My uncle took me out for a rather fine North Indian meal last night. The venue was India Gate which is a Northern Sub Continental restaurant which served top quality food authentic Northern Indian/Nepalese food.
History of the real India Gate in Delhi is below:The Delhi Memorial (India Gate) stands at the eastern end of the Rajpath, or Kingsway.
Of the 13,300 Commonwealth servicemen commemorated by name on the memorial, just over 1,000 lie in cemeteries to the west of the River Indus, where maintenance was not possible. The remainder died in fighting on or beyond the North West Frontier and during the Third Afghan War, and have no known grave.
The Delhi Memorial also acts as a national memorial to all the 70,000 soldiers of undivided India who died during the years 1914-1921, the majority of whom are commemorated by name outside the confines of India.
The memorial was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. It was unveiled by Lord Irwin on 12 February 1931.
Our visit just so coincided with my 1007 th blog follower (51,500 views, 30,900 views and 744 blogs) and my 600,000th reader on Tripadvisor (1072 reviews) so a big thanx and keep it up!!!!
For starters we had popadoms and chutneys, then a mixed non veg platter containing chicken lollipop, chicken tikka and chicken pakora, served with a red onion sauce and salad-an amazing start!!
For mains my uncle chose his favourite chicken saag and buttered nan, whilst I wanted spicy chicken Nagaland with pilau rice and keema nan. All the food was perfectly cooked and presented and tasted just like we would make at home. I would have liked the Nagaland to be hotter (spice wise).
All said it was a superb meal and we both left very happy and satisfied. Do give them a try!!
