Ordered a takeaway.When I got it home I discovered that they'd given me some coconut based curry instead of a Balti(how can any competent chef get these two dishes mixed up??!!)Also I had paid for a chicken tikka MAIN and ended up with a STARTER size(if it WASN'T then it must be a child's portion!).Finally the king prawn curry was very bland.If it hadn't have been late at night I would have drove back down and gave them the food back! My first visit to The Gate of India...and my LAST!… Read Full Review

I eat Indian a lot and read reviews on this place and all where good Well I know what a good Indian tastes like and this place was no where near. Boiled chicke breast in a curry sauce. Where has the skill of the chief gone. And to be charged nearly £5 for 2 popadoms and dip. We had a folk full each and could not eat the rest. However the naan bread was nice… Read Full Review

I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years, it is a very busy popular place, and people who visit regularly know that you may have to wait, and its worth the wait.....the food is fantastic and we have tried virtually everything on the menu....the staff are friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere is lovely. people who book tables for large parties and then dont have the decency to arrive on time, dont deserve to eat there....as there are plenty of people who will be willing to… Read Full Review

After booking a table for my boyfriend and family, we arrived at the restaurant 10-15 minutes late. The 'Manager' had tried to call me and when I arrived I apologised profusely and he rudely told me in a very loud voice (in front of other waiting guests)....that "I should not book on a Saturday night if I was going to be late" and "that he had customers waiting." Again I apologised and explained it was difficult due to the large group and he repeated his rude comments. Taking into consideration… Read Full Review

We booked a table for 16 people on a Saturday evening. We were 15 minutes late and apologised but the staff were extremely rude. They were so rude that had it not been a Saturday night we would have walked out and gone elsewhere. The service at the table was also rude & poor. The onion bhaji starter I had was nice but the Dansak I had was inedible. I like spicy food but this was acidic & soured my stomach such that I couldn't eat anything else. My partners saag was ok but my mum-in-law's… Read Full Review

Visited the Gate of India for the first time in years on Saturday. On arrival the manager was so rude that we almost left and the waiters were also quite dismissive of us, didn't get any drinks until they'd taken food orders, totally unco-operative. Food was average, won't be back… Read Full Review

We ate there early on Saturday evening. The food was good but the lime cordial we were served was obviously watered down and the floor / tables were littered with crumbs / food debris. The floor looked like it hadn't been swept for some time. This was a bit off-putting as eating out is such a luxury these days why go somewhere where the place is a mess.

Our family eat out once a month as a treat. My husband, myself & daughter always go to The gate of India for our Indian meals. We have been going to The gate for about 6 years & have never had a meal that has been less than excellent. The staff are friendly, attentitive & polite & have always been helpful. When our daughter was younger my husband & I would order 2 starters/2 mains etc & the staff always made sure the little one did not feel left out & ensured she had a plate & generally the… Read Full Review

i would recommend The Gate of India restaurant to anyone who enjoys Indian food or wants to try it for the first time. The food is freshly prepared and you can taste the subtle flavours of the dishes.
I have eaten at this restaurant for 25 years on an average of twice a month and the food has yet to disappoint.
the restaurant will also adapt dishes to suit, for example tone down or increase the hotness of a dish.
The staff welcome children and as a family we have enjoyed many meals there… Read Full Review

I just love The Gate of India in Tynemouth. The food has always been perfect for me, and we have always had quick service, even when they have been busy. What more can I say?
My hubby and I always get a different dish so we can share. It is a lovely place to go when celebrating a birthday etc., and then you have all the pubs next to it… Read Full Review
