My wife and I are frequent flyers at India Gate both dine in and take out. Everything on the menu is great, we particularly like the samosas, butter chicken, chicken korma, lamb vindaloo, beef jalfrezi, and of course naan. Although we use the take-out options more now with kids (who also love it), it is still great. We make our... More

My very first Time at the lovely place was 12 years ago, First I thought that It would be hot and I was not sure about the taste of curry so I was not expecting much and thought it would be my last. My first impression was the smell and how all the different flavours came together as I entered... More

India Gate has been around forever, and there's a reason for that - the food is mouthwatering and delicious. Their samosas are huge and crispy with tender, flavourful filling. The butter chicken special is great bang for your buck. I usually do take-out here, as the dining area is being restored after a recent fire in the building, but once... More

Unfortunately as of this date, the restaurant has been closed for a couple of months due to a kitchen fire. That said, when I lived in this city I ate here all the time. Some of the best Indian food I have ever eaten. The date when they will open back up is uncertain but if it is open when... More

We went there for a work related lunch and had a buffet of Indian food that was second to none. The buffet was hot and had a large selection. There were many meat choices as well as vegetarian based. I enjoyed the curry chicken the best. The staff are friendly and abiding. The only negative was that the prices were... More

Loved the food. I'd call myself a connoisseur of Indian food -- I've had it all over the world including loads in India, and Vij's in Vancouver, and every place you can think of in Toronto. I was SO surprised to find this little outpost in St. John's with delicious, flavourful, fresh and interesting food. It was mouthwateringly good. Yes,... More

The lunch buffet is renowned in St. John's. Plan early if you are going. The food here is heavenly and if you choose from the regular menu you will not be disappointed. We went here on many occasions for lunch and supper and it truly is a wonderful food experience if you love Indian food and spice.
