My best friend growing up was Indian, so at an early age I learned to appreciate delicious homemade Indian food. India Gate hits the mark on most every front. Sauces are rich and tasty and everything is spiced very mildly unless you request otherwise The tandoori chicken was well flavoured but a little on the dry side. The butter chicken and curry chicken were melt-in-your-mouth delectable and featured chicken breast to appeal to Canadian and American tastes. The naan bread is perfectly prepared -- ask them not to cut it if you prefer it served whole as I do. The gulab jaman dessert was almost ideal, it just needed a little more sauce. The decor is fresh and modern, a pleasant change from the traditional Mexican style ubiquitous in PV. The staff are friendly and attentive and service is prompt. Sometimes the restaurant features a buffet-only dinner on Sunday evenings, so check ahead, as the quality and flavour of some of the dishes suffer as a result of their being prepared in advance and kept warm.

A block from the malecon, this quiet, intimate Indian restaurant was an unexpected highlight of P. Vallarta. We had 2 for 1 potato and ground beef samosa starters, a rich, delicious eggplant/tomato entree, naan, and a fabulous chicken korma. Service was good, portions just right, and the price amazingly low. We wish we could have gone back often to India Gate.

Went here on a Friday night with a group of 7 business colleagues. We went around 10 and the place was quite empty. Small but good menu, guess they believe in doing few but doing them right.

Samosas were good, Dal was decent; veggie was OK. The mistake I made was told him to make everything less spicy and so it came out bland. But overall it tasted good.

Smallish menu and portions, no added chutneys or salads, but everything is very tasty and authentic. Try the butter chicken. Good service.

Food and service were both excellent, there is a good varied menu choice with classic Indian dishes. Good atmosphere with typical Indian music ( a nice break from the loud 'American disco music' that seems to play in every other restaurant in PV)
Although the food was delicious the portions were too small! We had to order an extra dish at the end of our meal
We definitely recommend this place and we will definitely be back for more!
