Gateway to India - Gig Harbor Ratings and Reviews
Everything about Gateway to India was great. What's not great, is when you make a Valentines Day reservation on Open Table and the restaurant tells you when you show up that they don't use Open Table any longer, but Open Table still takes reservations?! Now my nice dinner with my wife gets a sit and wait date until they have an opening. The employees handled it great, not a long wait, but frustrated at Open Table. Do not book THIS restaurant through Open Table. I guess the lesson is, which is not the point of the app. Call after making the reservation and double check? Again, the restaurant handled it great, just remove them from Open Table.
Gateway doesn't use your service anymore and making reservations through open table doesn't work. I'm not sure why you have them listed in your database because when you show up for your reservation they say WELL WE HAVE TOLD THOSE IDIOTS WE DO NOT USE THEIR SERVICE ANYMORE BUT THEY HAVE NOT REMOVED US FROM THEIR SYSTEM SO WE CONSTANTLY HAVE TO TELL CUSTOMERS TO STOP USING OPENTABLE.
I have eaten at the Tacoma location several times (and liked it) and decided to meet a friend at the Gig Harbor restaurant to compare. Its a nice, clean, friendly place tucked a little out of the way on Kimball Dr. The food was exactly the same as Tacoma GTI. Very fresh, flavorful with a kind the typical N. Indian fare with a few S. Indian dishes thrown in. It's about as authentic as you can get in the U.S. prepared in a restaurant. For people that know and enjoy the rich, varied cusine of India this is more than acceptable. For those new to it, then there is plenty to select and get an unintimidating sample. The service was friendly and low key. We had a great time!!
We have been to both The Gateway to India in Tacoma and now to the one in Gig Harbor. Far more ambiance, cleaner and broader menu it seems in the one in Gig Harbor. We will certainly be back. Thank you, also, to our fabulous server Leian who took such great care of us!!
The food was good - my boyfriend enjoyed it a bit more than I did, and the waitstaff was not nearly as prompt as you'd expect (it's NOT a huge restaurant). Normally that's not such a big deal, but we'd already been waiting 10 minutes for a table because they said they couldn't find the OpenTable reservation we'd made. Well, if you know it's a problem, take your name off their list! Overall, a nice place, but they could improve a few things. (and the vegetable fried appetizer was a bit dry and tasteless - we should've tried the samosas).
If you like Indian food, you'll love this restaurant-as well as their sister restaurant in Tacoma on 6th Ave. The food is really good. Try the chicken korma and the mango lassi. Yummy. IMHO, this is some of the best Indian food you'll find in the Tacoma area.
This restaurant provides good variety of Indian food. I'm not an expert on Indian food but India is a big country and I imagine they represent a certain part of others. Service is somewhat variable. Always friendly, but sometimes they seem understaffed and it wait times can be kind of long. They have a nice variety of hanging light fixtures.
Our first dinner at this restaurant. The waiter was knowledgeable and very helpful because the menu was confusing with one of the largest selections I have seen. Add to that, all the Indian dishes, the casual diner needs help. Service was fast and the taste was exceptional. All four in our party agreed that this was a place to re-visit. Prices were moderate.
One caution, this is Indian food and you have your choice of spiciness. Choose carefully and if you are not familiar with Indian food, start with the "mild" dishes.
My Dad and I came for dinner before seeing The Hunger Games movie.
I am 16 and my dad is 47. He has had Indian food before, but I have not, so he let me
choose the restaurant. I eat all types of ethnic food and I am a good eater...I had a great time at Gateway To India...The food was awesome and I was able to talk with my Dad and catch up without it being too noisy. I asked Mom to make our reservation and it worked out great on Open Table! We will be back! Emily Meyer, age 16,Gig Harbor, WA
