Jenner is a small town, with only a few places to eat. This Indian restaurant has authentic Indian food and is situated on Hwy. 1 over the Russian River.

We always said we'd stop here one day, today was it. Allowed our choice of tables, we sat beside the window looking down at the Russian River and beyond to golden hillsides dotted with slow moving cattle. We ordered the tandoori lunch special for two and garlic naan bread. I found a suitable Sau. Blanc on the wine list and... More

Heading north from San Francisco without a dinner plans and stumble upon this Indian restaurant in the middle of nowhere. A bit skeptical we checked out the menu to make sure it was authentic. Besides a less than talkative waitress and the too salty achar our vegetarian meal was a 10. What a treat.

I'm not real big on Indian food but there are not a lot of choices around here and I was on a special get a away with my husband who got all excited at the thought of Indian food. So, I sucked it up and didn't even complain when he said that is what he wanted. Glad I didn't because... More

We got there shortly before the restaurant was due to close, so that might account for the service being some what cold. The food was good. I had tandoori chicken and naan bread. They were tasty and well prepared. I did not like the fact they charge $3.25 for a bowel of rice. I would expect the rice to come... More

This place reminds me of towns that used to put out dummy fog lights and steer ships onto the rocks --- it's all a mirage, there's no food or service here. Read other reviews - it's a bad mistake from the young ladies who cannot tear themselves away from the Bollywood on the TV, to the bad food. If you... More

We have driven past this place so many times and said "we need to stop, one of these days." This time, since it was right around dinner time, we stopped. The view by the windows is expansive, looking out over the lower Russian River. It was hard to choose from so many choices for Indian food, but we settled on... More

Very pleased with the food. The location is pretty, and if you are expecting a modern chic urban experience, this ain't it.... it is a funky place but with a very nice room that is basically all windows as well as outdoor dining. The tandori chicken was very moist, not dried out. Shrimp curry (forget which one) was very pleasant.... More

Maybe they had a bad day, but the service was terrible when we ate here. No smiles, hardly any talk at all. Went with 4 people and when 2 plates were served, the waitresses were gone. We didn't have silverware yet, but couldn't ask for it (or for the other 2 remaining dishes). Finally they came back, we asked for... More
