We have visited Gate of India on numerous occasions and I must say that we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and very well presented. The restaurant throughout the years managed to maintain a very high level of service. Ghosh and his team...are exceptional, they take care of each and every client. It's definitely worth a visit!More

We have just enjoyed a great lunch at gate of india. We have visited several times before and always had good service from ghosh and the others. This time due to covid restrictions the menu is reduced however we asked for the set menu that...we always had in the past and they still made it for us plus I wanted to change one of the dishes on the set menu but my husband didn't but ghosh still brought the dish I wanted to change extra and complimentary. Very good service and would recommend to anyone.More

Both my partner and I love Indian Food very much, we have dined in many different Indian restaurants all over the Island and had some very mixed feelings. I have yet to find a restaurant that is on the level of Gate of India, we've...never had one bad meal, we've tried the majority of the menu and its all of a very high standard, this is not a restaurant that cuts corners. When I compare my favourite dishes to those of other restaurants, they're simply in a league of their own, the explosion of flavour that can be found in Ghosh's food is like nothing else that I've tasted on this Island. The service and hospitality also leave nothing to desire. Well done keep up the good service.More

We loved every second of our dinner at Gate of India. All the veggie curries we tried were exceptionally tasty, rice and naan were fresh and delicious. Staff was very attentive and friendly. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was very cozy and peaceful. Definitely...recommend this place if you're looking for an authentic Indian food!More

We have eaten here many times. It is always exceptional. Ghosh, the manager, prides himself on trying to keep clients happy. If ever my curry is too hot he always wants to know and will happily replace it or cool it down. He takes it...personally if we do not enjoy our meal. Him and his staff are always attentive. 5 stars :).More

We dined here a few days ago to celebrate a special occasion. Even though we made a reservation, it seemed they were not expecting us. The manager seemed extremely rushed all evening, it took over half an hour to take our orders and similar time...to wait between courses. The manager practically slammed our glasses of water on the table, spilling the water and wine in his haste. The food itself was OK, but the service was very, very poor. We won't go back.More

Do you like authentic Indian Food? Then you found the Place to be. What you get is high Quality Indian Food, but be aware, if they say "Hot" it is "Hot". If its your first Visit by an authentic Indian, ask them, they will kindly...explain. Cant wait to return. Cheers OliverMore

As a resident in Malta I visit this restaurant on a regular basis, the food is the best on the island, I generally have a chicken based curry and the meat is so tender, they will make the curry as spicy as you want. The...staff are mega friendly and it’s all set in a great environment. If you enjoy good authentic Indian food then this is the place for you!!More

If you go down touristi street, turn left opposite the big church. The name of the road opposite is Annetto Caruana. Gate of India is just past miracles. Well worth a visit if you can find it. If not, just stop someone and... More
