The new owners (since April 2014) have really turned this place around. We tried it yesterday evening and we happily discovered that it now serves very nice, non-greasy, fresh-tasting food. It provides very polite and attentive service. A real gem of a restaurant in Forest Hill. Although the menu does all sort of typical Indian food, I understand the chef... More

Recently moved into the area and missing our local restaurant (Gurkha in Balham), we were looking for a good curry house. After being disappointed with the other well-rated places in the neighbourhood we tried India Gate - total revelation. Superb food and wonderful service from the manager who replaced the only dish we found slightly disappointing (nothing wrong with it... More

The manager and staff are very friendly... More

On the off chance I visited India Gate earlier this month for the first time. Rather than choose from the options on the menu, I asked the waiter to recommend a main dish to me and told him the meat and level of spice I wanted. While we were waiting for our meals, we were served with a complementary chaat... More

We came across the India gate by accident and can honestly say we are so glad we did from the moment we walked through the door to the time we left we were treated to a first class service, the mixed tandoori and dal curry were very good indeed. We understand this establishment is under new management and we heard... More

In honesty the food was alright, (a typical takeaway), however the people who work here are so rude it was a bit shocking! They only managed to deliver half our order as the delivery driver forgot to pick up a bag from the order from the restaurant...to make matters worse they then said they'd have to deliver the second half...

Came here with a group of friends last weekend. You can watch your food being prepared on the big screen which was interesting and rather unique. Owner was great - chatty and interesting. I had the "India Gate Specials" for both starter and main and found both dishes to be exceptionally salty. May go again and try something else in... More

Sought this restaurant after hearing about the televised preparation of the meal. Although nice, we found it too salty and oily for our palate. Free dessert and bill on cheap side. Delicate balance between quality of food and the price. We would rather have a better Indian dinner overall.

We found the India Gate staff very pleasant to deal with and the price with the 20% offer was low, and it was served quickly and very hot, but we found that the food itself was really not good. The meat was tough and the vegetables in the veg curry had a distinct taste and look of canned carrots (cut... More

Just happened to notice the place while heading for the Chinese opposite. Lucky we did. We were half worried when the menu advised that everything was cooked from fresh so we shouldn't be expecting a quick service. This was not a problem as we were mesmerised by the TV screens of the kitchen showing our meal being cooked. The food... More
