My husband & I go for Indian food a lot! And if we do- that's India Gate! The food is soooo fresh, clean, aromatic & the portions are perfect! The environment is beautiful & warming & people that work there- are such sweethearts! And when they ask how hot I want my chicken curry, and I say: "Medium ++", they... 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.

In the midst of packing for a big move we called a takeout order into India Gate. Though the food was good the appetizers seemed small and at the same time there was a great deal of rice. I would not recommend it.

Food was amazing; flavorful and the right amount/portions. Ordered: tandoori chicken, gobi alu, and chicken mushroom - cooked to perfection. The staff is attentive and quick to seat people waiting at the door. I was a bit surprise to see steady flow customers around 8:30 PM when they close at 10:30 PM; about 80% of the dining room occupied. Good... More

Me and my bf loved it here. We ordered the mixed platter and found the paneer and chicken to be a little on the dry and bland side, but the other appetisers on the plate were perfection. We got the Mater Paneer and the Chicken Makhani - the chicken dish was ordered medium. The meals came out with a complimentary... More
