    First time visit to this restaurant and first time for Indian food. We dined early on a Firday night (5:30) so there were only 4-5 tables of patrons. This likely also contributed to all the attention we had by the wait staff. We ordered Marsla chicken and Jinga shrimp. My wife doesn't do spice so she order the chicken mild. I wasn't sure if hot really meant hot so I order Med for the shrimp. Both dishes had very good flavor. The shrimp was definitely a medium in my book so I will likely try hot next time, which unfortunately means my wife won't try it. We also had a bread called spinach naan. Oh my gosh, that was really good! Tasted great dipped in the vegetarian soup. Great restaurant. We will be back!

    My husband come here at least once a month. If we plan a date night or just decide its time for our occasional dinner out as a family, we always choose Gateway to India. The food is wonderful (my favorite is the Gosht Biryani) and the service is always excellent.

    The people here really care about your experience. You go here for the food and the service and that is what you get. We go here 1-2 times a month and have never been let down.

    The wait staff seemed a wee bit harried, but they managed to keep up with the service. I would say that they still need a little more experience and training and in time they will have a four star rating. Menu items are always well prepared and I noted a distinct change in our usual appetizer. The portion was cut, but the quality was better. Not that it was bad before. They did miss the order for some bread, but that was not anything we couldn't get over. We really didn't need it anyway. Other than that, the food was awesome and we were able to get reservations on a Friday night. By the way this place clears out about 1900 and becomes even better.

    We were in town on Business and as always i turn to OpenTable and the GF turns to Yelp.. We got a glowing recommendation from a friend and so we went to check out this awesome place. I ordered the Lamb Tandoori at a spicy level 6 which is Indian Hot, the food was awesome. Besides it being to hot to eat because it was served right off the stove it was awesome. The Garlic Naan is really good and a nice size also, everything is really well cooked and the staff is really nice.

    We have been to Gateway several times now and the food never fails to please. The food is perfectly seasoned, highly spiced, but not necessarily spicy, unless you want spicy. We always seem to go on slower nights, but I'm told they get packed on the weekends, so make your reservation early. The service is consistently good, but sometimes it seems like the entire front of house staff is waiting on every table, again we've only gone on slower nights, so the staff might be looking for something to do. The staff is so nice and very knowledgeable about the food, sometimes they just try to take your order twice. Love Gateway! Can't wait to go back!
