For the price you pay the quality and quantity both are lacking. The food was very average in taste. The staff started packing when half the patrons were still eating. Very poor we thought

It was one of the few places open on Christmas Day. The boys ordered butter chicken and naan (surprise). They liked it. We had "black pepper chicken tikka" and "chicken saagwala" with wholemeal lacha pratha. The pratha could have done with a wee more cooking. The only other down side was the wait between the chicken and the breads. The... More

Thanks Rohit for your feedback and 5 star rating for India Gate Restaurant Epsom. We will check why it took longer for Naan while chicken was already served. Generally mains and bread served same time unless If it's running order. Hope to serve even better next time. Team India Gate More

Came in the spur of the moment after movies at the Lido. Had a previous recommendation and it was relatively quiet on a Sunday night. Staff fairly attentive and our order was taken with some doubt in our minds that the nice, but a bit preoccupied and quiet waitress, had in fact got the details. All was in order with... More

Hi Joanne, Thanks for positive feedback. And yes we do pride ourselves on delivering authentic Indian food, hence why we don't add excessive cream and sugar to our curries giving them a slight of a spicy edge. Will look forward to having you back with family & friends. More

We stopped here as we had heard great things. I asked for 2 curries and asked for them to be mild. The curries were fantastic but along way from mild, I would say at least medium. When I asked the waitress she said 'our mild is most people's medium'. Well that would have been useful to know when ordering. Our... More

Honestly I couldn't fault it! The price is great, the food tasted good and the staff were friendly and efficient! It has a really authentic feel if you want to dine in but the takeaway menu was also great! I will definitely be going back next time I want an Indian!
