We were just looking at the outside menu, when one of the staff noticed us and encouraged us to come in and sit down. Nice touch because we ended up ordering and no regrets about that! Tasty food and good service.

Description
Twice voted as one of the top 100 Indian restaurants in the UK by the British Curry Awards, the Castle Gate has secured its place as one of the most popular Indian restaurants in South Wales.

Situated in the historic fortress town of Caerphilly just a few miles north of Cardiff, Castle Gate offers an extensive range of award-winning, authentic Indian cuisine served by staff trained to ensure your dining experience is second to none! Avoid the problem of parking too. Castle Gate has ample parking for 50 cars or more, so visiting couldn't be easier. Whether you are planning an intimate meal for two, or a group booking for 80 people, Castle Gate is the perfect choice!

It's no wonder the South Wales Echo described a meal at the Castle Gate Restaurant as "A thoroughly enjoyable experience!"
