Visit date - 19 Dec 2016 Restaurant Décor - very basic, seat upholstery in need of wash, ceiling and walls bear look, not cosy at all. Menu is simply a printout laminated and obviously looking tarty and scruffy (split edges, food grease found its way to the paper and stained it, you get the picture). Service- staff not overly friendly...... More

It's really ok, reasonable pickle tray and all round tasty, but it was meaty chunks in sauce rather than a sauce with meat, know what I mean? The meat was plonked in the sauce not cooked in it....it was ok but could have been better, saag aloo v nice though, return? Maybe, many more choices not far away. Prices very... More

Arrived at the restaurant after 11pm and there was no problem in serving us. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food not bad. We ordered a vegetable balti, which was nicely spiced with chunks of mixed vegetables, tarka dal which wasn't garlicky enough and needed salt, nice pilau rice and plain nan. But the balti channa was hopeless, with... More

Good food and fantastic taste. Large menu so no problem finding something. Wine and beer also excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beware, as this is such a good restaurant it gets busy, so be patient.... the wait is worth it

Recently went here for a curry. As I'm working in Ipswich. And I'm so happy Iv found this place. The jalfrezi was great. The mushroom rice had more than one bit of mushroom in it. And the cobra beer was cold. Book me a table. I'm coming back.

We had booked a table for 8pm on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy and we stood in the doorway for several minutes, completely ignored by staff until I went into the restaurant and told a waiter that we had a table booked. After another wait, he came and told us that our table wasn't ready and to give... More

'Back to the Future'. Last visited here some 15 years ago as over the years other establishments have surpassed this one. Having met up with ex-colleagues we enjoyed a very good meal, although on arrival we were shown to our table downstairs despite there appearing to be a number of tables upstairs that would have accommodated us? The waiter was... More

At the end of a long day my wife and I decided to order a takeaway. This has always been a favorite of ours but lately the food seems to be even more outstanding. My wife is dairy and gluten free, and they can always compensate for her needs. We often have 4 or 5 side orders and the chicken... More

Loved our trip to The Ghandi, providing an authentic experience with Indian cuisine and dining culture. Our visit was made even better thanks to a great, nearby and cheap car park on Grafton Way, IP1 1AX!
