This restaurant was recommended to us by "locals" whilst we were staying in Market Rasen, & you can't get better recommendation than that!
The service was top class, as we were quickly shown to our table, with a drink, and our food was delivered quickly, beautifully hot & tasty, & plenty of it!
The restaurant has lots of staff so even larger parties are managed efficiently.

We decided to order a set meal for 2, but asked to change one of the main meals. This was no problem at all. The portions were very good value for money, in fact we were sorry that we could not manage all of it, not even dessert or coffee!

The restaurant is nicely decorated, tables are well spaced, & table linen, plates etc. all have the restaurant's personal logo so look professional. A waiter even held the door as we left.

Well worth a visit, but advise that you ring to book a table because this is loved by the locals too!

The food was excellent and so was the service and atmosphere. This is one of the finest Indian restaurants we have tried (and we've tried a lot!).

We ate here because of a friend's recommendation, but won't be returning. Maybe the restaurant was having a bad day, but the food wasn't very good and the service was slow and generally careless. The decor was a bit shabby and, I'm sorry to say, felt a little grubby. As other reviews have pointed out, the place is cramped with too many tables squeezed in. Not worth the journey.

My husband and I have eaten here several times over the last few years. It has never been horrendous before, but I wouldn't say it was anything special either! The decor is outdated and feels grubby. The food has always been edible but rather tasteless. The layout of the 'restaurant' makes you feel like sardines in a tin and there is a general school canteen feel to the place.

This latest visit will be our last though! The service has gone downhill. The attentive, friendly atmosphere has been replaced with an aloof carelessness. I have to conclude that 'The Gate' has run its course, if you're looking for a more pleasant dining experience, try 'The Advocate' or 'The Red Lion'. Good experiences of both of these eateries recently.
