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.

In Newmarket, the future of transit has arrived with the opening of the Viva yellow line on the Davis Drive rapidway. Riders can now enjoy a quick comfortable journey to one of three vivastations at Longford, Main and Southlake, or continue to the Highway 404 park and ride with curbside stops at Huron Heights and Leslie.

With fast, reliable transit and updated utilities in place, Newmarket is prepared for the growth already happening. More travel choices and attractive, tree-lined streets will bring more places to live and work in Newmarket’s downtown. All this goes a long way to improving transit in York Region and all of you are a big part of that. Thank you!
