Best of all thou, the meal was really tasty and not 1 in our party but was disappointed. If you want a... More

Not the first time we have visited Gate of India. Returned on Thursday evening with colleagues from work because of our previous enjoyable experience. We took the decision to reserve a table earlier in the day, that was a shrewd move, the Gate was packed. As before the waiters and owners attention to our service and satisfaction was excellent, and... More

Stayed in the premier inn across the road and I noticed this little Indian restaurant. The premier inn has good standard food however I thought I would try this restaurant for a change. I went in and was seated straight away, the menu was reasonably priced and I ordered a mixed starter, a chicken tikka Bhuna chips and a nann... More

This is a really good Indian restaurant, we visited on a Monday night, very busy but plenty of staff and service was super quick on every course. Staff were excellent with good quality food and plenty of it, well worth a visit, we would definitely return again if in the town.

Was very busy on a Thursday night which was a good sign. Service was efficient if not overly friendly. Meal started well with 2 huge starters which were nice and lovely crispy poppadoms with dips and chillies. The main courses however were a major letdown. I had a lamb curry which should be chunks of tender near that are slowly... More

Visited Friday night the 17th March.Nice friendly staff in a pleasant atmosphere.Place was very busy but all food and drinks came without a long wait.Nice tasty curries and very good portions.Possibly a little more expensive than i pay at my local Indian,but the size of the meals reflects this.Will definitely visit again next time i'm in Chester.

Heard great things about the Gate of India. but unfortunately we were very disappointed. The service was very good and all staff who dealt with us were very helpful. However the food was very poor, fairly tasteless and not to a standard we have had in many other Indian restaurant's. Would not go again.

You know the score. Late evening on a Saturday...just approaching peak time where most of the town centre is on the prowl for a curry. Gate of India found us a table quickly and efficiently in their very busy main dining area. Service was good and I have to point you to the House Special Mixed Curry. I had it... More
