Every single item on the non-veg thali I had for lunch was delicious!! Dal, chole, chicken tikka masala, tandoori drumstick, naan, samosa, rice and rice pudding - a large amount of food for the price. I would go back!

Food: Samosas (above average) Daal Makhani (highly recommended) Kadhai Paneer (pretty good) Tandoori Roti (a bit too dry/crispy—should’ve been much more soft) Service: Owners are couple. Very nice folks, great attentive service. Ambience: Non-descript but clean and tidy Overall: I’m from San Francisco bay area where there are tons of great indian restaurants. We went here without any preconceived notions and were quite pleasantly surprised. Highly recommended and definitely will come again

The food here is amazing. I often order India Gate through Uber Eats and have never been disappointed. The rice is flavorful and even tastes amazing on its own. The butter chicken is my favorite dish here. Tender chicken and flavorful curry. I just tried the samosas, and they were very fresh. This is my go-to spot for Indian food in Durham!

This was by far the best Indian food. The samosas were the most flavorful I’ve ever eaten, better than when I was in India. Every dish was delicious. This family owned and run restaurant is top notch. In our party we had a vegetarian and someone that has dairy and nut allergies; both had plenty of options on the menu and everything was clearly labeled for them. We will definitely be back!

This seems to be a mostly takeout restaurant, at least for dinner. Paneer pakora was fine, garlic naan was excellent, baingan bhartha was very tasty and just enough spice when ordered at the medium level.

I stopped by India Gate at the new location for the first time to scratch an itch for Indian food. I was surprised and disappointed by the low budget decor. While I had not been to the previous location , I expected to walk into a fairly nice restaurant. Its definitely not a date night spot, more like a quick lunch or take out spot. However the smell of delicious food kept me interested. The service was very good, pleasant, attentive, and friendly. When I got my meal home and dug in I was very pleased. My meal was flavorful and fresh, and the dinner portion was good. I will definitely be back for takeout!

Absolutely delicious food! From the pakora to the vindaloo, you cannot go wrong. You gotta get the garlic naan. Nice folks. Very reasonable prices. We were customers at their old location. Fortunately for us, they have moved closer to our house. In the same shopping center as Bean Traders and Sprouts now. Stop by and show some love for local business!

We've dined in at India Gate twice. Both meals were delicious -- fresh and well spiced. We have vegetarian and meat eaters and everybody was happy. We've always had enough to save for lunch or dinner the next day. The staff are kind and the pace of our dinner was great -- not to slow and not rushed. We'll definitely be back!

Went to the new location for lunch yesterday. If you frequented the old one, you'll be comforted by the familiar atmosphere when you walk in, as the decor and music is very much the same. The service was lovely as always. They no longer do a lunch buffet but instead a lunch combo that has a little bit of everything. This platter is a LOT of food, a very good value at $14. They also offer a vegetarian version. Everything tasted amazing. We'll be back!

Best Indian restaurant in the immediate area, both at their old and new locations. They spice and flavor the rice rather than give basic white rice with the entrees. Never disappointed when I decide to try a dish I haven't tried before. Butter chicken is delicious and comparable to what I had in Delhi

India Gate had really good food before they changed locations. Somehow they have managed to improve with the move to the new location! They make great quality food at a reasonable price!
