Delicious blend of Indian and Latin tastes

Great place. Owner/waiter great. Food is excellent and fast service. If we are ever back in the area, would go back in a heart beat.

We were turned on to this restaurant by the previous TripAdvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Excellent flavor, great portion size, great service, and a contagious enthusiasm from the owner. I highly recommend the chicken with pumpkin enchiladas.

The owners and staff are just wonderful folks. This place was packed for lunch. We had the curry pork and pumpkin enchiladas. Terrific.

Peddled over the bridge and found this place for lunch. A little outside of town and away from the touristy restaurants. The owner guaranteed we'd be dreaming about the punjabi enchiladas later...and we were. The family loved it.

A friend of ours took us to this place during our recent visit to Sausalito. She is a local and recommended us to try the Indo-mexican or Indo-Italian food served here. We had taro or pumpkin enchilada served with rice, methi ravioli with vegetables tossed in a mild curry and Bathua saag with rice and grilled vegetables and mango lassi.... More

We visited this restaurant on a busy day (Valentine's day) with some friends. The owner was very friendly. Despite a huge crowd and waiting customers, he took pains to serve every table with personal attention. I was amazed at the speed , yet polite way in which the servers buzzed around the restaurant. A small cozy restaurant, very creative and... More

Dishes are Indian- and Jamaican-influenced, and delicious. People looking for standard Indian food should go to the India Palace, but those seeking creative cuisine should enjoy it. I've been going here for many, many years. Note that it's a tiny place and can get packed at peak lunch and dinner times.

I like traditional Indian food (chicken tiki masala and garlic nan) but no luck here. Owner talked me into a different dish (chicken yogurt and some gross mango sauce) . I took one bite and I was done. Fortunately for me my husband will eat anything so we traded and I ate his curry chicken which was good. I also... More

I ate here with a friend and I have to say it did not meet expectations. The concept of Mexican/Indian fusion sounds interesting but it didn't play out on the plate. I'll agree that the owner is charming but after confirming that it was our first time there, he took our menus and essentially ordered specials for us. They were... More
