We went for lunch buffet in the month of June 2016. Some of the food items are very salty. There is no veg biryanis or chicken rice item. Dessert was now pudding.

Food is very good and the lunch buffet is priced well. I've been for lunch twice and the buffet included chicken tandori, naan, all of the typical chutneys and a number of other typical Indian dishes.

Food has stayed consistant of the last 5 years but ambience and facitlity needs attention. Sit in restaurant seems to have suffered in favor of take out trade.

When a friend suggested that our group of six have Indian food for lunch My wife and I were all for it. But when he said that he had been enjoying Gateway to India for over ten years I was anticipating a superior dining experience. Gateway to India exceeded my expectations by miles!! The atmosphere is comfortable and dignified. The... More

We have found that most of the buffet items at Gateway to India are TOO spicy hot... the hottest of any Indian buffet food we've ever eaten. (We've eaten at many Indian buffets in numerous cities and states.) The first time we thought it might be a fluke so we gave them a second chance. Again, the food was SO... More

Food was superb; service was good; atmosphere was average. The three of us shared a Vegetable Platter appetizer to start our dinner. Every item was perfectly prepared and all were flavored with different spices. Delicious! Our entrees were Shahi Paneer (creamy tomato cashew sauce), Butter chicken, and Chicken Tikka Massala. The Shahi Paneer and Tikka Massala were especially tasty. Again,... More

Amazing buffet, although a bit pricey. Well worth the money. Excellent staff, very polite and attentive. This is a family owned operation- and you can see the difference in the experience. Great selection on buffet- 2 meats, several lentil and veg dishes, bread, salad, and a dessert. Clean place. Family friendly.

My second visit. Everything I have had is new, flavorful, and not curry (although they have that, too). Amazing breads, too, and wonderful mango smoothy. Very healthful, too, and kids love it, as well. Lovely atmosphere and calm attentive service. Slam dunk.

We went for the lunch buffet. They had less offerings than other Indian lunch buffets we have visited, but what was there was tasty and well prepared. Today there was tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, vegetable korma, naan, biryani, and a few other dishes. The buffet was reasonably priced at $11.95 per person plus tax. It is not the cheapest... More
