This really is one of my most favorite places to get away too. Food, service and energy are all so good. It's wonderful love the food of this lovely country. Go out and treat yourself to something delicious. Saturday nights get busy so worth a booking.

Superb Indian food...in Novato!
Three of us recently had dinner at Batika India in Novato...what a surprise! One of the three is a real foodie when it comes to Indian food and ranked this restaurant's dishes as right up there with Vij's in Vancouver, B.C. The palak paneer was the best we have had. One of our party then had the Thale vegetarian plate...every dish was excellent and enough food we brought some home for our son's dinner the next night. Two of us had the Chicken Tikka Masaala--delicious! We definitely will return!

Immediately after we entered
Immediately after we entered the restaurant, we were shown to the table I had requested. However, as the Novato night was absolutely stunning, we chose to sit outside in a nicely laid out patio. Service was impeccable, our server was happy to answer any questions we had, water and before dinner gnosh arrived within moments after we were seated. Our meal was delicious, the wine choices limited but a good selection.
Batika India Bistro is on my list of returns in Novato.

A real find. Food quality,
A real find. Food quality, taste and presentation are all excellent. Service staff is professional, attentive and friendly. Anyone who likes good Himalayan/Indian fare will want to frequent this Marin County gem.
If you haven't wandered the charming streets of Novato, don't miss the chance for an after dinner stroll.

Best Indian restaurant in Marin
Fantastic food, great value and friendly service. I'm from the UK where they have the best Indian restaurants. This is the only place I've found where the food quality compares. I was happy to see it so busy, and it is definitely worth the drive to Novato.

Great New Find!
I've passed by Batika countless times but never had the opportunity to go in. I am so glad I went the other night with two other companions. We shared many dishes and every single one was delicious! My only complaints are that the tables are a little close to each other, and the noise level is fairly high. I'd really like a slightly quieter dining experience, but it was otherwise top-notch.

Wow. What a find.
I ate here because it was conveniently located and the reviews were good. I was not prepared for how outstanding it was. This is the best Indian food I have had in the Bay Area. So often it is too heavy, to greasy or overpoweringly seasoned without subtlety. I found the food to be fresh, authentic and prepared with attention to detail. The waitstaff were attentive and gracious. Small but OK wine list. Kind of a romantic little restaurant with an outdoor seating area that would be nice for lunch. I look forward to going back.
