Do not go here for food, especially Jain food. No variety at all. On top of that, it has a cover charge of $15 per person. Also, it does not focus on its quality of food at all

Sanfrancisco is a wonderful place to be in addition to availability of choicest of Asian food. I had discovered this little joint courtesy Goggle. Really enjoyed typical Indian dishes in a nice and cosy environment. Restaurant decor is amazing and also oozes ample warmth.

I'm not the greatest fan of Indian food. The food was ok, not as oily as some places I've been to before. The price was quite dear though for what it was. We had a mixed starter platter, again I don't think it's worth the price. I recommend order individual starter to share. The main course was good. Although they... More

Based on some of the current reviews this is clearly a "hit and miss" restaurant. Thankfully, we were there on a "hit" night. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, some of the better Indian food we have had in the past year. We are staying at the Hilton Hotel and we wanted a restaurant close... More

Would highly recommend this Indian restaurant. Give it a try! Service and food were all spot on. My only grumble was the gap between starter and main was to short.

We've been here twice on two separate visits to SF, and both times we had very good experiences. The food was wonderful and the wait staff was very attentive. Their wine selection was good, too. I'm glad we came here--and returned! While I recognize that there are 14 million Indian restaurants in SF (just kidding), it will be hard seek... More

We visited San Francisco last week, and decided to eat at this restaurant. It was close to our hotel (Hilton) and we adore Indian food. However, we were extremely disappointed with our experience. When we entered, there was a strong smell of dirt coming from the carpeting. Upon closer inspection, it seemed that they have not cleaned the carpets in... More

I visited this place at least 3 times. Chicken Madras was very tasty. Chicken Biryani again was mouth watering. Tanddori platter was terrific. Panner pakodas were very spicy and tangy and made my day.So were vegetable fritters fired in slit peas flour batter.Garlic naan was good too. Reasonable prices. Will recommend it to all. The very fact that I visited... More
