Nice Indian food and good portion size and price. Good atmosphere and nice staff. Recommend if you fancy Indian food in Arundel. Apparently it gets quite busy on weekends - we ate late and got a table. Advised to book.

During an night at the restaurant, a group of seven ladies, including one child of fourteen, were subjected to a most horrifying experience, from which the child was deeply traumatised. On arriving we were placed on a table in the upstairs section of the restaurant, along with other male diners. A stag party arrived of around 20 males, who had clearly been drinking before hand. We were approached by one member of the party and were informed that some 'entertainment' would be arriving. Shortly after a lady arrived dressed as a police woman, who proceeded to dance erotically and remove all of her clothes, and commit some most disturbing lewd acts with the men. They did partially try to shield us from view, but most unfortunately without success! We found ourselves stuck at the table unable to leave as in doing so the child would have been traumatised even further by seeing the dreadful spectacle that was taking place. The waiters and even the chef appeared also to watch the show! At no time were we warned that such a terrible act would take place otherwise we would most certainly would have left. Furthermore, at no time did any of the restaurant staff approach us to warn us of the imminent event and give us the choice to relocate to another part of the restaurant. Instead they clearly enjoyed the show and showed not regard to their other customers wellbeing. On contacting the Manager an extremely weak apology was given which is highly unsatisfactory and does not assist the child who at the tender age of 14 was subjected to an horrific experience that she will never be able to forget. WE WILL CERTAINLY NEVER VISIT THE RESTAURANT AGAIN AND I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE PLANNING TO GO THERE WITH CHILDREN THINK AGAIN YOU MAY BE SUBJECTED TO A HORROR THAT YOU WILL NEVER FORGET! The restaurant has been reported to the Police Licensing Department to take further action!

Good service - even though the place was very busy on a Saturday night.

Food was very good. I ordered a flambe dish and they lit as they brought it to my table. The 2 foot (I don't exaggerate) flame brought stares from the whole restaurant, so might be one to avoid if you don't like being the center of attention.

Price was reasonable given the quality of the food - £20-30 per head with starters and drinks.

Very pleasant, busy on a Saturday night even at 6pm. Food was very tasty, but don't order the flambe dish unless you enjoy being the centre of attention! Enjoyed the music, but there were others complaining it was loud. Deserved to be busy and buzzing atmosphere.

We've been to India Gate twice now. We stumbled upon it by accident, late one Sunday evening, and weren't expecting very much. We are both vegetarians, so we ordered a selection of sides, starters and mains. Unlike many Indian meals we've had, the dishes were very distinct from each other, weren't drowned in oil, weren't overly sweet or salty, and were extremely tasty. The waiters did everything they could to make our evening enjoyable, and they did. We'd certainly go back again. It's made us excited about Indian food again.
