The curry was spicy and that's the way I like it. I also liked the poppadoms and the naan bread. The best thing though was the rice.

Mixed tahli ordered and I was blown away by the quality and quantity, I apologised for not eating it all but it was enough for two! I will be back on my next visit and starve myself before to allow me to devour all on offer 👍👍👍👍

Popped in late on Saturday night (but just before the pub rush) and had a very tasty meal for a reasonable price. Decent menu to choose from and without knowing how hot the Chef cooks just had a king prawn jalfrezie with rice and sides. Tasty, filling and a draught beer all for £22. Very pleased.

The food was good, definitely. I had a chicken/pineapple dish that I'd definitely have again. We didn't have to wait long for it either. We were glad we had booked as it was full. There is no reception or waiting area and it's a long thin restaurant. The owners seemed happy for those who hadn't booked to wait down the... More

I enjoyed the Indian music playing and it made me want to be back in Jaipur or Delhi! Look forward to having a meal here... More

Whenever we visit Chester, which is several times a year on one of the evenings we just absolutely have to visit Gate of India. The service is excellent and the food fabulous and compared with some Indian restaurants in Solihull the portions are always too big and we struggle to finish the curry. How some people have starters which again... More
