The service was very slow, we had to wait 30 minutes for our drinks, some of the staff was not helpful at all. we were not offered the full menu and had to ask for it. Bar was sold to another group and so we could not get a drink, I would recommend it only for the food.

Im not from India. Indian food has something unique for ethnic cuisine the spices. Many of us cannot tolerate the spices. This is a buffet during mid dsy. Its probably authentic and its very well prepared and presented. Its pricey. People not from India will want to eat it all. Yet the food may not settle right gor everyone. The place is very clean and comfortable and cheerful

great restaurant. we celebrated a friend’s birthday. we got there early and enjoyed great cocktails for happy hour. food and ambiance were perfect. service was friendly but waitress forgot about us for about 20 minutes as we sat at the table with our menus. it was not a big deal because we were in no hurry. once she remembered us, service was great the rest of the night.

Beautiful setting with freshly prepared delicious food. The chaat options, freshly made dosas and the entree options were as per their reputation: amazing! The fish was delicious. The lemon chicken was just right. And to top it off with the Moong daal halwa. Recommend without reservations. The prompt service only elevates the experience. Will visit again and again.

Overall good. The food was over spiced and somewhat room temperature on arrival. The service was average at best. Not all, rather simple requests were followed, like how much ice in my drink, and what I wanted cleared from the table at the end of the meal. Got the check when I was not ready. So no dessert or coffee. Servers not knowledgeable about the dishes (but maybe gone are the days when servers actually understood the food they were serving, and the culture to which it belongs).

We had reservations and were sat immediately. Service was a bit slow and our waitress never followed up with us. Rest of the crew was attentive and made sure our water glasses were full. We ordered lamb chops from the tandoor which were delicious. Butter chicken was ok. The chicken was a bit stringy and chewy. The banigan (eggplant) dish was also yummy. Overall a nice dinner and flavorful before a movie. I do wish it wasn't so dark in the restaurant (middle section). I couldn't even see my meal properly which I don't like, especially when ordering meat dishes so I can avoid bites of fat.

The maitre d clearly thought we were too casually dressed and not worthy of proper treatment (most people were in suits but we were on holiday) . Made a decision and put us right next to the service counter. I felt we had been unnecessarily judged by him. It’s a bad policy in SAN Francisco.
The rest of the staff were delightful. The food amazing. So just the front of house was a problem.

The selections were significant and we told the waiter we wanted something spicy. He suggested a couple dishes. I got the Vindaloo and my wife got the Sea Bass Curry. Both were excellent and had the right amount of spice. Totally different flavors that actually complemented each other. Add the combo basket of Naan and you will have a feast.

Great food but i give zero stars for service.

I am completely shocked by manager's behaviour tonight. I have been to this place several times and have had a great experience until tonight.

I had requested for a standard seating but were told that the restaurant is full and nothing else was available except high top. We were fine as its Saturday night and understand the restaurant was busy. But the chairs on high top seating had torn upholstery (!!) that was way too uncomfortable to sit on. We told the lady who had just sat us down that the condition of the chairs were chafing our legs and we can't sit there and if there is any other seating opening up. This was less than a minute into being there. She went back to check with the manager, came back and moved us to a standard seat. I asked her why we were not seated here in the first place and she just said that she is acting under her managers direction. We requested to speak with him. He never turned up during the entire meal. I had to ask for him again while we waited for our check . He finally came and was just completely defensive and arrogant when we narrated the story. ZERO service and hospitality skills. Told us to do whatever we want to do and that he doesn't care . We asked him if he thinks it's alright to sit his customers at the high top seats to which he replied' Oh everyone sit there just fine. ' I asked him if he even knew that the upholstery is torn - to which he had no response. I took him and showed it to him and he just had no answer besides 'people sit there just fine.'

Sir, if you are serving $30 entree your customers expect comfortable seats at the very least. Your customers expect a simple apology, forget about service recovery. Your customers expect that you don't dismiss their complaint by saying you don't care.

I am very very disappointed and sad because I love the food here . You just lost my business forever but I guess your response to that would also be 'I don't care'

Food was good. I was more fond of the appetizers, especially the Samosa Chat and Spinach Chat which were both outstanding. Not being a huge fan of cream sauces, the Saag Paneer was a bit too smooth, if that makes sense. I like it with a bit more graininess to it versus the pureed texture. Dahl was excellent as was the bread. Overall great experience.

The food was incredible, and the service was excellent. I can’t recall the server’s name, but she was a pretty blond with an Eastern European accent. She made some great recommendations, most of which we ordered. We got the samosas and lamb to start. The lamb could have been a bigger portion, but the flavors were there. For dinner, we opted for family style. We got tandoori chicken (yum!), biryani (good), butter chicken (good), awadhi lamb korma (incredible!), and naan. Everything was lovely, and we loved the variety. Highly recommend!

Absolutely my most favorite restaurant in the City. The food is consistently excellent, service is prompt and efficient. I took two friends who had never eaten Indian food before and they made sure to take home our leftovers.

Like the past few times I was there, the food and service is really top notch. It gets crowded real fast so don't even try it going without reservation. Food arrived pretty quickly for the variety of things we ordered and did not miss a beat. They constantly filled our water and asking about any other needs. Overall the waiting staff is very professional and super friendly and eager to make suggestions on the menu if needed. Highly recommend for any one visiting the SF Market Street area.

We were a group of five. We were seated right next to the buffet table where it was noisy. We have to talk loud to each other. Initially when we asked our alternate seating arrangement, the host refused. We made reservations 24 hours in advance hoping that we will get a nice spot. I feel there is no point in making advance reservation as the host provided a poorly located table for us.

Planned a birthday luncheon on a Sunday. When we got there it was just a buffet, no ordering off the menu. I was very disappointed and it wasn’t what I had wanted for this birthday. I double checked online, I saw the Saturday buffet, but there was no mention of a buffet on Sunday. Then we were made to hurry because they wanted everyone out by 3;00, so they could set up the buffet for dinner. Not the usual gracious service I have always gotten at all. And as a vegetarian there were only a few choices. I wish they would go back to regular table service instead of the buffet on Sunday’s.

The food was overpriced for what really was served at the table. Would you believe that one order of tandoori chicken was four small pieces of chicken with no vegetables or other sides for $25.00?

The physical appearance of the dining room indicated a need for some scrubbing and repair work to be done on the furniture.

It was an embarrassment to take our friend and his wife there to celebrate his 91 st birthday.
