“Indian food with a twist”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is another one of St. John's busy restaurants, set a in the center of town on Duckworth Street. We didn't book a table so we had a few minutes to wait, but it was worth it. I ordered the chicken Madras, which was not the normal variety that I am used to but was really flavorful, with some good accompanying side garnishings to spice things up. The naan bread was crisp and hot, and not too large. The restaurant has a good atmosphere, with wooden tables and interesting decor.

“This place would go bust on main land”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I have been to India Gate a couple of times and each time I marvel how they survive despite hideous food which they sell as "Indian". If these guys were on main land they would have closed down long ago. The food is NOT Indian, its not tasty and its over priced. They are lucky to be in St John's where there is no competition and most folks wouldn't know what real curries are all about.

“Very good overall”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is as good as it gets in NL where good Indian food is hard to come by. Impressive quality but the dishes are not very generous. I would recommend this place as the only place to go in Newfoundland for decent Indian food.

“Best butter chicken ever!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

I've been around, I've eaten Idian food, but here is the best! Loved the inside and the atmosphere, really thimk you were in India without any cheezy decorations. A bit pricey for the portions, but worth it!
