Cheap & Bad – Not sure how people are ready to give good rating to this poor quality restaurant
It's good all of the time... – I am a regular customer of Gandhi's and have even had the restaurant cater my birthday party. The food is always fresh and so good. The owner/chef, Dhillon, cooks the food fresh everyday. Not only is it delicious but the portions are generous and one can eat two meals from one. People come from all over the Portland downtown area to eat lunch. The restaurant is open for lunch only 5 days a week. Even though there is a big lunch rush the service is kind and efficient, delivering the food in plenty of time to fit into your lunch hour. Each dish has distinct flavors that distinguish it from any of the others. My favorite, if I must choose, is the chicken Makhani or the shrimp served with any of the seven daily vegetable offerings. The chicken Vindaloo is delicious and spicy and I highly recommend the tomatoes.
ksd – Super-cheap, fast, friendly service, and great Indian food. You cannot beat this value - I ordered the chicken vindaloo (only $5.00 for a huge portion, and very tasty) which comes with a vegetable side and some rice. They also have great condiments including fresh chopped cilantro and a bevy of sauces, all available at your request for free. Plus it's truly some of the best Indian food I've had so far in Portland. There's seating inside although I wouldn't describe it as a "nice sit-down" type of place. That's not as important to me as good food, however, and the service was also friendly and efficient, but not rushed. I will be back for lunch soon.
Well worth the price – I wondered in this cute little lunch area just at closing yesterday. Gandhi's was the only food stand still open. The guy behind the counter was very helpful offering samples of everything that wasn't sold out. The servings were huge. I was completely stuffed afterwards. And of course everything was yummy. At $5-$6 a plate I totally feel that I got a great bargain
Very good, but a 10? – Given the price, it's above average. Creamed spinach is usually a favorite, but very sub-par here. However, the chicken dishes are very good. I appreciate more bang for the buck, but they provide too much rice. No Samosas!
