New Delhi Restaurant was chosen by my colleagues an due to the close location to our hotel. Despite mixed reviews online, we went and were very impressed. They had something for everybody, including the gluten free, vegetarians, and vegans. They offer a complimentary appetizer of lentil flatbread (almost cracker like) with a sweet red sauce and a spicy green sauce.... More

Appetizers were not particularly appetizing, e.g., the spice flavor profile of the samosas was unbalanced. Stingy servings of rice. Raita was on the verge of spoiling. Mango lassi was OK. Desserts were lackluster. Vegetarian entrees were average and the portions were minuscule. Service was extremely slow, and one of the servers was borderline rude.

Was crazing an Indian whilst in the U.S. This place did not disappoint, curry was nice with well cooked lamb although my girlfriend was less pleased with her chicken. The garlic naan was a bit odd though, tasted more like garlic bread which is not what I am used to. Service was excellent however and I would definitely recommend to... More

My husband and I have been driving cross country and are now in San Francisco. We walked across the street from our hotel and found this little restaurant. We had the lamb kabob, shrimp curry, garlic naan and Indian iced tea. It was all very good and filling.

The service is very amicable, the host offers a clear description of the plates and recommended the right amounts so we wouldn't overdue it!! Prices are below of what you could expect for the high quality of the food served! Every plate is good and we stayed with the classics lamb vindalu, chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken and rice!! But... More

I don't think I had such bad Indian food in the last couple of years. To top it all, the owner is stubborn and disrespectful. Save yourself from the misery and go somewhere else

We visited one evening near 10pm but the kitchen was closed so we came back the next day as it had a nice look to it. We ordered a mixed veg starter plate, Bengal lamb dish, Gujarati Gobi Channa a couple of naans and some saffron rice. All was absolutely delicious, very flavoursome and the right amount of spice. It... More

The staff were polite and pleasant but could be a little more attentive. The food was average. The coconut Goa fish curry was tasty but a little overdone and dry. My husband ordered the lamb curry from the chef special menu and enjoyed it. The rice we ordered could have been warmer but the garlic naan bread was very nice.... More
