"The india gate" is a leading Indian Takeaway in Forest Hill, SE23 in London. Indian food is delivered straight to your door when you order online from us. India Gate serves traditional & authentic dishes, created by our chefs, using only the finest fresh herbs & spices. Fancy something a little different to your usual Chicken Korma then look at the Chef'Special option and plump for one of these maybe such as Lamb Bhutuwa a medium strength dish consisting of lamb cooked with Nepalese herbs & tomato & onion with spring onion. You choose, we cook & deliver. "YOU CAN WATCH OUR CHEFS COOKING LIVE THROUGH CCTV WHILE YOU WAIT FOR YOUR MEAL"
