How do you do a Mexican oriented menu with mainly Indian food? Oh yeah, then toss in the ability to do any dish vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, or any other food preference one may have? They promise this and they deliver! My wife and I have been there twice, the second time with several other members of our family. Both... More

We were there for dinner, and I explained to the owner that I was not familiar with his menu. He asked me my likes and dislikes, and then created an awesome meal of curry and sea bass. The flavoring was wonderful and the fish was done to perfection. Wish we had an Avatar in Colorado!

The owner is a proud chef who has no qualms about boasting over his gluten free relatively low fat offerings. And does he deliver. A tasty mixtures of enchilada and Indian spices, in a mild (you choose how spicy) and sweet sauce. The vegetarian enchilada was perfectly blended with cheese and for a non-vegetarian, better than the chicken dish. He... More

Don't let the size of the joint fool you! The restaurant may be small it size but the service and food are grand. Service was delightful!. Our wait person (think it may have been the owner) was both helpful and entertaining. The food was unique and excellent. And the portion sizes were just right.

And if you eat at Avatar, you will be a better person. At least a healthier one. Because you will have eaten some the tastiest food you've ever had and it will be healthy for you. The owner is a savant of food and nutrition. (However, the photos of people licking their plates don't help. Yes, I wanted to. No,... More

Avatar's has the most amazing food with excellent service in a "down-home" restaurant (if you like eating in an Indian coffeshop). They are the nicest people, and the food is fantastic. Never had a bad meal at Avatar's.

You cannot go enough, you cannot order enough different items off the menu... you cannot believe the kind and warm and generous owner's promise, "If it's not the best thing you have ever tasted, you don't pay". This is one of the most delicious spots in Marin, and it's casual enough to go for lunch, then dinner than night, and... More

We are vegetarians who often get competent but standard, pasta-vege dishes that lack excitement at most restaurants. This restaurant is definitely an exception to that rule! Fortunately, the owner was the host the night we were there. He has a great personality and before we decided on the menu's offerings, he told us to close our menus and tell him... More
