Loved the Dahl and the garlic Naan bread is yummy. I have not had the pizza but everything is clean and service is good for a little strip mall owned by the same family.

The decor is charming with an India Indian decor. The menu is quite extensive and includes not only pizza, but burgers (not necessarily available after 6:30 p.m.) and Indian cuisine. We had various Indian dishes plus a mango milkshake. The food was good as was...More

Really good Indian food. The pizza looked good but I stuck with Indian. The service was very good although understaffed when I was there.

Sam's Pizza is also a terrific Indian restaurant. After travelling for two weeks it was a real treat to find such a wonderful Indian restaurant in the desert. The vegetable Korma and Naan were perfection.

A really excellent Indian restaurant near the national park. All of the dishes we had were excellently prepared. The breads we ordered were the best we've ever had at an Indian meal.

I was in Joshua Tree for business and heard about the Indian Food. I stopped and ordered it to go...3 weeks in a row. Although the chicken could have been juicier, the vindaloo sauce more than made up for it. Delicious and totally unexpected.

I ate dinner at Sam's Pizza during both nights of my stay in Joshua Tree. I had Indian cuisine - not pizza - and it was fantastic. The only issue is that the restaurant is small, so if you are a solo traveler you will...More
