I had the vegetarian "Punjabi Enchilada- Curried Sweet Potato", and they seemed to have a good selection of vegetarian foods with a indo-mexican fusion flare. Also regular Indian dishes & curries both with meat and vegetarian. Great dessert-"Avatar's Dream" with mango and cream cheese! Yum!

We went here because it was suggested in our guide. We were visiting. It a was a wonderful experience. The owner asked us if it was our first time, what we liked, and then... he said, "trust me". So we did not know what we would get! My wife got a vegetarian dish and I got fish. Both were extraordinary.... More

Ever had an Indian flavored Enchilada? Well we have and it was amazing! We were treated like royalty, offered samples of everything, and filled to the brim with wonderful flavors. Thank you!

Love this place! Food is unique and amazing and the owner fun and entertaining. Ignore the review from the Texan. He needs to stay out of CA.

We went here with an Indian friend of ours who loves this place and we let the waiter pick our meal for us. We were not disappointed. Everything was over the top delicious with flavors that I wanted to never end! The vegetable enchilada was incredible and don't pass on the dessert! Worth a trip back to the mainland just... More

We'd heard rave reviews from several people but found Avatar's to be average Indian food. I don't know how else to put it - it wasn't bad by any means, it just wasn't close to the best Indian food we've every had. Service was excellent, very attentive. However, the place was packed and the servers were sort of frantically moving... More

We left Muir Woods hungry and wanting a nice restaurant in which to relax, share our adventures among the giant sequoias and enjoy a good meal. What a pleasant surprise to land in Avatar's for lunch! We were a group of 11 with a variety of tastes and special dietary needs and our waiter was most friendly and genuinely concerned... More

Mixed reviews! I certainly think the owner's approach deserves a little respect. Few people can do something so well that they can read between the lines and give you something you'll love. However, he didn't hit the nail on the head with everyone. 50/50 with our table. First off, I wouldn't serve grilled broccoli with lamb in a stir-fry style... More

I had visited Avatar's in 2013 whilst on holiday in San Francisco. It was amazing and I couldn't wait to go back again. This time, I brought my mother, who was a bit sceptical about the whole 'tell me what you like and it will be the best thing you've ever eaten' spiel from our waiter. To her surprise, it... More

I highly recommend this spot for healthy, good food. Especially if you like spicy cuisine. The wait staff is very friendly as well. We just moved our company to Sausalito and already have this as our regular lunch spot.
