When we entered the restaurant, which was almost empty when we arrived, the three servers were having a discussion in the back and made us feel we were intruding. We are used to friendliness in Indian restaurants and having spent considerable time in India usually relate to the staff. They advertise free chai with the buffet and there was a... More

I love this restaurant; the quality of food is absolutely superb. I know this because my wife is Punjabi. The problem I have is, today when I dined there for lunch, I was surprised and highly disappointed to see a dog sitting on a chair with two ladies eating lunch. Really? Five feet from the buffet table? I am aware... More

Stopped in for lunch on our way through Livermore and knew we had made a good choice as soon as we opened the door -- the aromas were delicious! The buffet had a wide variety of veggie and meat options, including goat curry!, and was refreshed constantly. I must say I have had better naan, but everyhing else was perfectly... More

I met some friends here for lunch and I have to say the service was great, the lunch buffet had lots of wonderful dishes to try and it was all very tasty! There is rice and curry and salad, fish, chicken, lamb and all very tasty! We all enjoyed ourselves and we look forward to going there again!

We went here for lunch and really enjoyed the buffet. There are many choices and everything we tried was quite good. The price is very reasonable. The restaurant is clean, the service good. A very enjoyable meal and we'll go back.

Tried their great, reasonably priced lunch buffet and it was outstanding. Food was great with a wide selection of vegetables and meat, most with wonderful sauces, and none too spicy. Just right. I'm a casual fan of Indian food and this was as good as I've ever had. The service is outstanding as well. Can't wait to try it for... More

Sansar is family operated and all meals are cooked to order. Traditional Indian food fills the menu and is delicious! They will ask how spicy you want it prepared. They have an all you can eat buffet lunch on Saturday. If you aren't sure what you like, that would be the day to find out.

Great Indian Food. We went for dinner and had a great experience. It was spicy/hot but not overly so. Highly recommended.

I’m a fan of Indian food so was happy to see that Livermore had a well rated Indian restaurant. The Sansar was excellent and well worth the visit. I have eaten many Indian meals in North America and the UK and have always been disappointed at what passes for good Indian food on the west coast so I was pleased... More

We got there right after they opened around 11:30am, and the whole place smells amazing; fresh food, at least 10 dishes to choose from. Very friendly staff. By the way, their Chai, is one of the best I have ever tried.
