We came in for an early dinner on a Sunday night. The restaurant was not crowded, but was starting to get some more traffic as we left. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, and steered us to the chef's tasting menu, which included 3 appetizers, 3 main dishes, two desserts, and chai tea. This menu was for two people, and cost about $62, which was a great value. Everything was very fresh, flavorful, and delicious. We would definitely go back.
The food was fabulous. The service was fast and friendly. The prices were very reasonable. The tasting menu has an excellent assortment of dishes. Highly recommend.
I am so happy to read your comment and to know that you enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu. I created it as a sampling of some of my most interesting specialties. Please do drop by again, and give me a heads up so I may personally make certain you have another memorable evening.
It was awesome interacting to the chef/owner Ranjan Dey!
I always enjoy the conversations with the guests. Thanks for your comment, and I hope to see you another time.
Small portions for the expensive price. Subpar indian food! Tiny pieces for appetizer. Waiters stare at you waiting to fill your water, no privacy!
We pride ourselves for being attentive to our guests. That doesn't mean we are staring at our patrons. Our portion sizes are adequate for one person. Our guests are welcome to eat family style, but we encourage you to order one entree per diner. We have served over 2 million guests in our 33 years at this location, and are recognized as a legacy business by the City of San Francisco, serving the best Indian food.
Another great evening at New Delhi restaurant. They have a beautiful way of presenting the meals. Everything is exceptional in flavor and the price is very reasonable. We started the evening with mango lassi (amazingly smooth and delicious), Alu Tikki ( great flavor and a nice Spivey kick. Try with the mint), and for our entrees we enjoyed the butter chicken and the house lamb with pullao raja.
I highly recommend dining here with friends, date night or even by yourself. The bar tender is friendly and makes great cocktails too.
Amelia, It's always a pleasure to have you at New Delhi Restaurant. I am so happy to read your comment and know you enjoyed your evening.

Best wishes for 2022.

We didn’t get to eat at the restaurant despite our reservation because the staff refused to seat us. We waited for several minutes way past our reservation time and they did not seat us at all. The staff was very rude about it as well
I am sorry you had an unpleasant experience on Christmas Eve with seating at the restaurant. Christmas Eve is a very busy evening at any restaurant, and all diners linger longer than usual on this day to catch up on the year's events. There was a long wait list when it came to seating on a timely manner, and this was out of our control. I was surprised when I did not see your name on our reservation list when I double checked before writing you this note. We wish you the very best for 2022.
Amazing food and experience! I'll definitly be coming back once i'm in SF again.
Thanks for your warm comments. It was our please to serve you, and we look forward to another opportunity to have you at the restaurant. Best wishes for 2022.
Worst quantity, worst service and food is also too Bad
I am disappointed that you are not happy with our food. As the oldest Indian restaurant in San Francisco, over the last 33-years we have served 2 million happy guests. Your review on quality is very perplexing to me. I go to each table to make certain guests are enjoying the evening. When you see the owner making an effort to ensure you have an extraordinary experience, let them know then, instead of staying quiet with the intention to leave a 1-star review later, when nothing can be done.
We loved the food! One of the best lamb korma’s we’ve ever had. We asked for it to be more spicy. Honestly amazing. Gentleman who served us was lovely.
Great service and amazing food
Thanks for your wonderful comment, Steve. It was our pleasure to serve your table. I look forward to seeing you another time. Please ask for Chef Ranjan when you are seated, so I may personally make certain you have another memorable experience. Best wishes for the holidays.
For was really really bad. Service was pretty bad too
Great Indian eatery in SF, was a good choice for dinner with collogues on a business trip. Enjoyed the sampler dinner for 2, had a wide range of dishes, all were excellent.
Kirk, thank you for choosing to dine with us on your business trip. It was our pleasure to serve your table. We hope you had a fruitful visit, and look forward to another opportunity to serve you. happy Holidays.
Delicious food served with good humor and mirth. Syrah goes well with the vegetarian meal for two. Had a wide array of non-alcoholic cocktails.
Hello, Eligio. So glad to hear you tried a range of drinks from the full bar. Yes, we can serve any of our cocktails without alcohol if our guests prefer. And we have dozens of unique dishes on our menu that are vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free. It was our pleasure to serve your table, and if you visit again, please ask for Chef Ranjan so I may personally introduce you to some of my lesser known favorites. Happy Holidays!
In town for a conference. The restaurant is within walking distance from several hotels at Union square. Cool atmosphere. Ranjan (owner) was amazing and very hospitable! He came to our table several times to check on our meal, making us feel very welcomed.
I enjoyed our conversations, and am so happy to hear that you had a memorable evening. I hope you enjoyed your conference. When you are in town again in the future, please do drop by and ask for me so I may make certain you have another memorable experience. Best wishes.
Every course was flavorful, beautifully presented, and complimented what came before.
