I adore Indian curries and have not found one to date in California at least that can produce a good hot spicy curry. They are usually to mild for my taste. We visited here on the recommendation of the family in America after a 3 brewery beer tasting session for a take away. The restaurant was well laid out and... More

This is most likely the best Indian food I have had in bay area. Great flavors, wasn't too greasy or bland, didn't feel bloated after the meal, very fresh preparations and very friendly staff. Our Sunday lunch with family was made perfect here. We saw others order tandoori chicken platters and regretted not to have order one. Next visit will... More

The food and service is excellent. The atmosphere is very pleasant. Their wine prices are very reasonable as well.

Being from the UK I wasn't sure what to expect from an Indian resturant in the States. I was pleasantly suprised. It was a lovely meal, prehaps not as spicey as you would get in the UK or the range of dishes. But a very tastey meal. Service was good. I'll go again next time in Livermore.

I have been eating at Sansar since it opened over 15 years ago. I have seen it grow from a small 6 table restaurant into the present 20 table space. They offer a great lunch buffet that is a bargain at under $10.

We enjoyed our dinner at Sansar Indian Cuisine; we have dined there before. Dinner was good. We had meat pakoras, lamb rack ribs, matter paneer, and rice. We enjoyed mango lassi with our meal. For dessert we had chai tea as well as gulab jamun. Food was very good. We ordered our dinner with medium spice. We liked that level.... More

These people know how to season. The hotness of the food is excellent as it warms you from inside rather than igniting your sinuses. Every dish was perfect and the nan was excellent. Good matching Indian beer and a good wine list too. Very good service. I prefer the brick second room as it has an intimate atmosphere, while the... More

I come here really often and am pretty picky on my Indian food. I have had a little bit of everything and all have been amazing. My favorites are Butter Chicken, Eggplant, Lamb sag, naan (of course), vegetable Samosa ... but you can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Their take out is prompt and on time. I would... More

We came here for dinner after going to the movies. I liked the decor of this Indian restaurant. For dinner we had pakoras (very good) and for our main lamb curry, matar panner, rice, and a garlic nan. We asked it to be made spicy. The food was very good. Service was good also. We parked nearby at a free... More

This is my grandma and my favorite place to get Indian food. The staff is always very friendly, and the food is delicious. My only complaint would be that it isn't as spicy as I'm used to in Indian food, but for my grandma it's a plus - she really can't handle that kind of heat anymore.
