Used to eat here nearly every day when I owned a shop nearby. A hidden gem on Caledonia. Authentic food served by friendly staff with a few tables to eat indoors.

Since moving to Sausalito, I make a point of coming here every week. Once of my favorite spots! They have really good Indian food and a very relaxed atmosphere. Everything is made to order so do expect to be in a hurry. You will enjoy!
