I was surprised to see an Indian restaurant in the back roads of scenic HWy - 1 area in Lagunitas way back in 2011. Stopped for a quick snack and was delighted at the authentic food and great service. I wasn't sure this place would survive in this location. I was in the area in 2015 and looked up the... More

We stopped here on our way around the coast and enjoyed delicious indian food in an authentic atmosphere. All dishes were fresh and well prepared, service was good. Seating outdoor and indoor are nice but outdoor is preferable. My coconut curry was especially delicious. The only thing that was a bit lacking was the chai- not enough spice.

If you're looking for a fancy place where you have to dress up and the waiters speak to you as if you're lucky to be allowed to eat in their restaurant, skip Arti's. Atri Cafe is a place you can go on the way to the beach, with kids, with your Mom, with friends, and you'll be treated well and... More

As an Indian from Goa, I was happy to find a good indian restaurant in Marin County. It is worth the drive to Lagunitas. Arti's is open every day and is most busy on Sundays when it also does a lot of take-out business. I always enjoy the coconut-based curry dishes at Arti's.

I had dinner here as a member of a party of three and have to admit I was quite skeptical that a small isolated village like Lagunitas could host something as specialized as a really good Indian restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised. The place is a bit hard to spot from the road, but is well worth the trip (in... More

My husband and I were staying in Inverness at the beginning of August and drove here for dinner one night. It was the best! I had a shrimp dish and rice. My husband had Arti's Special Chicken. Both were so great we came back a second time. I highly recommend this place. The service is great, the food is excellent... More

This restaurant is somewhat remote, but if you are in the area and enjoy Indian food, you have to go. I drove about 10 miles to get there on the recommendation of a local, and it was well worth it. I had the chana masala and a vegetable curry with basmati rice and naan. The curry was very good but... More

Good atmosphere, great Indian food, take out, inexpensive. What else can I say? We went with my mother who uses a walker and they were very helpful in getting her seated.
