deliveries never show up.
Simply put, multiple times delivery takes almost 3 hours or doesn't show up.
Can't use this restaurant if you actually plan on consuming the food that day.
Not worth the price. I am a huge fan of indian food. So I've eaten a lot of it. I would definitely not recommend this place. We got panner makani which was basically tomato paste with cubes of cheese in it. The bengan bartha was muddy, not complex, like they dumped a bunch of whatever spices they had into it. The rice seemed day old. Then at the end we sat around waiting for the check for 15 minutes and we were the only people there. The owner was nice, but I'm sorry the food was not good or worth the prices.
Without exaggeration, the worst food. Indian or not.. I have had my share of bad food. And I have been very forgiving to all of them. But, nothing sucked so bad that I HAD TO write my first ever restaurant review. I was feeling adventurous that night (read: stupid) and veered away from my regular desi choices at Indian Oven or Naan and Curry. I suffered the misfortune of giving this new restaurant a chance. The food is NOT indian at all. It was Cambells soup masquerading as curry with dry pieces of lamb. What really ticked me off was paying $12 for apparently a 'full' tandoori chicken -- each of the 4 pieces were as big as a frickin chicken wing. Since when do curries taste sweet? These do! And, the only difference between a lamb curry and lamb karahi is huge pieces of uncooked tomatoes. You know you are rock bottom when you have to order a pizza because the $60 meal was uneatable.
For my money, best Indian food in the city. What a happy surprise--a block from the Powell Street BART station at the corner of Mason and Eddy, in a space that's fine but not much to look at (looks like it was once a coffeeshop), the best Indian food I've encountered in the city, or the East Bay, for that matter. I've long been a devout Kabana fan, but this place changed my mind. Prices are reasonable, and the five dishes we ordered were all complex, fresh, and spot-on. The chef is newly a co-owner (as of October 2006), and he cooks 7 days a week. This is my new go-to spot when I'm around Union Square or needing takeout for dinner. Check it out.
Love the creamy curries.
I discovered Little Delhi soon after my arrival to the city in 2001, and 5 years later I still can't get enough of their creamy/spicy curries. I struggle with my order every visit, i want everything but I do not have the appetite to eat the generous portions. Some of my favorites are the Dancera, korma, vindaloo, egglplant, and the appetizer with potatoe patties. Yum! The quality of their food is better than other Indian food I have tasted in the bay area, they use fresh ingredients, good quality meats and food appears to be made on order. I hate when you go into a indian rest. and your food arrives 3 mintues after you order with a giant pool of oil and hunks of chicken on the bone.
The owners are very freindly and hardworking and their dig's have really changed since the original Jones spot.
Regional Indian specialties in a unique setting..
A long counter and row of bar stools graces the vintage-red interior of this Indian restaurant. Vinyl booths line the walls, and except for the smell of curry, this could be a diner. Instead of eggs and coffee, however, patrons here choose from a list of North Indian dishes, including kormas, curries, saags, tandoori, bhoona meats and rogan josh. Vegetarians have roughly 20 dishes from which to choose, as well as stuffed naan and a range of spiced appetizers.
