More about Spice Gate, London

Whatever your occasion may be, whether a large group or small, it’s reassuring and really rather pleasant to have an Indian restaurant you can bank on. Spice Gate is just that. This London restaurant has a track record of keeping customers happy and coming back – Barnet locals in particular. The dining space on Friern Barnet Road is relaxed and welcoming and certainly has that quality restaurant vibe. You know, when you walk in and know before you’ve even sat down that the place is going to be good, just from the way the staff welcome you? Yeah, Spice Gate is a fine example of that.

Spice Gate showcases flavours from all over the Indian subcontinent in spectacular style that, as we said, make it immensely popular in Barnet and beyond. The chefs here are particularly skilled with the tandoori oven and some chef’s specialities include the jahlosa chicken prepared with plenty of cumin, mustard seed and black peppercorns, the dalcha gosht, a fiery lamb dish, and the fish baja, tilapia fillets in a thick sauce with a generous handful of curry leaves. To be honest, we wish there were more Indian restaurants in London like this one.
