India Gate has the best Indian food in St. John's hands-down. Their butter chicken meal is absolutely incredible. You have to make sure you try their Veggie Samosa's aswell, they're super tasty.

The Indian food was exceptional in some ways. Some of it was ordinary. The service was great. The staff are so friendly. Bring your wallet... the prices are way higher than it should be.

The food is good but pricey. The fact that it is downtown and has a great menu selection has kept it going for these many years.

I had a simple Chicken Tandoori to go, and as they are always busy, I was asked to wait - but they came through quickly and with a great meal! Also the 'dinner for two' to go is a pretty darn good feed for three!...More