Joanna, thanks for your warm comments. It was my pleasure to serve your table. When you visit us again, please remember to give me a heads up so I may personally introduce you to some of my lesser known specialties. My very best wishes.
Absolutely recommend! Delicious food at superb prices, perfect portion sizes. We will definitely be back and feel super lucky that we happened to find this place.
They're open again for in-person dining!
It was our pleasure to serve you, Joyce. I am so happy to read your comments, and look forward to another time. Please give me a heads up the next time you are here, so I may personally make certain you have another memorable experience. My very best wishes.
The food is wonderful and the services is excellent!!
Thank you for your five star rating.
This was our second visit to New Dehli and we had yet another fantastic experience. We tried the Vegetarian tasting menu this time and now have some clear ideas of what we'll be having next time. This is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants. The only item that didn't really ring our bells was the chai. It was not at all bad, but we were definitely expecting a bit more spice. Otherwise, a perfect meal.
Hello, Andy. Please give me a heads up the next time you are visiting. I would like to make certain your chai is served with exactly the right amount of spice. Each of our dishes is created with spices that have been blended by hand by me, Chef Ranjan. The tasting menu you tried is a good way to sample some of our must-eats. But when you are here next, I would like to personally introduce you to some of my lesser known specialties, and make certain you have another memorable evening.
Great atmosphere, great food, extremely friendly owner, will come back for sure!
Hello, Happy Camper! Please remember to ask for Chef Ranjan when you visit us again, so I may personally make sure you have another memorable experience, and remain a Happy Camper :) Best wishes for the holidays!
Thank you for your comment!
Wonderful experience. Owner gave his heart and soul to make you feel welcome — and the food was exceptional.
Thank you for your very warm comment. It is always my greatest joy to see our guests are enjoying their evening.
Great restaurant. The food was wonderful and the chef was so kind. He was lovely to chat with. Try it out!!
Thank you for your warm comment. I always enjoy the conversations with the guests, and am so happy you had a nice evening. My very best wishes.
Accueil, service et nourriture mémorables. En effet, j’ai eu droit à un super service et à etre super bien conseillée sur le menu. Les portions ont été ajustées puisque j’étais seule, cela m’a permis de goûter à plusieurs plats. Ce fut une très belle attention fort appréciée car tout ce que jlai mangé était délicieux. Repas couronné par un thé chai offert parvla maison: service exceptionnel! À ne pas manquer à San Francisco, une valeur sûre qui s’avère être un des premiers resto indiens de la ville.
We enjoyed the flavors. The Lentil soup was great and the curry was spiced just right for us. At first we were on the only ones in the restaurant, so the service was superb. A few more tables filled before we left and service was still very good. We thought the bar was cool. The wine list was limited.
As soon as we arrived at New Delhi restaurant we were treated like family. The owner seated us and served as our primary waiter. The entire staff was really nice and the food was amazing. We got a chefs sampler for 2 which was a mix of the familiar and some things I’d never seen at an Indian restaurant. For under $65 for 2 people before drinks it was very affordable for dinner in San Francisco.
Will definitely hit this spot every time we vacation in San Francisco.
Food was delicious, inventive, flavorful. We loved everything we ordered and shared. Staff/owner was so gracious and lovely. Go here!!
The interior is gorgeous. Then the menu arrives, and it is gorgeous too. I was excited. I order a Negroni from the menu, and the waiter asks, "what?"
"Show me on the menu."
I point it out, and he says, "oh, a BOMBAY Negroni." He then proceeds to slowly write out the full name on the order pad. That's when I started to get worried.
The Negroni came in a tumbler with a maraschino cherry on top. A dining companion had a hot tea that was served in the same tumbler. At that point I realized that the menu was setting a bar that the restaurant wasn't up to.
The meal that followed was mixed. The appetizers that came with the chef's tasting menu were excellent, and the highlight of the meal. The entrees were competent, although over-salted. Service was friendly but very awkward.
Overall, it was a positive experience, and with some polish, including improvements in the bar, it could be a great restaurant.
Definitely recommend the New Delhi restaurant. Heart food and excellent service.
This is far above average for Indian food in the U.S. (or at least UK-style "Indian" food.) It is also relatively cheap for a full service sit-down SF restaurant. Friendly service, good wine selection.
Good food, portions are not huge (which was good). Service was attentive but not crowding.
We were brand new to Indian cuisine & had a great experience!
The food was amazing and the service was incredible. When I saw the place from the outside we did not think it was going to be as delicious as it was!
It was amazing, the owner was so nice and the food was served hot, fresh and most important delicious. Order off there specialty page it was worth it.
Superb Indian food in a classic, elegant San Francisco dining space. We’ve been to some of the best Indian restaurants in London (known for the best Indian food outside of India) and this restaurant has Indian cuisine that meets or beats all of them. Charming atmosphere and attentive but never intrusive service are the charming compliments to a delicious meal. Do not miss this terrific place!!
