India Gate is definitely not the cheapest restaurant you could go to by far. But there's a good reason it costs so much - quality. I went here in January with my girlfriend and we had the butter chicken. This was very possibly the greatest meal I've ever had. Everything was absolutely delicious. I've only been once and it wasn't... More

Been to this restaurant a few times over the past couple of years and the food and service have always been good. This time a bunch of us went to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed. All dishes were good but I especially like the butter chicken. While the prices are not cheap, if the food and service remain... More

Dropped in for lunch without a reservation but the staff found a spot for the two of us after a short wait. The buffet menu is tasty and moderately spiced and priced. The evening menu at this restaurant contains dishes that can be served "Indian" hot. Only complaint is the tight spacing of the tables and tight access to the... More

We did take put. It seemed pricey but is ended up doing us for two meals. Hot hot beef, curry, butter chicken, rice and mulligatawny soup. Yum. Highly recommend.

We went to India Gate for the buffet lunch. The staff are friendly and the buffet is pleasant, with Tandoori Chicken, and assorted Indian standards. Everything is fresh, tasty and well prepared. For a more imaginative experience, I suggest the a la carte menu. There is also a take out service. I have ordered takeout on several occasions and have... More

The menu is a bit confusing but the wait staff both times I was there helped sort it out. It seems like there are several ways to order the same dish but at different prices. Service was very good, the food was good. We had our 4 year old grandson with us and I could not say enough about the... More

It was just as good as they told me it would be. Portions were large, service was excellent. Staff were very knowledgeable. Owners Bobby and Dave were both there and both took the time to chat and ask me where I was from. This is high end dining at modest prices

A colleague and I were looking for a tasty meal during a conference dinner break, and Indian food seemed like just the thing. We were there relatively early (5:00 pm, just after they opened) and we had the place to ourselves; needless to say the service was speedy and efficient - my colleague had seen a dish she really wanted,...

Visited for a birthday. Food was excellent. Warm and inviting restaurant. Friendly staff. Slightly above average prices. Food can be shared as portions are large. A thoroughly enjoyable evening!
