The lunch buffet is renowned in St. John's. Plan early if you are going. The food here is heavenly and if you choose from the regular menu you will not be disappointed. We went here on many occasions for lunch and supper and it truly is a wonderful food experience if you love Indian food and spice.

Went here for the lunch buffet and was very impressed with the flavour of dishes. Small selection to choose from, but the quality was fantastic.

Two years ago my wife and I spent six weeks in India. Our first time there. Our experience was wonderful and the food was wonderful. When we walked into this restaurant on Duckworth Street I was instantly re-living my experience in India. It was the aroma, the atmosphere, and the food that did it. They serve excellent Indian food. We... More

India Gate is definitely not the cheapest restaurant you could go to by far. But there's a good reason it costs so much - quality. I went here in January with my girlfriend and we had the butter chicken. This was very possibly the greatest meal I've ever had. Everything was absolutely delicious. I've only been once and it wasn't... More

Been to this restaurant a few times over the past couple of years and the food and service have always been good. This time a bunch of us went to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed. All dishes were good but I especially like the butter chicken. While the prices are not cheap, if the food and service remain... More

Dropped in for lunch without a reservation but the staff found a spot for the two of us after a short wait. The buffet menu is tasty and moderately spiced and priced. The evening menu at this restaurant contains dishes that can be served "Indian" hot. Only complaint is the tight spacing of the tables and tight access to the... More

We went to India Gate for the buffet lunch. The staff are friendly and the buffet is pleasant, with Tandoori Chicken, and assorted Indian standards. Everything is fresh, tasty and well prepared. For a more imaginative experience, I suggest the a la carte menu. There is also a take out service. I have ordered takeout on several occasions and have... More
