
