  • "It has been around for awhile and had never gone. Will go again... Great food"

  • "Our daughter chose Gaylord's for her 25th birthday celebration. We drove in from out of town to take her and other family members to dinner. The owners were amazing...especially Sharma, who helped us get a gluten free cake from a nearby bakery where we ordered it to surprise our daughter. A lively rendition of Happy Birthday by restaurant staff topped off the evening! We have loved Gaylord's for many years, and this was the best of the best! Very friendly, warm and loving people serving amazing Indian food. You can't go wrong here."

  • "Went with a small group of colleagues for a business dinner. It was very quiet - which is just as hoped. The service was outstanding - very attentive without being intrusive. Sure beat the service that we had the night before at a trendy SF hotspot. Food was very good. Nothing to "ohh and ahh" over, but very good Indian food, outstanding garlic naan. I would definitely go again for the food. Family run, it appears. They really take care of you. Good wine list. Highly recommend!"

  • "We had not been to Gaylord in several years. It was one of the first upscale Indian restaurants in SF. Since then, there have been several very good (Dosa) Indian restaurants opening. The service was extremely poor. The owner/manager? looked like he just got up from watching TV (cardigan sweater & slacks. The other (very young) waitstaff were in uniforms. The service was poor. Long wait to be greeted by waiter. Cocktails were finally (20 minutes) ordered and arrived not prepared as ordered ( on rocks vs. up). Then another waitperson approached asking if we would like cocktails. Clearly no clear definition of table assignments. The bottle of wine arrived, only to sit on the table for 10 minutes before being opened. On and on..."

  • "Loved our dinner for a group of 10 (special occasion). I just wish the owners would take a moment, walk the restaurant and simply ask: When did be last paint? When we we repair broken seats? When was the last time we invested in our investment. As much as we loved the food, I'm still looking for a really good Indian restaurant that hits 4-5 on all ratings.."

  • "Haven't been to Gaylord India since it was at Ghirardelli Square! The food is still as delicious as we remembered. They took a last minute reservation. We were seated right away but had to wait for service to begin and later found out that due to a death in the family of one of the waitstaff, they were short handed. Once things got under way service was good and food came quickly. All in all it was a lovely evening."

  • "I was lured in by the aromas, but the food did not measure up. Could they be pumping out the steam from someone else's kitchen? Entrees were passable. Pakora appetizer was utterly devoid of flavor. Servers were pleasant, but disorganized . The space is nice enough, pretty traditional. We were seated near a group of about ten people, where one pathetic man dominated their whole conversation with talk of his tech job. Won't be going back."

  • "Love Indian food but can't eat it everywhere because of acid reflux. Unless fresh and authentic ingredients are used to prepare my meal, I will have a night to not remember. Went this Friday night for the first time to this location. Knew their previous location on Palo Alto and wasn't disappointed at all: great food, nice place and the best of all no acid reflux for my picky stomach. Even made for me my favorite Indian dish that wasn't in the menu! Will be back soon!"

  • "The food was good, but I'm not very satisfied with the service. we had a reservation at 9:30 but they didn't ready for this time. So we get a table at 10:00."

  • "The food is quite good, but it wasn't quite hot enough. In fact, the whole restaurant was rather cold. There are a lot of windows and a skylight, and they really need a better heating system, or some additional space heaters. But the management is friendly, and basically it's a very nice place. You really couldn't go wrong."

  • ". We chose buffet style an food selection was great. It wasn't busy at all so I was a bit surprise that after our first round, the plates were not collected. Water was not filled either. Luckily I was with really good company, otherwise, the water thing would of bugged me because my tolerance to heat is low. Yes, I would go back."

  • "As far as I am concerned, Gaylord's has some of the best Indian cuisine in San Francisco."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "Gaylord's is a long-time favorite that I haven't visited since I left San Francisco 15 years ago. As usual, the food is excellent, and my cousin thoroughly enjoyed her first taste of India. We both love spicy food and were not disappointed, although people who don't like it hot have plenty of milder choices. Indian breads are fabulous and Gaylord's has them all. The restaurant has lovely paintings on the walls."
