“"Fabulous"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We love to eat at Indiagate. The food quality and Service was fabulous. All staff is very attentive and polite. The atmosphere was really good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to every one. Don't forgate to book at weekends though.

“Style without substance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Disappointed with take away that had very little in the way of flavour no evidence of the contemporary take on classic cuisine instead cheap soggy soupy veg, greasy rice too much ghee and not enough whizz.. spices flavour seasoning all notable by their absence.. A classic biryani sadly replaced by an imposter... sorry folks won't be back

“One of the best Indians I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Tried India Gate on our getaway to the Lakes and after reading some fab reviews and cannot fault it. The mixed starter was incredibly tasty and the chicken used in our curries were big strips never mind chunks! You definitely weren't ripped off. The drink prices were very reasonable and our overall bill was very reasonable for such a fab meal, if we ever come back to Penrith we shall be back.

We were a large gathering of 30 and had pre-ordered our individual meals and extras the day before. All food was excellent and served very quickly. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made our evening very pleasant and relaxed. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best Indian in Penrith”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Would definitely recommend this restaurant for anybody who enjoys fabulous Indian cuisine. We have dined at all the Indian restaurants in Penrith but this is the best by far. My mixed kebab starter followed by lamb tikka balti were superb, all cooked to perfection. From start to finish, the food and service was of a very high standard. The table cloths and napkins were immaculate. The staff and owner worked really hard all evening because it was so busy but still made time to speak to customers.
