I suspect this may be a good restaurant, but the inexperienced waiter that we had, a young man, made our experience here rather unpleasant. When my sweet lassi came right away and my companion's mango lassi came much later, we joked quietly about having to pick the mangos out back. We didn't know it was a shade of things to... More

The lunch buffet is amazing, I go here at least twice a week. The owner makes the nann bread by hand, garlic is better! The chai tea is fresh and unsweetened and amazing! They have a lot of vegetarian food, soups, deserts and salads. Good service and lots of room.

I've enjoyed the food very much during each visit and always wanted to thank the talented person who prepared it. I haven't ever gotten the chance, but maybe this review will convey my appreciation.The mixed tandoori is simply amazing. I love to watch the Bollywood videos during dinner. It's fun to remember the films I've seen. I wish I could... More

When our 1st choice was closed on Monday we tried this place and we're delighted with the food. The paKora appetizers were excellent. Lots of great vegetarian selection'so to pick from.

I dropped in for dinner with my wife and two kids (13 & 10). We all love Indian food. Narrow restaurant and odd restaurant layout. Tables lined up against one wall for the most part. Waiter was attentive but wore a baseball cap. We got our food and and dug into a delicious meal. Then, we became distracted by what... More

This review is for their weekday lunch buffet- limited selection but quality food. Buffet had one appetizer, one soup, four veg and three non veg curries, salad & two desserts. You have a choice of bread between naan & garlic naan. Naan arrives hot & fresh at the table. Curries in general were flavorful, looked fresh and not overly creamy.... More

I love indian food and I had not found a place since moving to the north bay. My boyfriend never had it so when I saw the sign for an all you can eat buffet meal, I thought a buffet would be best so he can try different flavors. It was a delightful break from our shopping in Santa Rosa.... More

The owner is also the chef and is passionate about the quality of his food, which is exceptionally good, and varied. Be careful when asking for spicy- you will definitely get it!

We've been to Torch of India for lunch three times in the last few months, and have come away completely happy each time. As vegetarians, it's often hard to find a place where we can have delicious, interesting food that's not cheese/sauce laden or boring. There are several vegetarian choices on the lunch buffet, and all of them are terrific.... More

The Torch of India is tucked away in a narrow rectangular space, but the food is delicious. The green papua salad is a great starter. We always have enough to take away and have a second meal at home. The curry dishes are well seasoned. The mild version still has a delightful bite to it. The cost is reasonable and... More
