“Consistently excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We have eaten here a number of times. We occasionally try other establishments, both in Lynn and when out on our travels, but nothing really comes close to the quality of the food here. You usually need to book, particularly on banquet nights, so do plan in advance if you can. All the staff are very friendly - even if it doesn't always show on their faces!!

“Best Indian restaurant in King’s Lynn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My son and his partner took my wife and me out for a meal to celebrate mother’s day and my birthday at the India Gate. The food was of a very high standard sizzling and hot and plenty of it, the staff were very helpful and polite.

The only problem was the tables close together and too small to accommodate all the dishes.

You can park on the road just outside the restaurant or in the multi-storey car park at the rear of the restaurant.

“Reality check....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Having read a few reviews on the India Gate, we decided to try this restaurant as we were in the area. When we arrived no tables were available [a good sign and it was very busy]. We were asked to return in 30 minutes, which we did. We assumed it was busy due to the Banqueting Menu available on Thursday and Friday nights. The restaurant itself is fairly small and tables close together. The lighting is very subdued. I found the food to be average. The tandoori starter portion was on the small side and the rice was dried out. Naan bread had too much oil on it and doughy. The curries were tasty however the meat portions in them were a little small. Staff however were very friendly and service very good.
