A really excellent Indian restaurant near the national park. All of the dishes we had were excellently prepared. The breads we ordered were the best we've ever had at an Indian meal.

I was in Joshua Tree for business and heard about the Indian Food. I stopped and ordered it to go...3 weeks in a row. Although the chicken could have been juicier, the vindaloo sauce more than made up for it. Delicious and totally unexpected.

I ate dinner at Sam's Pizza during both nights of my stay in Joshua Tree. I had Indian cuisine - not pizza - and it was fantastic. The only issue is that the restaurant is small, so if you are a solo traveler you will more than likely end up at a table in the back with a bathroom view. Service was prompt and I didn't have any of the issues that other commenters shared.

The Indian food here surpasses many of the better known authentic Indian restaurants in "Little India" in NYC. The chicken tiki was to die for as was the cauliflower and potatoes with some great fresh Nan bread. Service was excellent. Wish they were on the Upper Westside...

NOT TO BE MISSED

I know that sounds confusing, but it is a family run Indian restaurant with an actual sit down area for lunch and dinner. The Indian food is really good, a wide variety of Naan bread, their curry is homemade and the Indian coffee is excellent. If you still want pizza look behind the counter and you can see and order the Pizza options.
