Great Indian food

Went here on a recommendation in our hotel and it did not disappoint. Really good food and the staff were friendly. We went here close to closing time but they were still great, we didn't feel one bit rushed and our glasses were never empty. I have read reviews below that the food is bland but I... read more

We were craving Indian and refused to visit Amber after a snooty experience a few years ago. On a Sunday night, table for 2, we were told the wait was 30 minutes. One half of the restaurant is corded off for"reservations" and the other half was half full. We opted to sit at the bar instead. The hour we were... More

Despite a very modest entrance, the dining room is actually quite grand - and old bank, perhaps? The menu was organized rather differently than standard UK ones, so we opted for a set piece that turned our to be very tasty, with many distinct flavours and well-prepared ingredients. As ever, the pudding was dullish, but no different from what can... More

After a long trip, we were craving for Indian food, and this came highly recommended. The ambiance is good, you will like the decor and the sounds. We ordered a combination of vegetarian and non-vegetarian starters, main course, and bread (naan). The meats were great, the vegetarian fare very average. Portions are moderate, good for one person at best.

We went in to this restaurant because we love indian food. We were so happy with how good it was. The inside of the restaurant makes you feel like you have walked into an indian palace. The staff was very friendly and service was wonderful. I was disappointed that they had no Gewürztraminer to go with food

I am an avid fan of Indian restaurants back in England and wasn't expecting this to compare with some of the excellent eataries I have dined in. How wrong could I be, this is an absolute gem of a restaurant. The location is central, the decor is a little traditonal for me, but the food is the thing that really... More

Eating a very lame lunch from New Delhi restaurant on Ellis St. in SF. I was in the mood for keema mattar, which is a homestyle ground lamb or beef (or turkey if you want to be all new age and healthy about it) and daal. So disappointed that the keema seems to be made with tandoori-paste-ified lamb kebabs reincarnated... More
