“Gateway of India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Had 2 meals here so far this trip, 8 people each time and thoroughly enjoyed it. My meal first visit was spicy Rogan Josh, excellent with the best garlic Naan bread, second visit tried medium and not as nice as spicy but still really nice, will stick to spicy in future. Would recommend this restaurant for the food.

“Filthy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The food is reasonable at the Gateway - although not fantastic. Good variety of dishes and relatively cheap. Standard Indian fare.

But I cannot recommend this restaurant. I have lived in Asia for 25 years and the toilet at the Gateway would still make my list of "Top Ten Filthiest Toilets in Asia." I have dined in the Gateway several times mover the past 8 years - about once a year on average - always wondering if the toilet will have been cleaned or repaired since my last visit. It has not.

Any restaurant that fails to repair/ clean a toilet in 8 years does not deserve to be visited. One can only wonder what the hygiene is like in the kitchen if they would allow their bathrooms to be in such a sorry state.

“Tasty alternative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

After trying local dishes most nights, we thought we would try an Indian to break it up a bit and we are glad we did. All dishes were very tasty, but the aloo tikki was fantastic. We went for medium spiced curries and the only criticism is they lacked a bit of punch compared to what we would class as medium.

“Horrible Food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We tried vegetarian food at Sanur Bali and really were very disappointed, if this is what they sale as Indian Vegetarian Food, I really pity on people who eat it. People who are new to Vegetarian Indian food, please do not visit this place, that is not The Indian food at all!
