I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
Tasty traditional Indian delights can be consumed at Gandha's Indian Restaurant. Established in 1986, Gandha's is reputedly the oldest and longest standing Indian restaurant of the Newcastle/Hunter region.
The menu is full of spicy delights from the different regions of India and has plenty of options for vegetarians, All the meals are freshly cooked and they do a roaring trade in takeaways. The samosas were tender and flavoursome and the accompanying coriander sauce added an extra taste dimension.
Eating in is a friendly, casual experience and you are welcome to byo alcohol. The proprietor is is very hospitable and is happy to suggest options and explain the various dishes. All of the curries we tried were delicious with complex spice flavours, the goat curry was particularly good with the tender meat falling off the bone.
