Always the same, amazing food, warm service and cozy, atmosphere. Great for one person, romantic dinner for two or a family night out.

Good portion size, but poor flavour! I didn't really noticed any flavour on the chicken, and the garlic naan looked/tasted more like old plain naan. Not the best Indian food!

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!

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...More

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.
