I went to India Gate for the first time two weeks ago. I ordered Shahi Paneer, which was advertised as chunks of cheese cooked in a rich gravy. What I got looked like blenderized tofu, no gravy, and no taste. I was completely disappointed. My companions ordered chicken, and told me that their food was bland and over-cooked.
The washroom was like going outside. The bathroom, painted canary yellow, has a door in the men's stall that only covers the small room from top to about 3 feet off the ground: just enough so that you can't see out, but just enough so that if someone walks into the washroom they have a complete view of you. The water was freezing.
The service was poor. The waiter looked like he wasn't even awake.
Food rating: 1. If there were a zero, I'd use it.
Service rating: 1. Again, so poor it's not worth discussing.
Value rating: 1. I was charged 15 dollars (before tax and tip) for a plate of over-cooked rice, frozen peas and blenderized something-or-other. Not worth it at any price, but certainly not for the price I paid.
Ambiance rating: 1, though could be a 2 if they were a little cleaner.
Basically, India Gate is a greasy spoon but the food isn't good enough to call it that. I won't be going back.
