The food was bland and it was pretty apparent that they were going to reuse the salad that comes with all meals. The waiter was careful not to put it with the dirty dishes. That was unsanitary and gross... considering my 4 year old was touching it. Who knows if it was used before it came to us.

Very pleasant restaurant with friendly and quick service. The food is very good and delicious, and is served with style. Have been there several times and enjoy it every time.

We found this little Indian restaurant on our last day in San Francisco and wished we'd found it earlier. Everything about the place was authentic from the people to the place settings. The food was delicious and so reasonably priced.

We have some really good Indian food in Houston where I live so I'm a bit of a snob. The New Delhi was right across the street from the Wyndham where I stayed for a conference so I decided to give it a try. (It's in a great location right in the middle of the Union Square area.) I was... More

We arrived in San Francisco on Thursday afternoon, checked into our hotel and went online looking for a restaurant in the area. My husband said he would like Indian food if there was something nearby. I was thinking the same thing. New Delhi was a short walk from the Marriott Marquis. Perfect. When we arrived at the restaurant, there were... More

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...
