Friendly service, insanely busy for takeouts. The place is basic and small, but do not judge! They are too busy producing incredible food.
The lady who served us was knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was well-priced and arrived in good time. We had to wait for a table, but it was worth the wait. We took a good amount away with us (enough for an evening meal the following night) as the portions were generous.
For reference, we had Paneer Makhani, Daal, Jhaneko Saag (a kind of stir fried mustard leaf dish; fresh and delicious), Garlic Naan and Basmati Rice.
Do go.

Stopped here for a meal on a recent stay in San Fran. It was a half block from our hotel, and smelled great from the outside, so we stopped in. The portions are good and we didn't have to wait long for our meal. The butter chicken was quite good!

We discovered this "jewel" while visiting SF and since then we were dining there every single day till the end of our stay. Food was very delicious and authentic with a nice variety of choices! We tried most of the menu and all dishes were yummy! The service was very friendly and helpful in explaining if you didn't know some dish (first time we tried Nepali food). The restaurant is rather small in size so if you plan to come during peak hours you may have to wait for a table but it's worth it! Alternatively, you can order food "to go" via phone or online. Very nice family business, keep going :-)!

The neighbourhood itself is a toilet, but the restaurant is a great wee place that serves lovely, flavoursome food, the service friendly, and the atmosphere calm.

The food was great, you have to get the mo mos when you go! Our mains were a little too spicey for us but big portions and if you can handle the heat super tasty.
The staff were kind and helpful but the bathroom is in the building next door and is not the most pleasant.
The location isn't great, San Francisco has a known homelessness problem and this area does not hide that.
