GANDHI INDIAN RESTAURANT
A Unique Experience in Indian Cuisine Opening night at the Gandhi Restaurant brought cries of praise and delight from customers when they tasted different samples of the unique cuisine on Monday night. Officially opened by County Councillor, Mr. Tony Peaston, the Candhi offers the discerning diner authentic Indian dishes, many available for the first time in Hampshire. The secret lies in the preparation – only authentic Indian herbs and spices are used to individually prepare each special dish, following ancient recipes, many handed down through generations of Indian chefs.
“I’ve travelled extensively and dined at many Indian restaurants throughout the country, but rarely have I tasted Indian food of such a high standard,” extolled Councillor Peaston. “Whilst Gandhi himself was a leader of men, the Gandhi Restaurant could be considered the leader of a new breed of Indian cuisine in Hampshire,” he added.
“By far the best curry we have had in the Portsmouth area,” was the comment of Havant diners, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Cairns of Dcnvilles. “We enjoyed the different menu and found the advice of the staff, explaining how each dish was prepared, very helpful for deciding on our choice of menu,” they said. Such glowing comments reflect the exclusive nature of the dishes available at the Gandhi Restaurant.
You can choose from a menu which offers curries and tandoories, knowing each one is specially cooked for you, with individual care and attention, according to strict original recipes, by a top London chef, formerly of Covent Garden. And after you have sampled the spicy delights of your main course, you can select from a choice of original Indian sweets to temper your palate.
Relaxing in the comfortable surroundings of the restaurant, you can have a hot towel to freshen yourself or clean your fingers between courses – another touch of Indian living. The Gandhi Restaurant, situated at 139 Kingston Road, Portsmouth is fully licensed and open seven days a week. You can pop in for a traditional Indian lunch between 12 and 2.30 pm or enjoy a languid evening meal, when the restaurant is open from 6 pm to midnight.
But take care to book in advance, as demand for this cuisine is expected to be high, so avoid disappointment by telephoning Portsmouth 811966. As proof of confidence in your enjoyment, the Gandhi is offering a 10 per cent discount on the cost of your meal, when you produce this advertisement within three months of the opening.
