If you love Indian Food you will love their lunch buffet. They have a pleasant staff and are clean. They consistently have great tasting food. I haven't had a bad meal in the last few years I have been.

We just passed by for some spicy food, we were sick of all the fast food. The owner is very nice when you let him know you like Indian, and the food is done quickly. The very spicy option was not that spicy, I guess...More

I highly recommend the Darbar wrap to go at lunch. Chicken tikka is also very good as is the butter chicken. We will often call our order in and get it to go for Friday movie night.

Great food and price. I visit there every time I'm in San Francisco. Place is small and not fancy. But if you like Indian/Pakistani food, you should try this place.

Daily buffet for $8.99, broad Pakistani menu includes signature wraps at lunch time. Nicer decor than the prices would suggest and very nice staff.

This little Pakistani restaurant is delightfully decorated and serves either a decent buffet at lunch or a la carte items at lunch or dinner. All are very good. Buffet includes main dishes, naan, papadoms, rice, salad, chutneys, chai, and rice pudding. Darbar holds its own...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
