  • Etienne M.Cheap, large portions. Hits the spot but not memorable.

    55555 by Etienne M.


  • Caro JGood value for money. The daily dishes for lunch include a soup an small dessert. Service was lousy. Taste was very good.

  • Adu HSamosa chaat

    55555 by Adu H


  • Shri NSuper slow service. Menu has too much variety possibly, jack of all and master of yadayada

    55555 by Shri N


  • Sonik MChilli Paneer, Dal Tadka with Roti and Naan. Experience underwhelming as Dal was under done, Paneer hard and have had better roti & Naan. Avoidable

    33333 by Sonik M


  • Nirnaya L.Quick Indian food. Go in smelling fresh come out smelling like curry 🇮🇳

    55555 by Nirnaya L.


  • Luke B.The bhel puri, while soggier than we would have liked, was flavorful and perfectly spicy. For $5.75 (or $2.88 during happy hour), it's a solid appetizer to order for two people (or one hungry person).

    55555 by Luke B.


  • Luke B.The (bottomless) masala chai, at $1.99, is milky, delicious and a solid deal. Best chai I've tasted without adding sugar.

    55555 by Luke B.


  • Luke B.The Kadhai Curry (got paneer and tofu in ours) was flavorful and creamy. Our server was happy to do half paneer, half tofu, and both were tender and delicious.

    55555 by Luke B.


  • Luke B.Dinners comes with naan, rice, veggie of the day and dal (in addition to your entree), and usually come in around $12 to $15; Entrees are a la dishes that cost $9 to $11.

    55555 by Luke B.


  • Ashwin TCame here once to have samosa chaat and sev puri. Came back the very next day to have chilly paneer and chicken! Brilliant!

    55555 by Ashwin T


  • Erik C.The deconstructed samsomas and paneer wrap are awesome.

    55555 by Erik C.


  • Kevin M.Secret power sockets by the window in the middle.

    33333 by Kevin M.


  • Melanie JButter chicken. GET IT. It is amazing!

    55555 by Melanie J


  • Arjun SundararajanThe standard curries and naans are ok. The chai is good. But the chaat items are meh. And the wraps are poor.

    55555 by Arjun Sundararajan


  • Pratik TTry the dahi vada!

    55555 by Pratik T


  • Richard GarciaFirst time I tried Indian food was at this place. IT WAS DELICIOUS. Tandori Chicken Wrap is great!

    55555 by Richard Garcia


  • Abood Abussaud1 of the most restaurants i went to in SF for few reasons, its close 2 where I usually hang out, good food, friendly service, amazing prices. I recommend Lamb tikka mazala,lamb biryani, butter chicken

    55555 by Abood Abussaud


  • Torrey N.They have Thumbs Up! Which is basically Coke.

    55555 by Torrey N.


  • b k.Very average food.. The chaat items are terrible..

    22222 by b k.

    55555 by Chris Lee

    55555 by Helen


  • Alex RyanGreat service, quick and unobtrusive.

    55555 by Alex Ryan

    55555 by Jordan S.

    55555 by Razi S.

    55555 by Priya V.

    55555 by Manini Thakur


  • Veronica P.I heart this place!!

    55555 by Veronica P.


  • Jennifer C.Nice place to cheap Indian, not exceptional but not gross. If you need your Indian fix and want something cheap, this place is solid.

    55555 by Jennifer C.


  • Patrick Quinn-GrahamThe tandoori chicken is just fantastic. Just don't count on being able to finish it. (Go for the plate not the plus and you may well manage it)

    55555 by Patrick Quinn-Graham


  • Holger L.$12 lunch plates are massive and good value. My Chicken Tikka Masala was excellent. Not too oily and came with rice, naan, and a side veg.

    55555 by Holger L.


  • Jacqueline L.Appetisers no longer on happy hour--only (their very limited selection of) wine and beer. Friday-special Desi chicken wrap sucks.

    55555 by Jacqueline L.


  • Piotr G.Try Keema Pav appetizer. Spicy ground lamb with strange buns = yum. Also, wifi password is....wait for it....cafechaat (^ー゜)

    55555 by Piotr G.


  • Lee M.Chicken tikka plate.

    55555 by Lee M.


  • Renganathan R.Indian restaurant with a sports bar ambience. Weird, but kinda awesomely weird.

    55555 by Renganathan R.


  • Niketa M.The Dahi Batata puri is amazing! And couple it with the Taj Beer :)

    55555 by Niketa M.


  • Sandra V.Chicken tika massala and butter chicken with rice or naan. Those are the most delightful dishes to ask for. 😬

    55555 by Sandra V.

  • Martin Marinov$5 shish kabob wrap thursdays

    55555 by Martin Marinov

    33333 by Yogesh Trivedi


  • Kapil D.Can't go wrong with Papri chaat.

    55555 by Kapil D.

  • Kapil D.Biryanni is Amazing!!

    55555 by Kapil D.


  • Kevin M.If you're from the UK, and get the urge for a curry at 11pm, come here. Open until midnight, great chaat, bhel puri, and meat abducted fish curries, and a full bar. Stonking.

    55555 by Kevin M.


  • Mario S.The chicken biryani is to die for. I always lose the onions and ask them to go easy on the salt and spices.

    55555 by Mario S.


  • Sharon L.SOMA late-night comfort food option. Favorite dish: goat vindaloo.

    55555 by Sharon L.


  • NatalieThe butter chicken dish is really good. Definitely worth trying! This place also has tvs and the workers are flexible with channel changes.

    55555 by Natalie


  • Kitzzy A.Cheap, quick and tasty. Portions are big and most entrees include rice, naan, and soup. Great value for the price, specially during happy hour when beer, wine and appetizers are half off.

    55555 by Kitzzy A.


  • Steve M.The happy hour is one of the best in SF. Super cheap beer and samosa and pakora, etc.

    55555 by Steve M.

    55555 by Dylan C.


  • Dave H.$5 lunch specials from 11-5pm everyday . Happy hour specials from 3-6pm as well.

    55555 by Dave H.


  • David M.The Tandoori Paneer Kabab Plate was huge, and really good. I've never had cheese like that before. Almost the consistency of marshmallows.

    55555 by David M.


  • Kurt W.The Lamb Vindaloo is hotter than the sun. You have been forewarned.

    55555 by Kurt W.


  • Евгений ZМного блюд для вегетарианцев, особенно рекомендую сырные лепешки cheese naan

    33333 by Meenal T.


  • Valerie W.Delicious! Great somosas and another chaat with garbanzo beans in a crispy shell is so good also!

    55555 by Valerie W.
