This place is a hidden gem! From the street, when you pass the Gandhi sign, this place doesn't seem inviting at all. Please ignore the first impression and enter the restaurant. It's in many ways like entering Mother India herself, and we were thrown back...More

Food is great here!!! The best part is the location. It is near to the central station and it is open in noon as well. The masala chai here is too good. An indian chai lover should not miss this.

The food served here was very tasty and filling. I like mine spicy and hot, they didn`t disappoint, I had tears, LOL The staff was helpful explaining different dishes. I would give Gandhi a visit again

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
