“Great food in a lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

So happy there is now good Indian food in Mt Shasta! The owners are on site, working hard alongside their capable staff to give personalized, friendly service to all customers. Restaurant is completely vegetarian. Menu has good options---my favorites are the samosas, palak paneer, and the homemade kheer dessert---delicious. One note: rice is not served with your meal, you need to order separately and pay extra for it. This is normal for India, not so typical in California. They are also starting a brunch menu on weekends, which seems to be still evolving. Owners and staff very open to questions and suggestions. Oh yes, sit outside for a lovely view of Mt Shasta from their comfy patio.

“A welcome and much needed addition to the dining scene in Shasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Fantastic fresh indian food totally vegetarian, what a wonderful surprise. We had driven in from San Francisco, four Australians tired and hungry and what a treat. Best garlic naan ever (and i have eaten at
many Indian restaurants around the globe) delicious samosas with delicate light pastry, yummy home made mint sauce with a kick and homemade tamarind and chilli sauce to die for. Complimentary home made papadam to start. Mains were great except for the daal which we found a bit watery. A must visit when you pass through this way. Extremely good service and very reasonable prices both food and wine. We will be dining here a lot whilst in the area! Dining out on the deck with the view of Mt Shasta really tops it off!

“Great Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We walked in thinking it is still the sushi place. We stayed to give it a chance. Very good appetizers, great bartender, and good main dishes. We left satisfied.

“A nice new restaurant in Mt Shasta, check it out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Delicious Indian food, all vegetarian, but don't let that scare you away, it's very good! There are many vegan and gluten-free options as well. My friend and I dined outside on the deck, it was a nice place and the service was top-notch. Good wine list too! All in all, an excellent restaurant, I'll definitely go back.

“Fresh for Foodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

En route back from Portland, Oregon, a mecca for quality "farm to table," organic, high standards foods, our family was nervous about what we would find to eat in Mt Shasta.

We were happy (and grateful to fellow Yelpers) to find Maruti Restaurant, a brand new restaurant, which did not disappoint.

You can't go wrong if you're a seasoned foodie or if you're new to Indian food. I got the sense that if guests needed help choosing what to eat, the staff would guide without judgment.The food was excellent: fresh, flavorful ingredients, with perfectly spiced indian dishes--not overwhelming, nor greasy.

The owners were extremely welcoming and hospitable, sharing a taste of their mango lassi with our family of 4 and going out of their way to make extra garlic naan, even as the kitchen was closing. We discovered that the new owners had only opened 2 weeks previously--having uprooted from San Francisco to make their mark: they will!
