Paid a visit on two occasions while driving through Castle Donington. This is a very pleasant & comfortable restaurant. Menu is good & the food is delicious. Prices are moderate or similar to other Asian restaurants. The staff are efficient & friendly. Only drawback is the ridiculous 'welcome' & 'over the top' greeting you are given on entering the premises... More

I'm a bit often surprised by Indian food it is much the same, however this place is fantastic. The staff and owner are very welcoming in fact the owner is but if a local celebrity in how he welcomes you into the restaurant. The food is to die for and I rate it as some of the best Indian food... More

Six of us tried this Indian restaurant for the first time and all were most impressed. The food was delicious and the staff were most helpful which included suggesting the wine and various dishes. We went on a Saturday night so it was heaving but mr Gandhi and his staff worked like trojans to make sure the meals didn't take... More

There was a group of us - some of which have many times before. The waiter (he won't mind me referring to him as a small chap!!) was a scream. He entertained, was amusing and hugged everyone on arrival. A scream. If you ask he will also show you an excellent range of single malt whiskies upstairs

We have been to Gandhi's a few times with friends. The food is excellent and very plentiful, the staff are efficient and friendly (I can highly recommend the Chicken Pasanda which is my favorite). The prices are very good too, not over expensive for what you get. The surroundings are cosy and the tables and cutlery are clean. It is... More

Visited in a group of four on 5th February (Sunday evening). This was the first time I have visited this restaurant and from entering, I was impressed by the welcome received. It was actually quite busy for a Sunday evening but we were seated quickly and the staff were very polite and attentive. Good selection of wine and beer and... More
