Visited Indian Gate Friday 11th July 2014 and booked for 7.15pm, took almost two hours to receive out starter which would of took longer if I didn't go and ask where it was! Our party wasn't the only ones to wait longer than expected
The staff were not very polite and seemed quite miserable and never apologised for the food being served late.
When we received the bill and paid I then realised that the bill was much higher than it should be, other items were added on without our knowledge. I discussed this with the man on the front desk who at no point would make a refund.
Have been to this restaurant a number of times over the past 10 plus years but never again, I live in Kings Lynn and will always use another Indian Restaurant.

The special Indian fried chicken is absolutely delish. I have it every time, its a cross between chinese chicken balls and deep fried tandoori. V special.

Expensive and average Indian food from my first trip to King's Lynn. Never returned and unlikely to return after this experience

I ate here last night as a family group of 6. We booked for 7pm and managed to get our table straight away (unlike the other two groups of people) after being seated we had to ask 3-4 times for drinks. Our drinks finally arrived but then took 35 minutes for our food order to be taken, again after asking 2-3 times! Our food order was taken but After 2 hours of waiting and asking 3 different members of staff where our food was it finally arrived!! The food was poor! 3 or 4 chunks of chicken in each chicken dish, 3 small butterflied prawns in a king prawn dish?! Very overpriced for what you get and after the wait we had it was very disappointing. Will not return!

The restaurant was recommended and the food was average to good Indian food. The service was inattentive and slow.
