East Indian culture delights in the opportunity to share their culinary skills and hospitality with guests. At India Gate restaurant in Newmarket, owner Parshotam Dhiman shares this honour and pride with his guests as they enjoy a variety of healthy menu choices in an appealing atmosphere.

“Food says a lot about a culture and society,” says Mr. Dhiman. “I wanted to have a menu of traditional Indian food and a contemporary environment with Indian style – and that’s what India Gate provides.”

Winner of the Eat Smart Award and Readers’ Choice Awards, India Gate has recently been recognized by local media as a great place to eat. The dishes are either vegetarian or use high quality, lean-cut meat. ”Indian food is very healthy as is the way we cook it, there are no artificial flavourings or preservatives,” added Mr. Dhiman.

“Every day is like a fond story to me, and I have collected many over the years. The high points are when we are publicly recognized, such as winning the Eat Smart Award. But recently, a small child told me the food was good and that made my day too.”

Mr. Dhiman has seen the Davis Drive area change since his family moved to Newmarket from England in 1995. “Newmarket is a vibrant community. I hope that with the redevelopment of Davis Drive, traffic congestion will be reduced and even more businesses and people will come into the downtown area.”

As construction on Davis Drive moves forward, India Gate will continue to serve culture and award-winning food to York Region residents from their location at 130 Davis Drive.

more than just a rapidway
rebuilding Davis from the ground up
Davis Drive is approaching its final year of construction and we thank you for bearing with us as we work hard to transform Davis Drive.

construction is challenging
Completely rebuilding Davis is a challenging and complex project that required replacing and relocating outdated utilities and infrastructure under and above ground, before road widening could begin.

what’s to come
Substantial work above ground is underway. Here’s a snapshot of how work is progressing.


  • Construction of the vivastation at Parkside/Longford and Davis is underway.
    The steel structure and glass canopy shelter will arrive later this fall.
  • Construction of two more vivastations at Main and Southlake Hospital
    will also begin later this year.
  • The reconstruction of the Keith Bridge will be completed this fall.

viva is coming to davis – dec. 2015
In addition to having a centre-lane bus rapidway, Davis will have wider sidewalks, green open spaces and dedicated left-turn lanes at each intersection that will improve overall traffic flow. All these changes will make Davis an even greater destination to live, work, shop and play.
