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.

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.

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.

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?"
"A Negroni."
"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.

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.

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!!

New Delhi is the absolute best Indian restaurant in San Francisco hands down. The mouth watering flavors, the drinks and the service were outstanding. We felt at home. This was an amazing cultural experience that brought back familiar childhood memories of eating similar flavors in Jamaica. I’m coming back soon! Thank you Mr. Ranjan Dey and your team for making our experience memorable 💕

So heartwarming to read your comments, Simone, and know that our best Indian food reminded you of the flavors of Jamaica :) It was our pleasure to have you as restaurant guests. We are open late, and if you have a chance to visit again, I would like to personally introduce you to some of my other creations including vegetarian dishes and the full bar. Best wishes.

Fantastic meal and service! We were in town for a baseball game and our anniversary and couldn’t have picked a better restaurant. The Murky Bengali Martini was exquisite - one of the most interesting drinks I have ever had. My wife ordered the non-alcoholic version so she could sample theBengali olives. All dishes we picked were specialties of the house and the restaurant makes it’s own spice mixtures. The barbecued chicken in tangy marinade was delicious and not too spicy. The owner served several dishes and told stories of the restaurant’s history. Beautiful setting and outstanding service and food. This was the best Indian restaurant we have been to in years!

After being quarantined for so long it was great to go out to eat. We have allayed enjoy going to this restaurant. The food was excellent as always. I picked this restaurant this time knowing they had plenty of room to separate it dinning customers. They asked a few questions on health and took our temperature. We felt welcomed and safe dinning here.

I was hosting a group for dinner with one vegan and one dairy allergy. The owner served us, and when we asked for recommendations on the menu, he offered to put together a full dinner for us. The dinner was great and had a variety of food. Those with dietary restrictions felt included and enjoyed the meal a lot. The spice level was pretty tame, but he brought out a bowl of hot curry sauce for people to add who wanted something hotter. The restaurant was quiet and it was easy to hear each other talk. Overall it was a great experience.
