“Wanted it to be better than it was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

The lighting was very poor and the service varied (we were served by a couple of different people).

We were hoping for a great Indian feast, but it was average.

“Best curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The best curry I've had since living in London. I'm almost relieved to find it, as life without a proper curry is barely living.

“Delicious and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Food is delicious and not especially expensive. Portions are ample and service is impeccable. Only tricky thing was getting a baby buggy down the stairs but we managed.

“You go back for the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Having moved interstate we were missing our 'local' Indian take away shop when we came across the India Gate in Belgrave. We have eaten in the restaurant a few times and have also enjoyed quite a few take aways. The food is delicious, the staff very welcoming and accommodating. The decor is nothing exciting but its a great place to have a quick Indian meal before heading down the road to the cinema.

“Not what it used to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Since the change of management & chef this restaurant has been disappointing. I have been served half frozen patties and waited for half an hour after my husband received his food for mine to arrive as the order had been forgotten. This restaurant was once a jewel in the hills and is now a last resort.
