I used to love coming to Gateway to India. I hadn't been there in about a year due to the fact that I can't afford to eat out very often these days. But I decided to dip into the couch cushions and sweep under the car seats to find some cash to treat my friend, Ms. Omnivore, to Indian food. I have the feeling that the owners may have changed since I was last there. The food used to be excellent. Now it’s merely good and the service has gone downhill. There used to be a man and a woman who ran the kitchen and buffet. They would always be restocking the trays and the gentleman would always come around to your table to offer you endless stacks of warm naan bread and conversation. He would always check to see if you were enjoying your meal and if you needed or wanted anything. He also made sure to remind you about the free spicy Indian coffee, soda and water that were available with your buffet purchase. The current young man behind the counter didn’t even look at us or welcome us or tell us about the drinks. He quickly disappeared into the kitchen. It was then that we realized there was no rice. Without the rice all the dishes ran together and were unidentifiable as separate entities, which was disappointing because I was going to attempt to describe them all in this review. A lot of other Indian restaurants put labels on their buffet items so that you can tell what you are choosing, that way you can distinguish your alooghophi from your palak paneer. Not so at Gateway to India. I’m somewhat familiar with Indian food and know what some of the dishes are called, but this place had a number of items of which I was unfamiliar. So I can’t tell you the names of the dishes and can only speculate upon the ingredients. It was all good, but I can’t tell you exactly what I ate. We didn’t see the food prep guy and there wasn’t anyone else in sight and there didn’t seem to be anyone else around who worked there, so we couldn’t even ask about the ingredients. Then the kicker, after we were in there for almost a half an hour, two couples arrived, I saw the first couple go into the back area where the kitchen was located; then the next thing I knew, the food prep guy finally brought out a pan of rice, which had been AWOL during the half hour that we had been there, and then a basket of naan was delivered to the couple’s table. Not so with us. The second couple walked up to the buffet and stood there for about ten minutes waiting for the food prep guy to come out. They wanted a takeout container. The food prep guy didn’t seem too friendly toward or interested in them either. After he gave them their container, he retreated back into the kitchen again and that was the last we ever saw of him. I always try to thank restaurateurs after I’ve eaten a meal, whether it be Taco Bell or Bertrand’s at Mister A’s, and sometimes I like to ask questions about the food or the venue. I wasn’t able to do either this time
