Avoid this place at any cost. Dishonest owner. Understand they have lunch buffet hours. If I reach at almost end of the time, they may not be able to serve... Got it. On reaching there, The owner says take seat & start. On having a quick look at the self-service counter, I noticed most items are either finished or very... More

We have been to this restaurant for lunch while in Buffalo after reading all the positive reviews. Lunch buffet was very limited in dishes, more of veggies. Food had no taste, very stale and watery. Desserts were very poor - Gulab Jamun the famous Indian sweet was hard as rock. Custard milk (drink) was tasteless, tea was not hot. This... More

We were in the area and craved Indian food, so we stopped here for our fix. The service was great - our server was very friendly and explained every menu question we had. The restaurant is small, and lacked music or other ambient features. I will say I feel there needed to be another server as ours was the only... More

I went for dinner with 3 other people, & we shared a few appetizers, 4 meals, as well as 2 different breads, & everything was delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly & wonderful service, & a huge menu. This was our first time here, & I can't wait to come back soon!

I lived in Buffalo for over nine years and this was my go-to place, and every time I return to the area I have to stop in. The food is consistently very good (Paneer and Chicken Makhani are my favorites). If you time a visit during the summer, Shakespeare in Delaware Park is a short walk away (they do two... More

We were told that India Gate has "authentic" Indian food and I'm not sure if that was the difference or not but, boy, is this food good. My husband and I had a vegetable appetizer platter and two entrees -- all of it was spectacular! We have already recommended this restaurant to family and friends and will return soon.

Title says it all! The menu is huge, and has a ton of options for vegetarians which is great for me! So many different appetizers, and bread too. My only suggestion would be to make a vegetarian combination platter appetizer, because it was so hard to choose which one to get! They all looked so good. I ended up choosing... More

Having eaten Indian Food all over NY state, I had worst experience at this restaurant. Under Cooked food and stale sweet dish. Had to complain twice about the food. If any consolation the service was fast.
