I really enjoy this place and try to make an effort to grab takeout from here once a month or so. Great vegetarian options.

Our favorite Indian food in Durham. The food is consistently delicious and high-quality, and the family who owns this restaurant is so lovely and kind. They always remember us and are truly part of the neighborhood and our community. We love the pakora, chicken tikka masala, palak paneer, naan and chicken korma.

We've tried most Indian restaurants in our area and this is by far our favorite one . The Chicken Vindaloo is my husband's favorite while mine include the Palak Paneer and Aloo Tikki appetizer. Their rice also has amazing flavor .The buffet is also delicious and take out is speedy and great portions ! Give them a try !

Some of the best Indian Cusine in Durham. If you like this cuisine and you have not tried India Gate you are doing yourself a huge disservice!

Nice family owned restaraunt - clean and authentic. I thought the food was rather average though. Buffet options were alright but we just didn't really love the quality of the food. Not a bad place to eat though.

Decent Indian restaurant. Only been here for a buffet, and was not wowed by the variety. Try Basera nearby if you want more variety in the buffet.

Would have given 5 stars but there is a little lack of variety in options. Was there for lunch buffet and food was awesome. Not a high end place but great for lunch, will visit again.

I LOVE this place. My family dines in every now and then, and the service is amazing. The owners are so sweet and the food is definitely worth praising. On Monday we did take-out for the first time. Received everything we ordered packed and labeled nicely. p.s We love their portion sizes. I never leave hungry because I always have left overs. I guess that's what keeps us coming back.

By far the best Indian restaurant I have eaten in NC. We are a group of 10 who usually stops by once a month. Every time we visit, the team at India Gate provides us with both delicious food and great service. The owner is sweet lady who is super friendly always provides us with great service every time. I highly recommend this fantastic Indian restaurant!

Went for the lunch buffet. Great selection. Had excellent vegetarian and vegan options. Can't beat the price either. Only 9.99 during the week.

I've tried a lot of Indian restaurants in the Triangle and beyond. I always end up back at India Gate. It's just better. Every dish is delicious, and the staff is friendly and pleasant to talk to. We especially like the Korma and the Butter Chicken.

Went to India Gate for Father's Day with a party of seven. They treated us so nicely and were very attentive. The food was AMAZING! Full of flavor but not at all spicy, just the way we like it. Definitely Recommend.

Food has a fantastic depth of flavor! The freshness of ingredients and attention to detail is really impressive. The lunch Thali meals in particular are an amazing value for the price. Naan cooked to order, fresh and hot right out of the tandoor. A lovely variety of tastes and textures, and every component is clearly given real attention. Rice is often an afterthought but in this case perfectly fluffy and seasoned to perfection. And the portions are GENEROUS! I'm not a small guy, but a single lunch order at $11 is lunch AND dinner!

Nice ambience, pleasant Indian instrumental music. It was pretty empty on Sunday evening - take-out was the only option. The owner was very friendly and helped with vegan suggestions from the menu. The food was decent and servings were fairly large for one person.

Good lunch, no complaints, worth the value($12). We tried both veg and non veg lunch plates.
