There’s little to say about The Gate of India besides that if you’re looking for quality Indian cuisine in the village of Tynemouth, even if you’re spreading your wings from further down into North Shields and Tyneside. If we must wax lyrical – and sometimes we must – it’s neat to point out that this Gate of India stands at what some might consider the UK’s gate to the North Sea, and that some kind of cultural-culinary exchange is rather an appropriate activity to have going on here on Front Street. The Gate of India is a traditional balti and curryhouse serving all your favourites from South Asia, taking in everything from Kashmiri and Punjabi dishes through to South Indian and Bengali delicacies, and even some Malay and Sri Lankan options – something of a rarity.
Food sounds delicious?

Being going here for special occasions and family get togethers for years now and I cannot fault them . The staff are lovely and friendly and we always enjoy our meals and most of all it’s great for money. They do a Thursday special for £12.95 which entails of a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink , a starter, a main , a pudding and a coffee. What more could you ask for !!! In all the years we’ve never had a bad meal it’s always been delicious. If you’ve never been you should go 😁
Not a great dining experience. Service poor and restaurant in need of updating. Not enough staff and, worryingly, a lot of flies in the dining room.
Very good and will visit again. Good value for money.
