    Best Indian in SF! Butter chicken, tandoori chicken, naan bread, rice, all of it. So good!

  • Barton S.

    It changed owners a few ago and isn't quite the same, but it's still one of the best Indian spots in SF. It's also a little spicier than before.

    Barton Smith · July 5
  • Marshall S.

    Tandoori fish and the curries

  • Bruno M.

    Lamb Korma & Garlic Naan Bread! Omg! So good!

    Butter chicken and garlic naan is a gem here. Can't go wrong with their mango lasse either

    Arash Narchi · April 2

    Great vegetarian food and free tea. Also: you are allowed to bring your own drinks.

    Bastian Greshake · March 29

    Korma chicken and butter chicken are great.

    Worst Indian food. Slow service, meat is not cooked well. And, we had to leave our Lamb half way as it was very hard.

    Kapil Dalwani · December 25, 2014
  • Teresa Y.

    Tikka masala, tandoori, goat curry. Check out their specials on the board.

    We tried Chicken Tikka Masala twice and it rocks! Sad that such a good place is localised in Tenderloin

  • Neesha J.

    tandoori, naan, gobi, butter chicken and daal

    Neesha Jivan · September 14, 2014
  • Sabina B.

    Super good North Indian food. Split the Maharaja or Maharani feast with a friend and get the crispy bhindi on the side. The fish tikka and roganjosh are particularly delicious

    Matthew Accarrino, chef of SPQR, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Vegetable biryani. Read more

    My favorite Indian place in the Tenderloin. Butter chicken and garlic naan are out of this world!

    Jordan Staniscia · August 8, 2014
  • Michael F.

    My favorite Indian Pakistani in the city. The smell alone of the restaurant always starts my Indian craving

    Michael Fields · August 6, 2014
  • Jin R.

    Don't pass on the garlic naan to help sop up all the saucy goodness! You may also need more than one order of naan.

    Jin Rickard · July 29, 2014

    Must order Goat Curry & Goat Biryani

    Krakatau Batavia · July 27, 2014

    Lamb korma and special goat curry are the gems here.

    Don't be scared of the interior :) the food is amazing - beware of big portions

    Vera Kozyr · May 17, 2014

    Garlic naan yum. Also remember to pay after you eat!

    Hidden gem

    Jared Thompson · May 2, 2014
  • Michael W.

    It's kind of self-serve here but it's really good. Spicy Samosa, naan, and lamb tikka and korma are really spectacular

    Michael Wallace · April 23, 2014
  • Eugenio G.

    Rice comes in large portions. Mango lassi creamy rich wonderful. Garlic naan is overrated.

    Eugenio Garza · March 13, 2014
  • Vinayak S.

    Awesome Nehari and goat curry. One of the best meals I've had in a while! The curries are really well integrated and feel like they've been cooked with the meat and not added in later. Good stuff!

    The place doesn't look like much but the food is fantastic.

    My favorite Indian restaurant in the city, so far. Their naan is perfectly crispy & delicious.

    Grace Cheung · September 1, 2013
  • Eric P.

    Chicken Korma and Naan. Can't go wrong with that.

    Eric Pan · August 30, 2013
  • Jason L.

    Best Indian we've had in the city thus far however 30 min wait for food was long at dinner time. Order ahead with the app on your way over as they get backed up by the takeout orders!

    Jason Luk · August 23, 2013
  • Sarah E.

    Lahore is the best Indian food in SF. My go to's; naan, tandoori fish, chicken tikka masala & saag paneer. Fyi, don't wear your favorite clothes here. An SF hole in the wall treasure.

    Sarah Elizabeth · July 29, 2013
  • Ni M.

    Get the sweet naan: coconut, sweetened with sugar and raisins; perfection.

    This is by far the best Pakistani food in SF. Try the Beef Seekh Kebabs next time you're here, very authentic!

    Not quite the old Karahi. But still a good Indian joint.
