I ate here for the first time and had a wonderful evening meal. Our group of three had four separate dishes and shared everything. Every single dish, including the rice and naan bread was delicious. Some of the best Indian food I have ever had. The price was very reasonable considering the amount of food we had, and the quality.... More

The service is excellent and the food is the best !! I have never had better food anywhere !! Indian or not. You will not be disappointed. From the butter chicken to the naan bread it is fresh hot and very tasty. By far the best place to eat in St. John's NL.

What's not to like about India Gate? Excellent selection of dishes, fast, friendly service and tasty, authentic Indian dishes. We have eaten at some of the highest rated Indian restaurants in Toronto, Quebec City, Halifax and elsewhere, and none compare to India Gate.

I really enjoy the lunch buffet here, the price is good and I really enjoy the selection of different flavors. I have also eaten here for supper and it is a little more costly, although it is definitely worth it.

This was our first time eating at an Indian restaurant. It was fantastic. Since none of use had tried it before, we all got the Tandoori Platter which had five different foods to try (naan, lamb in a curry, tomato sauce, tandoori chicken (tasted like it just came off a BBQ), cooling salad, and delicious rice with raisins, cashews, and...

This is one of my favorite resturants in St. John's and has been for years. In fact I have eaten here twice in the last week! The food is top-notch. I would reccommend the butter chicken, the tandoori chicken and the samosas. I have always found the service to be prompt and professional. My only complaint is that the price... More

My wife and I visit at least every couple of months. The food is delicious and always hot. We recommend the dinner for two with samosas, butter chicken, beef jalfrezi and veg korma. Service is always excellent with a truly professional wait staff many of whom have been there for years.

Well, I guess you have to like Indian food to eat here, but if you do, you're in for a treat! The atmosphere, service and food are all second to none, and for a higher end restaurant, the prices are great as well! The servers are all very knowledgeable about the menu, and are great with helping you decide, if... More

I have made four attempts to determine whether I can safely eat at India Gate, since many friends and family have given the food glowing reviews. I have called-at times when it is quiet at the restaurant-to have my question about the ingredient to which I have an allergy dismissed out of hand. "We don't have an ingredient list or... More
