A group of us from work went to Gate of India last week for dinner. I had never been there before and I loved it. Truly, loved it!! I had the samosa (you get two, along with a sauce), which were just the right level of spice and the sauce was a bit sweet. For my meal, I had the... More

My girlfriend heard this place was the best for Indian food. We both agreed on the exact opposite. Butter chicken was more like sweet sauce leftover tandoori chicken. The other 4 dishes were also disappointing. We won't come back.

The staff are wonderful. The atmosphere is very peaceful. We have taken the family several times and have also had many romantic evenings here. The food is fresh and made to order. We highly recommend this family business!

While the Gate of India is perhaps not what it used to be, it's still decent. Went there just before Christmas with a colleague and enjoyed the dinner. My companion felt the naan was too thin and therefore a little over crispy, I like it like that! Baaji's and pakoras seemed a little mass produced but were tasty enough. Lamb... More

We went to Gate of India for a family dinner after hearing it had some of the best Indian food in Hamilton. Not true. The four of us ordered about 12 dishes all together, which came in the most bizarre order. The first series of plates brought to the table were a mixture of appetizers and entrees, plus all the...

Was there for a retirement dinner with coworkers. Arrangements had been made prior for a fixed menu served family style. Everything came out in a timely manner and was quite tasty. Everyone had a great time. Would recommend this restaurant.

I went for dinner with my wife on her birthday, we ordered Navratan Korma, Masala Bhindi, and Tadka Dal. It was the worst Dal I ever had, Korma was bad and only Bhindi was ok to eat. Don't try any of these things here.

Had my sister, her husband. my brother in law over for a visit and we were all craving indian food, so I told all about Gate of India and how much I like their food. The four of us went for dinner at 6 pm and we did not leave until 8:30 pm. We had 7 appetizers and 5 main... More

Started off with some Vegetable Pakora and they did not disappoint. For the price you get surprised by 8 bite size (one or two) they were perhaps a little 'floury' but still quite delicious! I got Veggie Korma and the Paneer with Peas as my main dishes (with rice and nan). Both were good, mild flavours; the korma had a... More

The food very good, lots to eat and not too expensive. Service is excellent. What else is there to say, worth a visit.
