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 him, "Missah Montee!" Go, enjoy this wonderful restaurant, and find yourself returning weekly as we... More

We recently stayed @ St pete and looking at all the great reviews and ignoring the one written by RailWriters (Jan 28 2017) we took a shot I am big fan of trip advisor and i believe this is a platform which guides people to unknown destinations which is why i tried this place twice in my 4 days stay...

Gateway to India is hands down the best Indian food in town . I have tried quite a few places and I have not had better food elsewhere . My favorite is the chicken vindaloo and sexy naan. If you like Indian this is a great spot !

There are many vegetable dishes of course the standard like Dalli, and chicken Tandori, but one of my favorite items is the butter chicken. Then there is a variety of... More

Our group of 12 arrived for our reservation and were seated immediately in a separate dining room. Staff was very attentive, explaining details of the menu. Food took some time to arrive since everything was cooked to order. I had the lamb saad which was excellent. Garlic naan and mango ice cream completed the meal. If you aren't a regular... More

As both a chef and restaurant owner, I have been reviewing restaurants both professionally and non-professionally for years and this was one of the worst experiences I've had. I went for the lunch buffet that others seem to rave about. Let me set the scene for you...it was around 12:15pm, right at the height of lunch time and there were... More
