Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went here on a Sunday evening which was handy because they do a Sunday Special (not advertised) of any starter, main and rice/naan for £14.95. Given that the curry I had was £12 on it's own this is obviously a great deal. And the...food was excellent. Service was also very good, possibly a little over attentive. They finished by offering us a final drink on the house, we had Baileys and brandy, and it wasn't watered down!More

None of the others have wowed us but India Gate after our second...visit I must say is the best in the area. Thank you India Gate for helping us find our weekly Indian go to. Will see you soon.

We make it a point to come here when visiting from the states. The food and staff are excellent. Even on a very busy night they had no issues with getting us seated and served. We've tried something different every time we've been and it's...always good. Definitely recommend to anyone in the area.More

We were staying at the camp site and the host recommended us India Gate. Glad we took the recommendation we booked a table. As it was last minute we turned up the restaurant was heaving with people. We had to wait 15 minutes before we...got a table but we can see why. Very Very busy on a Thursday night. The food was out of this world and we have been to a fair few Indians. This 100000% tops it. The service was very good even when the place was busy. I'm guessing it's the owner that came and had a chat with us very lovely person talking through how the restaurant started. What's a good sign is that there seem to be a large amount of regulars as the owner was going round talking to the tables. (Which you don't get these days. Overall amazing food and top service. We will be back in the summerMore

A group of 12 of us went here for my stag do. Ive been coming here with my family since I was very young around 20 years ago. The food and service never changes. So I decided I had to do my stag here as...I have been loyal to them for many years and they have looked after me and my family. My friends were from Chichester and some were from up north. All of our food was amazing and even the northerners were very impressed as it's hard to get something they like with the choices they got up there. Owner always top class and gave us shots at the end to round the night off. Will be back again with the family. Make sure you book as it's very popular.More

Not sure. I would find another restaurant. Dreadful food, so I would not trust them. Good luck
