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?
Get a table before they're gone
Had a great time, would go again, food was great
Obviously a very good chef. Great value for money. Only thing that lets this great experience down is the dated furnishings and tableware.
