    A great indian restaurant with a deceiving entrance door. Wonderful ambiance, great food and great service. Celebrated their 35 years in business and it shows! We actually got to meet the owner/Chef Ranjan Dey who signed a menu for us! He's so nice and down to earth, we even got to meet his wife, daughter and son in law! We wiped up all the food with the nan bread, nothing left on our plates. Our first time but not our last time. We flew from Hawaii to try this restaurant for our Anniversary and it didn't disappoint!

    We found our new favorite Indian restaurant! Food is full of flavor and very authentic. First time I had Sag Paneer and actually tasted the spinach. We also ordered samosas, lamb korma and chicken tikka masala. All were delicious. Service was quick and the owner was very charming. Overall wonderful dining experience. Highly recommend.

    I enjoyed a meal here during my last trip to San Francisco four years ago. So, I wanted to visit here again. The food was delicious and the service attentive. We were a party of three, sharing a vegetarian appetizer platter. For entrees we had Paneer Tikka Masala, Palak Kofta Kahmiri and Kofta Shah Jahani. We were all interested in the Thali combination dinners, but they were not available. Given prices at other nearby restaurants, the cost for our meal was relatively reasonable.

    Hello, Our staff visit each table multiple times during the course of the meal, to ask guests if they are enjoying their evening. That is the best time to let us know if you feel there is something not right with your meal, so that we can remedy the situation. Different guests have different preferences, and we can adapt a dish if a guest lets us know at the time they are dining.

    We ordered Garlic Naan. Since we know about Indian restaurants, we specifically asked about the number of pieces that they make if we order 1 Naan. Server as well as the owner answered it's 1 piece per Naan. So we ordered 4 Naans in total for 2 of us. We got shocked to see the chef brought us 16 pieces of Naan. When enquired, the owner simply said it's a miscommunication and restaurant is not responsible. The attitude he shown was really worst, so does the quality and taste of the food (Garlic Naan and Paneer masala). They are greedy and cunning. not worth to visit here.

    Chef choice food is horribly bad. Too much of tamarind and useless sour taste in gobi. Had a bad experience overall
    New Delhi RestaurantResponded on 4 June 2023
    Chef Tasting Menu is one of the most popular offerings. I understand that the menu may not fit the palate of someone looking for staple chicken masala. Diners visit a restaurant for the chef’s twist on the dish. The Spicy Madras Tamarind Chicken and Lemon Mustard Cauliflower are some of the flavorful and popular dishes. I understand it may not fit an individual’s personal taste. Next time, please let us know so we can tweak the dishes, since we visit your table multiple times while dining.

    Wonderful dining, excellent food, good service, beautiful interior.
    New Delhi RestaurantResponded on 31 May 2023
    It's really heartening to read your appreciation of the cuisine, service, and interiors, Joan. Interestingly, the historic dining hall where you enjoyed your meal, is mostly unchanged since it was built over 100-years ago. It is a pristine example of the Beaux-Arts style of architecture prevalent in San Francisco at the time, and one of the reasons the City of San Francisco awarded us the rare honor of "Legacy Business" status. I hope to see you again! Please give me a head up when here.

    We read the reviews and thought, this might be a great place. We were HIGHLY disappointed with the food! Extremely disappointed actually. Very dry dry chicken and meat. Extremely overcooked! It tasted like it had been sitting there for a few days. We hated the food, so we left immediately after the appetisers and didn't want to order anything else, wasting our money. I would never recommend or come to this Restaurant again. Only plus was the Taj beer.

    Reenap, as you said, you only had appetizers, and didn't like the meat. The appetizers on the menu with meat, are Chicken Fritter, Fried Chicken Pakora, Fried Fish Pakora, & Assorted Tandoori Platter (different meats from tandoor). None of these are served in gravy, so naturally, they are dry finger-food. Each of our dishes is made from the freshest ingredients, and cooked after the order is placed. So I am very puzzled by your comment that our food is bad, without having tried the main menu.

    Thank you for appreciating the vegetarian dishes. With over 100 dishes on the menu, we have a very wide selection of vegetarian, as well as vegan options. The next time you visit, please ask for Chef Ranjan so I may personally introduce you to some of my lesser known specialties.

    The food was not cooked on the day so did not taste fresh, there were hardly any other customers there and there was no ambience. The staff were lovely but the food just wasn’t the best
    New Delhi RestaurantResponded on 4 June 2023
    Coliver, As a fine-dining restaurant, we use only the finest and freshest ingredients. Each dish is cooked after the order is placed, so it is not possible that something was prepared on a previous day. After we serve the meal, we visit each table multiple times to ask guests if they are enjoying their experience. We’d appreciate if you let us know at that moment, so that we still have the opportunity to rectify a situation.

    El lugar en general no está decorado ni ambientado tan espectacularmente como esperábamos por la zona, sin embargo en general la comida fue espectacular. Casi todos los platillos, el butter chicken, los garbanzos, el paneer y las lentejas, estaban deliciosos. Hubo solo un platillo con cordero y huevo que no fue de nuestro agrado pero igual hasta las bebidas nos encantaron. El costo del lugar fue estándar para SF y el servicio en general fue bueno.

    Thank you for appreciating the butter chicken, chickpeas, the paneer, and the lentils. The interiors of the restaurant are almost unchanged from the time this Beaux-Arts building was constructed over 100-years ago, which is part of the charm of dining at this historic San Francisco location. Thank you, and our best wishes.
