India Gate is an Indian restaurant in Tustin. India Gate cooks isn’t biased to any particular region. There’s a Northern-style goat curry with a lovely stink of game and a Hyderabadi dum biryani with shotgun blasts of whole spice pods that aren’t intended to be eaten. And, of course, there is white meat chicken cubes simmered in the creamy tangy gravy of the tikka masala, a dish more British than Indian. But India Kitchen also does Indo-Chinese, including perhaps the best bastardization of bastardized dish in their chili chicken (think General Tso’s but spicier) and one of the crispiest renditions of gobi Manchurian—batter-fried cauliflower glazed in a spicy sauce—you’ll ever have.
