Authentic decor, great friendly management and staff. GREAT INDIAN CUISINE! Only drawback is the lack of a bar, but other than that a super little restaurant. For Americans who are not familiar with Indian food this is a great place to start. Very comprehensive menu.

This place is fantastic. Everything is made to order. Fresh food, with spices running; mild, medium to hot. Large choice of dishes from India, plenty of vegetarian, and the best Naan in town.

Have had mixed experiences of Indian restaurants outside of the uk (as mad as that sounds!) but this is a gem The Onion Bhajis were the best I've ever had anywhere - and the rest of the menu is varied

We've been dedicated customers of Gateway to India for about 4 years. The Indian cuisine is superb, and the atmosphere is like being transported into India. The staff has become like family, headed by the Maitre'd, Monty. Or, as our 2 yr old daughter calls...More
