Worth a try

My first visit and I was impressed. Usual standard curries on offer but also a good selection of specialty dishes. Staff were friendly and attentive. Competitively priced. Will visit again.

Nice restaurant, lots of seating, never had a problem getting / booking a table. Typical Indian restaurant menu with some interesting chefs specials. Food has always been fresh and tasty. Staff are friendly and the service is good. We have often been given discount vouchers for the next visit which is a nice incentive to return. Our Indian Restaurant of... More

A group of us went to the Barry Gate to celebrate a birthday. We were asked to go to the counter to order our drinks - strange as this is supposed to be a restaurant. I ordered a pint of cider which was duly dispensed from a plastic flagon bottle. The price .. £ 4:00, 'crazy'. We then ordered our... More

Visited during a busy period - all tables were full. We were not offered drinks, and had to go up to the counter after almost an hour to ask if we could order starters. All our food took a long time to arrive. Our fellow diners were complaining about the wait too. There were no apologies for the poor service.... More

Have revisited on 3 occasions since my last review. I believe it is now under new management. Food was great. I'm currently hooked on the Chicken Lalwala. Very moreish. Didn't have to wait ages and service was fine. Have been with 7 friends and other couples. No one had any complaints. Would certainly now recommend the Barry Gate.

I cannot believe what I have just witnessed! Sitting in my sister's lounge I had the misfortune to over hear a phone conversation, a completely one sided conversation I hasten to add. Only the other day my sister had ordered a takeaway from this restaraunt only to find that there is a huge difference in quality between what they serve... More

Do you expect the same quality of ingredients and food in your takeaway ? I do . we have sat down and eaten very pleasant meals so feeling like a decent takeaway I ordered our meal to be delivered as we had no baby sitter . On opening my delivered cartons I discovered my chappati was a nice Pataks special... More

Had a meal here for first time this week despite living in area for some years. The restaurant is pleasant, the food was excellent, staff polite and attentive but gave us plenty of time between courses. The menu had some dishes we haven't heard of before as well as the more typical cuisine you might expect. We will definitely be... More

Six of us booked a table and turned up a little early. No problem. We ordered and were pleased that courses didn't come straight after each other as it gave us time to digest, have a beer and a catch up. We all enjoyed all the courses we were given and the staff were super friendly. I will certainly be... More
