This is hands down probably the best Indian food I've ever had. We had the samosas, tikka masala, chicken vindaloo, rice and the cilantro garlic naan. Everything was fantastic. The chicken vindaloo was very spicy and hit the spot. The service was fast and friendly. Our water glasses were never empty. The owner was very nice and checked in on... More

We decided to have a vegetarian dinner since one of us does not eat meat and was actually just back from many years in India. The food was tasty, fresh and spicy. The staff were very helpful and the service impeccable. The prices were very... More

We had a very good Indian meal here. We are Brits living in Texas and finding a good Indian restaurant is not easy. This was probably the best one we have found so far. Interesting dishes - some familiar ones and some new ones. Also some lovely cocktails and a specialty wine. Very good service. The restaurant setting is an... More

We walked in on a Thursday night and we're seated quickly. The food was all wonderful, and the Taj Mahal beer refreshing. The wait staff was prompt and attentive. They have high chairs and are accommodating to families with children.

We found this place on our last night in SF. We were tired and hungry but didn't know where to go. We went as it was near our hotel (Nikko) and it was lovely. The decor lovely, great menu, friendly staff and the food delicious!

The food was the best we had in San Francisco. We were staying around the corner and just happened upon it while walking and I'm so glad we did. Best naan bread ever.

Very elegant interior with super tall ceilings and columns. You really could not tell from the outside. What a pleasant surprise to find such an authentic and well established Indian restaurant so close to Union Square and the hotels. Food was very flavorful and fresh. One of the best Nan's I have ever had. Excellent and attentive service made this... More
