Great food as ever. It was busy so service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry.
But this is by far our favourite for the quality of food, even down to the naan bread. Fantastic.

Already planning on returning. The food was exceptional, my duck was sumptuous and lighty spiced so not over shadowing the natural flavours, my friend had a spicy chicken jalfrazee and was v impressed, the sides (dahl) were beautiful and portion size great value for money. Service very good, attentive but not OTT. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed a delicious meal. Really lovely staff and excellent customer service. I'd highly recommend India Gate and will definitely visit again.
I've found it difficult to find good well established restaurants in Forest Hill owned by chefs or people with experience of running restaurants as opposed to those that are just trying their hand at the restaurant business which is common in this area in my view.
I got the impression that the team at India gate are well trained and have had experience of working in different parts of the world.
I'm very pleased to have discovered them!

Service was very slow but I appreciate that it was a Friday evening, however, it's a small restaurant and waited over 45mins for two dishes. The food was delicious when it did come. Lamb cooked to perfection. Would come again.

Really lovely Indian food. I had the chilli paneer to start with followed by the spinach balls stuffed with cottage cheese. Both were delicious. I can't wait to come back again.

Great Indian/Nepalese restaurant. Starters, mains and a decent bottle of unoaked Chardonnay for £30 a head = very good value. Scallops were a highlight.

We had a great evening however the information I put on the booking about it being Birthday and wanted to know if they did cake or anything for an occasion and the fact that I had a taste card was overlooked! The lady who served us was lovely and when I told her we had a taste card she told me that that information had not been passed on and only that there was a booking for 4. Would have liked to have had a birthday extra offered, or pre-arranged.

Poor experience ,poor service ,poor food sums it up
Worst thing was being handed the bill without asking when we finished our main course
No sweet menu but not asked if we wanted anything else

Whoops. Staff were having a bad hair day. Kitchen staff could be heard shouting from our table!
Starters came after an hours wait as we were about to leave. Given to wrong table.
Main came with burnt green beans, allegedly black by soy sauce!
Waiters didn't rectify matters as they became aware of issues which is a learning curve for them.
Hopefully new guests won't experience the same thing.

I've eaten here before and always enjoyed it. This time however the meal was a bit disappointing. I ordered the chicken hyderbadi. It lacked flavour and was basically some chicken in tomato sauce. The onion bhajis were over done, lamb chops - meat less, and mushrooms in the mushroom rice were over cooked.

On the over had my partner really enjoyed her lamb saag.

Then to top it off we were overcharged.

We had a late supper here as they were able to accomodate us for a 10.30 booking. We had two courses each which was excellent value with TT deal. Particular mention should be made for the lamb momo's which are a regional nepalese speciality rather like dim sum. Delicious.

Love these guys. Excellent food, super friendly and great to get the open table 50% off food offer. Was very very busy as was Friday night, so food and service was very slow but we were given a free round of beers as sorry so all was fine. We were in no rush so didn't mind anyway.

We wanted to entertain four friends from Nepal who were staying locally and, not knowing the area myself, I found this restaurant online. I was slightly hesitant at taking Nepali natives to an English 'Nepali' restaurant, but they assured me that the food was very authentic and delicious. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, and they coped admirably with our three year old. The online voucher for 50% off the cost of the food was just the icing on the cake which made it wonderful value, but the prices were very reasonable anyway for the quality and quantity of the food. Thank you for a truly memorable evening!

Very yummy, good sized portions and with a 50% off food it was a bargain! However note that you only get 50% off food if you order two starters and mains. Open table does not clearly state that.

I had to change my eating time twice on the night because of train delays and they we're very nice and accommodating. Especially good seen as I've booked via Opentable. Food is always top notch. Very tasty. the Lamb Bhuna main brilliant and the king prawn starter was spicy but top! Service excellent, they're v.friendly and with a 50% off mains, it's great value!

We booked this on the 50% off offer. The made the starters (lamb chops and vegetable pakora) could value as both where well cooked and the chops in particular were delicious. However, the main courses were average at best and the same could be said for that of our friend who joined us mid-meal.

We were allowed to choose where we wanted to sit, which was nice. We were very impressed with the service and the range of dishes on the menu. The quality of food and the presentation, particularly of the starters, was very good. We will certainly be going back there.

We had dinner here on the deal, it was all good and the service was good too. The only issue was that the restaurant was a bit chilly for some reason. I'd go back though.
