Few will find it surprising that Indian food is easier to find these days, as you may be aware, Indian cuisine is growing in popularity for many good reasons. Indeed, the complex spices and fresh ingredients are leading many to choose Indian Cuisine as more than just an exotic dining experience... but as a healthy, everyday dining choice.

Here at Aslam's Rasoi, we also add a broad palette of Pakistani flavors to our menu and we are proud to see that our addition of Pakistani cuisine has proved a successful choice.

This blending of cuisine can be readily enjoyed in our main courses and our selection of appetizers. We hope you will try these dishes in addition to our inventive Indian Cuisine.

Possibly my favorite Indian food restaurant ever! I live in So Cal and make it a point to dine @ Aslam's whenever I'm in the Bay Area - which isn't frequently enough, if you ask me! Food is fresh, tasty, authentic and priced right!

Aslam’s is the best Indian food in San Francisco and the best I’ve ever had, anywhere in the country. Aslam is back there in the kitchen, creating these savory delicious dishes with loving care so the quality and taste is consistent any time you go. I moved away ten years ago and I dream about Aslam’s cooking. Obviously, I make a point to dine there every time I visit and I’m always treated like family. Just cannot say enough about this awesome restaurant and owner/chef Aslam!

This was my 2nd visit to Aslam's Rasoi. I was so pleasantly surprised the first time, I could not wait to return. I had the Mixed Tandoori both time. The fish and prawns especially were amazing, perfectly prepared. Loved the vegetables on which they were served. Had the roasted eggplant in addition and it was very flavorful. With a nice kick. Shall definitely return and venture to other items on the menu.

Had an early dinner with 2 kids who only eat moderate spices. That often means bland Indian food. Not here! The best Indian food I've had outside of NY. Our waitress and the staff provided great service even bringing additional rice and raita and complimentary mango lasso. We sat at a window table looking out at the traffic on Valencia. I've found my Indian spot in SF!

I have been going to Aslam's Rasoi foir many years. The food was and remains fantastic. It is a lovely room which used to be timeless ,like you were in Jakarta ,Kolkata or Kathmandu which made it seem like a cool refuge in a warm country with its really high ceiling fans and arches. I really preferred the previous hand-painted , brightly colored , more beautiful and funky Indian /Hindu/Pakastani/Buddhist decor and ambience to the attempt to attract techies with the boring flat dull gray /somber / uninspired "modern " drek that now passes for San Francisco interior (removing all cultural colors & symbols) .

Good, well done food. I liked the masala nimbu paani (limeade).

Slow/no service though. We were placed in a corner and no one ever came. We had to ask for water after waiting like 10 minutes. Then we had to ask for someone to come take our order. This was at 9pm on Saturday night so it was a little busy but they could have at least given us water.

They were also playing loud punjabi music. When we asked them to turn it down, they obliged so our group was thankful for that.

Love this place. Best Indian in San Francisco. Rec'd the chicken tikka masala and the samosas. Sitting in the window is great for Mission people watching. This is a family owned and run business.

We arrived at 7:15 and the restaurant was pretty quiet. We ordered our food and it arrived quickly, the staff was super friendly and attentive. We ordered the appetizer sampler, it's a bit small so I would recommend 1 for 2 people to share, we were a table of 4 so we should have ordered another, but the food came pretty quick so it wasn't an issue. We ordered the Lamb Vindaloo, Chicken Tikka, Paneer Tikka Masala, and the Chicken Tikka Masala and a side of rice to share. It was all delicious! We also ended up ordering 3 orders of the Garlic Naan, it was so good, we kept ordering more. Overall, such a cute place with delicious food. I'll definitely go back! So glad we picked this place over DOSA.

This used to be my favorite for Indian food in SF but I'm afraid i'll no longer be coming back.

The remodeled dining room was so noisy we had to yell at one another and even then it was difficult to hear. We couldn't wait to leave, the noise was so disruptive.

The food was just ok. Our tandoori chicken (a $22 dish) was over cooked and dry/chewy. The kitchen seems to have lost its passion for consistency, quality and bold flavor.

They were understaffed that night, too. It was hard to get the attention of staff to even let them know something was wrong. That was really frustrating.

The whole experience was a fail.

It is unlikely we will return. With so many Indian restaurants to choose from, I can't see risking another bad experience at Aslam's Rasoi.

This was our second visit - it has gone down in regards to food - not hot in temperature particularly rice - sat out too long?

We've been to Aslam's Rasoi in the past for large parties but have never had this bad of an experience with the service before. The restaurant was maybe 50% full but the kitchen seemed to be focusing on take out orders. We had to flag waiters down every time we wanted something they were never proactive. We got our appetizers more then 10 minutes apart even though we ordered them all at once. All of our dinner was spread out over 15 minutes being brought out and we continually had to ask them to bring out our remaining food. Our last order of bread came out AFTER we had finished all of our entrees. The food was great but the service soured our entire dinner. And of course we had a party of 8 so we were automatically charged tip. Not sure we would go back with a group again.

Being from London we had pretty high standards for an Indian restaurant. Raslam's was good. The lamb chops were juicy and the naan was freshly made and not too bready. The other dishes were decent. The Prawn madras was tasty but the prawns were very small and none of the curries had any vegetables in them which was a bit disappointing. I think if you're craving a curry then it's a good place to go but if you want something truly exceptional with the complexity of a real Indian/Pakistani dish then you may be disappointed.
