Editorial Review – Clay tandoori oven-cooked seafood, meat, vegetables and naan bread; also delivery and an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet.
Bad Food, High Prices – We ordered Samosas and some Fried Cheese for appetizers. We ordered Curry Chicken and Coconut Curry Shrimp.The waiter said,Rice for two?we saidYes.They brought out the Samosas.They were cold and flavorless. Next they brought out the Fried Cheese squares,which reminded us of McNuggets.Thank goodness we ordered some Mango Chutney! Next came or entrees and two bowls of rice along with some Garlic Nan. David looked at me and said,Ive had better.I said,Does yours have any flavor?Mine was bland and the rice was cold.I tasted Davids Shrimp and it tasted like warm,watery milk.The only things that had any flavor,the Garlic Nan and the Chutny.Our bill was $50 for two people.The Samosas were $3.50 EACH; not mentioned in the menu or when ordering.Also,the bowls of rice werent included in the meal, they were $2.50. Reviewers say its the best Indian Food in SF. Theres not enough space to say how bad it was!
Best Indian Food in SF – This is the most authentic Indian food that I have dound in the city. The flavors in all the dishes are amazing. Try the Tikka Masala and the okra, these dishes are incredible. If you ask for spicy, they will give you spicy. The delivery takes about 45 min but worth the wait.
About as Spicy as Boiled Potatoes – This is probably the worst Indian food my partner and I have ever eaten. We asked for our food to be extra hot (spicy) and it was served luke warm with almost no flavor, so the food was not "hot" in either sense of the term. I may have to take a leave of absence from consuming Saag Paneer (my favorite dish) for a long while...it was that bad. The best thing I can say is that the green chutney was spicy and the flavorless Punjabi Chicken was tender. Save your money and go for Nan 'n' Chuntney in the Haight. This review comes to you from a married Indian and Italian food loving couple.
Friends from India were impressed! – Ok, so they live in North Carolina.
But, they were impressed at the food (which was ordered '911' spicy- didn't know about 'double 911', which our guests would have handled, easy..) --- straight from the start, with the samosas! We were with one person who was a vegetarian and she was most pleased at the menu selection. We had chickpeas, lentils, vegetarian rice (biryani?), and another chicken dish--- and had TONS of food left over. Just don't over order, no matter how hungry you are! Enjoy.
Of The Many Indian Restaurants in SF... – not bad, but definitely not great. good overall value, with truly good saag paneer. nice portions of rice. however, both times i went, the samosas were overcooked. the naan is definitely only fair and their prawn dishes are fair at best. their delivery people are also very laconic, for what that's worth.
The best Naan in town – These guys make the best naan I have found in town. They also have a very fresh and well stocked buffet every day. I eat at this place at least once a week and I keep going back
fiery!!! – Appetizer (some onion pancake in way too dry a dough) were average, but the entrees: one lamb curry, one cheese balls in sauce, both of them ordered hot. They were the most amazing and delicious indian food I've had. The cheese dish was much milder (later inquiry revealed the waiter, out of respect for my date, did not upgrade her order to 911, as he did mine), but still hot hot hot on any other scale. Spicy food lover will order 'double 911'. Even though super spicy, the lamb dish revealed nice flavors and nice cohesion. The best indian place I've been in the city.
I love tis restaurant – this india is the best restaurant inthe whole wide world.I would reccomend this restaurant
to everybody that i know the food is exxelent I just love the saag and the service is really
