How we started


Situated at 66 West Street, Gravesend, our building was formerly known as the Fishermans Arms, a public house established circa 1791. In 1996, and after a long 200 years of history, it closed its doors and opened as The Gandhi.

Bought by Sham and his brother, the Gandhi’s aim was to provide local residents a superior Indian Restaurant experience. Somewhere away from the late night pub client-tel that many local restaurants had been accustomed. The Gandhi was somewhere you could enjoy authentic Indian food with family and friends in a relaxed and cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Shortly after opening and due to demand the Gandhi offered a take away service to the same high standard as the restaurant had been delivering. In 2012 a FREE delivery service was introduced. The Gandhi found a market for outside catering and now provide food for a variety of events including corporate, family, quiz nights and even weddings.

Today the Gandhi is renowned locally as probably giving customers the finest Indian dining experience for miles around. They continually strive for perfection and work on new dishes to satisfy even the most discerning customer.

The Gandhi’s air conditioned Restaurant can seat 80 and is ideal for  intimate dining for two, up to large groups and parties.
