“Lovely food”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Second time we have eaten here and not disappointed. I would agree with previous reviews that although the staff were friendly they did look a bit bored and stood around watching. The food was lovely, large portions and they very happily gave us our leftover nan and curries to take away. Good value and central location.

“Excellent Find!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We stumbled across this restaurant as we were looking for another Indian restaurant down the street... We decided that Gate of India looked better, so we gave it a shot. The food was excellent! The waiter gave us recommendations and was very friendly. If I ever am back in Chester, I will definitely go here again.

“GOOD CURRIES”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Came here with a small group last week and was very pleased with the food and the service. Poppadoms were fresh and we were given some free dips. I had the shashlik which was very good, plenty of chicken, peppers and onions and the salad and rice were both prepared well. I'd recommend.

“Ok but need to work on customer service”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

The food was OK but the way the staff slapped the food down on the table was very surly. We were a table of three and were ordering food and drinks. We had been drinking and it was late however this was our evening meal. The initial impression from the staff was that they deal with a lot of late night drunks and perhaps had mistaken our middle aged bunch for some of their regulars.

I selected a chickken tikka starter which was tasty enough. I took a main course from the specials which definitely had a taste of chicken stock cubes in the sauce. They did however make me a very nice chilli naan which wasn't on the menu so full marks there.

All in all, not an unpleasant meal and don't get me wrong, the staff weren't unpleasant or anything. They just gave the impression that they'd rather be doing something else.

“You Want Fabulous Asian Food?”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Been eating meals in their restaurant and takeaways from this establishment since 1972. Never had a poor meal to date. If you haven't eaten with them yet, you are missing out!
Try the Special Mixed Kebab as a starter followed by the mixed Thali with pillau rice. Unless there are more than two of you ane you are really big eaters two starters and the one main, possibly with a great Naan will be plenty.
