We found this gem a few years ago and will only get our take-out from them, as well as eating in when we can. Great food and service and good portions. I'm from England and I and my expat friends believe this is the most...like the curry houses there that we've been able to find (and it's been a pretty exhaustive search!)More

Our final night in San Francisco and again we went with the option of a walk in option around Union Squire. It was not really busy but I was told by another customer that it had been. The food was nice and the meal size...was big and the service was OK with a few language problems but we speak Aussie English. We would go back but we also have just as nice Indian options in our home townMore

OK, it as NYE and it was busy so it took a while to get seated without a reservation. That's on us so I have discounted that from the review. The food was fine and tasty enough but didn't quite reach the peak of, 'Oh,...Wow!'. Give that there are lots of choices in the area, I'd probably try a different restaurant next time just for variety.More

Little Delhi (83 Elly St SAN Francisco) ticks all the boxes if you are looking for some good food in the city. The service is efficient and the price is reasonable. We enjoyed it and would recommend it.

We always try to have a curry everywhere we go in the world. Picked this restaurant due to location and reviews. It was quiet but the service and food were lovely - friendly with some banter. We had tandoori platter and a main course each....All were spiced to our request. All in all great foodMore

We ate dinner here recently. We shared vegetable pakora and Chili chicken starters. To be honest one starter would have been enough, but both were great. Our mains were chicken curry, lamb rogan josh, pilau rice with peas and naan. We couldn’t finish them but...they were excellent. I had a very reasonably priced NZ Sauvignon Blanc and my husband Indian lager. Our meal in total was less than $75 and well worth it.More

Enjoyed the food very much, the servings portions were very generous to include the spice. Was not aware that rice is ordered separately. All other restaurants I've visited it came with the meal. What I did not like was that I used grub hub and...the restaurant did not include utensils or dinner wear. Maybe that was typical, even if you get it delivered to a hotel. Called the restaurant and after a little back and forth, they decided to give me rice, utensils and paper plates - I just had to go there to pick it up, so much for grub hub. At the end of the day Little Delhi made it right, so they earned the 4th star.More

I liked that you could choose the “spice” level. Very good service, decent cuisine, nothing fancy - rather classic Indian family dishes. Really enjoyed the dinner.

A very minimalist place. We had reservations. Superb food. I always order Chicken Tika Massala, and theirs was really great. It was more tomato and less cream than I am accustomed to, but it was nonetheless DELICIOUS. Naan bread and rice with the meal was...super. Samosas were super. This is a very simple place, but extremely well-run, well managed, fast, prompt, friendly, definitely worth returning to. Go there, super Indian food.More

Found this place on Yelp. The decor is more modern-industrial than traditional Indian. The kitchen is visible from the dining room and looks cleaner than average. The food was all flavorful. Only complaint is that everything is ordered separately. No rice or naan with the...meal unless you order it. I got naan, but it would have been nice to have rice in order to enjoy more of the sauce.More

Wandered into New Delhi Restaurant for the first, but certainly not the last time, and was warmly greeted by Chef Ranjan.  Even though the restaurant was booked for private event, I was graciously accommodated with the warmest of hospitality (a rare treat these days). The...food was an amazing explosion of intense and masterfully crafted flavors.  Each dish was a masterpiece in its own right and was cooked to perfection    Truly a delightful culinary experience of what authentic Indian cuisine could and should taste like.   Look no further when you are craving Indian cuisine of the highest quality, carefully prepared under the watchful eye of a skilled Chef who truly cares about bringing an outstanding dining experience for each and every guest!More

My wife and I were visiting the city for a couple of days, and we decided to try this place on our final night. We like Indian food and have eaten in Indian restaurants all over the place on many trips. If this place were...near where we live, we would go on a regular basis. The food was excellent and the service was friendly.More

I never had to and walked in. You can making a booking to reserve a table (especially if going as a large party), but I was a walk-in with plenty of tables available on last visit.

Hi there!!! Yes all Indian foods are normally considered gluten since the only real item they use on the table that contains gluten are the "roti" like a large tortilla. Other than that the food is amazing
